Please don’t get Dad another tie this year, or one of those desktop toy thingies.
And even though spending data shows that we shell out less for Father’s Day than Mother’s Day shows, don’t believe him when he says, “I don’t need anything.” But dads also don’t want you to waste your money — oh, and they’d also like you to keep things “simple” and “thoughtful.”
