Dads often catch flak for corny jokes and being bad at texting, but father figures have another thing in common besides thinking terrible puns are hilarious: They’re some of the most selfless people in the world.
To be honest, a lot of us wouldn’t know how to live on our own if it wasn’t for those father figures — this goes for uncles, stepdads, or anyone else who stepped up to take on that role, too. And though they probably insist that you don’t have to get them anything, Father’s Day is an extra-special time to show your appreciation.
That said, you can’t just phone it in and get him a mug that says “Dad.” Sure, it’s technically a gift for a dad — but it’s also a terrible gift. No shame if you’ve done it before; dads can be notoriously tough to shop for, we know. But we can do way better than that this Father’s Day!
