SAN DIEGO, June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Father’s Day sneaks up on you, just around the corner from Mother’s Day, right after Memorial Day, near the start of summer. Maybe that’s why 40% of fathers have had a child forget to buy them a Father’s Day gift.(1) Or, maybe it’s just that children find it challenging to shop for dads. MensGiftIdeas.com has identified top Father’s Day gift ideas which include unique twists on some classic gifts.
A survey conducted by MensGiftIdeas.com and Synovate shows that among those planning on buying someone a Father’s Day Gift, recipients were most often described as a sports fan (18%), followed closely by workaholic (13%), outdoorsman (12%) and couch potato (11%).
