10 Father’s Day Gifts That Could Have Also Been Awesome Mother’s Day Gifts
Mother’s Day gifts have a reputation for being pretty bad — like this bad. But a quick glance at what is being recommended for Father’s Day reveals a serious schism in gifting. A lot of what is being pushed as a “Daddy gift” would have made for a hell of a Mother’s Day gift too.
Apparently there are some out there who think gin is the gift to give this Father’s Day. While I am certainly not arguing with that, why stop there? Why can’t this be a Mother’s Day gift? Birthday? Tuesday? Really, is there a wrong time for gin?

2. Oral Sex
Oral sex seems to be the go-to “gift” idea that men want when asked what they would like for Father’s Day (at least according to the always-accurate internetz). Well, why can’t the ladies get in on this too? We like a little south or the border action as much as anyone.

Cigars are another popular request on Father’s Day, and why not? Who doesn’t love a nice freshÂ
Cuban Brazilian cigar?

4. Golf Clubs
A perennial favorite, golf clubs top the list of many dads. Women golf too, duh.

Okay, this might not be something thought to be strictly for dads but they do seem to get more electronics than their female counterparts. Personally, I’d rather get a new iPad or laptop than a piece of jewelry. Especially if the jewelry looks like this.

6. Fancy Headphones
Do moms not listen to music anymore? I’ve seen numerousÂ lists saying that fancy-shmancy headphones are the gift to give, especially if you want a fit and healthy dad (for some reason). I want some healthy and expensive headphones!

7. Craft Beer Book
Years ofÂ Family GuyÂ andÂ Home Improvement wouldn’t lie, right? Well I’m sick of getting tiny little bottles of wine with cutesie labels on them.

8. Flat Screen Television
Isn’t a television something everyone in the family gets to enjoy? I don’t even know if this should be a gift-type thing. Shouldn’t all the adults in the house have some input? But if dad gets a TV then I want one too.

9. Fancy Watches
Last time I checked, moms like to keep time too. Why are watches seen as such a “dude” thing nowadays? Put some bling bling timepieces on your next Mother’s Day gift list.

10. Beer Cake
Do I even have to say why this is awesome? Nothing says “I love you,” like a beer cake.
