Gift Guide & Giveaway for Dad

GIFT RECEIVED: Golf tees (and you don’t play golf)

GIFT TO GIVE YOURSELF: New books by hilarious, insightful dads

Between the golf accessories, novelty clothing, or monogrammed anything, sometimes you wonder if your family gets you at all. Well, these two authors and dads get fatherhood. They also get you laughing, relating, thinking, and making lots of cocktails.

Drinks for Mundane Tasks: 70 Cocktail Recipes for Everyday Chores finds author David Vienna mixing his acerbic wit with the banality of life, then pairing it with an appropriately named (and flavored) cocktail. Cleaning out the garage? Clipping your toenails? Waiting for water to boil? This book has the drink for that. Available from Amazon. $16.48

In Man vs. Child: One Dad’s Guide to the Weirdness of Parenting, author Doug Moe combines his comedic chops from his time with the Upright Citizens Brigade and his fatherhood chops from his time as a dad since 2006. The end result is a sassy and sardonic (yet sweet) volume of insights into dadhood. Chapters include “How to Fold a Stroller”,  “Quiz: Is My Child Too Annoying for This Restaurant” and “Kids Music is Bad and it Only Comes in Three Varieties.”  Available from Amazon. $13.95

  1. Daniel says:

    I was given a Mother’s Day card, in addition to a Father’s Day card. Because apparently only Mother’s Day cards can tell someone they’re a caring and nurturing parent.

  2. I got a nose hair trimmer, which I asked for a few years ago. They all thought I was kidding. I wasn’t.

  3. Ariel Isenberg says:

    I guess I’m lucky because I can’t think of any rotten gifts! I have many years left to get a crappy one though.

  4. Ben Rudolph says:

    My wife does a great job helping the kids get me gifts. So luckily they have all been really good.

  5. joel says:

    The “sleep in” that ended before 8am.

  6. joel says:
