One Father’s Day, many years ago, my sister and I bought my dad a mug.

But it wasn’t just any mug.

It was a mug that epitomized our dad in a funny way.

This was at least 25 years ago that we bought this mug for him, and to this day he still has it.


The reason this mug was such a good fit was because he did indeed have a pair of pants that we continually made fun of and they looked very much like the ones on the mug except they were green and orange.

I kid you not.

My dad was a really good sport about the whole thing obviously, but that doesn’t mean it’s not time to give him something that can help him shrug off his past wardrobe indiscretions.

Another thing about my dad that is somewhat challenged is his lack of technology savvy. I’m not sure he could even turn on a computer, he can barely operate a remote control! But he seems interested in learning, he just needs some digital things of his own to learn on. So I put together another gift idea collection perfect for someone who could use some technology in their life.

    My dad would like most of this stuff. He is pretty simple. He likes books and electronics. He is also diabetic so I usually put together a basket of snacks that he is allowed to eat.

    great ideas. we got my dad a tee one year that said bank of dad with fake money coming out of the pocket. As adults he still treats his children, like kids

    That mug is hilarious, mostly because my dad did wear pants like that. Good gosh, I can think of a lot of men who need that GPS device!

    Ooh great ideas! My dad is totally technology challenged, too- I’m not sure he could handle a camera like that but I’d love for him to have one! {Oh & that mug is awesome!}

    Just in time. Sometimes a few gift tips are helpful. Seems a lot of the time I have no idea what to get for our dad.

    Love the story about your Dad and I can see why that mug holds a special place in his heart. My favorite out of the collection above, will have to be the gift for technology challenged – the MacBook Pro and Sony 65″ TV has my name written all over it . I want it NOW.

    I don’t have any Ebay collections yet, but I’m totally giggling about the mug you and your sister got for your dad. AND I love that he still has it. What a trooper :)

    There are lots of great ideas there, but I am lame and usually just go with a gift card for my hubby!
