Dad's Day

A new survey has discovered that a gift card or gift certificate topped the list as the third most popular gift among dads for “Father’s Day.” The Discover Card survey also found that a meal out at a restaurant ranked as the second most-popular gift among fathers this year. One third of all fathers picked a greeting card as the number one present they hope to receive for “Father’s Day,” showing that simple appreciation is preferred over a big gift. Those consumers surveyed said they plan to spend an average of $31 on their dads this “Father’s Day,” as opposed to the average of $41 they said they would spend on mom for “Mother’s Day.” Likewise, wives plan to spend an average of $43 on their husbands for June 18th, while husbands said they would spend around $63 for their wives on “Mother’s Day.”
