Survey Reveals What Dads REALLY Want For Father's Day

Stumped on what to get dad this Sunday? This survey might help!

Father's Day is this Sunday, June 16th, and I don't know about you, but I am always stumped on what to get my dad.

Luckily, the market research group, One Poll, did some research on what Dads REALLY want for their special day, and this is what they found:


  • 3 out of 4  fathers prefer an experience, instead of receiving a gift, like a tie or other clothing.
  • Nearly 50 percent would be happy just getting a phone call from their children.
