Every Father’s Day, we’re bombarded with advertisements that tell us what to get dad for a gift. And let’s be honest, some of it is really cool stuff! But, we asked actual dads what they want for Father’s Day this year. This isn’t a sponsored post. We’re not endorsing any products. This is what real dads want for Father’s Day.
I’d love to actually sleep in but that’s not going to happen. Simply put, I just want some time with my kids. They are the reason I am celebrated on this day.– Willy (real dad)
A weed whacker, homemade green chili casserole, homemade peach cobbler a tall glass of whiskey, and some good time with my family– all of which I will be getting.– Josh (real dad)
More time. This Father’s Day, I’d like to spend some undistracted time with my family. No projects, no work, just some good food and uninterrupted time together.– Danny (real dad)
I want to sleep in a little, with a quiet house (I ask for this every year). But then I want to spend the day with my wife and kids – hiking up in the mountains and searching for a few geocaches. I want to create more memories. I realize more and more each Father’s Day that memories with my family are fleeting (my wife, my kids, my siblings, and my own dad). So, I just want more memories to tuck away and revisit. A nice bourbon on the rocks wouldn’t offend me, either.– Mike (real dad)
Quality time with two busy teenagers is always at a premium. Getting outdoors with them on a hike or on the tennis court is all I want. Away from phones and screens and all the distractions and craziness 2020 is sending our way.– Jonathan (real dad)
I’d love some quality time with my wife and kids. And I’d like them to take a moment to recognize how hard it is being a good dad. Wouldn’t mind some good beer or whisky. And sex, of course.– Daniel (real dad)
I just want to see my kids play baseball again.– David (real dad)
