    Get him a Kindle Fire if he likes to read.

    I've put about 150 western books on it for him and he has no clue where they came from. :lol:

    As Father's Day here already was last thursday, I bought him something already.
    It was nothing much, a small figurine of a football (real football, not the American shit) player for his grave. I'm sure he would have liked it, having been a football player, trainer and manager himself (in our local team).

    We in the United States have it nice; our Father's Day celebration isn't until the 17th of June this year. That gives me almost a month before I have to start worrying about finding the perfect gift.

    Anyway, what does your Dad like? Your gift doesn't have to be expensive or grand; it should just be a gesture to show that you care. I'm sure you'll be able to come up with something that will work.

    Nothing, unless I am in the mood for comedy then I will buy him a ghost pepper, and then I will watch him eat it.

    I don't really know honestly, usually most of the things my dad wants he ends up buying for himself.

    Although he recently got a Bluray player and 3D TV so I'll try getting something for that. He did say he was looking for The Lion King 3D but couldn't find it anywhere.

    My ideal gift though would be tickets or a pre-order of the Yellow Submarine remaster. It's my dad's favorite movie (and I love it myself). Maybe try getting tickets to it when it hits a local theater around here or where he lives in NYC.

    Otherwise though Father's Day this year sucks. I literally graduate from high school the day after it. So my current plan may be seeing if I can miss school on Monday, go up to see my dad in NYC on Sunday, spend the day with him, and go back with him on Monday to see my graduation.
