Father's Day in Lake County

We asked they answered! LLC contributors asked the Dads in our lives what they DO NOT want on Father’s Day. Hopefully, we can save you a trip back to the store to make a return, or keep this year’s gift out of next year’s garage sale!

What Not to Get Dad for Father’s Day

  • Greeting cards! My kids should make me a card instead.” Jake, Holly’s Husband
  • Ear & nose hair trimmer.” PBDad, Melissa’s Husband
  • Cologne; I’d rather do a fun family activity than receive a gift.” Dave, Maureen’s Husband
  • “No gift for me! Make me a special breakfast or dinner instead.” Tony, Mialynn’s Husband
  • “No ties. The best father’s day gift I ever received was a Meat & Whiskey Bouquet.” Bernie, Stephanie’s Husband
  • No clothes, or mugs that say World’s Best Dad!” Steve, Jessica’s Husband
  • World’s Best Dad stuff is so cliche, none of that!” Mark, Krystal’s Husband
  • No photo albums or picture frames; just update the frames I already have. I prefer our annual family tradition of spending Father’s Day at Arlington Race track over a gift.” Cheryl’s Husband

  1. The list of so bad their awesome gifts was great! If I had come across it earlier I actually would have purchased the Shittens for my husband. He will be away for Father’s Day doing his annual training for the Marines. They will be out for a couple of weeks and most likely using porta johns. That would have been hilarious to send him with!
