I've been stocking up on Gift Certs for father's day. My dad is gone, so I only have to shop for my hubby and father-in-law. I find that men are hard to shop for. I recently read Weight Watchers Magazine that people are happier longer when they spend their money on experiences rather then things. So I've bought things like movie tickets, restaurant certs, golf passes, etc. What are you buying the fathers in your life? If you are a father what would you like to get for father's day?

my dad passed away in early february, so i think this fathers day will be tough and my father in law has altzheimers so i am not sure what we will get him as for my hubby, i will help our daughters pick out something for daddy. (the girls are 12 and 16). i think we will get him a dress shirt and maybe some candy.

It is really hard to get through that first fathers day without your dad. I'm sorry for your loss. Its nice that you have a terrific husband to focus your energy on. The candy sounds delicious.

In England, there is an online firm called Framed Shares, from which you can buy single shares in various organisations. We have bought a share in Charlton Athletic and Tottenham Hotspur Football Clubs for two friends who were 65 and 70, and they were delighted. They get all the perks that go with share ownership, such as dividends, invitations to meetings, etc. I don't know if this is available worldwide - I presume it is, as they are an online company. They do shares in all sorts of things, at different prices. It beats socks and aftershave, doesn't it?
