Uuuugh I love my folks but I wish the only time you had to give gifts was Christmas and birthdays. I never know what to get anyone, least of all my dad.

He said he wanted some new flip flops so I’m gonna tell my mom I want to get them so she better back off. And gimme his shoe size LOL.

idk I’m not into buying gifts for these kinds of holidays. I pretty much only give gifts on birthdays and Christmas.

I think a nice lunch out, a card, and for us to travel to see them is enough.

I got my dad a water pik tooth cleaner thing (lol). He’s recently gone crazy for caring for his teeth (he had a bad cavity and doesn’t want it to happen again), and I know he’s really wanted one. And then I got him ear muffs for his boat motor, since his last ones are worn out. For FI’s dad, I transfered all their old home movies from VHS onto DVD. And then a card for both of them.

We don’t really do Mother’s/Father’s day on my side.  Last Sunday, we took lunch to my parent’s house, and we’ll call it a day.

On DH’s side, though, Mother’s/Father’s day is a HUGE deal.  DH even got in trouble one year for not getting his mom a “good gift.”  Rediculous, IMO.

We will probably get him a Christian T-shirt and some dark chocolate candies from Trader Joes.

I was going to get the Groupon you posted, but my sister decided she’s not getting our dad anything this year and it was too much for me to buy by myself.  Now I have no idea what to get for about $20 for the man who has literally everything.

I’m not sure what I’m getting my stepdad this year. Last year I have him a model of a really old police car (he’s a police chief) to put on his desk at work. This year, money is a little tight for everyone so I got him a card and I think I’m going to get a bag and fill it with his favorite candy/snacks.

My stepdad is really hard to buy for. I’ve been meaning to get in touch with my mom to ask if he’s mentioned anything in particular he wants, but he usually says he doesn’t want anything.

@UpstateCait:  A “good gift” is expensive.  Like, at least $75.  Games, clothes, purses.  We didn’t have money for her birthday gift, so we got her a rose bush.  She didn’t like that either.  🙂

We’re just doing a cookout and getting a cake from Coldstone. I usually take him golfing or something but funds are tight this year (wedding planning is expensive), so we’re just going to have a nice and relaxed day
