  • Y not get your dad a frame with pic of his grandkids, or a family picture with you and the kids in it, or grandpa and the kids. Sometimes sentimental is better than expensive. it really is the thought that counts...

  • my family doesnt really celebrate mothers day or fathers day. we acknowledge it and say happy day and thats pretty much it oh how easily people are manipulated by Hallmark

  • i go way over the top for my man but thats because my daughters real father bailed before she was born..never saw her. and the boyfriend i have now has taken my daughter in as his own and he takes great care of her and he plays with her and supports me and my daughter the best he can. so he deserves it! i think good men deserve to be made a big deal. besides i dont know why women bitch about having to buy (good) dads a gift when most women freak if they're not celebrated on mothers day. men are jus as important (if they're good fathers)

  • Why do moms want a huge mom's day? How many women complained about "my Mother's Day sucked because they didn't do enough to show me how great I am"!!!!!! Doesn't dad get to be shown at least a little consideration about that too?
