When it comes to Father’s Day, it’s easy to resort to buying those same old gifts year after year. “But I don’t know what to give him!” you say. (This is said in a whiny voice, by the way.)
So you wait and hem and haw and soon, it’s the big day…and you have the following Father’s Day Gifts in hand:
Cufflinks. Ah yes, the dreaded cufflinks. Unless your dad frequents ballrooms or conducts orchestras, they will undoubtedly sit on a dusty shelf somewhere, waiting for the next family wedding.
Ties. A Father’s Day “favorite” for years. A tie may evoke a weak “Oh…wow,” but then it will hang on a rack with the last 15 ties he’s received for Father’s Day.
A Swiss Army knife. A great present, for sure…if your father has to survive in the woods for an extended period of time.
Socks. Wow. That’s the equivalent of getting Mom a vacuum cleaner for Mother’s Day and asking her to get busy. Socks give dull a whole new meaning.
A Card. Oh boy, a boring greeting card that doesn’t do anything but sit on dad’s desk. Really? Why not send him some funny Father’s Day eCards?
Consider this, Dad’s like to laugh, right? Well, why send a regular paper card with a still image of some old car, when you can send a hilarious Father’s Day eCard with a singing and dancing steak backed by a band of ZZ Top hot dogs?
We’ll be soon be premiering our newest eCards for Father’s Day which are bound to top off your perfect gift and bring a smile to Dad’s face (something that socks simply won’t do…unless your Dad is really into socks. Which would be a little weird. Right?)
What are you getting your Dad for Father’s Day? We’d love to hear about a few great ideas!

Did you know how Father’s Day came to be? It’s a sweet story:
In 1909, Sonora Dodd first came up with the idea of Father’s Day while listening to a Mother’s Day sermon.
Sonora’s father, William Smart, was a Civil War veteran. His wife died while giving birth to their sixth child. He tirelessly raised his clan singlehandedly on a farm in Washington.
When Sonora grew up, she reflected on the courage, love and selflessness it took her father to raise her family. She decided a day should be made to honor wonderful fathers such as hers.
She held the first Father’s Day celebration in Spokane on June 19, 1910 (her father’s birthday).
In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father’s Day. In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed a proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day. In 1972, President Richard Nixon signed the law.
What are you doing for your father this Father’s Day?
Send dad our new heartfelt Dads are Heros ecard. Dads do so much for us and rarely are they thanked enough. How do we show dad we care? Bennett and I decided to call our friend Peter, who creates Elmo’s music. We asked Peter to create some fun yet heartfelt lyrics for Doozy members to send their Fathers. Peter created and sung the fun Hawaiian lyrics in our Hawaiian Doggie Fathers Day ecard and he created the music for Dad’s Dog Band.
We hope you’ll show the dads in your life you care with our new Father’s Day ecards and we wish you all a special Father’s Day!
