father's day poster2

Fathers day (16 June, 2013)  is a very important day that should be treated with honor. It is a day set apart to acknowledge the figure head,provider and decision maker of the family.

Its been said that most children are endeared to their mothers,but that’s because the fathers brain is sooo busy trying to hit one contract or the other to put food on the table,pay the fees of some really expensive school to give you the best, and gives you the cash to buy those cool designer outfits in vogue ;) ..

He worries when your sick ,even though he doesn’t run around wailing and being apprehensive as the mother would. He foots the bill and worries in his heart, cuz ‘big boys don’t cry’, but trust me,he’s scared to teeth.

We have to take this special time out to appreciate them. We all know getting male gifts at times might be a bit difficult, so i have compiled a gift list, with the help of a few other people on what you can give your daddy that he’s sure to like and appreciate.
