I don't remember ever giving my father a tie, but he has received plenty of shirts, books and tools over the years. My custom over the past 10+ years, though, has been to buy him tickets to a St. Louis Cardinals game. Winning always fits.

Do you have a traditional gift for your dad? What has he liked the best?

If you are a dad, what's been you favorite gift? Are you a sentimental type who saves the handmade cards? Or are you a strong, silent type who tells the kids not to make a fuss?
