5 Bad Father’s Day Gift Ideas

All     by Matt House

Father’s Day gifts?! How hard can it be to pick out a gift for your dad or husband? Well, maybe a little harder than you think because fathers generally receive the short end of the stick when it comes to their “special” day, often getting stuck with joke gifts and/or a tie. There are a lot of bad gifts that one can give their father/husband, and here are 5 of the absolute worst:


Slim ‘N Lift for Men

This slimming undergarment claims to be a “revolutionary tummy slimming vest than can give you that V shape looking figure” and “no one will know your secret while you enjoy a sleek, new, slimmer you!” So basically it’s like Spanx for men, which might seem like a good idea; however, Cosmo Kramer and Frank Costanza also thought that “The Bro aka the Manssiere” was a good idea.

Just for Men

Okay, we know dad is getting a little older, and with that age can come gray hair for some men. Naturally, you would like your pops to look his best, but reminding him that his hair is changing color might not be the nicest idea. Instead, tell him he’s starting to look like George Clooney as you give him that awesome gift you picked out!

Singing Bass

While they nearly took over the planet ten years back, the laughter that came from the singing Bass was not long lasting, eventually turning into a nightmare for anyone who had to hear this thing on a constant basis. Even as a joke, the singing trout is a bad idea, and once you own one, you can never get rid of it. Even the trashman won’t pick that thing up!

Movies starring Julia Roberts/Sandra Bullock

Uh, well, I don’t think I have to explain this one, but if you’re looking to pick up a few movies for your pops, then you might want to go with Charles Bronson or, well, even George Clooney, for that matter.

Bacon Cologne

Bacon is all the rage right now, and deservingly so. I mean, bacon is really good. However, no matter how good bacon is, no person should actually smell like it. If you’re not bacon, then you’re not bacon, and to pretend you are is very misleading!
