A lot of dads will be getting things they can use this Father’s Day.  Practical gifts top the list on PriceGrabber’s 2012 Father’s Day Shopping survey, with 41-percent saying they’re giving their dad tools, car accessories, an appliance or some other useful item.  Just under a quarter have a present for dad that relates to his hobbies, while 21-percent are giving their father an entertainment-type gift such as a CD, DVD, or video game.  Another 21-percent are supplementing their dad’s wardrobe with clothing and accessories items like a jacket, tie, shoes, or wallet.  Eighteen-percent have a high-tech gift, such as a computer, tablet, smartphone, TV or camera in mind for their dad.  Fifteen-percent are giving their father something for the yard, like lawn furniture or barbecue equipment. 

And the majority aren’t showing any favoritism between their parents.  Seventy-precent say they’re spending as much on their dad this weekend as they did on their mom for Mother’s Day.
