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.
