Father's Day vs Mother's Day

��� A Loving Comparison -



Father's Day vs Mother's day



When it comes to receiving gifts, fathers get the short end of the stick. In June, a simple barbecue and necktie will suffice. While in May, gold and diamonds handed out over fancy dinners is the norm. Because fathers fear they wil end up in the doghouse if the kids show up without the perfect gift, Mothers have cornered the market when it comes to presents. In fact, people spend twice as much for Mother�۪s Day than for its masculine counterpart. Get used to it dads, that�۪s just the way the cookie crumbles.

Treat Dad Right This Year



If you�۪re like most people, you�۪ll spend less on dad again this year. But that doesn�۪t mean you have to show up on Father�۪s Day with socks, a pen, or some item-turned- �۝ paperweight.�۝ Everyone knows that the way to a man�۪s heart

is through his stomach. Why not spend a little more on dad and add a fresh batch of cookies to that otherwise boring gift? Don�۪t skimp on the old man. Get creative and take the credit while Mrs. Fields does all the work. Who knows, dad might even share.
