Father’s Day Gifts Boost Retail Sales

Last-minute shoppers will be hitting the stores this week and picking up gifts for fathers, husbands, grandfathers and sons.

It is the time of year where the retail sector gets a holiday boost.

Jill Schlesinger from CBS Moneywatch.com talks about that and a few gift ideas for dad too.

    It is much more meaningful to give father a gift of yourself or a gift of time. Wash his car, and wax it, change the oil, mow the yard, make his favorite meal or take him out to eat. Play a game of whist or euchre or cribbage with him. These are true gifts from the heart. Most of us don’t need more “things” made in another country. We need the gift of love and each other. Some special attention just for dad on his day.

      You are absolutely correct! Life is too short. My father died 23 years ago and I still miss him terribly. I would give anything to have a few more precious minutes with him, to tell him how much he means to me, and wish him a “happy Father’s Day.” Time is truly the best gift.
