Socks are still 'the daddy of Father's Day gifts'
With Father's Day coming up, many people are leaving it until last minute to get their desired gift for the family patriarch.

Whereas months are usually spent tracking down the best gift for Mother's Day, Father's Day tends to be an afterthought in comparison, though Jim Shea of the Associated Press is recommending an age-old favourite: socks.

He explained that while dads can have too many ties or too extensive a range of power tools, there is always room for hosiery, with golf socks, cashmere legwear and other types of footwear being useful for every occasion.

It is for this reason that Jim Shea does not seemingly believe in the concept of Father's Day as a way to redress the gender balance following Mother's Day, as dads everywhere are getting a pretty good deal if their offspring invest in socks.

Don't forget to buy early, though - Father's Day falls the weekend after next, on Sunday June 21st.
