Father's Day: Ties out, socks still in
An Australian writer has highlighted the increasing lack of men wearing ties into the office, doing away with the idea that the neckwear encourages a better work ethic and thus writes off the staple Father's Day present.

Instead, Darryn King of Career FAQs recommended to anyone buying a Father's Day present to invest in socks.

He continued: "Say what you will about that other beloved Father’s Day gift, the humble pair of socks, but they’re clearly the better option.

"They keep your feet clean, warm and comfortable, ease chafing and stop your sneakers from stinking to high heaven."

New Zealand's Herald recommended to people that if their dad was "fully outfitted" with socks, underpants, golf balls and power tools, there was always a book worth getting them.
