As Father’s Day approaches, it can be tough to think of how exactly to celebrate such a special day for a person whose presence in your life has basically informed your entire existence. Your dad had a hand in not only creating you, but he also has helped guide you on your path toward adulthood… It’s not exactly an easy task to repay that, especially if you were bratty or bad as a kid (and weren’t we all?).
Maybe you’ve tried asking your dad what he wants to do or which gifts have caught his eye. We all know he probably just shook his head (classic dad move) and said something about not needing anything and/or just wanting to spend time with you.
Yes, this is an easy gift to give in theory, but who doesn’t want to give their pops a thoughtful and sentimental present on his one day of celebration? You could just spend time with him, but you also probably want to spend some money, time, or effort on finding the best surprise.
Before you get to scouring Pinterest and Googling away what’s left of your monthly data (speaking of dads… it’s his job to figure out who’s using all of that data!), make sure you’re remember just what a father does, what he’s good at, and why he’s here.
Twitter has you covered and these 15 tweets will not only remind you what your dad’s specialties, talents, and usual tricks are, but they’ll also lead you to the best solution on your Father’s Day gift-giving journey.
So, who are dads?
They’re easy to please.

They sometimes have a very warped sense of humor.
My daughter gets so pumped watching Disney films. She loves that they all have singing, dancing and a part when the parents die.— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 4, 2017
Seriously… Sometimes you’re not sure how your dad ever thought of this stuff?

Dad: “Yea. People are dying to get in there.”
But they’re too adorable to even question.

Well, until they go back to the embarrassing jokes.
My dad told me he accidentally swallowed some scrabble pieces and he “wasn’t looking forward to his next vowel movement.” #DadQuotes— Kelsey Raköw (@kejade) June 14, 2017
At least they’re always prepared!
When I was younger I was playing softball and told my dad I was afraid to get hit. He responded with “it’s ok, we have insurance” #dadquotes— grace owens (@grace_owens11) June 14, 2017
And they’re always concerned with your safety and wellbeing.
Whenever I leave the house my dad will hug me and say “Drive safe little buddy, I love you” and it warms my heart so much— Monika (@roseOfacid) June 5, 2017
They can even serve as a hairstylist… sorta.

And if they can’t do hair, they’re at least good for a prank.
Why did my dad just prank call me ?— Brandi Murphy (@murphy_brandi) May 27, 2017
They can’t exactly hide their emotions when it comes to all of the strange shenanigans.

Dads are always there to pick you up and celebrate.

Their approval matters.

Because they always go the extra mile for everyone around.

Just in case you forgot, they’re really easy to please. Sometimes the best gifts are the simplest.
Just a reminder that this Sunday is Father’s Day. If you can, make sure you spend some time with your dad!— Bryce McQuaid (@BryceMcQuaid) June 12, 2017
