Research and market surveys show that moms tend to be showered with gifts and attention on Mother's Day. Dads, not so much. According to the National Retail Federation, Americans spend an average of $130 on Mother's Day. This year, they will spend an average of $90.89 for Dad today.so moms get more loot. seems okay to me, they're prettier. (usually.) but i have to admit, i read this and thought, "90 bucks!? wow, am i a cheap-skate!"
my dad got a greeting card with dick vitale telling him he was a "dipsy doodle dunk-a-roo," dinner at a cheap local diner, and a quick discussion of socialized medicine. (check this morning's new york times, paw.)
what'd ya give your dad?
