Sure, you could get Dad another necktie, baseball cap, or pack of socks. In fact, he might need some new socks if his are threadbare. However, why go with a basic gift when you can shoot for awesome, instead?

Again, nothing wrong with a good necktie. Or, maybe you decided to go for the coffee mug with the funny joke on it. However, if you want to make memories with Dad and have fun, an activity is the way to go. And there are plenty of activities right here in Lansing!
