Four days and counting!!! Yes, the big moment has arrived! Huh? You’re still undecided what to get dad for Father’s Day? So, most of the procrastination has to be based on the fact that the man in your life has everything! Well, if not everything, he’s pretty hard to shop for because of his taste and because has almost everything. Yep, got it! Over the last few weeks we have shared our picks for dad for both the Millennial Dads as well as for Generation X Dads! This week it’s the Baby Boomer; one of the largest generation of modern times.
The Baby Boomer generation ranges from 1945 to the mid 1960s. Some demographers would say 1960, but you get the general theme. Buying for the mature gentleman has its own difficulty because they have just most of what they want and usually have the resources to get it several times over if they conside the about it. So, if you’re thinking of buying a necktie, pair of socks or aftershave for this group of discerning men; think again. According to a Nielsen report, Baby Boomers represent $230 billion in sales of consumer packaged goods like coffee, diet soda and magazines in the U.S. So, they have quite a bit of disposable income. With that fact in mind, here are eight (8) fantastic gifts ideas most Dads want, in case you have not read the memo yet! Check out some of our favorites as you prepare for Father’s Day 2015:
