6 On Your Side Answers: Perfect Father’s Day gift ideas

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Did you know a tie was the original Father’s Fay gift? Father’s Day was first celebrated in 1910 in Spokane, Washington, and fathers were given a tie. Now people buy all sorts of things for fathers.

Celeste in Rockwood asks: “Do you have some Father’s Fay gift ideas that might interest my dad?”

Buying the perfect Father’s Day gift can sometimes be incredibly difficult. A fancy sports car will always top the list, right?

Of course, it’s always simple to take the easy way out with a tie or coffee mug, but why not do something do really special for the old fellow this year?
