Treva Odell, an Augusta resident says, "it's not about the gifts, it's all about the appreciation of a man of their father."
"It's not all
about money, it's the sentimental value of the gift," says resident, Tiffany Brannen,
Another resident, Fran Garcia, says Father's Day is about "just showing love and appreciation."
Loving and appreciating the father-figure in your life is what these women say Father's Day is all about. Like most holidays, the day has become more commercial and attached to giving gifts. After some digging, I found a list on www.abcnews.com of the top gifts for any budget. The gifts range from lottery tickets to a 'bucket list' vacation.
Tiffany Brannen says she hopes that her gift to her father will invoke a memory which is the number two gift on ABC's list of gift ideas for budgets big and small.
That list also includes giving dad a dream, pampering him, giving dad bragging rights and upgrading things he uses; all gifts ranging from ten to a thousand bucks. But Brannen already had her gift in mind.
Brannen explains, "I think a nice picture in a frame would be the best father's day gift."
She says she doesn't have a lot of money, but wants her father to know he is appreciated. Brannen says, just like ABC, she believes in giving gifts that are practical and memorable. "I usually ask him if there's anything he needs. He owns his own shop. So, whatever tools he might want."
Regardless the thought or gift, Brannen says she hopes every father feels special on Father's Day.
Happy Father's Day again, from us here at Television Park.
