My dad has told me over and over again that he is tired of the same ol' gifts. But as always, when asked what he wants, he replies, "Nothing." If any of you experience this, you know it gets exhausting. Well, enough is enough, we don't know his tips.
To help out all of you who are just as stumped as I am, here is a list of some choice gift picks from several Charlotte boutiques.
REVOLVE: Upscale Men's Consignment Store: Brand-new Bugatchi Polos are only $25-$69, with a broad selection of colors from bright to dark and choices between with or without a collars are available.
"These shirts just came in and are so nice,"said store owner Amy Pickard. "They're Egyptian cotton and light, perfect for summer."

L.A. East: Stonerose shirts for $149 is a perfect Father's Day gift, according to one of the owners, Bob Thomas. These Miami-style shirts are lightweight to help keep your dad cool in the summer.
