Dads don't get the same amount of shine that moms do, so why not make up for previous years where you got your father a desultory striped necktie or -- even worse -- a new set of power tools? Consult our Father's Day edition of the Freshness Grid, and get your pops something fanciful or sensible. Either way, your pops will appreciate the gesture.
