So what do you give the man who has everything or wants nothing (and doesn't need a tie)? That all depends on the man in question. In my experience, most men don't really like the spectacle of receiving gifts in front of other people. It seems to makes them feel awkward. So instead of wrapping up a pretty gift, consider doing something for or with the man of honor.
Host a backyard barbecue for the family and you've got a nice Father's Day for both Dad and Hubby. Give Hubby the weekend off from that honey-do list and let him spend his time on the computer, or in front of ESPN, or whatever it is he likes to do. Take your Dad out to breakfast, just the two of you.
If you don't live nearby, send him a book you read or CD you listened to that you think he would enjoy. Don't wrap it up, just send it with a little note. Or, if he's computer literate, send him links to authors or artists you want to share with him. Whatever you decide to do, please don't give the poor man another tie (unless of course he actually needs one).
