You’ve probably already seen my “Last Minute Father’s Day Gift Ideas from Target” post. If not, check it out, because I’m really proud of it. But, today I came across another idea; one that is much more unconventional.
I admit, if my wife asks me what I want for Father’s Day (or really, any holiday), it is typical for me not to easily be able to think of something.
If that is common among dads, I would theorize part of it has to do with a husband and father feeling funny about being served by our his family.
We as husbands and fathers are wired to provide for our family. Especially with my wife and I being serious Dave Ramsey followers (a few weeks ago we bought a new car and already had the money saved in the bank, not because we’re rich, because we are that strict with our budget), I always feel like I’m making an irresponsible decision if I give my family the green light to spend money on me for something I simply want, but don’t need.
So yeah, I admit, “nothing” is a much more practical answer to give when my family asks me what to get me for a gift.
This year, Century 21 decided to help families actually give dad nothing; as in a piece of Nothing, Arizona, an uninhabited ghost town about 120 miles Northwest of Phoenix.
From now through Father’s Day, families can go to www.givedadnothing.com and enter their father’s name to lease a piece of Nothing, Arizona, for one day; June 19th, 2016 for free.
Then they can then download, print, or email a certificate bestowing “Nothing” on their father – all free of charge.
Yep, it’s true- and you heard it first from me!
Now, granted, I would personally still recommend by giving Dad something. But first, start off by giving him nothing.
