  3. 3. AdWeek: The Burdens of Fatherhood Why do Americans buy Dad such cheap, boring Father's Day presents? <br />According to the 2010 Census, there are 70.1 million fathers in the United States. And this weekend, the majority of them will undergo a highly curious annual rite. Under the beaming gaze of their progeny, they will tear the wrapping paper off some of the dullest gifts in America. No offense to the brands that make socks, neckties, or mugs inscribed with golf jokes, but Father's Day confirms one of marketing's sadder truths: When it comes to gift giving, Mom rakes in flowers, perfume, and jewelry, while Dad gets...whatever he gets. Thanks to marketers' penchant for measuring everything, there's proof of this paternal neglect. While Americans spent an estimated $16 billion on Mother's Day gifts this May, they're expected to spend only $11 billion on Father's Day. Mothers received 139 million greeting cards; it's expected dads will receive 94 million. And while the average Mother's Day present cost $140.73, most people admit they'll drop less than 100 bucks on dad-often shopping in a discount store and usually buying a "practical" gift. Automotive stuff and gardening tools rank among the top 10. <br />
