Number 10:

Novelty clothing: We're talking ridiculous ties, golfer socks, boxers with cute little sayings and and hankies so brightly colored it’d put a clown to shame.

Number 9:

"World's Best Dad" goodies: Shirts, mugs, trucker caps, socks, key rings, bottle openers, stubby holders, certificates, medals, cards and e-cards. You name it, and somewhere in the land of bad taste is an object with the words "World’s Best Dad" on it.

Number 8:

A BBQ Apron: It doesn’t matter whether it says "Kiss the chef", "King of the grill" or "the Grillfather", giving your dad a barbecue apron is as ridiculous as giving him an iPhone case when he doesn’t own an iPhone.

Potty Putter: Does dad need a reason to stay in the bathroom any longer?

Number 6:

Silly gadgets: Will your dad really use those new tech toys you see advertised on TV?

Number 5:

Car accessories: Chances are your dad won't want to be the guy with fuzzy dice hanging from his rear view mirror

Number 3:

Gifts you really bought for yourself: This could be just as bad as re-gifting
