PingMag shows the international appeal of Father’s Day with a nice spread on how their picks for the Day of the Dad. “The third Sunday of June is upon us, which means Father’s Day is nearly here! Huh, in Japan, we nearly forgot about that tradition. Now to remind you, while popular Mother’s Day gifts are traditionally flowers, jewellery, and sweets, Father’s Day gifts seem to be the equivalent standards such as socks, whiskey, or golf items… Yawn.
