Father’s day originates back to the early 1900s when Sonora Smart Dodd wanted to show extra appreciation for her single father on his birthday, a war veteran who raised her and her five siblings.

Dodd inspired the first ever Father’s Day sermon, which took place on June 19th, 1910. And in 1966, president Johnson officially recognized the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day.

It’s now a widely recognized annual celebration to show appreciation for paternal figures and shower them with gifts. Usually, a card and a pair of socks.

Father’s Day spending accounts for nearly $12 billion each year in the United States. While this sounds like a lot, it’s only half of what gets spent on Mother’s Day. But that doesn’t mean dads aren’t important!

So much so, that sometimes, a card just won’t cut it. To go above and beyond cards and socks, keep reading for a list of five weird Father’s Day gifts to make your dad laugh.

1. Meaty Bouquets

Flowers are great and all. But let’s be honest, most dads couldn’t care less about a nice-smelling, carefully designed arrangement of lilies and daisies.

Instead, might he not appreciate a more manly, meaty approach? There are a variety of companies offering “meat bouquets”, made of beef jerky, salami or even steak.
