  1. Yes I have given a tie for Father’s Day before. I wasn’t happy about it but. Love the Carson Dellosa contest

  2. Yes, I gave ties to my Daddy for Father’s Day … many times. He loved every one! As we are going through some of his things, we’re finding he actually kept many and wore them when we came to visit as adults!

  3. Yes, I have definitely given a tie before. He liked them when he was working and had to dress up everyday.

  4. I’ve given ties as gifts, but not to my father. He prefers Old Spice 🙂 Just yesterday I made a cake with a tie as a decoration. Does that count?

  5. My dad is a classy person and likes to dress nice. So, again this year I’m getting him a three piece suit with accessories and take him out to his favorite seafood restaurant.

  6. Never given a tie for Father’s Day, but have for other special days. Hey, I think ties are beautiful gifts; I just always add something “fun” to go along with it. 🙂

  7. Yes when i was a child.

    I’d love to win the Carson Dellosa and Visa gift cards. I would use them as a head start on setting up my classroom for the Fall. It is so much fun to get new things for the beginning of school Thanks for offering such nice gifts and surprises.

  8. My dad never wore a tie so no ties, but tshirts, underwear and now I make him baked beans nad brown bread for Father’s DAy.

  9. Yes, in the past I gave my father ties, especially when I was younger and my mother allowed me to pick out his gift myself. My father-in-law likes to eat, however, so now I give lots of gift cards to restaurants instead.

  10. My dad works in the business field, therefore, ties are part of his everyday attire. I always try to find/give father’s day gifts associated with his favorite hobbies and/or sports teams.
