I bought Jess a tent for Father's day. I had it wrapped before we left for the Ragnar and just by looking at it he could tell what it was, even though I told him I would never buy him a tent. My other present to him was to let him "recover" after the race (and the next day) while I took care of the kids.
The kids always get off easy when it comes to presents. They made him little cards. They were also interviewed at church about their dad. This is what was in our ward bulletin on Sunday.
