Yes, all relatives’ days are about buying a gift. It makes the brands very happy, gives a boost to commerce, and one assumes the receiver will not judge the measure of your love by the figures on the price tag. The third Sunday of June is designated Father’s Day in the USA. Different countries have different days for the dad (see the Wicki page on Father’s Day). We in India are happy to go along with whoever is selling. Any day is just as good, especially in the lock-down times.
We have a few suggestions for what one could gift to the pater. We are sure he will be happy to receive the gift, even if a few days late.
