boring tiesTime to fire up the grill, because Father's Day is just around the corner. Unlike all those other Sundays where we dads are super busy crossing tons of items off the To-Do lists our beautiful wives give us (regrout the bathroom tile, paint the garage, vacuum out the inside of the cars), Father's Day is a day of rest. It's the one day a year we get to just relax, drink some beers, and watch sports on TV.

Father's Day is also all about the gifts. We know where guys are concerned, size normally matters. But trust me when I say it really is the thought that counts. And you know us guys, always thinking. Just be aware that sometimes the gifts you give us dads can send the wrong message. We're kinda insecure like that.

Take these 10 popular Father's Day gifts, below. Here's what they really mean in our warped minds.
