People Spend Less on Fathers . . .

Fathers get the short end of the stick . . . according to the infographic below, on average, a person would spend $35 less on Father’s day as compared to Mother’s day. I have my own theories on why this is – firstly, since Mother’s day comes first – people would spend their budgeted amount. By the time Father’s day rolls around, you have just picked up the credit card bill and it’s on your mind while you’re out shopping for dad. Another theory I have is that moms like expensive stuff with their designer purses, shoes and clothing. Dads, on the other hand are simple beings and easily pleased. Also, since we might end up with the tab anyway, let’s just skip the presents altogether.

So, without further ado – here’s that infographic courtesy of
