Father's Day is just around the corner — but what do you buy a man who claims he doesn't want anything at all? 

The best way to show your dad you appreciate him is by getting him a gift he will actually use — and not just add to his tie collection. 

Even if your dad claims he doesn’t need anything, get him something that you think would be useful like a robot to clean his floors or something to make his life easier.
