Gifts for Dads & Grads are often linked not only by their shared time of year, but also by their often-practical nature. Father's Day in the United States is the 3rd Sunday in June, and the majority of high school and college graduations occur in May and June. While traditional Father's Day and Graduation gifts may be practical, the trick is to make them memorable and meaningful, too -- something they'll treasure rather than just toss in the knick-knack box.
