Have you bought your dad a gift for Father’s Day this Sunday? No? NOW who’s being emotionally unavailable?

A new survey asked more than 1,000 dads what gifts they want for Father’s Day . . . and what they DON’T want.

The top seven things they want are: A trip . . . tickets to a sporting event . . . power tools . . . an iPad . . . a watch . . . beer . . . and barbecue gear.

And the top four things they really DON’T want are: A gym membership . . . underwear . . . socks . . . and ties.

And they’re REALLY not kidding about the whole “I don’t want a gym membership” thing. 92% of dads say that would be a terrible gift, which makes it three times worse than the runner up, underwear and socks.
