Who says dads don’t care about Father’s Day? A new poll shows that 57% of dad say that Father’s Day is their favorite day of the year. But here’s the real question: What does dad want for Father’s Day?

Topping the list is something very sweet, sentimental, and simple. Forty-seven percent of fathers in the survey said they just want a phone call from their kids. Other gifts on the list do cost a little more money, though:

  • Phone call from their child (47%)
  • Steak dinner (41%)
  • Peace and quiet (38%)
  • Taking in a ball game with the family (38%)
  • An ice cold beer or two (35%)

  • Watch whatever I want on TV (34%)
