This week, in anticipation of Father's Day, HuffPost was full of Dad-related content of all sorts, from gift ideas (believe it or not, some dads are hoping for nose clippers) to moving accounts of losing -- and finding -- a father.

Any of these might work, depending on the dad, but ultimately it's the quiet celebration of an authentic child/father connection that's most important. Which means: The perfect Father's Day gift is far more likely to be the heartfelt hug, handshake, or cuddle that evolves organically with no help from Hallmark -- or even HuffPost.

But somehow they are.

From my daughter: "I spent the first 12 ½ years of my life with a dad that made me the woman I am today. Even though he's gone and I miss him every day, I know he's with me because I wouldn't be me without him. I have now spent the last 11 years (and counting) with my step-dad and I couldn't have asked for anyone better."

Gift giving under these conditions can lead to impulse purchases and last-minute knickknacks that will live in storage. Since it was Dad who taught you to "Waste not, want not," why not make that your Father's Day mantra and avoid the wasteful consumer cycle?
