Most dads can expect a practical gift for Father's Day this Sunday. The majority of the respondents in a new Overstock.com poll say they're giving their dad something useful this year. Just over a third are letting their father pick out his own gift, and are giving him cash or a gift card. But 13-percent are wrapping up tools for dad, and eight-percent have a book or two for him. Meanwhile, a quarter of the dads taking part in the survey say they'd welcome money or a gift card for Father's Day. Seven-percent are hoping to receive some tools, and six-percent really want a tablet computer. Nearly two-thirds of the kids honoring pop this weekend say they're being fair, and spending the same on dad as they did last month on mom for Mother's Day. Most of the Father's Day shoppers expect to shell out between ten-and-50-dollars on their gifts for dear ol' dad.
