Father’s Day for stepdads, uncles and more

  Father’s Day for stepdads, uncles and more These are 16 of the best gifts to give your favorite father figures this Father’s Day.Remember to mark your calendars — this year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 20. While Mother’s Day has been an official holiday since 1914, Father’s Day didn’t become one until 1978 — and traditionally, we spend less on our fathers for the occasion than we do on our mothers for Mother’s Day. Like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day can be difficult for those who don’t have their dad in their lives. On the other hand, it can also be a time to celebrate the father figures you love, like a stepdad you’ve known for most of your life or a father-in-law you’ve become close to.
