On June 19th this year, the collective murmur of "no more neckties" will be heard across the land as thousands of dads open up their well-intentioned, but perhaps not very well-considered, Father's Day gifts. But seriously, what are we -- whether daughter, son, grandchild, wife, husband, or sibling of a father -- supposed to do, especially if we have something green in mind? It's a mystery that has baffled generations for ages and been pondered by many: Why are fathers so impossible to shop for?

Well, fret not. We're here to help. We've gathered up a newly updated range of father-friendly green gifts to ease your shopping struggles -- and maybe come Father's Day this year, all we'll hear is a collective sigh of relief.
