Or forget your nephew's graduation altogether? Buy your way back into your loved ones' good graces with one of the fabulous gifts on the Gizmodo and Chase Blueprint Dads & Grads Gift Guide! Here are a couple of selections that will make them forget all about your slackerdom.
For the Dad Who Is Getting Acquainted with Retirement
Dad's always been a weekend golfer, but now that he has retired, he needs any excuse to get away from your mother while she watches Her Stories. The Callaway X-24 HOT Iron Set 4-AW clubs with graphite shafts will give him a reason to dig out those plus fours and chip the day away on the back nine. He can catch up with General Hospital on DVR. $899
For the Dad Who Misses the Era When You Thought He Was a Sports God
Your dad keeps pressuring you to have kids just so he has a Little League team to coach. He's even threatening to adopt. Giving him Will Leitch's new book Are We Winning?, an LOL-worthy love letter to baseball, may only fuel the fire, but it will also make Dad feel all warm and fuzzy about tossing the ol' ball around with you, his #1 fan. $25
