Dad wanted me to tell you this: He does not need any new ties for Father's Day. And stay away from golf balls and socks, too -- he's got more than enough of those, thanks. So, what to get the old man? Well, we have some ideas for a half-dozen gifts that will make Dad smile. And you'll smile too, because when Dad is happy, isn't everyone happy? Give the shirt on his back What: Relaxed-fit sun-washed shirt Why: Dad works hard. He ought to relax. And this soft cotton shirt in colorful solids or stripes is just the thing to make the head honcho sit back and watch the clouds float on by. Where: Available for $39.50 at The Gap or www.gap.

MY FATHER VISITS every year about this time.Arriving a few weeks before Christmas, he stays until a week or so after the New Year.He's his old self, a meticulous record keeper and list maker, protector and preserver of family traditions.Preparing the house for the holidays, I go upstairs to the hall closet, next to the children's empty bedrooms, and carefully take out the old cardboard box marked ''Lionel Electric Trains, No. 267 W. Streamliner with Remote Control Railroad Whistle.''It's tied with the heavy string he probably used when he first put away the box after Christmas in 1939.

WILMINGTON, Del. — Close your eyes and you can hear the father's voice as the son speaks. Open your eyes and look beneath the son's spikes and you can recall the days when the father left a trail of tobacco juice on the outfield turf at Veterans Stadium. There is no mistaking this is Lenny Dykstra's son, and he's more than happy to admit it. Three years ago, when the Milwaukee Brewers selected Cutter Dykstra in the second round of the baseball draft, it was a feel-good story about the son trying to follow in the father's footsteps.

Poor dad. Father's Day is coming up, and he usually has a pretty good idea of the surprises in store for him. OK, you may have come up with some Orioles tickets or new sports equipment, but on the sartorial side, chances are he's getting some new ties.Just as well, you say, because dad doesn't really know how to pull it together. He wears the same predictable stuff in a nice dad sort of way.We know better. Underneath that fatherly exterior may beat the heart of a fashion plate. He just needs some encouragement.
