Are you prepared to celebrate Father’s Day with your dad this weekend? Some dads are super easy to shop for: new tie, baseball tickets, fishing equipment…done. And then there are those dads who require many days devoted to thinking of some clever Father’s Day gift idea. Either way, Father’s Day is just a few days away! Check out some fun and meaningful gift ideas for Father’s Day that won’t break your bank account!
1. Golf Accessories
Is your dad someone who loves to spend his free time on the course? If so, you can’t go wrong with a new set of golf balls, tees or even a new hat. What better way to make him feel hip and fresh while he is playing with his closest friends or coworkers. Compare your options when shopping though! You don’t need the expensive items the pros use! You can still purchase quality golf accessories for half the price of the top name brand items.
2. Grilling Utensils
If your dad is a backyard chef and master of the barbecue, celebrate his love of grilling with some great utensils or those must have barbecue essentials. Here is a list of some things you can buy: tongs, spatula, skewers, wire brush for cleaning, mitts, new seasonings to spice things up, basting brush, meat thermometer or even a grill light.
3. Get Crafty!
What is better than a do- it-yourself project? Create a card for your dad on his special day. Write a heart-warming message letting him know how much he means to you. If you want to add a little touch to your card, insert a gift card to his favorite restaurant or retail store. What a great way to show you care while staying on a budget!
If you have ever been to Wal-Mart then you know they always have those $5 dollar movie bins. You may have to do some digging but they usually have some great classics! Spoil your dad with a variety of DVDs that he loved growing up! Bringing back memories will be sure to brighten his day!
5. Clothing and Accessories
Is it just me, or has your dad also owned the same pair of outdated jeans for 20 some-odd years? Or rocked the same pair of goofy sunglasses since the ’70s? While I love my dad more than anything, sometimes I think he needs a little help in the wardrobe department. With Father’s day being a few days away, now is the perfect time to spice up your dad’s closet. Stores like TJ Maxx or Marshall’s sell name-brand clothes, shoes, accessories and more at low, low prices. There’s nothing better than new cologne, a fresh button down shirt or a pair of new kicks to give your dad the boost he needs to step it up a notch. Whatever you might find, your dad will be thankful you are in his life to keep him hip and young, all for an affordable price! And Dad, if you’re reading this, your jean shorts have got to go!
6. Everyday Tools
As I have mentioned before, my dad likes to think of himself as Tim the Toolman Taylor. He is always trying to fix those items that break over and over again instead of just buying quality new ones! Father’s Day is a chance to give your dad the tools he’ll need to tackle his summer projects. Check his tool shed or garage to see what he’s missing. If you are unsure of what to get, purchase a set of tools or a tool box to help him get organized! You can usually find these items for $40 or less!
Whatever you decide to give your dad on Father’s Day, be sure time together is on your list. The time you spend together will be worth more to him than any monetary gift!
