Father’s Day is much more than a “Hallmark Holiday” for dads. We all agree that dear old dad deserves a little something to commemorate all his paternal accomplishments. But if you’re currently making ends meet with credit cards or installment loans, perhaps you shouldn’t splurge on a big-screen 4K TV this year. If you’re looking to get dad something for his big day to show how much you appreciate him, here are 7 budget-friendly Father’s Day gift ideas that are guaranteed to please:
Beard grooming kits are an absolute necessity for all the bearded pops out there. Dad knows that there’s more to growing a beard than simply not shaving. Growing a beard requires daily attention and care, so for this reason, a beard grooming kit could be dad’s best friend. These grooming kits typically include the following:
You can find a reasonably-priced beard grooming kit online, or at a department store like a Walmart or Target.
A t-shirt is a simple and affordable gift that’ll make any dad’s day. If you’re having trouble finding a nice Father’s Day gift for dad, a t-shirt and a card is guaranteed do the trick. You could get a t-shirt that speaks to his style for only $7 at just about any department store. Again, Walmart and Target sell a wide variety of men’s graphic tees, so it won’t be to difficult to something that fits his taste and style.
Who doesn’t love music? Does dad have a turntable? Pay a visit to your local record store and see if you can get your hands on some albums from his favorite bands. Independent record stores often sell used records in great condition for very reasonable prices. In most cases, you could get a small stack of records for dad to dive into for around $30.
We all know dad loves his snacks, and only you could know what dad likes to chow down on while he’s watching the game. Run to the store and pick up a variety of his favorite cookies, crackers, chips and treats. You can even put it all together in a cool gift basket for dad to surprise him on his big day.
Men love their tech-toys and there’s always new gizmos and gadgets hitting the shelves that dad will appreciate. Hit up your local Best Buy or big box store to see if there’s anything on sale he doesn’t have yet. A Roku, Google Home or even a new pair of headphones are affordable gadgets he’ll be sure to love.
Is your old man a movie buff? You could give dad the gift of a Netflix or Hulu subscription for around $10 a month. These popular streaming services offer countless hi-def movies and TV shows for dad to watch on demand. Get him a gift card so he can sign up for free, and he can also cancel his subscription at any time.
If you’re not sure what to get dad for Father’s Day, you could always get him a gift basket. Stores will be selling Father’s Day gift baskets for cheap this time of year and chances are, you can find one that your dad will love. Gift baskets do all the work for you with specially curated dad-gifts all nicely wrapped and ready to go.
Remember, finding the perfect gift for dad doesn’t have to mean picking up a part-time job just to pay for it. Dad will be thrilled no matter what you get him because at the end of the day, it’s not a about the gift. It’s about you doing something nice for him on his big day.
