Budget Friendly Father's Day Gift Ideas

I don't know about your dad, but my dad is the hardest person to shop for. Like ever! I remember being a little girl and asking him what he wanted for Father's Day. His reply? "For you to do your chores." Yea, that wasn't going to happen! Even now as an adult I find it hard to shop for my dad. I think he's the best dad a girl could ask for and I want to get him the best thing possible. But my budget is really small. Here are some gift ideas that won't break the bank!

1. Cuff Links
What man doesn't need cuff links? They are such a great way to jazz up any tux or suit. You can get a nice set from Things Remembered for as low as $30.

2. Gift Subscriptions
If your dad is into trying new products gifting him a few months (or one if that's all you can afford) might be worth a shot. This way he can try a bunch of new products and if he likes something you know what to buy him for the next holiday or his b-day! Check out Birchbox Man, Box of Brew, and Loot Crate. These are all $30 or less.

3. Gift Certificates to the Range
If your dad is anything like my father-in-law a gift certificate to the range is the perfect gift! It's a gift that you know he will use and truly enjoy. You can google your closet range and inquire about their prices.

4. A Beer Mug
This one might be a little impersonal, but once again it's something that he will use. And you could always have it customized with his favorite saying or movie or song quote! If he likes beer he will like this mug!

5. Breakfast in Bed
Wake him up with a warm home cooked breakfast featuring all of his favorite foods. I guarantee it'll be a great way to kick off the day!

6. Dinner
If you can't wake up early enough to make breakfast you can make dinner. And if you can't cook you can take him out for dinner. Make sure you let him pick the restaurant!

7. Movies
Before or after dinner you can take your dad to see the movie he's been raving about! What a great way to spend some time together!

8. Heartfelt Homemade Gifts
You can always tap into your creative side and make your dad a homemade gift. A photo album through the years, coupons, or a personalized necktie.

9. Pocket Knife
A pocket knife or pocket sized multi-tool is always a good gift. If you can find one that has a bottle open it might score you some brownie points!

10. A Cookbook
If you dad loves to cook (or could use some lessons) a cookbook could be a fun gift. The Hot Sauce Cookbook is just one of many great books you can find on Amazon for less than $20.

If all else fails you can buy him a card and some socks or ties. I mean they always need those, right? What are you getting your dad for Father's Day? Would you get him anything off of this list? Sound off in the comments below! Check out my Father's Day Pinterest board with gift ideas!
