With father’s day fast approaching, it’s time to get those brains in gear and decide what to get the special men in your life. Of course, most of us are on a budget, so we want something that is personal, fun and not too expensive. But buying gifts can be pricy business, so to remain on target with your spending check out my budget-friendly gift guide below.
One of the best thing about a good fathers day gift is that you can personalize them. You can do this by getting a reasonable price gift with their name or initials on, like a wallet or pen.
Or how about theming the gift along the lines of their favorite sport or hobby. You can get Boxt Father’s Day hampers with chocolate rugby balls for the sports fanatic father’s. Or if you have a little more to spend, why not try a personalized bobble head with vehicle, for those dads that are into cars or motor bikes?
Something to do
They say that a great gift keeps on giving, and if you get your dad an activity that is certainly the case. Perhaps they have always harbored the desire to be an artist from childhood? Then why not get them an easel and pant set like this? Or a charcoal sketching set? Or even a cool zentangle book and some fine line pens for some artistic meditation? They aren’t too expensive, and a creative dad will definitely get a lot of use and joy from a gift like that.
If your dad has a stressful job or even if it’s just the kids that are giving him the runaround, why not treat him to something relaxing for father’s day? You could try a massage, although I think that some of the more traditionally macho dads might balk at this. They might appreciate a trip to the steam room and sauna instead though?
If you dad likes to relax in front of the telly, a subscription to a media provider like Netflix can be an awesome choice. If you have siblings, you can split the fee to make the costs more reasonable. Then not only does dad get to watch all his favorite shows, but you can also bond, by binge watching your favourite shows together!
Fun presents can be a bit tricky. If you pick something fun, it should also have some long term value as well. Otherwise, it’s a waste of money that could have gone on something that they would have really enjoyed.
Some popular and fun presents for gamers include controllers or the latest Xbox or PS4 titles like No Man’s Sky or Saints Row. If you want to give them a fun surprise, why not get a jump from a charity shop. Then wrap the game up in the jumper and wrap the jumper up. His face will be a picture when he thinks that the ugly sweater is his real gift!
