Great Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

by Emma W.R. on June 2, 2014

Father’s Day is just around the corner and I am going to go out on a limb and say fathers everywhere have enough ties, belts, and socks.  This is the year that you get your father something he will really get excited over.  The convenient list below has some great, affordable (around $50 or less) ideas for every type of dad.


The Tech Savvy Dad: Anker Astro E5 15000mAh External Battery – $49.99 – Most tech savvy dads already have a top of the line phone, a tablet, and some sort of e-reader.  Anything they don’t have it out of the normal person’s price range.  So, if you can’t get them a product they don’t have, the next best thing to do it give them something that lets them use the products they do have longer.  This external battery holds enough juice to charge up any product they have (that uses a USB port to charge) many times over.

The Do-It-Yourself Dad: Genesis Oscillating Multitool  – $39.99 – For the dad that has most tools out there, an oscillating multitool will be a welcome addition to any toolbox.  This thing can cut, sand, grind, and more.  It will be useful for every project he does.

The Grill Chef Dad: Cuisinart 14-Piece Stainless Steel Grill Set – $30.99 – Dads and grills go hand in hand.  Without the right tools, though, a dad can never reach his full grilling potential.  This sturdy stainless steel set has everything he needs.

The Boozy Dad: Brookstone Whiskey Glass and Ice ball Maker – $19.99 – This glass and ice ball combination will make your dad enjoy that glass of whiskey even more.  At only $20, you may have some money left over to get him something to put in it!

The Sporty Dad: Fitbit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker – $54.63 – Activity trackers are all the rage right now but you don’t have to break the bank to get an effective one.  The Fitbit Zip will track your dad’s steps, distance, and calories burned all for under $55. 

The Dad Who Has EverythingLife Magazine from Memorable Date – $24.95 or less – If you dad already has everything under the sun, then nostalgia may be your best bet.  A life magazine that was released the same week they were born, graduated high school, or got married would be a hit.

These look like they would make great birthday and Christmas gifts as well. Hmm

I love the Life Magazine idea, I didn’t know you could do this.

My father is usually happy with food, makes it easy on me! I can just take him out to eat and not have to worry about a gift he won’t use.
