Father’s Day is right around the corner (Sunday, June 16th to be exact), and if you haven’t gotten anything for your dad yet, it’s not too late! Here are some last-minute, simple Father’s Day gifts that will make dad happy without breaking the bank.
1. Beer of the Month Club
This is certainly the gift that keeps on giving! If your dad is a beer enthusiast, a beer of the month club membership is a great idea. Unfortunately, this can also be the gift that keeps on going for the giver because of monthly fees for shipping out beer. Luckily, there are a wide range of beer of the month clubs available online, which range in price and frequency of delivery. There are beer clubs for all types of beer lovers, ranging from clubs which send more traditional beers, some with international beers, or even specialized craft beers. Often, you will not be able to choose the specific beers that will be delivered to your dad, but the surprise is part of the fun!
2. Professional Photos
Whether you bring dad in on the photo shoot or just give him a photo of you and your siblings, a picture is sure to win him over. In a world where many people work in offices, a picture of loved ones is a great gift idea. An even better idea is to find ideas for creative framing options, such as reusing an old widow frame or finding an antique picture frame at a thrift store. Also, photo shoots don’t have to be expensive, look for young photographers working on getting experience or a friend with a high quality camera.
3. A Spa Day
This is not an option for every father, but you might be surprised at how much your dad will enjoy the relaxation, even if he’s a man’s man. Everyone deserves a day of pampering, and with the popularity of “manscaping” nowadays, your dad doesn’t have to feel out of place in a spa. He doesn’t have to go full mani/pedi (unless he wants to), but even an hour long massage might give him a much deserved break.
4. A New Book
Books are always a good gift idea because they are very easy to personalize. Even if your dad isn’t a huge reader, you’re sure to be able to find something that your dad will like. An good strategy to think of your dad’s interests (cars, dogs, nature, technology, etc.) and look through your local bookstore or Amazon.com to find top selling books. Books are also a good gift option if you are on a budget because you can get him as many as you want as your budget dictates.
5, Anything that says “#1 Dad”
This is a great option for creativity. Of course, the classic gift that says “#1 Dad” is a coffee mug, but don’t feel like you are limited to that. There are any number of items to be bought online with the uplifting phrase, personalized bobbleheads, including T-Shirts, trophies, and hats. However, if you want something a bit more personalized and you are crafty, you could construct any number of things for your dad, depending on his interests. If he loves to grill, you could use some iron-on letters and a plain apron, or even make him a sculpture or ornament…or just gift him a new grill for cooking tasty food after reading some latest reviews from grills arena website. The important thing is the constant reminder your dad will have that you love and appreciate him.
