Father’s Day Gifts That Don’t Break the Bank

Father’s Day Gifts That Don’t Break the Bank

This Father’s Day weekend, we all want to make our dads feel special; it’s one day a year we say thanks for all they do for us! But if money’s a little tight right now, budget lifestyle expert Lindsay Myers has some ideas that’ll make everybody happy.

  1. Personalized items. It’s no surprise that a present feels so thoughtful when it’s custom. With the help of the Internet, it’s easier than ever before to have personal sayings, art, or cherished photos added to clothes, coasters, posters, mugs, and more. Looking for something more subtle? Consider getting Dad’s initials monogrammed on cuff links, whiskey glasses, or even a phone case. Myers recommends giving Shutterfly a look, as well as Etsy and Uncommon Goods.
  2. Experiences. To learn something new or indulge in something you love is a terrific gift! Ask Dad if he’d ever wanted to try his hand at a new skill—cooking, writing, photography, you name it—with help from professionals through MasterClass or SkillShare. As things around the US—and elsewhere—start opening back up, you may want to consider browsing Airbnb, too.
  3. Monthly subscriptions. Truly a gift that keeps giving, subscription-model services are a great alternative to a one-and-done present. Would Dad enjoy treats from ButcherBox or Beer of the Month, or nice, reliable razors from Dollar Shave Club? For the bookworm or news junkie, gifting a magazine or newspaper subscription—or books on Kindle—is another great idea.
