Dads can sometimes be the hardest to buy for, especially when you’re trying to stay within your budget. I’ve scoured online deals for some special items that will be meaningful to him without breaking the bank! Check out these Father’s Day gift ideas on a budget.
Father’s Day Gift Ideas on a Budget
Roku Express, $24 (reg. $29.99)
I have shared our love for the Roku numerous times, if you haven’t made the switch to streaming video content now is the time! You give it to him in the name of love and in return you can start to wean him off the cable and save on bills.
Quadcopter Drone with 1080P Camera – $49.99
-10% off digital coupon
Dads aren’t too grown for toys! Everyone will love going outside with him and trying this out. This model has great reviews and is totally on budget (if it feels like a splurge just look at the $1K+ versions).
Pocket Knife & Fire Starter Set, $9.99 (reg. $29.99)
If you know a dad who loves the outdoors, this could be the perfect gift.
Planet Barbecue! $11.41 (reg. $22.95)
Catch this guy every Saturday on PBS! His meals are delicious and my husband is slightly envious of the 12 grills going behind him throughout the show. I’m pretty sure he never uses a kitchen to cook anything!
Pre-Tied Bow Tie Sets – $12.99
Help dad stay up on trends by switching him from the land of traditional neck ties to bow ties. There are tons of designs and colors to pick from.
Bocce Ball Set, With Case – $40.69
This is a family tradition to play whenever we are all together, at the beach or in a back yard. It’s easy enough for kids to play and a game adults enjoy, too.
Note: Some sets on Amazon have 4 balls in two different colors. That is a different way to play and limits the number of players. You really want 4 different colors with 2 balls each.
Wireless Weather Station – $129.99
-$10 off digital coupon
Let Dad be his own meteorologist with a personal weather station. This particular station tracks, temperature, rain, humidity, air pressure, wind, and displays moon phase. Also for the price this is the cheapest and best rated unit you can find!
Rite in the Rain Stapled Mini Notebook – 3 Pack, $9.45
These are fun little memo books for note taking, list making dads. As the name implies you can write even when the pages are wet!
Ab Roller Wheel Equipment – $25.99 (reg. $30)
While it’s not a gift for every dad… if you are shopping for someone that likes to stay fit this is a great piece of workout gear that is affordable and brings results.
Mechanix Wear: The Original Work Gloves – $20.23
If I ever ask what my husband wants for Father’s day his go-to answer is always a new knife and work gloves. These are designed with extra padding to protect the tops and bottoms of his hands as he works in tight spaces.
Apple AirTag – $24 (reg. $29)
Perfect to help Dad find his keys and everything else that he put places and now can’t remember where they are. This works with an iPhone or iPad and immediately sets up with one tap.
