5 Father's Day Gift Ideas that Don't Cost a Fortune
Father’s Day is a little more than a week away, do you have your gift ready to go? If not, you’re definitely not the only one looking for a last minute gift idea. Here are some gifts that’ll help put a smile on the dad in your life’s face without costing you a fortune.
- Customize his clothes with his favorite team’s logo
If the dad in your life is a sports fanatic, this is the perfect gift idea for him! You can order a patch with his favorite sports team’s logo and iron it on to an item of clothing you know he’d love. For example, if he loves to cook, you can iron the logo onto an apron. If he likes to relax in pajamas, iron the logo on a comfortable pair of pajamas. The possibilities are endless with this gift idea, all you need is the logo and an iron!
- Give him a free car wash
Does he absolutely love his car? If so, a gift to his car is a gift to him! A complete car wash could cost as much as $50 at some shops. Giving your dad a car wash is a great way to help him save money and show that you care. All you need is a bucket, some car cleaning supplies and a rag. If you have a small hand held vacuum, you can use it for the interior. Otherwise, you can vacuum the interior for about 75 cents at your nearest gas station.
To make the car smell good, one trick I use is to keep a laundry dryer sheet under my seat and the passenger seat.
- Serve him a lumberjack breakfast in bed
Breakfast in bed is a classic gift idea that’s great for Father’s Day too. Whip up a fresh batch of pancakes and eggs or whatever you know he loves to eat for breakfast and serve it on a nice tray on Father’s Day morning. This is a great way to start the day on a good note and fill his belly.
- Take it outside
If you know he’s not a huge breakfast fan, skip breakfast and have an outdoor picnic instead. Taking him out to eat is nice, but preparing his favorite meal and eating outside together is even better. A picnic makes way for wonderful conversation and memories that will last a lifetime.
- Make a collage
If the dad in your life is super sentimental, he’ll really get a kick out of a personalized photo collage. You can make it a timeline from when you were a little one to now and include milestones in both your life and your relationship. Or you can go traditional and place the pictures in any order. Either way, be sure a collage is a great way to display all of the wonderful time you’ve spent together.
