Hey girl, fathers day is just around the corner and you’re on a budget? No problem(Ryan Gosling voice). I have compiled a list of simple yet meaningful gift ideas for any dad. Because most dads deserve to be pampered. Even though I am a sole believer that days should not be classified as a particular thing (because why can’t it be fathers day or mothers day any day of the year ?), your dad still deserves to be pampered like every other dad in the U.S. will be.
Ok so here they are:
- A homecooked meal. Stay away from mainstream restaurants. Unless your dad is a lover of a certain popular chain (if so I am sorry to say you may possibly experience a very long wait), home cooked meals are the way to go. You do not only save money but also time. What is your dads favorite dish? Dessert? Cook(or bake) up something good and show your dad how much you appreciate him. This is always a great alternative to an expensive day or morning eating out. You save money and practice your cooking skills all the while showing your dad how much you appreciate/love him. Check.
2. A Wallet. A wallet is definitely one of my favorite gifts to give because there are so many good ones to choose from. Online you can find gorgeous ones ranging from 25-125.00. The priciest ones could definitely take a toll on your wallet but siblings do the trick. Gather up your sister,
brothers, or both and pitch in for a grand wallet for dad(if applicable). If you are an only child or just rather not you can always shop at stores like TJ Maxx and Marshalls. You will find designer brands there and not break your budget. If you feel like a wallet is not enough you can always pair them with home baked pastries to add that extra step.
3. ONLY READ IF YOUR DAD IS A COFFEE ADDICT.
A personalized coffee mug alongside a giftcard to his favorite coffee shop
. The site 4imprint offers many different options to customize your choice of mug. Think outside the box for this one. Does your dad own a business? What symbolizes alot to your dad? His favorite sports team alongside his name? This is definitely very meaningful. If you hurry and order it now(like today) chances are you will get it on time. You can also follow this notion and order him a customized baseball tee, shirt, etc.
4.A Watch. May sound like a cliche gift but it is also an easy on the wallet route and most of the time effective. You may want to group up with your siblings for this one. Macys has beautiful mens watches ranging from brands like Fossil to Diesel, Michael Kors, etc. They typically start at about $100.00, but if you group up with your on a budget siblings the cost could come up way lower for each of you. Watches are such an easy way to go for dad because there are so many styles you can choose from. There is a style for every dad out there. What better to pair a nice outfit than with a nice watch!
Ok loves so there you have it. These are my top go to gift ideas for the girls who are on a budget and the procrastinators (or both). Above all spend your day with your dad and let him know how much you appreciate him!! Of course these are just my go to gift ideas! If you have any of your gift ideas I would love to hear them!
