Father’s Day is fast approaching! If you’re feeling strapped for cash and in need of some thoughtful Father’s Day gifts on a budget, you’re in luck – we’ve scoured the internet and shortlisted some of our favourite cheap Father’s day gift ideas to lend a helping hand.
Cheap Father’s day gifts for the nerdy dad
For grown-up boys who love their toys, there’s a load of tech gadgets that won’t break the bank. For the action man in your life, you can’t go past some budget-friendly remote-controlled drones or action cameras – they’re great for capturing those adrenaline junkie moments.
Also, some of the tiniest toys pack the biggest punch, so you might want to consider getting your dad a cheaper version of a smartwatch or bluetooth earphones, which can make for a thoughtful Father’s Day gift on a budget.
Cheap Father’s Day gifts that are great for tech-heads include:
Beauty and care products for the tidy dad
If your dad’s still using the same skincare product that he inherited as a spotty teen, now’s the time to subtly give him an upgrade. There’s a range of great beauty and care products aimed at men now, particularly ones that help to firm, lift and minimise wrinkles – no time-consuming regime required.
You could get your dad an extra large face mask designed for man-sized faces, or if you think he’d prefer a product he can wear (or something that requires a bit less effort!), then how about a fragrance that will never let the wearer go by unnoticed?
Some affordable, yet thoughtful Father’s Day gifts and beauty products include:
- Mens’ skin care products
- Aftershave and cologne
- Body scrubs
- Beard oils and balms
- Hair products
- Shaving cream and gels
- Electric shavers
Caffeine pick-me-ups for the coffee-loving dad
For those dads that work late hours or have young kids, how about something that will stop them from yawning after a long night? If your dad loves coffee, gift them the tools they need to make their favourite pick-me-up from home. This could be something like a stove-top espresso maker, paired with coffee beans and a keep-cup.
Here’s some great cheap Father’s day gifts that are coffee-related:
Foodie gifts for the masterchef dads
Stumped on what to get the foodie who has every kitchen gadget under the sun, or want to subtly encourage them to up their cooking game? Cookbooks are perfect for dads whose idea of cooking involves a barbecue or meat and two-veg.
Some foodie Father’s Day gift ideas include:
- Barbecue utensils and tools set
- Pressure cookers
- Chopping boards
- Knife sets
- Blenders and juicers
Cheap Father’s Day gifts for the hard-working dad
While we’re talking about dads, let’s not forget the ultimate dad accessory: a notebook for his to-do lists and doodlings. Whether your dad is the scribe in the family or he’s regularly called upon to sign documents in the office, nothing beats the mark of a good fountain pen.
If your dad is often working on-the-go and his laptop is his lifeline, keeping it safe is a high priority – why not give him a stylish laptop case that he’ll use every day? Or headphones make a great gift for the dad who’s doing lots of Zoom calls (or trying to block out the background noise of his kids!).
Father’s day gifts on a budget for workaholic dads include:
Accessories and items to cure ‘dad fashion’
Dads aren’t necessarily known for their striking fashion sense, so how about we change that. Whether you need to give your dad some serious fashion cred in the office, or just want to choose something that goes with every shirt in his wardrobe, a piece of clothing can make a stylish, yet cheap Father’s day gift. A wallet can also be a good choice, particularly for those budget-wise dads who want to stash their cash (and cards) in style.
