    31 Father’s Day Gifts Under $50 That’ll Make You Your Dad’s Favourite Child

    Be your dad's favourite (as per usual).

    1. A pair of performance thumbsticks for their gaming controller that'll give them increased accuracy and a better grip on their device. Reviewers say they make their controller more comfortable, and that they’re awesome for shooter and racing games.

    2. A pack of soft and flexible flat balls that they can use to practice their technique inside and outside. Reviewers love that they don't fly far and say they're a great training tool for anyone who's prone to topping the ball.

    3. A bike phone mount so that your dad doesn't have to attempt to steer with one hand to check their map or skip a song. Reviewers say it's a cinch to install and keeps their phone firmly in place, even on bumpy roads.

    4. An under-desk footrest that'll make your dad's work from home situation a bit more comfortable. It tilts back and forth, so it's great if your father loves fidgeting with their feet.

    5. A water-filtering LifeStraw that they'll definitely want to bring on their next journey. It's great for backpacking and camping, and is a solid alternative to iodine tablets and bulky purifiers.

    6. A variety pack of Canadian-made beard oils to add shape and shine to their beard. It'll also get rid of any annoying itchiness and hydrate their skin (that's, like, a quadruple whammy).

    7. A bestselling posture corrector that'll stop them from slouching and maybe even cure their backaches. The design is pretty low-key, so they can wear it under their clothes and no one will know.

    8. A trunk organizer that'll keep the back half of their vehicle from becoming a sea of chaos. It has tons of pockets and compartments for all their suff, and it’s collapsible for easy storage.

    9. A stovetop espresso maker that'll help them turn out barista-grade drinks in under five minutes. Now they won't have to spend all their money on mochas and macchiatos — they can just make them at home.

    10. A pair of tiny Tile Slim Bluetooth stickers, if all of their things are constantly going MIA, from their TV remote to their wallet. Now they won't have to retrace their steps only to come up empty-handed.

    11. A leakproof Yeti Rambler that'll keep their drink ice cold (or piping hot) for the entire day. Awesome for hikes, hours-long lawn-mowing seshes, and everything in between.

    12. A screaming goat figurine, because your dad could probs use some more shrieking Bovidae in their life. It comes with a 32-page book of goat facts, so they'll probably learn something new, too.

    13. A book packed with dad jokes to help your father refine their craft. You'll probably be hearing these for years to come, so just be prepared for the barrage of comedy before purchasing.

    14. A bottle decapitator, because cracking open beers shouldn't take a lot of elbow grease. It uses a magnet to hold the cap in place, so they'll be able to pop it off in one try.

    15. A reversible grill and griddle that will turn your dad into the pro chef they've always dreamed of being. It's made of heavy-duty cast iron and comes pre-seasoned, so they can get cookin' the moment they open it.

    16. A Star Wars 3D light, if your dad fancies themself a bit of a Jedi. It comes with three design plates (the Death Star, Millenium Falcon, and R2-D2) and a remote that allows them to change colour of the projection with just a few clicks.

    17. A book of iconic record covers that showcases the best rock album art from the '60s to the '90s. If your dad loves music, they'll probably love this.

    18. A stuffed burger press that'll take your dad's grilling game to the next level. Expect your next family BBQ to be Juicy Lucy city.

    19. A golf swing arm band that'll keep their arms and body in the perfect position, so they can nail their swing. Reviewers say it's super effective and really helps them get their skills back after not having played for a while.

    20. An Anker portable charger with over 24,000 positive reviews and enough power to charge an iPhone 6s seven times without dying. Reviewers say it's super durable and love how it can charge two devices at once.

    21. A whiskey-tasting glass and cooling base that'll turn your dad into a liquor snob in no time. The glass has funky curves that help release the aromas and a domed center to prevent elevation of alcohol vapors to the nose.

    22. A pair of heat-resistant gloves, so that your dad can grill and bake to their heart's without worrying about burns. They have a textured silicone pattern that makes grabbing hot pots and pizza stones a breeze.

    23. A pair of car organizers that conveniently slide between their seats and the centre console (there's one for each side). Now their phone, wallet, or important doodads won't accidentally fall between the seats.

    24. A genius cotton apron with cooking guidelines, a conversion table, and a measuring table etched right onto it. They'll never have to consult Google mid-recipe ever again because they'll be wearing all the info they need.

    25. A drink holder that'll turn any sofa or chair arm into a table for their drink. They can also use it to store their remotes, if they’re somehow always losing it (or shoving it between the cushions).

    26. A beer review journal where they can rate all the ales, lagers, and IPAs they’ve sampled. It has enough space to fill in the tasting details for 124 beers, so it should take them a little while to complete.

    27. A heated neck massage pillow that'll help relieve their built-up tension and pain by hitting pressure points and kneading out knots. If your dad seriously needs to unwind, this will probably work some serious miracles.

    28. A reusable notebook that can make electronic copies of everything they jot down with the help of a free app. Using it is simple: when they're done writing, they just hold their phone above the page. The free app detects and captures each page, creating a digital copy that looks identical to their handwritten notes.

    29. A #DADLIFE mug, if your dad is hip, cool, and loves a good hashtag. They’ll definitely share a photo of it on Twitter to their three followers.

    30. A variety pack of charcoal sheet masks, if your dad could use some serious help when it comes to their skincare routine. These ones are thicker than most sheet masks, so they won't slide off their face after, like, five seconds.

    31. And finally, a copy of Journal 29, if they've never met a puzzle or riddle they didn't love. They can check that their answers are correct by scanning QR codes with their phone, so they'll know when they're ready to move onto the next phase.

    You when you give your dad their present:
