    35 Cheap Things To Treat Your Dad To This Father's Day

    You, seeing the great gifts you can get under $25: "I'm impressed!" Your dad: "Hi Impressed, I'm Dad!"

    Hey! While we try to keep our posts updated as much as we can, this post was last updated in 2019, so we can't guarantee that the pricing and/or availability of the products featured are accurate. Check out the 2020 version of this post for our most up-to-date Father's Day gift recommendations!

    1. A heartfelt fill-in-the-blank journal that'll make even the most aloof dads melt.

    2. Anatomy of a Song: The Oral History of 45 Iconic Hits That Changed Rock, R&B and Pop by music historian Marc Myers, a book that'll give any music-loving dad an inside look at the making of some of his favorite tunes.

    3. A mouth-watering gift box of spices and seasonings to make his home-cooked meals and grill creations even better (which you honestly didn't know was possible).

    4. A punny card to prove that he's not the only one who can make dad jokes.

    5. Or if you want to go the sentimental route, a card that's pretty cheesy — but something tells me he'll still love it.

    6. A sharp-looking waterproof watch he'll probably think you spent a ton of money on.

    7. A sophisticaped map-etched glass so he can sip his favorite beverage while appreciating his favorite city. Because if your dad is anything like mine, the only thing he enjoys more than a cold drink is geeking out over maps.

    8. A handy smart plug that truly lives up to its name: your dad can sync it with his smart home devices or control it through an app to easily turn lights and appliances on and off. He'll never have to yell at anyone to turn the damn lights off ever again!

    9. A sweet guitar pick worthy of any dad who totally rocks.

    10. A 20-page mini photo booklet full of favorite pictures and personal messages for a keepsake he'll treasure forever (and one that's actually in your budget).

    11. Some fancy dark chocolate almonds sure to be the ~sweetest~ gift he's ever received.

    12. A Big Book of Burgers cookbook that'll have him grilling up more creative patties than Bob Belcher himself.

    13. A super-challenging 1,000-piece road sign jigsaw puzzle that'll allow him to take a road trip from the comfort of his living room.

    14. A sheet of custom stickers featuring the face of a family member or pet for a gift that'll stick out from the basic cards your siblings sent.

    15. A pair of socks for the man who confidently owns every terrible one-liner that has ever come out of his mouth.

    16. Mike's Hot Honey, an all-natural, chili-infused honey your spice-loving pops is gonna want to put on everything.

    17. A professional-looking genealogy chart he can fill in instead of just telling you stories about about your Great-Great-Grandpa Steve for the hundredth time.

    18. A stylish leather bracelet for the dad who's not a regular dad, he's a cool dad.

    19. A punny tee, because your dad shouldn't have to go fishing for compliments on Father's Day.

    20. An amazingly affordable, portable, water-resistant speaker so he can jam out wherever he goes. Warning: it may cause him to break out his signature air guitar routine or force you to hear him singing in the shower. And if your dad is like mine, singing is not exactly one of his talents.

    21. A set of gold foil playing cards as a way to thank your dad for spending countless hours teaching you to play cards and to really show you karat about him.

    22. A luxe shave set because your pops deserves something a cut above his old drugstore razor.

    23. A goofy mug that combines all of his favorite things: grills, bad puns, and the chance to brag about his mad skills. Yes, this is peak dad.

    24. A clever ticket stub diary so he can save souvenirs of games, concerts, plays, and more. It even has lined spaces in the margins to write notes about favorite memories.

    25. A trendy colorblocked backpack for the dad who's always on the go and always looks cool doing it.

    26. A chic camera strap so that the next time he goes on vacation rocking the classic dad-with-camera-around-his-neck look, he'll at least be ~stylin'~.

    27. A sweet fishhook keyring so the dad who loves to fish can show off the names of the guppies he loves more than any trophy-worthy trout.

    28. A comfy 100% cotton shirt he'll wear all summer long.

    29. A classic baseball glove that you should definitely gift along with an offer to go play a game of catch right away.

    30. A sleek tray of three 3D wooden puzzles that'll give him a fun challenge and look ~smart~ (in every sense of the word) on his desk.

    31. A pair of vintagey globe cufflinks if your dad is a sharp-dressing globetrotter. Wait, is your dad James Bond?

    32. An insulated tumbler and set of stainless steel straws for a polished and practical gift he'll love.

    33. A funny (and accurate) personalized wooden postcard that's a card and a gift all in one. He'll love displaying it to remind the world what an awesome kid he has.

    34. An innovative carabiner multi-tool any outdoorsy, gadget-loving dad will be super excited to receive.

    35. A relaxing overnight foot care kit that will make every night feel like a trip to the spa and might just be the cure for his gross, flaky dad feet once and for all.
