10 Budget-Friendly Gifts for Dad He'll Love

By Razille Mae Biaca / July 21, 2022 /

Our dads are among the coolest people on earth, but they can be notoriously difficult to shop for, especially if they don’t give hints as to what gifts they truly like.

Well, there are plenty of gifts that will make your dad happy and you don't have to spend too much on them.

Check these out:

A Coffee Subscription

What to get for dads who love coffee? A coffee subscription, of course!

Make sure to choose his favorite coffee blend so he will be reminded of you every time he prepares his morning cup.

Alternatively, you can introduce a new flavor. Consider Artisan-style coffee like arabica beans, cold brew coffee liquor, nut-infused coffee grounds, etc.

Some shops even offer biscuits and coffee kits because why not? Coffee is always good with biscuits.

Outdoors Cup With A Functional Handle

Every outdoorsy dad will benefit from a travel mug. As travel restrictions are slowly being lifted around the world, it's time to think of go-to essentials.

Another great gift idea for dads is an outdoor mug with a functional handle. Whether they're going on a vacation or simply going to work, a sturdy outdoor mug is a must-have.

The right mug can also mean the difference between a hot drink that can stay hot for hours or settling for lukewarm coffee after just 30 minutes.

Luxurious Shaving Kit

Every hard-working dad deserves a luxurious gift. But you don't have to spend so much to give him a truly unique and special gift, such as a luxury shaving kit.

You don't have to bother buying separate products to put together a nice kit. Many brands are offering shaving kits that include everything, from the safety razor to the shaving brush, soap, creams, and other accessories.

His New Favorite Jerky

Has your dad been obsessed with jerky lately? Jerky makes a delicious snack that's best paired with good wine.

Many deli shops offer craft jerky gift packs. Aside from his favorite, consider adding a few more flavors like top chops chili pepper, long beach jerky, and bloody mary flavored jerky.

Stylish Wallet

Every man needs a wallet. But don't just get your dad a wallet. Get him a sturdy, stylish men’s wallet made from leather.

When it comes to wallets, leather-made is obviously the best choice. Take note, however, that not all leather is created equal. Look for the type and quality of leather that's crafted from top-grain leather.

In addition, look for features that are suitable to your dad's needs. If he carries lots of cards and IDs, go for quality men’s wallets with plenty of cardholders or compartments. 

Also, there are wallets designed for special purposes, such as travel wallets and RFID wallets. Consider them if your dad is a frequent traveler.

Fast-charging Power Bank

Devices like laptops, phones, and tablets are crucial these days. Most people depend on technology to work. 

This makes a fast-charging power bank an excellent gift for dads. If he uses multiple devices, choose a high-capacity power bank.

Power banks these days come in different designs and shapes. You may also find handmade pieces. Look for a unique-looking power bank that will make your dad smile. 

Custom Made Ring

A diamond ring doesn't have to be too expensive, especially if you choose a retailer  that creates custom diamond rings according to your requirements. There are some professional jewellers in Perth, for example, that create unique designs according to your taste and design.

By opting for a custom piece, you can choose the stone size, band material, and design to fit your budget.

Card Game

A perfect gift for stay-home dads is a card game that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Classic games like Slapjack, Crazy Eights, and Play or Play are great picks but if you want something different this time, there are so many other options online.

For dads who love strategy games, Jax Sequence is a good bet. For those with young kids, try  Mattel Games UNO and for families with teens, Atlas Games Gloom is a fun option

A Set From His Favorite Whiskey

What do you get as a whiskey lover? A set of his favorite whiskey of course.

Whether it's his birthday or any other special occasion, a personalized whisky bottle is a gift that every dad will surely appreciate.

Snag a handmade custom gift basket of his favorite whiskey. This includes snacks like jerky and chocolates, whiskey stones with a carrying pouch, a flask, playing cards, and more.

Small, Softcover Photo Book

A photo book isn't just a great gift, it's also a lovely way to celebrate the beautiful memories and experiences you shared together.

Many photo book providers allow you to customize everything, even the front cover. You can also choose from hundreds of templates and backgrounds. After designing your photo book, all you need to do is wait as they ship your one-of-a-kind gift.

Final Words

Expressing your love and gratitude to your dad or dad figure shouldn’t be expensive. 

There are budget-friendly gift items that are sure to put a smile on his face, and maybe even make him teary-eyed.

Don’t forget to seal the gift with a hug or a kiss and make your dad feel special on his day.
