Mommyish Gift Guide: 10 Budget-Friendly Father’s Day Gifts Under $20

By  | 

Father’s Day is right around the corner. EVERYBODY PANIC. If you don’t know what to get for your husband and don’t have extra cash to blow, I’ve got you covered.

Here are 10 high-quality Father’s Day gift ideas that won’t break the bank:

1. Best Dad Ever T-shirt: Less Than $10

“Best Dad Ever” gear is lame, but it’s also a rite of passage. Who are you to deprive your man of his fatherhood confirmation?

2. Michael Symon’s Carnivore Cookbook: $20

Stereotypical, but I guarantee you that my husband would use this like his Bible.

3. Geek Dad Project Book: $10

This is another niche book that my husband would LOVE. Did I mention that he’s the coolest geek I know?

4. Whiskey Stones Set: $19

My husband would kiss me on the mouth if I bought him these hipster-esque whiskey stones to chill fine beverages without diluting them.

5. Tasting Tool Kit: $18

Father’s Day stereotypes abound, but if the shoe fits… My husband would also love this kit because he does a little home brewing on the side. Typical dad.

6. Leather Magnetic Money Clip: $11

Don’t let the cheap price tag fool you. This fancy-schmacy leather money clip will make your husband feel like a mob boss whenever he pays for diapers.

7. Dockers Trifold Wallet: $19

Look, I’m trying my hardest to beat the dad stereotypes here, but dads like wallets. Maybe it’s time to replace his hip-dysplasia-causing-George-Costanza wallet after all these years.

8. Me Undies: $20

What dad wouldn’t like the “world’s most comfortable underwear?” If your husband has a soul and some junk, he will love this thoughtful man-gift—I promise.

9. Cheap Concert Tickets: Hopefully $10

My husband would kill to see a live concert post-kids. Check out some small venues in your area, and I betcha can find a pair of tickets for $20.

10. Kid-Run Car Wash: FREE

Convincing your kids to do your husband’s chores in the name of Father’s Day? PRICELESS.
