Not sure what to do for the man who’s done so much for you? If you’re constrained by a tight budget and an unfortunate exhaustion of ideas, we’ve got you covered with five Father’s Day favorites that harken back to the classics but with some cute twists:
1. Shave It Off
Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care for Men, Shave Cream ($8, Macy’s) is the natural solution that’s sure to delight dad. It’s made of 100% natural ingredients and gentle on sensitive skin. Pair it with Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care for Men, Aftershave ($8, Macy’s) and it’ll only set you back $16 for the power duo! (however, if you spend $25 or more, you get a free men’s deodorant– so who’s down for a joint order?)
2. You’re Bacon Me Crazy
You might be asking yourself, “What even is this?” (ONLY THE GREATEST BOUQUET EVER) or “Who would want this?” (uh, I would *hint hint*). Plus all this will cost you is a pack of bacon that you might already have in your fridge and some fake flowers that you can find on sale or at the dollar store. Get the DIY here to make a bouquet of roses that even Ron Swanson would want.
3. Be a Tool
“But Angelina, we always buy my dad tools and they just sit in the garage and he never uses them!” ….SAME (I’m lookin’ at you, Bro King). But the joke is on you: this is actually the Mr. Bar-B-Q 94001X 18-Piece Stainless-Steel Barbecue Set ($21.99, Casa.com). This 18-piece set (do the math: only a little more than $1 per tool… sweet!) includes everything he could ever need, from a basting brush to knives to corn holders– all in this handy-dandy case. And it’s on Amazon Prime, so shipping is fast and free!
4. It’s Poppin’
Pops for your Pop! This is super cute and the ultimate in custom punny gifts. Find his favorite flavors of Pop Rocks, Pop Tarts, Pop Chips, soda pop, etc; throw them in a cute (and of course by “cute” I mean “rustic and manly”) basket and make sure he gets the pun.
5. Spice It Up
If your dad is a heat-seeker, Gusto Dried Hot Pepper Gift Set ($18.50, Etsy) is perfect! With eight different dried hot pepper varieties, dad can season and spice to his heart’s content. If he’s not a mouth-on-fire-and-forehead-sweat kind of guy, this awesome Etsy shop also has a few grill rub varieties that you should definitely check out!
Now armed with a new arsenal of ideas, you can face this Father’s Day head-on while still saving your wallet from a major hit! And don’t worry– we’ll let you take all the credit.
