Father's Day is right around the corner, which means you'll need to help the kids find the perfect gift. No pressure! Of course, nothing money can buy could adequately convey your kids' love and appreciation for their dad, but this year, skip the traditional tie or money clip and get him something he wants and will actually use. Here are seven ideas for Father's Day gifts the kids can get their dad—all for around 20 bucks:
1. Snack Basket
What Dad doesn't love a gourmet gift basket, especially when it's full of his favorite treats. Make your own at home by filling a cute basket with a variety of healthy snacks to keep him satisfied, whatever he's in the mood for. Choose flavorful, healthy treats, such as Dreamhouse White Cheddar Popcorn, Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds, B4Y Dried Mango Chunks, and Dreamhouse Yogurt Covered Raisins, and pull the gift together by securing your basket with a festive ribbon.
If Dad listens to music when he's traveling for business or going for a morning run, a new pair of sleek earbud headphones is just the ticket. These days, you can find a variety of headphones on the market (over-ear, on-ear, sound-blocking, Bluetooth), but a great pair of dependable earbuds never goes out of style.
Get your dad a new signature scent with Nautica's Nautica Blue. He'll love its fresh, pleasant aroma that'll remind him of his favorite family trips to the beach.
4. Comfort Insoles
Give Dad a gift he'll be thankful for with every step he takes, and pick up a pair of Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel Fit Inserts. Busy dads who are always on the go will love these massaging inserts that provide energizing support while helping to relieve leg and feet fatigue.
Is Dad's trimmer getting a little old? Get him the Conair Flex Beard and Mustache Trimmer. With 24 distinctive settings, Dad will be able to groom his beard, goatee, or mustache with ease and precision.
Get Dad a pound of his favorite coffee. He's sure to appreciate a caffeine kick as he gets ready for a long day at the office or a weekend spent roughhousing with the kiddos.
7. Gift Cards
Not sure what to get Dad? Gift cards to his favorite stores or restaurants make it easy!
This Father's Day, take the time to think about what Dad will actually want and use. There are dozens of options—no matter where his interests lie—that won't break the piggy bank.
