If anyone has advice on how to save a buck doing most things, it’s a dad. Whether it’s how to save on your electric bill, find the best gas prices, or DIY your own home and auto repairs, dads are hardwired to pinch pennies--and freely share their helpful tips with those he loves the most. So in the spirit of saving money, we’re sharing our favorite gifts for dad that won’t break the bank. This carefully curated list of great gifts for dad features the best Father’s Day gifts for under $50.
Electric Wine Opener
Maybe dad loves to unwind with a glass of wine at the end of the day, maybe dad is a gadget guy, maybe dad is both. Whatever the case, this electric wine opener will give him plenty to smile about. Dad can pop open a bottle of wine with ease and play with a new piece of tech at the same time. Plus, it’s a Father’s Day gift under $25, so you can also throw in his favorite bottle.
Merino Wool Socks
Socks were never that exciting to get as a kid, but dads? They love them! And these merino wool socks are sure to impress (dare we say, knock his socks off?). Made of natural fibers, they will keep his feet warm in the winter, yet cool in the summer. And the inherent moisture-wicking that merino wool is known for will keep him dry. The best part about this budget-friendly Father’s Day gift? When you buy these socks from Bombas, you buy 8, and they donate 8 to those in need. Win-win.
If dad doesn’t have a PopSocket yet, it’s because he hasn’t tried one yet. Once he sticks this onto his phone, he’ll be amazed at how he can text with one hand and do dad things with the other. Plus, he can prop up his phone so that you can watch funny videos together. Even if he isn’t a selfie kind of guy, you’ll want to show him how easy taking pics is with this handy and affordable Father’s Day gift.
Shiatsu Neck and Shoulder Massager
Dads carry a lot of stress in their necks and shoulders. Sitting behind a computer or a steering wheel, or lugging around kids all day can do that to a guy. He’ll love how quickly his knots and tension will melt away after using this deep-kneading massager. Its 3D rotating rollers will dig into muscles he never knew he had in his neck, back, shoulder, legs, calf, and foot. And the soothing heat therapy just might put him to sleep. This is a present for Father’s Day he’ll never forget.
