Father’s Day is sneaking up on us fast, and I don’t know about you, but all I’ve bought so far is a card (sorry, Chris). I still have a few more days so I know I’ll be okay, but I know I can’t be the only one not done yet! I’m so looking forward to spoiling Chris a little bit this weekend. That said, it drives me crazy when people spend crazy amounts of money on Mother’s and Father’s Day. I’m all about the experience and spending time together, so I prefer to keep it simple and affordable. I’ve put together a list below of my favorite gift ideas – all under $50 and most under $25. You’re welcome.
A manicure and/or pedicure. I know, you don’t usually think of this as a gift for a guy… but why not? If I love pedicures (and you can bet I do), then Chris definitely will. Why not give him some time to himself and let him get pampered a little? There’s actually a place near us in downtown Manassas that specializes in men’s manicures, pedicures, and shaves… and they just may be getting our business soon. And let’s face it – this is a benefit for us too. No one likes gross man feet. (Sorry, babe).
Grill stuff. If the dad in your life is anything like Chris, he loves getting stuff for the grill. A funny grill apron, a new set of tools, a new cover – dressing up the grill not only makes him happy, but it makes him want to use the grill… and that means less cooking for you. Win-win.
Funny tee shirts. EVERY time we go to Target, Chris heads over to the graphic tee section. He loves these things and has tons of them – a Captain America shirt, a Nintendo controller… they’re fun, cheap and they make him happy. Done.
Personalized Mug or Frame. This is hard to get from a company if it’s last minute, but there are TONS of tutorials for easy, kid-friendly DIYs on Pinterest. Craft away!
Tickets to a minor league baseball game. Chris really wants to take Abbie to a game, and this is the perfect way to do it – easy, inexpensive (especially if you can get them on a site like Groupon), and family-friendly.
