11 Unique Father’s Day Gifts for $25 or Less
Usually, when you shop for Father’s Day gifts on a budget, you’re left considering a pair of socks, a boring tie, or a world’s-greatest-dad mug. But not this year! This year, we’ve rounded up 11 budget-friendly gifts that are NONE of those things. These options are all $25 or less, and way more unique than the typical present you may have fallen back in the years past.
1. Drillbrush All-Purpose Power Scrubber Cleaning Kit, $15
If your dad is often on oven- or grill-cleaning duty, he’ll get a kick (and tons of use!) out of this brush set. The pieces attach right to his power drill and do most of the work for him.
2. I’m a Weirdough T-Shirt, $22 at Human
We know so many dads who are into making their own bread. And dad jokes. So this cheeky T-shirt combines two great loves.
3. Cheesy Jokes, $10 at Paper Source
Speaking of dad jokes! These are printed on cards designed to look like those pre-wrapped pieces of orange-ish cheese slices.
4. Anthony Bourdain Remembered, $21
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since Anthony Bourdain passed. This sweet and tasteful book features memories and anecdotes from fans, chefs, journalists, filmmakers, and more. It’s a touching reminder of his widespread impact, and an all-around well-done homage.
5. Hokey Pokey Pieces, $14 for 3.7 ounces at Mouth
It’s a mistake to think that your mom is the only one who’d enjoy a box of chocolates. These feature crunchy, golden honeycomb candy and are great on their own or chopped up and sprinkled on top of ice cream.
6. Sagaform Small Herb Pot, $25 at Nordstrom
With his kids all grown up and out of the house, your dad might enjoy nurturing his very own herbs, which he can then use in his cooking. This pot is self-watering, so it won’t take up too much of his time.
7. Star Wars Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Spatula, $18 at Sur la Table
There is basically no dad on the planet who won’t have fun playing with this lightsaber, er, we mean spatula.
8. Aloe Vera in Ezra Planter, $23 at The Sill
For the dad who likes to play with fire, this Aloe plant can help soothe his burns, should he get a boo-boo.
9. Bodum 8-Cup Pour Over Coffee Maker, $20 at Target
This Bodum pour-over gadget is a lot like the iconic Chemex, only it comes with a fine-mesh stainless steel filter, which eliminates the need for paper ones.
10. Wüsthof Gourmet Kitchen 2-Piece Utility Set, $25 at Crate & Barrel
Every kitchen needs a paring knife and a good set (or sets!) of shears. And chances are, your dad’s are pretty old/worn out.
11. Limited Edition Tacos Swiss Army Knife by Victorinox, $20
For the seventh year in a row, Victorinox has launched a limited edition line. This time, the theme is Food of the World, and thousands of fans submitted designs. The 10 winning designs each feature a different food — including cheeseburgers, lemons, popcorn, and more. We’re partial to the taco.
