25 Thoughtful Father's Day Gifts Under $25
Show Dad that you care a lot (without spending too much) with any of these heartfelt Father's Day gift ideas.
Dads are notoriously difficult to shop for. What could they possibly need beyond our unconditional love and maybe new socks? (Just kidding!) But over the years, we've learned that the best Father's Day gifts are usually the ones that come straight from the heart or solve an everyday problem.
Even better? Thoughtful gifts that you didn't spend a lot of money on, because Dad taught you to be frugal. Here are 25 gift ideas under $25 that will show him how much you care and that you really were paying attention all these years.
BruMate's patented can coolers will ensure Dad never drinks warm beer again. Their Hopsulator Trio set is truly the versatile can cooler in the world. It fits 16-ounce craft cans, comes with an adapter for 12-ounce cans, and with one quick switch, turns into a 16-ounce pint glass.
If he's particularly proud of his alma mater, then Dad might need one of these collegiate pint glasses. There are 22 college campuses represented in the collection, and each design was made in collaboration with alumni, locals, faculty and fans. The result is a thoughtful gift packed with school spirit.
Spare Dad the headache of detangling charging cables and cords with this sophisticated tech organizer. The roll is crafted from vegan leather and can fit eight cords, two plugs and a couple of headphones. It's also sleek enough to fit in his work bag or carry-on.
Pay tribute to one of his favorite places in the world with a custom coordinates hat. You could feature the location of his favorite hiking trail, fishing hole, lake, brewery, baseball stadium or even his hometown. You can put the text on the front or the back and shop the hat in 13 different colors.
If your father's the biking type, then upgrade his ride with this practical yet thoughtful gift. The insulated All-Sack bag straps onto the inside of his handlebars and keeps his water bottle, snacks or small essentials (like his phone, keys and wallet) in easy reach while riding.
It's hard to beat the gift of sleep. Help Dad get plenty of rest and wake up a little more easily with this top-rated sunrise alarm clock. Instead of shrill sounds or bells, the clock uses a warm light to simulate the sun and gently wake him up in the morning.
Combine his love of sports and grilling into a one-of-a-kind gift with this custom spatula. The base features a laser-etched logo in the pro team of his choice, while the beautiful maple handle boasts an integrated bottle opener. Something tells us that he'll want to use it every chance he gets.
If you're going to give Dad a mug, it better be a YETI. This Rambler Lowball is the perfect size for walking around the neighborhood, running errands and camping, and it uses double-walled insulation to keep his coffee hot or his water cold for hours. It's also available in a variety of colors.
For the dad who has a sense of humor and at least one daughter, we suggest this adorable money clip. It's crafted from stainless steel, so it'll last for years to come, and it can be customized with four lines of text. (It would also make a sweet Father of the Bride gift.)
Because why should he have to get up in the middle of a show or game? Help Dad sit back and actually relax with this convenient side pocket for the sofa or chair. A small opening on the bottom even allows him to run charging cables through, just in case he needs to power his phone or tablet.
Now here's a gift that your family's head chef will greatly appreciate. Take the work (and tired arms) out of recipes that call for continuous stirring with this automatic utensil. The gadget has three speeds, a built-in timer and can be tossed right in the dishwasher.
If he always strives to put his best foot forward, then he might love this guided journal. Each page is divided into two sections — morning and night — and gives Dad space to list three things he's grateful for. Over time, the book will help him cultivate a gratitude mindset and a more positive outlook.
Give your golf-loving dad or grandpa the greatest gift of all: A handy ball-retrieving stick so he doesn't have to bend down on the green. The lightweight tube is simple and easy to use, and it can hold up to 23 balls. It's also sleek enough to fit right into his bag.
If he's an avid reader, then he'll love this teasing (yet totally useful) bookmark. A magnetic closure keeps the bookmark in place, while the soft faux-leather shell helps protect the pages. Best of all? He can use it for any legal pad or notebook as well.
