Look for something meaningful to give dad without breaking the bank? While it’s the meaning that counts, a physical gift is always good.
Try some of these budget-friendly gifts for your dad.
Book of Memories
Take a stroll through memory lane and go through your albums. Pick your favorite pictures of you and your dad and put them into a new gift album for your dad. He’ll also appreciate the sweet stroll down memory lane.
Speaking of sweets, a dish of baked treats is also always a good gift for dad. You can even make a note with frosting on the edible goodies.
Find out some of the chores your dad has to do and make coupons for work you’ll do for him. For instance, if he has to take out the trash or mow the lawn. Offer to do the work using those coupons which he can “cash in” at anytime. It’s a small gesture plus he’ll notice you notice all the work he does. If he does not have chores, make him coupons for free meals like one free dinner or one full day of home cooked meals.
If you really wan to make it simple and don’t have much time, grab a plain frame from Target or Walmart then decorate it. Don’t forget to pop a picture of you guys in the frame! If you want, write a note at the back of the picture. It’s quick, sweet and meaningful.
Daddy-Daughter or Son Time
Find out something your dad loves to do or have really wanted to do then make time for it. Tell him you guys are meeting up for lunch and then surprise him with a daddy daughter (or son) day. Your father will appreciate the quality time and the thought behind it.
While these may not be high-end gifts, they’re are priceless to the person raised you and they are great ways to enjoy those who have made a difference in your life.
