Father’s Day is the one special day of the year to celebrate dads. As long as you know a little something about your dad or father figure, you can make this weekend special. We have come up with plenty of activities and Father’s Day gifts for every budget.
Setting a Budget for Father’s Day Gifts
First things first: set a budget before purchasing any Father’s Day gifts. This is critical to keep from picking up any unwanted consumer debt. I’m sure if you asked your dad, he’d say to save your money! So that means keeping to a budget is the best way to honor your dad.
If your current budget doesn’t have a line for gifts, you will have to look elsewhere. Take a look at your entertainment, clothing or dining out budgets to find out how much you can spend on a gift. If you do have a gift budget already in place, take stock of any other upcoming gifts for the month. Estimate how much each will cost to get your answer.
15 Father’s Day Gifts
With your budget in hand, it’s now time to start shopping! The list below contains gifts ranging from $0 to a few hundred dollars. I tend to want to overspend on gifts; the perfect thing is somehow always just out of reach. However, this only hurts my financial goals. Try to stay focused on the sentiment and not get pushed into spending more than you should and then needing to get rid of debt.
