Father's Day is nearing, which means it's time to put your brain to work and start your search for the perfect gift that will show your dad just how much you love and appreciate him. Ideally, you want to get him something that is fitting for his personality and interests, but to many, doing so will require them to spend an ungodly amount of money that they may not have. It is understandable that people want to get their father something nice, however, that doesn't mean they should be left standing in the poor house when all has been said and done.

Check out these 15 Father's Day gifts under $25, $50, and $100. As always, check out DealsPlus to find great deals for Father's Day gifts and every day!


1. Personalized Beer Mug

Best Dad Award Custom Beer Mug, $21.95

There are many dads who believe that the ending to a perfect day involves relaxing on the couch while enjoying their favorite tv show and a nice, cold beer. This does sound like a great way to wrap up a long day of work or tough week, but it would be even better if the beers your dad enjoyed were from his own personalized mug instead of a can. This gift can be purchased from various online and in-store retailers and is something your dad, the beer-lover, will appreciate.

2. Cookbook

Does your dad love to cook? A cookbook could be the perfect gift for him, especially if he enjoys trying out new recipes. If possible, choose one that is focused on cooking certain items, like vegan dishes or steak and burgers.

3. Dollar Shave Club Membership

Starting at $1/month plus $2 shipping and handling

Has dad's beard gotten a little mountain-man like? A Dollar Shave Club membership may be a good idea then. This membership only costs $1/month, plus a $2 shipping and handling fee, so you can do it for as long as you'd like. For that, you get a razor and a set of new blades every month. With this gift, dad won't have a reason to not shave.

4. Swiss Army Knife

Victorinox Swiss Army Classic SD Pocket Knife, $14.65

Swiss army knives may seem more appropriate for a young boy in a boy scout troop, but with them being so convenient, there is no denying that your father will find it useful during those times he feels like being handy. Whether he's opening a bottle of wine or tending to a hangnail, this particular gift is one he will likely enjoy.

5. Magazine membership

From left to right:

If your dad is a reader, then he may like a subscription to his favorite magazine. Depending on the magazine, you may be able to find a deal that will allow your dad to receive monthly issues for however long you'd like. You can even subscribe to two or three if he enjoys multiple magazines.


6. Beer making kit

Barrel of Beer Starter Kit, $42.95

If your dad loves do-it-yourself projects and beer, then why not give him the opportunity to make his own beer? Beer-making kits are a fun way to challenge your dad, but also introduce him to a new hobby he may actually stick with for years to come.

7. Desk sign

Best Ever Desk Signs, $28.00

Your dad is the one in charge, the head of the household, or at least he thinks so. It is probably something he wants people to know. What better way to make it apparent to visitors of the home that your dad is the boss than with a desk sign? This gift is cute, funny and even something that dad can take to the office with him.

8. Personalized BBQ branding iron

Monogrammed Forged Steak Brand, $39.96 (originally $49.95)

Head over to DealsPlus to see what deals are going on at Williams-Sonoma.

9. Decanter

Square Hand-Blown Glass Decanter with Stopper, $39.50

Wine or hard liquor, whatever your father's drink of choice may be, using a decanter to store it in until it's time to pour up a glass or five can add class and fun to his drinking experience. The great thing about this gift is that decanters come in a variety of cool shapes and themes, like spheres and squares. The low price even makes it possible for you to purchase a set of glasses to match.

10. USB cufflinks

Black 8GB USB Flash Drive Cufflinks, $39.99

For a dad who is into technology, but also likes to dress up, USB cufflinks are a cute, fun idea. This is convenient should he have to give a presentation or need to have access to certain information while at a work function or out to dinner with the boss or clients.


11. Tools

Craftsman Evolv 52 pc. Homeowner Tool Set, $47.49 (origianlly $49.99)

For a handy dad, tools are always the way to go. He may need a new drill or a set of screwdrivers, so check out his tool box and see what could be updated or what is missing and surprise him with the perfect gift.

12. Watch

Whether your dad is one of those guys who has a billion watches or the guy who always ask for the time, a watch is a great gift. Even if he has what seems like every watch on the market, there are so many different styles, sizes and colors available that you will be sure to find one that he doesn't already have in his collection.

13. Massage gift card

People think that a nice, relaxing massage is something only a mom would enjoy, but dads deserve to take a load off and be pampered, too. Check out local spas and compare prices to see which has the most affordable massage deals and let your dad be treated like a king.

14. Wallet

Don't forget to see if DealsPlus has any great Nordstrom deals and coupons before you make your purchase!

Wallets are one of those things that wear easily over the years of everyday use. Check out the condition of your father's wallet and see if it is holding up. If it doesn't look like it can stand anymore of the constant opening and closing or the color is fading from the material, it may be time for him to trade it in for something that is durable and more pleasing to the eye.

15. Cigars

Your dad doesn't have to be a smoker to enjoy a quality cigar. Every once in awhile, he may find it acceptable to indulge, so why not offer him a variety of cigars that he hasn't tried yet? You can find cigars locally or shop online to find some that are affordable and flavorful.

Bonus Mention:

"I Make Adorable Babies" Men's T-Shirt and Baby Bodysuit Set
