Perhaps you are all struggling with what to get the Dad. If your mind is blank- and really whose isn’t these days- allow us to provide a little assistance. We have tried to go beyond ties, golf clubs and bbq tools to find some unique ideas that keep budgets in mind.
If the Dad in your life suffers from tired achy muscles, a deep tissue -percussive massager will provide much needed relief. The most famous percussive massager is the Theragun-pro priced at around $600. However, we found a highly rated percussive massager -the Sportneer on Amazon.com for the far more down-to-earth price of $135.99.
If grill master describes the Dad in your life, we have an idea for him too. Perhaps you have heard about kamado grills. They create an authentic smoky flavor and allow you to cook steaks like a pro or even grill a pizza that tastes like it came from a real wood-fired pizza oven. The most famous is the Big Green Egg and while loyal fans rave that they are worthy of all the fuss, buying one will set you back about $800. Here’s a more down to earth option instead- the Akorn Kamado Charcoal Grill. It isn’t inexpensive at $315.50 on Amazon, but when many kamado grills are priced at over thousand dollars, this model delivers at a third of the price.
If the Dad in your life is a music fan, how about a Bluetooth outdoor lantern? Forget running old fashioned speaker wires, this rechargeable outdoor lantern can play music while it also lights the night. Here we go again, the UMA Sound lantern by Pablo designs has cool styling and sounds great, but it’s priced at around $400 on Design Within Reach. For most of us, that’s a budget buster.
same as above design within reach good on sale
We found the similar Mooni Opal Light speaker lantern by Allsop on Overstock.com for about $100.
If camping or RVing sounds more like the Dad you know and love, we found this great camping Bluetooth lantern at QVC.com for less than $40. At that price, you might prefer buying this affordable version to use at home.
If the Father in your family likes golf, we won’t leave him out. We are guessing he is all set with clubs, but how about his own area in the garage to keep things neat and easy to find? This useful metal organizer is $79.99 at the pgatoursuperstore.com.
Keeping budgets in mind, we found something for the golfing Granddad. Get him a custom golf towel, that features brag-worthy grandkid’s photos. It is on-sale for only $19.99 at Fathead.com
Here is a really cool gift for Dads who love to tend bar with style that is truly gentle on the budget. For only $13.99 on Amazon, you get two ice cube trays to make gigantic whiskey style ice. The enormous square and round ice cubes would be fun to use in just about anything from iced tea to single malt scotch.
Here is another James Bond worthy bar gift that also provides sleek style at a reasonable cost. The Krosno handmade Bond Martini pitcher and stirrer is $35.99 at Target.com.
Is Dad’s gym closed? This gift brings the gym to any room in your home while taking almost no space. We are showing you two versions at different prices. The first, the TRX suspension training system started the craze. It is sold on Amazon for $169.95.
Once again, we are providing a budget friendly option. This bodyweight resistance trainer by Fitindex is priced under $100 on Amazon.com and is almost as highly rated as the TRX. Be sure to look for coupons that make this an even more reasonably priced option.
For book-loving Dads, this gripping and magnificently written new book ‘Hollywood Park” is the true story of Mikel Jollett who began life in one of America’s most infamous cults. It is priced at less than $27.99 at barnesandnoble.com. Your kids know Jollett as the frontman of indie band The Airborne Toxic Event. It is hard to fathom this much talent in one human being- it is a stunning first book, from a hugely talented musician. Jollett’s band has released an album also called Hollywood Park. We have provided a spotify link below.
