The next father's day will take place on Sunday June 17th, 2012. So what gifts are popular for father's day? Let's take a look at some of the hottest Father's Day gifts and see if we can avoid giving out another tie or cologne.

And don't worry if you're running out of time to make a selection. Below you'll find some cool ideas for father's day that you can order online easily and securely. Not only will online shopping save you time, but money, as well.

But, don't worry if you're not a fan of shopping online, you'll still be able to find many of these products locally to purchase from your favorite retailers.

Looking For Cheap Father's Day Gifts?

If you are strapped for cash, but still want to make it a year to remember for your dad and avoid the obvious usual choices, you'll like these ideas, which are not only great, but also cheap.

And if that doesn't get you excited you could always go for that free kiss thing pictured over on the right... Still here, huh? Thought so.

Let's get started... This page is updated often! There's still a lot of time until the next Father's Day, we're now up to 6 great Father's Day gift ideas that will not break the bank:

The Groom Mate

The Groom Mate Platinum XL Plus is the ultimate nose hair trimmer. Not only will your father appreciate this stylish addition to his daily hygiene routine, but this device is extremely high quality and battery free, which means it will be saving him money once his most recent electric trimmer breaks down again (which they often do).

This gift might not be for everyone, though. If your dad is the type who thinks that looking clean and well groomed is too "metrosexual", you might need to take a pass, but this is a great fit for anyone's dad who does use a trimmer.

If you're not sure if yours does, just take a look at his nose, and if you want to be really courageous, get him this trimmer if he looks like he needs it too!

Edwin Jagger Safety Razor

The Edwin Jagger De891bl Double Edge Safety Razor provides what some might say is the ultimate low-cost shaving experience. Sure there are other safety razors out there, but for the money, and even irregardless of the money, the Edwin Jagger De891bl really shines.

If you're not familiar with safety razors, don't feel bad. Cheap disposable razors and overpriced multi-blade plastic jobs have saturated the market to such a degree that you're unlikely to find these high quality razors in your daily shopping. The safety razor is, however, making a very strong comeback, as men are rediscovering the value of a high quality and low cost shave.

Not only do safety razors provide a much more refined shaving experience, they are arguably the most economic and convenient way to shave, as the blades themselves are replaceable and often remain sharp enough to last for weeks per single blade. Replacing the blades is easy, and shaving with a safety razor becomes second nature once you get the hang of it.

If your dad is still using overpriced plastic disposables or multi-blade razors, get him the gift that keeps on giving, and liberate him from shaving Purgatory. While you're at it, order one for yourself, too. With the money you'll save on shaving, you'll afford an even better gift for your dad in 2012!

      Thanks, Jennuhlee. I'm planning on adding some other things to it, but I've been sort of slacking on this hub and focusing on other stuff. This was sort of a reminder for me that it even exists. ;)

      I think it'd be great if you make another hub. I've been looking forward to reading them. I noticed you got your accolade for 10 hubs with your last. Congrats on that!
