Updated on June 9, 2014

Cheap Father's Day Gifts

Need some good inexpensive Father's Day gift ideas? I have some great presents for dads that don't cost a fortune including baskets, key chains, a personalized T-shirt, poems and more.

I also have some homemade craft ideas that could make a for a special tribute to the #1 man in their lives. You can even enjoy some music while you visit.

Not everyone can afford to spend a lot of money, even if they want to. Just let it come from the heart while letting him know how much he is loved.

Gift for First Time Dad

First Time Dad

A dad's first Father's Day is a very special time. If you're buying for a first time dad, you might consider a gift that reflects this.

One idea is to buy him a scrapbook and get it started for him. Over the years he can continue to add to it. Make sure a picture of him with his kids be taken every year on Father's Day and placed in the book.

Consider writing him a personalized poem reflecting on this special day. Then, you can find a nice frame to put it in.

I always love photo gifts. You can buy him a special Father's Day frame and place a picture in it for a gift. I have a suggestion below for you.

Cheap Father's Day Gift Basket

An inexpensive basket can be made using items from a dollar type store. You can pick up a basket, then get items to fill it in with.

Most dads love treats, so an idea is to make him a treat basket. You could include some candy, popcorn and chips.

Does he like to fix things around the house or work on cars? If so, put together a basket with tools, gloves, measuring tape, flashlight, etc,

If he enjoys gardening, a basket could include gardening gloves, garden decorations and garden stakes.

You don't even have to have a theme. Just fill it with items you know he'll like.
