Cheap Father's Day Gift Ideas for Under $10

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

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.

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.
