    Hey Catherine. I'm not sure what kind of budget are you on, but if you want, you can check out http://liamhubpages.hubpages.com/hub/Be … ther-Gifts  where you can find even items for less than $30 and at least leather touchscreen gloves which you, or in this case your dad, can use on his iphone and ipad are a fresh and great idea, at least in my opinion.

    I always believe that it shouldn't matter how much or little a gift costs, that the sentiment and intention attached to it is much more important. Hand made gifts are ideal for people,on a budget and it really doesn't matter how old the giver is; a young child can make something crafty to give dad and an adult can cook a beautiful meal, or place a picture of themselves in an inexpensive frame. Any dad worth his salt will love the gifts that took some time and thought and not necessarily lots of dollars.

    Love of the kids for their father would be the best gift for a father. Try to visit your father on that day and  spend a few hours with him. No other expensive gift on this earth would provide him with more pleasure.

    Good morning Catherine! The best gifts are homemade...how about getting a old mirror from the thrift store and pasting old pics of yourself to the glass then writing a hello Dad I love you on it? (my daughter did that for me for mothers day last yr and I treasure it) but the best one is she wrote Hi Dad love your punkin on the mirror in his bathroom sometime last year...he still wont clean that mirror smile so really, just little things that mean the most come from your hands,from your heart...

    I think one of the best gifts someone can give a father is "learning about him."  Let me explain.  I recall one father's day I had my children learn about my husband, their father's past life.  We went through a series of questions about:  1)  The high school he went to, 2)  His first job, 3)  His first car..., and he loved the interaction.  It brought wonderful memories to him. 
    Thanks for the question.

    I like gifts from the heart that involve the kids: homemade BBQ sauce or a special breakfast, a coupon book for carwashes, yard clean-up, etc, or crafty frames, coffee mugs, and photo albums featuring dad and his kids. Other ideas when the kids have grown are custom DVDS of memories or a fave music compilation CD, a foot wash and pedicure, a back massage, or a favorite home-cooked meal. To make it more fun, add the mystery of a treasure hunt or a "destination unknown" outing.
