Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Whether you’re looking for a gift for your own dad or for the father of your children, below are some great gift ideas to thank the father in your life for being so stellar, without breaking the bank.

1. Virtual Reality Google Cardboard (price $30).  Yes, I know these guys don’t look like much.  I mean, they’re cardboard.  BUT my hubby wanted this so badly and was over the moon when it came in the mail and I’ll have to tell you, it’s actually a really neat concept.  You can experience virtual reality without paying an arm and a leg for it.  You can “travel” to places all over the world (for more info, read my post: Capture Memories Like NEVER Before) and it’s great for all ages.  Bonus?  It kept our 4 year-old occupied for quite some time to experience roaming with the dinosaurs!

2. Father’s Day Card Printables (price $Free). mrprintables.com has an awesome and unique selection of cards and gift tags that you won’t find at your local store.

3. Old School Toys (price $16/$39). For the father who is a kid at heart, a Rubber Band Gun or desktop slingshot is sure to add a little fun to his workday.

4. Metal wallet insert card (price $18).  Create a personalized message to be etched on a Stainless Steel Card (black or silver) with a replica of your (or your kids’) handwriting or drawing that he can keep with him in his wallet.  If you think these are awesome, check out the rest of the etsy store for even more ways to personalize keepsakes.

5. Word Lock (price $8).  Instead of trying to remember a number combination when locking up his bike, locker or anything else, he can use this word lock and remember a simple 4-letter word of his choosing (found here: indoor lock or bike lock cable).

Anything I’ve missed?  I’m always on the hunt for presents for my dad and hubs and can use any help I can get.  I’d love to hear a male’s perspective too!
