No need to be concerned; we've put together a list of our favourite ideas for dad that won't break the bank! With a handmade message and one of these thoughtful ideas, you can show how much you respect and adore your Dad. Or, if you’re shopping for gifts from your children for their father, we hope this list comes in handy as you treat him to something special this year!
Have a movie day
Part of being a Dad is being able to enjoy spending quality time together as a family, and if he works long hours, he's likely losing out on many precious moments with his kids. Why not pick a collection of popular movies, stock up on buttery popcorn, and sit down as a family for a relaxing and enjoyable movie day? The best and most memorable experiences in life are sometimes the most simple things you can experience.
Trade in his favourites
When trying to do something nice for the Fathers in your life it can be difficult if you don’t have much money to spend. However, trading in something as a part exchange for something new and upgraded is a great way of giving him something lovely without breaking the bank. For example, if he loves his watch and you’d like to buy him a new one, you can trade and Shop JLC watches on WatchBox without having to overspend. You can do this with other favourite items too such as jewelry or his old phone. Whatever you choose, it’s a lovely surprise for him without breaking the bank!
Let the kids decide
If you’re not sure what to get for the father of your children, why not let the kids decide? When you can sense that someone has thought about you when buying you a gift, it tends to be more sentimental. So, instead of picking something from the kids, give them each a budget and let them purchase something they think he'll like. It's possible that you'll end up with two utterly stupid gifts, but they'll mean more to him than your carefully chosen ones. Allow the sentimental value to shine through here, and you'll discover how really unique these gifts are.
Buy him something he needs, not wants
Finally, buying him something he needs rather than something he wants is an excellent option. Men are frequently the kind that prioritise ensuring that everyone else has what they require. It's just a part of being a father. They do, however, have a history of forgetting to look after themselves. Rather than trying to come up with a unique gift for him, why not get him something he needs rather than something he wants? Tools that may have just broken, or even a great new t-shirt to wear, can make all the difference, and you don’t have to worry about overspending.
