Phew. In my house, Father’s Day, birthday, and anniversary are all within five weeks so I’ve been researching gifts for my husband Alec with a laser-like focus. Here’s a quick list of fun and functional gifts for dads under $25.
This beloved breakfast sandwich maker is a top pick for hearty and healthy breakfasts in five minutes. If you’re allergic to kitchen appliances that only do one thing, keep browsing.
Our husbands wouldn’t exactly wear this shirt around town, but for less than $10, the sentiment is perfect. And who doesn’t need another great loungewear shirt?
We think this solution to picking up nails, screws, and drill bits is just brilliant. A handy magnetic wristband keeps them all right where you need them. And this model doesn’t pinch arm hair.
Our friend, Mike Adamick, published a series of Dad’s Awesome books and you’re going to want them. This first one includes how to make fantastic DIY super hero capes (easy) all the way up to crazy backyard play structures. The next one goes into science experiments. Pace yourself. (Read our review)
Who doesn’t love mini flashlights? This four-pack is super bright and easily fits in a diaper bag or front pocket. They are probably bigger on your screen than in real life (unless you’re on a small phone).
I love the card game FLUXX with its ever-changing rules; this diaper-bag size card game is fun for two or more when your baby takes an unexpected nap.
Whitney used to give her candy-loving husband 4.5 pounds of Mike & Ike candy. Wow. What a sweetie!
Choose your favorite BBQ book to flame the fires of his desire to cook outdoors. My dad was an expert at steak on the grill. We like this one for basic grilling tips but there are others that focus on sauces or technique that your guy might prefer.
I’d love any more ideas for dads in the “under $25” category since Christmas is always around the corner!
