What do you give to Dad??

Most men that I know go out and buy what they want or need on their own. But, our teens need to honor dad’s day, whether it’s a birthday or holiday, and purchasing a gift for dad is always a good thing! Dad birthday gifts and Fathers day gift ideas can be difficult to come up with, so read on for some cool gifts for dad, including gifts for the dad who has everything!

Almost all of these gifts for dad are less than $25 dollars. I did include a couple of more expensive items so that siblings and/or mom could chip in -still less than $50!

Giving gifts is a great way to show thoughtfulness

One thing that we have really encourage our kids to do over the years, is to think of others. Gift giving is such a fun way to show someone love. Your teen doesn’t need to spend lots of money to give their dad a thoughtful gift. They don’t even have to spend anything!

Some of the best gifts for dad can be funny homemade cards or coupons for jobs or things that they can do with dad over the next few months.

Encourage your teens to think ahead… to know when their dad’s birthday is, to know when Father’s Day is, to acknowledge their love for their dads even if things are rough in their relationship right now. This is one thing that can be hard for our teens to do because dads can be gruff, and come across as grumpy at the end of a long day.

As moms, we need to find those times when they are getting along, and really help both sides to see that they really DO love each other, it just can be rocky sometimes. Help those dad and teens find ways to connect and bond!

Here is one more place to look for some reasonable priced gifts for dad!
