I always get so frustrated searching for Father’s Day gifts for my hubby. Every time I see a “Father’s Day gift idea” list, it is full of tech stuff that my husband is just not into. My hubby is a guy into anything with an engine, tools, and magazines. I set out on a mission to compile a list of items that guys like my hubby would want. Here is the list of 10 budget friendly father’s day gift ideas
I can’t tell you how many magazines he has since he has LITERALLY everyone he has ever had. NO LIE. Ask anyone that knows him. He also doesn’t work in an office, so I can’t get anything for that. So, what in the world do you get a guy like that for Father’s Day?
Isn’t this the cutest engraved hammer? This one would be the perfect gift from a teenager or child. I think it would be great to display in a shop or man cave! The engraved hammer can also be passed down as a family heirloom.
Best Dad Ever Knife
My husband is constantly losing knives; maybe he wouldn’t lose this one. It is engraved with the words “Best Dad Ever.” I don’t know what man doesn’t want a pocket knife. And not only will come in handy for jobs around the house but also on a family camping trip.
Daddy’s Survival Kit Beer Glass
What dad doesn’t need a custom-engraved beer glass? This glass is etched with the saying “Daddy’s Survival Kit” on one side. A funny yet unique glass for even a Dad-to-Be on Father’s Day.
Wallet Ninja 18-1 Multi-purpose Pocket Tool
I don’t know what kind of guy wouldn’t want this thing. It opens beers and cans and is a tool AND fits in their wallet! How convenient is that! The Wallet Ninja is a multi-functional tool that functions as a Screwdriver, Bottle Opener, Box Opener, Can Opener, Cellphone Stand, Eyeglass Screwdriver, Beer Opener, Fruit Peeler, Hex Wrench & Nail Puller.
My husband has received this as a gift twice now and LOVES it!
Craftsman 100 Piece Drilling and Driving Set
My husband is constantly out in the shop and fixing things around the house. The Craftsman 100 Piece Drilling and Driving Set would be perfect for him. Why buy every single bit you may need for your projects when you can get them in a 100-piece accessory kit?
Bits and screwdrivers sometimes break or even get misplaced when using them, so a man can’t have too many. Any tool-loving man would love this set.
Multipurpose Laser Level
My husband is always needing a level, and this Multipurpose Laser Level would be perfect for him. It can be used for hanging pictures, installing shelving, laying flooring, hanging wallpaper, and other home projects.
My husband has so many sockets; it is seriously ridiculous. He has a couple of these Socket Organizers and loves them. He probably needs a couple more because he has so many tools. This organizer makes the sockets easy to access and is perfect to organize them all. No more sockets laying around in places you didn’t expect to find them.
Storage Drawer Cabinet
My husband has a couple of ones similar to these and is always complaining he needs more. I’m telling you, the man has too much crap, but hey, at least he has intentions of being organized! These Storage Drawer Cabinets are perfect for storing nails, bolts, and nuts. A great feature is that the drawers are see-through, so you can see what’s inside!
These Steel Peg Boards are always handy if your guy isn’t like my husband and doesn’t have numerous toolboxes or cabinets. They are convenient for hand tools on the wall. My dad stored his tools like this, but his wasn’t steel. These pegboards are easy to install because they mount directly into studs or sheet rock with no framework required.
Extension Cord Winder
I actually bought this Extension Cord Winder for my husband 3 years ago. It took him 2 years to finally install and use it, and now he wants a couple more. He is incredibly particular about how his cords are put up, and this saves him quite a bit of time. The cord winder is great for using indoors or outdoors.
All of the 10 budget friendly father’s day gift ideas mentioned above have been bought for my husband. Or, he wants them, or he has bought them himself. The best part is they will not break the bank. And I am all for organizing tools!
