June 3rd, 2013 Personal Finance

By the time you've exhausted all of your gift ideas for Mother's Day, you're going to need to start thinking about what you can get your pop for Father's Day! You'll have about a month to do so, but it doesn't hurt to start brainstorming sooner rather than later. Gift-giving can be dreadful if you have a limited amount of cash to spend, but the good thing about parents is that you don't need to splurge to show them how much you care. Here are some affordable gift ideas you can use for your dad this Father's Day.

1. Monthly club
Parenting magazine claims that there are several monthly clubs you can choose for your dad, ranging from beer to cigars. Think about signing him up for one to offer him a gift that keeps on giving!

2. Sneakers
Chances are, your dad is still walking around with the same old sneakers that he wore to the gym 10 years ago. It's no secret that men aren't big on being fashionable, but that doesn't mean that your pop couldn't use a new pair of comfortable shoes on Father's Day, according to Redbook magazine. Just make sure you save the receipt in case you purchase the wrong size!

3. Headphones
If your dad is tech-savvy or simply loves music, Reader's Digest magazine encourages you to buy him some sweet headphones he can use in and out of the office this Father's Day. If you find a few extra bucks in your budget, consider going for a noise-canceling variety.

4. Gift card
Have you exhausted all of your options to no avail? There's always the good old gift card if you're truly stuck. To make it a bit more personal, think about getting him a gift card to a place where you know he shops.
