We’re not going to lie, giving dad the newest TV or the hottest gadget is nice, but it’s not necessary. Share a beer with him and give him something small and his day will be just as special. But affordable doesn’t mean junky. Here are some of our favorite gifts for Dad, under $50, you can give your old man this Father’s Day.


Jerky Crafting Kit

Give a man jerky and he’ll snack for day; teach a man to make jerky and he’ll snack for a lifetime. With the Jerky Crafting Kit, dad doesn’t need to sign up for Pinterest to figure out how to make killer jerky. He just hits up the butcher shop for his meath of choice and the kit will help him handle the rest.


Dead Distillers

Reading about the history of American spirits is almost as fun as consuming them. Maybe allow dad the chance to pair them together by giving him a copy of one of our favorite recent reads: Dead Distillers: A History of the Upstarts and Outlaws Who Made American Spirits. From prohibition-era bootleggers to modern day craft distilleries, pops will get a lesson in boozy patriotism.


Dollar Shave Club

There’s a very good chance dad is blowing way too much money on razors and blades. It’s time to introduce him to the future of shaving: Dollar Shave Club. Give him the gift of fresh blades every month. When it’s time for him to start picking up the tab, he’ll be shocked at how affordable razor blades can be. Toss in some shave butter and shower products and revamp his entire morning routine.


MeUndies Boxer Briefs

Summer means ditching bulky, uncomfortable attire and opting for comfort. And no gift will deliver that comfort like MeUndies. Their boxer briefs are made of MicroModal fabric that’s 3x softer than cotton, so even if dad has to toss on some dress pants for the office, he’ll feel like a million bucks. Thanks to free shipping to the U.S. and Canada, you can even save a bit on your gift.


Trees Knees Spicy Maple

If dad’s a breakfast guy—and, frankly, who isn’t a breakfast guy?—help him elevate his morning feast with Trees Knees Spicy Maple. The combination of sweet maple syrup from the Catskill mountains and spicy peppers makes for a breakfast condiment loaded with flavor. His pancakes and bacon platters will never be the same.


Pelican Progear Photoluminescent Flashlight

When there’s a power outage and dad can’t see, he’ll reach for a flashlight. But how does he find that flashlight if he can’t see? The dilemma can be resolved with the Pelican Progear Photoluminescent Flashlight, which glows in the dark and is highly visible in pitch black environments.


Craftsman Flex Claw Hammer

Toolbox space is always at a premium. If dad’s collection of tools looks like a kitchen junk drawer, give him the Flex Claw Hammer, which combines the power of a hammer with that of an adjustable pry bar. Not only does it take the place of two tools, but it boasts a magnetic nail starter to keep dad from cursing when he drops a nail while on a ladder.


Lift Trivet

Many trivets look like they belong at grandma’s house or in some aisle of a craft store. The Lift Trivet does not. This solid brass trivet is what dad should rest his cast iron pan on after he cooks a few burgers. It’s minimal, solid, and far nicer than the lattice numbers that look like an art school project.


Paint With Gunpowder Prints

There’s something about these prints that just makes them feel like they belong in a lodge. So whether dad has an all-out mancave or not, they’ll add a dose of stylish machismo to the space he puts one in. Each print is based off a work by Danny Shervin, an artist who works with gunpowder. Yes, gunpowder.


Fathers Quarterly

Fathers Quarterly is one of the most unique publications we’ve ever come across—it’s also one of the best. The book/magazine focuses on fatherhood, culture, and travel, and meshes all those topics into one publication filled with original essays, interviews, and reports. It will remind him of the greatest thing he’s ever done: become a dad.


Hot Sauce Kit

For the father who fears no pepper, give him the gift of a scorched palate. This Hot Sauce Kit lets dad craft two of his very own spicy sauces. Maybe it will even inspire him to continue doing so and to leave the sriracha on the shelf. Just watch your eggs in the morning.


Weekly Desk Pad

Dads and organization go hand-in-hand, or so it seems. For for the father who doesn’t rely on apps, give him this Weekly Desk Pad, which will help him keep his plans in plainview when he’s working at his desk. It’s clean and easy to use, unlike 90% of the apps he’s tried out for a while.
