As much as you can never fully repay Dad for everything he did for you, he wouldn’t even want you to try. Because one of the best pieces of advice he may have given you is to be careful with your money and spend it wisely.
To that end, with Father’s Day swiftly approaching, we have several ideas for gifts for him that will set you back less than $100, but will leave a priceless impression in his heart and mind. These unique gifts will suit your budget as well as his personality.
For the father with a strong sense of personal style: our exclusive Packable Panama Hat can be packed into suitcases or squeezed flat for between-seat storage, yet the fibers’ unique woven pattern allow the hat to unfold back to its original shape. Its brim provides 360º of sun protection; woven fibers allow air to circulate.
For the father who lives by the motto always be prepared: The Smartphone Charging Emergency Lantern features two 3-watt LEDs that generate up to 250 lumens of bright light for up to 48 hours on low or six hours on high. When the battery is full, the unit can recharge a smartphone twice, an e-book once, and 40% of an iPad’s battery via the lantern’s USB port. The lantern recharges via USB in seven hours or its integrated hand crank provides up to ten minutes of light after one minute of cranking.
For the father with an artistic streak: The iPad Paintbrush allows him to create works of art on a tablet computer or smartphone. The paintbrush uses synthetic hairs infused with conductive properties, designed with the same taper, flexibility, and strength as traditional bristles, resulting in the same feel and authentic strokes. The other end of the brush has a rubber stylus that enables sketching or handwriting. Compatible with all devices with capacitive touchscreens including iPhone, Kindle Fire, Nexus, Samsung Tablet and more.
And for the father who loves to be the life of the party, The Full Bottle Wine Glass. One of our most popular unique gifts, this seamless mouth-blown glass can hold an entire bottle of wine. Its classic Bordeaux shape fits an entire hand, enabling effortless quaffing without abandoning social mores. Although it holds up to 750ml, the glass allows users to assure that they, in all honesty, had only one glass of wine.
