Does anyone else find men really hard to shop for? There are a few go-to gifts for them, but those all tend to be cheesy, lame, or expensive. Now that my husband is a dad, I feel like the pressure is really on to find him awesome gifts. He puts so much of himself into taking care of my son and I that when we get him something special, we want it to be just as great as he is. It doesn’t help that we are usually on a tight budget. This post has 10 great gift ideas for dad that fit any budget.

Whether you are shopping for your own dad or for dad to your kiddos, here are 10 great gift ideas for dad.
Jord makes beautiful wood watches that any dad would love. I recently got one for my husband, and he absolutely loves it. He isn’t usually the one being spoiled in our home, so a nice gift like this cool watch really meant a lot to him. You can even have them engraved for the perfect special occasion gift.

What is it with men and drones? I swear, they all turn back into children when they get near one.
Drones really range in price depending on what you want.
If you are just looking for something “cheap” and fun, this little guy comes in right under $20.
This one here has really great reviews and is pretty reasonably priced at $39.99
Drones that have a camera and long fly time can start to get pricey. This one for $109.99 looks really cool lit up in the dark and won’t entirely break the bank.
My husband actually bought himself this speaker as a gift once. Haha. It’s small and portable and has a great battery life. He mostly uses it when he is working out in the garage or the yard.
This is the perfect gift for a new daddy, but I’m sure any daddy would love it! I bought a shirt this one for my husband to meet our son, and he still wears it all the time.
Hot Sauce Kit
If you have a man in your life who loves hot sauce and projects, a hot sauce making kit is the perfect gift for him!
Bonus ideas – for the man who loves projects but not hot sauce, you can try a beer making kit or cheese making kit.
My husband is a meat fanatic, and smoking meats is one of his favorite cooking activities!
We have an electric smoker and it does the trick. He has, however, been lusting over a gas smoker if you want to splurge a little more.
This is one of those oldie but goodie ideas. Anything from a grill apron to grilling utensils is an appreciated and practical gift. If you’re looking for something a little goofier, this beer belt keeps dads drinks close and safe while he grills.
Keeping it along the lines of the meat-eating dad, this bacon cooker is probably more of a novelty than anything. At the same time, who couldn’t use an appliance dedicated just to bacon?
For the dad who wants the power to fix anything right in his pocket…these little gizmos are super handy and super portable. They also have the added bonus of making him feel a little like Inspector Gadget.
A Goofy Coffee Cup
When all else fails, just stick to the classic. There is a goofy coffee cup somewhere on Amazon to please every dad’s sense of humor. Just search “coffee cup for dad,” and you will have plenty of options to choose from.
Now, as promised – here is the place to enter to win a Jord gift card.
You can use it to buy a gift for Dad or just one for yourself. (Have you seen those ladies watches? So gorgeous!) As a thank you for entering, everyone who doesn’t win will win a $25 credit to use towards one of these cool watches!
