Dads love carrying around evidence of their pride and joy. We adore this personalized, hand-stamped key chain from ByHannahDesign on Etsy, and the price is unbelievable.
Editor's note: We found these great gifts under $50, but prices can change quickly on the Internet so we haven't included them here. Click the product titles below for current prices.
Artwork of the Month Club
An artwork-of-the-month-club "membership" from the kids is virtually free! Just promise Dad a masterpiece per month.
But to make it extra special, present the first one in a Lil Davinci frame, which holds up to 50 pieces at a time, so it can display the whole year's worth of artwork and then some.
A fascinating read
If he's a reader, a great gift is simply a few hours to himself each week to indulge in his passion. While there's no shortage of amazing books out there, we're intrigued by Phil Jackson's Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success. The former head coach of the Chicago Bulls and L.A. Lakers has more NBA championship rings than he has fingers. In his newest book, Jackson talks about life lessons that taught him about leadership, teamwork, and trust. The takeaway advice applies to hoopsters but also everyday dads whether he's a basketball fan or not.
For the beer lover
Promise, we're not getting cliché about dads and beer. The truth is, we'd love this gift too! A dozen 12-ounce beers from U.S. microbreweries each month, for as many months as you decide to pay for. That's three bottles of four new varieties a month to sip (slowly and with great pleasure) – and hopefully to share with you.
Photographic phone case
Smart phones are the new brag books. And now Dad can show off his favorite kid pics without even turning the phone on. Just upload a favorite photo (or three) of the family to create your own custom phone case. You can even grab them right from Facebook or Instagram. It's a gift no doting father can resist.
