When it comes to Father’s Day, showing you care doesn’t have to break the bank. There are plenty of thoughtful, useful, and unique items you can get the dad in your life without spending a fortune. Here are a few budget-friendly gift ideas for Father’s Day: 

  
A Wireless Charging Stand
For the tech-savvy dad, a wireless charging stand is the perfect gift. With this stand, he can simply drop his phone on it and let it charge by touch. It’s a thoughtful present for the dad who appreciates convenience.


Grill Gloves
While grill gloves are designed to protect from the intense heat of a grill or smoker, they can also be used indoors to grab things from the oven. This versatile and practical gift is perfect for the dad who loves to cook.

Photo Book
Create a photo book filled with happy, cherished memories. Many online services offer affordable and easily customizable options.

A Day Out
Plan a day doing something the father figure in your life loves, whether it’s fishing, boating, or visiting a local attraction.

Homemade Goods
Bake his favorite cookies or prepare his favorite meal.

DIY Crafts
Consider making something special like a hand-painted mug or a customized picture frame to hold some of his favorite photos of you both.

A Snack Basket
Compile a few of dad’s favorite snacks, put them in a nice container, and you have a simple yet thoughtful gift. 

Gift Financial Planning Services
If your dad is interested in managing his finances, consider gifting him a session with a financial advisor. If either you or your dad are an Ascend member, scheduling an appointment with an advisor is free!

Quality Time
