Unique, Last-Minute Father’s Day Gifts

Did you know that most people are more likely to spend more money on a Mother’s Day Gift than on a Father’s Day gift? About $12 billion will be spent on buying Father’s Day gifts every year compared to the $23 billion that we spend on Mother’s Day. The average American spends about $135 on a Father’s Day gift and about $186 on a Mother’s Day gift.

Anyway, you look at it, Mom just seems to get a little more respect. Still, that doesn’t mean dear old Dad should get the short shrift, or unsympathetic treatment. You don’t even have to spend $135. There are many unique gifts that you can buy for Dad that cost under $55. They are great last-minute gifts or ideas for next year.

Clarks’ Mens New Markdowns 55% Sale

This is the shoe brand the I fell in love with in college and never fell out of love with. The shoemaker has been in business almost 200 years. Their first model was made from the excess shearing of sheepskin. The company reportedly designed the world’s first foot shaped shoe. Now, it has over 22,000 designs. The company is running a sale on almost 130 designs at up to 55% off. You can also get a discount of 15% just for signing up to their newsletter.

Bourbon-Infused Coffee

This is a gift Dad will remember. This product is made by a process where batches of Arabica coffee beans are proprietarily infused with a minute amount of bourbon. Contrary to the name, the alcohol is burned off during the roasting process. So, while Dad won’t get a buzz sipping on this brew, he will enjoy flavor accents of bourbon while being properly caffeinated. You get buy it for about $20.

DIY Hot Sauce Kit

What Dad doesn’t have a hopefully non-embarrassing hobby? Many try to make their own craft beer or perfect their own grilling techniques. Set your father apart by helping to make his own hot sauces. This product comes with various spices, vinegars, customizable bottle labels, and allows Dad to make up to six small batches of his own hot sauce. Available for about $35.

YETI Rambler 20 oz Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tumbler

YETI coolers have been all the rage for the past few years. They are built for people who love the outdoors and fishing. YETI coolers are built to withstand bear attack and can keep drinks, fish, and game cold for days. They can also cost between $300 and $500. If that is beyond your budget, you can get Dad the next best thing, a YETI brand, 20-ounce tumbler that will keep his cool drinks cool and hot drinks hot for hours. You can buy it for about $30.

Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky

Yes, we want Dad to moderate his drinking as he gets older. Still, there is nothing wrong with a sip every now and then. This is Japanese malt whisky that has a pleasant, spicy, and fruity flavor accent. You can order it for about $54 at Drizly, an online service that makes shopping from your smart device easier and more convenient.

Think Outside the Box for Dad

OK, Mom gets a little more love. Just don’t tell Dad, and give him a gift that stands out more than a tie or holiday card.  Here is a great out of the box idea – if your dad is an electronics fan, why not get him a soldiering iron and some Pico – power supplies?  He would love the chance to build electronics gear in the basement.
