2017 Father’s Day Gift Ideas
It’s the season to honor our Fathers again. He deserves the best. We usually celebrate by simply wishing him a Happy Father’s Day, allow him to sleep late with no disturbance from the kids, make or buy special cards or prepare his favorite meal. Father’s Day gift buying is often ignored because it seems like he has everything but here are some excellent tips that can allow you to make his day special and affordable while creating the best memories.
1) Have a steakhouse dinner at home!
Instead of going to an expensive restaurant and paying over $20 bucks for a Porterhouse steak, try visiting your local supermarket for deals. For that same amount of money, you can purchase 2 small steaks, lettuce, tomato, and other toppings for a fresh garden salad, and a bottle of Chardonnay or Moscato for an amazing dinner.
2) Visit your local Dollar store!
This option is a surefire win especially when shopping for multiple people. Purchase Father’s Day cards at $1 each and some are even 2 for a $1. Also take advantage of basic candles, figurines, and balloons instead of paying the extra money at department stores for these items.
