We’ve rounded up a number of inexpensive gifts that dad will love, from portable speakers to camping stoves.
When it comes down to it, we’d like to think what matters most is the amount of thought and care you’ve put into a gift. That’s why you shouldn’t feel stressed or guilty if you can’t afford to splurge on a Father’s Day gift — after all, there are plenty of great ideas that’ll make your dad feel special without blowing your budget.
With the help of several Verge staffers, we’ve rounded up a range of gifts catered toward a variety of interests, all of which will cost you less than $50. We’ve got a Lord of the Rings-inspired deck for those who like card games as well as a classic strategy title. We also have recs for adventurers, including a portable camping stove and a foldable saw as well as a small repair kit for dads who are into tinkering. There are even a few newer gadgets like the Echo Pop, a smart speaker that also doubles as a Wi-Fi extender.
Take a look and see for yourself just how far a Grant will take you.
