Father’s Day and Dad’s birthday can be tough. Here are the best gifts for Dad that a teen can afford, AND that Dad will actually use and appreciate!
What do you give to Dad??
Most men that I know go out and buy what they want or need on their own. But, our teens need to honor dad’s day, whether it’s a birthday or holiday, and purchasing a gift for dad is always a good thing! Dad birthday gifts and Fathers day gift ideas can be difficult to come up with, so read on for some cool gifts for dad, including gifts for the dad who has everything!
Almost all of these gifts for dad are less than $25 dollars. I did include a couple of more expensive items so that siblings and/or mom could chip in -still less than $50! *This post may contain affiliate links. My full disclosure policy is here.

Screenklean -made by the Peeps people for cleaning larger screens like ipads etc. I need this!
Soul insole – Does dad work on his feet all day? These are supposed to be amazing for reducing and maybe even eliminating foot pain!
Stankstix -Speaking of feet… Does dad have stinky feet? Or does he have stinky gear of some sort? These look pretty cool!
Yeti tumbler -This 26 oz. size will be great for no refills, no sweat exterior, keeps dad’s drink warm or cool… These are great!

Does dad love socks? Here are some great choices!

Best gifts for dad if you have a little bit more to spend…
If you have a little bit more to spend, or like the idea of an ongoing gift, here are some subscription gift ideas for dad.
Giving gifts is a great way to show thoughtfulness
One thing that we have really encourage our kids to do over the years, is to think of others. Gift giving is such a fun way to show someone love. Your teen doesn’t need to spend lots of money to give their dad a thoughtful gift. They don’t even have to spend anything!
Some of the best gifts for dad can be funny homemade cards or coupons for jobs or things that they can do with dad over the next few months.
Encourage your teens to think ahead… to know when their dad’s birthday is, to know when Father’s Day is, to acknowledge their love for their dads even if things are rough in their relationship right now. This is one thing that can be hard for our teens to do because dads can be gruff, and come across as grumpy at the end of a long day.
As moms, we need to find those times when they are getting along, and really help both sides to see that they really DO love each other, it just can be rocky sometimes. Help those dad and teens find ways to connect and bond!

Completely thoughtful and some ideas I will use, myself!
Thanks for this! Some great ideas here 🙂
Thanks! My boys and I were trying to think of things that teens could afford to buy for their dads:)
My boys aren’t teens, but these are still great ideas for them. I’ll send them your link.
I had to pin to my gift idea board!
Awesome! These gifts were fun to find.?
Mine is a dog dad and also his birthday is in a month so excited about looking at these more closely!
I appreciate it! Enjoy the holiday with him?
John, my husband, will be getting calls from all our children. From me, he will be getting the usual
tender love and extra care. And I will be thinking about my father–lost him when I was three.
I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure John will appreciate all the love from his family!
Great ideas and always good to teach kids to give, not just receive.
Isn’t that the truth?! We always tried to make gift giving fun when they are little, and it has carried over pretty well as they have become young adults…
