More Bang for Your Buck: Father's Day Gifts
Finding gifts for dad is never easy. But if you want to make this a Father's Day to remember, forget buying a shirt and tie. In tonight's More Bang For The Buck, we've got some affordable ideas to impress even the manliest of men.
(WSVN) -- Changing diapers...
Teaching you how to ride a bike...
Getting tickets to the big game...
When it comes to getting the job done, sometimes a father does know best.
But if you want to show your dad how much you really care, why not be a little creative this year.
Let's start off with a gift that will keep on giving... Like signing up your proud papa to a monthly club.
Now, we're not talking fruit or cheese.
We're talking beer, wine, and cigars.
The cost - $30 dollars a month.
But what if dad's a little more adventurous.
Well, he may have outgrown most toys, but not the summer sled.
For $75 dollars, it's like a big skate board built for grass.
Alright, so maybe your old man's a little more in touch with his feelings.
So here's a great way to display a favorite photo.
While it may look like a regular picture frame, it's actually a light custom made to show off a very special memory.
And best of all, it will only set you back about $120 dollars.
Still, a little too pricey?
Well, if your dad's heart is on the green, you can order a set of monogrammed golf balls for $45 dollars.
Or fit him with a barbecue belt for $35 dollars. It'll hold all the tools needed for a good grilling.
Speaking of barbeque, why not buy the barbeque box.
It comes equipped with a spatula, sauce, special seasoning, even a cookbook.
And if that doesn't work, there's also a hot box and a box for new dads.
Each one $55 dollars.
But if that still doesn't do it...
Why not combine a couple of popular pastimes.
For about $2,000 dollars, dead old dad can watch his favorite movie while waiting to tee off.
Now, that' must really be what they mean when they say honor thy father.
