Father's Day

WSVN -- Michael O'Hara likes the simple things for Father's Day. Michael O'Hara: "Spending time with the family is definitely something I'd love to do on that day.."

For Michael, it's family first on Father's Day, and that means doing something everyone can enjoy.

Michael O'Hara: "Any tickets that we can all go as a family is something that we would love to do."

And there are family friendly prices on tickets like Zoom Miami, a Marlin's game or for mom and dad a night out at a comedy club.

Dee Trillo: "There's no need to spend a lot of money- all you have to do is just get creative."

Dee Trillo has a website call Haute Frugalista. She says there are lots of low cost ways to show dad you're thinking of him.

Dee Trillo: "Something like baking cookies is very easy because it's economical just get some dough get it ready the kids are involved they're having fun."

Homemade gifts come from the heart and don't stress the pocketbook like artwork cards and IOU chores to be redeemed whenever dad needs a break. It's also easy to make a mix of his favorite tunes for the cost of a batch of CDs.

Dee Trillo: "It's a great way for them to feel connected to the children because they'll remember that they made something so special for them."

And there are all kinds of gifts under $50. Keep an eye out for Father's Day deals on Living Social and Groupon or take a look at sites like sesame.com for gift sets for him this cocktail kit, and outdoor set can be delivered to your doorstep or go vintage and treat him to a hot shave at Junior and Hatter's in Wynwood.

Dee Trillo: "it's a special treatment. It's way for them to just get away from the day and just take care of themselves."

For Michael, simple gifts are the best.

Michael O'Hara: "Hearing Shawna say happy Father's Day, that would be definitely be right up there."

And that's a gift that is priceless.
