Whether you need a gift for Father's Day, a birthday or any other occasion, you don't need to spend a lot of money to give that special guy a present that will be appreciated. If you're short on cash, yet want to give him something unique, think outside the box. Here are seven gift ideas that won't cost you a small fortune:
1. A Magnetic Tool-Holding Wrist Band
What is this, you may ask? If your guy is a do-it-yourself man who enjoys working around the house, this is a neat and unique gift idea. It looks much like any typical wristband with one major exception: It has a built-in magnet. The magnet allows the wristband to "hold" bolts, nuts, screws and other small necessities while performing small tasks around the house.
2. A Ticket Stub Diary
Does the man in your life enjoy sporting events and rock concerts? If so, he may want to save those ticket stubs as a souvenir of memorable and fun times. Help him stay organized with a ticket stub journal or diary. These books, purchased at specialty shops, typically include clear sleeves for holding ticket stubs, as well as a space for writing special memories of that particular event.
3. Mini Desktop Dart Board
Here's a fun and inexpensive diversion for the guy who works in an office. A desktop miniature dart board will come complete with rubber darts and board. Fits nicely on most desks and is also a neat conversation piece.
4. An Emergency Kit for the Automobile
Every driver will appreciate this useful gift. Typically, the emergency car kit will contain a flashlight and batteries, car booster cable and first aid kit.
5. Hand Cream for Hard-Working Hands
Packaged in a convenient small tin, this is known as the working hands hand cream. Specifically formulated for a working man's hands, this cream will help heal dry, peeling or cracked skin. The nice thing about this cream is that it is odorless, so there will be no flowery or perfume scent for the manly man in your life.
6. Glow-in-the-Dark USB-Powered Light Bulb
If your guy enjoys using his laptop computer at night or in dimly lit room, this thoughtful and inexpensive gift might be ideal. It plugs into any standard USB port on a computer, providing light where it's needed.
7. Golf Club Pen Set
Here's a unique gift that is made for the golfer guy in your life. It's a three-piece pen set in the design of a wedge, wood and putter golf clubs. It is packaged in an attractive gift box.
There are many unique gift ideas that are inexpensive, so why settle for the ordinary? Get creative and give your guy something fun.
