  • Father’s Day is June 20, and the holiday is fast approaching.
  • If you’re looking for thoughtful, affordable gifts, start with these 49 ideas, which cost under $50.
  • Need more gift ideas? Check out our overall best Father’s Day gifts and our specialized guides.

Editor’s note: It’s likely that many families will be spending Father’s Day apart this year due to the impact of the novel coronavirus. Nothing takes the place of time spent together, but if you’re looking to send a gift to Dad in lieu of a visit, we hope this list will help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

Ideally, you’d be able to empty the coffers for dad on Father’s Day. If money was of no object, you could rent out an amusement park or buy him a little quaint island for when retirement rolls around. But, if you’re working with a more realistic budget, you can still give him roughly the same feeling with any of these thoughtful gifts under $50.

To help with your shopping, we’ve put together 49 gifts that fit the bill. Even if you just grab a comfortable throw blanket for a night of movie and popcorn, Dad might just love the gesture most.

The top 5 Father’s Day gifts:

1. A Hydro Flask water bottle

2. A delicious but guilt-free cereal

3. A waterproof speaker

4. A Harry’s shaving kit

5. White Walker scotch

Soothe E-Gift Card or Physical Gift Card, select your amount, available at Soothe

Soothe is a relatively new service that can help Dad book a massage to his home in as little as an hour.

They offer Swedish, deep tissue, sports, prenatal, and couples massages.

Soothe is currently available to book in 66 cities in the US and Canada. If you’re not sure what amount to choose for a gift card, Soothe says the average cost for a one-time, 60-minute massage is $115, but price varies by location, with cities like New York charging up to $182 for that treatment. Soothe also offers subscriptions if you really want to pamper him this year. 

*Due to the novel coronavirus, gift cards are unable to be used for massages, although they can be applied to Soothe’s apparel and equipment.
