Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day Gift Ideas from the Dollar Store! Good quality, inexpensive items that make a great barbecue themed gift basket for Dad! From barbecue tools, to candy and more!

You can put together a really nice gift basket for Dad, or your special guy, for Father’s day with some inexpensive and fun gifts from Dollarama (or The Dollar Store)! Fill it with gifts that he’ll find useful, delicious and practical, just like Dad loves!

Simple and Inexpensive!

It’s so easy to put together a nice gift basket for Dad filled with things you can find at the dollar store.  This would be especially fun for kids to assemble, just give them a $25 budget and a theme, and let them go!

Choose a theme and run with it!

The most simple theme, and one our Dad here would appreciate, is a barbecue theme.  Add items Dad can use like grilling tongs, basting brushes, squeeze bottles, barbecue lighters, utensils and more. Other themes that would be fun would be a candy theme, beach theme, picnic theme, sports theme or gardening theme…the possibilities are endlessly fun!

Use a practical ‘basket’ to wrap it up!

For this particular barbecue themed gift ‘basket’ we used a set of aluminum pans to hold everything…I thought this would be a great idea because really, Dad’s don’t use baskets do they? Aluminum tins for barbecuing are much more useful!

We filled our tin ‘basket’ with about $20 of barbecue items:

  • Barbecue Tongs
  • Basting Brush and Mixing Bowl
  • Barbecue Lighter
  • Squeeze bottle for sauces
  • Dad’s favourite candy
  • Skewers, foil, cheesecloth
  • Beer/Pop cozies
  • Everything you need for a backyard barbecue: plates, napkins, condiments
  • More ideas: aprons, gloves, barbecue utensils

Thoughtful on a budget is possible!

Who wouldn’t love to get a basket like this as a gift?  So fun!  I hope you found some ideas to put together a fun gift basket for Dad this Father’s Day!
