When it comes to celebrating the people in your life, thought matters more than the present itself. Should you choose or need to celebrate Father’s Day with a low-cost budget, rest assured there are plenty of options at your disposal.

Low-Cost Ways to Celebrate the Dad in Your Family


Cards are such a special way to show love. This Father’s Day, think about helping your kids work on an art project and deliver a thoughtful and personal greeting card. This is much cheaper than a store-bought card and packs much more personality as well! Follow this link for some inspiration.

Days out

Whether it is a day spent at the beach, picnicking, or hiking (since we are so close to the summer), it’s easy enough to pack up some essentials and spend a day doing what dad loves doing most. Take plenty of photos and get busy making memories.


Food is never a bad idea, and meals are perfect for any occasion. If the grandparents are nearby, consider getting them involved, too! Summertime is perfect for barbecuing, so have the kids help out with the prep. Perhaps get matching aprons or even t-shirts for the cookout to make it more fun! Here are some recipes to get some ideas.


Not everyone is outdoorsy. If that’s the case, then the arts will come to your rescue! Look into some local museums, concerts or even botanical gardens.

I believe that the general theme here is to focus on quality time spent with dad and create good memories, children grow, and people get older, it is the way of nature, and we should always strive to make the most of our time with the ones we care about.
