Frugalista Gift Ideas 4 Father: Love to Daddy the Outdoorsman




 Whatever we call him any of the above or simply by his given name, most of us are pretty fond of the “old man”.  To paraphrase an old song:  

I’ll always love my (Daddy), (he’s) my favorite (guy).

You have just over two weeks to buy him the perfect gift. And if he’s a new Dad, Mom, you might have double gift duty. The Frugalista Gift Guide is here to help.  These gift ideas fit the Daddy who likes to get physical or work outside.

This Daddy would probably rather not be gifted with a tie.
