FRUGAL GIFT IDEAS: MATCHING FATHER’S LOVE – DEN STYLE
APPRECIATE DAD WITH WHAT HE APPRECIATES
31% of children spend more than $61 on Dad for Father’s Day. 52% will spend up to $60. At least, according to a recent retailmenot.com survey.
Whether you find a $61 Frugalista Gift for $35 or a $130 one for $65, make certain it’s something Dad will use and/or love. Dad’s surveyed specifically expressed disdain for gifts of ties, slogan t-shirts, coffee mugs and the like. Don’t be that gift giver.
FOR DAD WHO LOVES HIS DEN
With the Our Family Rules wood framed sign, Dad can simply point at the sign to correct misbehaving members. Contains phrases like: Be Grateful For What You Have, Stand Up For Each Other, No Hitting.
The Thirstystone “Old World Map’ Drink Coaster Collection will keep Dad’s surfaces ring free, look great and act as a conversation starter. Made of absorbent sandstone, Large enough for beer mugs! Set of four.

Time? Who cares?! The retired or quirky Dad might get a kick out of the ‘Whatever’ Clock. It’ll certainly get visitors to his den talking.

Handcrafted, aged cheese, whole grain crackers flavored with cherries, seeds, nuts and honey), blood orange preserves (sweet and spicy!) and salami Casalingo.
He’ll probably have some wine with that cheese. And a lot of dad’s will have a few bottles around. So, might love the look of those bottles floating on the wall. The curved steel of Tiburon Wine Rack holds 8 bottles.
Look around Dad’s den. What’s missing to make it a true place of refuge? Needs replacing? Would add a kick?
What would he love to have?
