10 Frugal gift ideas: Matching Father’s Love – Devotional Style

FOR DAD WITH A DEVOTION

 

Whatever activity Dad might indulge in religiously, or thing he might worship, consider replacing worn ones. Adding accessories he might use. Or, gifting him a reminder of THAT most precious thing.  You know the one.

Look for Frugalista gift ideas in this series–especially those not shippable for receipt by Father’s Day–at local stores. For instance, a local golf store might have the golf toppers. Or, if it’s as special as Fenway Park, Dad might be willing to wait a day or two!

Any of these will also make great birthday, and other occasion, gifts for Dad.

 

Framed - BlackFor the Dad that collects sports memorabilia, consider blueprints like the Fenway Park – Boston Red Sox Several baseball and football blueprints available, as 18″ x 24″ printed on museum-quality paper stock. Different sizes for ploy-cotton blend canvas and framed. Hand drawn from original 1912 blueprints.

It could be his name and phone, in case he misplaces a club. Or, whatever would suit him.
