GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
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.
For 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.
$60 (unframed) $85-95 (canvas*) $195 (framed) ballparkblueprints.com

Sibling gift sharing opportunity
For the diehard fans, caps like the Brooklyn Dodgers MLB Anniversary 59FIFTY Cap make a memorable gift. One that reminds them of you when they wear it–and they’ll wear it often. Except for those who display it (still thinking of you as they pass the display). These Limited Editions, made of 10%cashmere and 90% wool, sports their team’s embroidered (raised) logo on the front with the 59th Anniversary patch on the side and the organizations (i.e. MLB) on the back.
