In this year’s Father’s Day Gift Guide, we’re excited to share a really fantastic selection of our favorite Father’s Day gifts under $20. Because hey, you don’t have to spend a ton to get some amazing Father’s Day gifts. We’ve truly scoured the corners of the web to find the coolest gifts for all kinds of dads, and — yay! — so much of it is on sale right now.

In the past we’ve shared plenty of the best Father’s Day gifts under $15 — and hey they’re all still fantastic. But we thought we’d go up just a wee bit and open things up, should you be up for spending $16 or $17 or maybe even $19.99.

This being 2020 and all, we’ll be skipping the movie tickets and the coupon for him to spend a day bowling with his friends. Still, we think you can find a Father’s Day gift that’s just perfect for your #1 Dad, Grandpa, Stepdad, or whichever special father figure you’re celebrating on Father’s Day this year.

All items have been editorially selected by our team. There is no compensation in exchange for inclusion.
