Great gift ideas for Father’s day

MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Father’s Day is coming up this weekend, and that means many people will be out looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift.

Kathrine Bolas, the marketing manager for the Westfield Connectiut Shopping Centers, helped News 8 come up with some cool and affordable gift ideas.

For $25 and under, you can buy photo frames with custom engraving from Things Remembered. If your dad is a sports fan, help him support his favorite team with a hat from Lids priced at $25 each, buy one get one half off. For the dad that likes to be pampered, the perfect shaving kit from ULTA Beauty is only $25.

If Dad is a golfer, the Samsonite golf trunk organizer is only $40 at Dick’s Sporting Goods. “He can keep his car nice and organized and in one spot so he’s ready to go,” said Bolas.

If dad dresses up for work every day, Lord and Taylor has cufflinks, leather bracelets, tie clips and other accessories for under $50.

Craft beers are also really popular these days and you may not know that each beer has its own specifically shaped glass to compliment the taste. You can pick up a $29 six-piece craft beer glass set for dad if he’s a beer enthusiast.

If you have a first time dad or a daddy-to-be, our friends at Bye-Bye-Baby put together a gift set for under $100.

If dad likes to grill, there’s the Blue Tooth Grill Thermometer, which is expected to be popular this year.

“Dad can go back inside and finish watching the game, but still keep an eye on what’s cooking,” said Bolas. “It will send a message to your smart device to let you know when the food is ready.”

If you’re looking to save money, Bolas recommends visiting your mall’s website and the social media pages of your favorite stores for exclusive discounts.
