35 FATHER’S DAY GIFTS IDEAS UNDER $50
FOODIE GIFTS FOR DAD
I wanted to start off with foodie gifts for all the dads. I have a husband who loves to eat and drink, but not so much loving the cooking and prepping part of the cooking and eating. As long as someone else is doing all the cooking, prepping and cleaning . . . he is all good. There are so many great gift options out there for Father's Day for all the foodie dads. Here are a range of foodie gifts that we actually use. I’m starting off with what would work from dawn to dusk.

GIFTS HE WILL REALLY USE
Here are a few items you can purchase this year that I title gifts dad will really use. I have purchased so many things for my husband that sit in a corner until I donate or give them away.

Take it from me, buy gifts for dad that he will love and use regularly.

This particular collapsible dolly is probably the best gift I have ever given to my husband and brothers. This thing is a gem! Folds up, fits right in a car and works like a charm every.single.time! Makes moves small and large items so much easier. It is under five pounds, so even I can cart it around and manipulate it. Snap it together, no extra tools are needed at all.

I have to tell this crazy story. My husband travels with this knife, whilst he is driving. We drove to NYC once and he had this knife in his backpack. We went to visit the Statue of Liberty and they wouldn’t let him in with the knife in his backpack - which he TOTALLY forgot was in there. The security told him to go hid it outside, which he did, and we know someone was totatlly watching him or security went right out there and snagged it - either way - the knife was gone. Bummer! I think I will have to finally replace it again. No more trips for the knife though. There are a few different handles available and different size blades at various price points too.
