Father’s Day gifts: The best ideas under $30

This story is part of Father’s Day gift guide 2020. With our top offers for fathers who love technology.

If you haven’t checked the calendar recently, Father’s Day is quickly approaching. It’s June 21st, to be exact. This means that time is running out to find out what you love, dear old father – and get it in time. However, don’t worry if you have little money. There are lots of great gifts for $ 30 or less. I have summarized some of my favorites below (and will add more as soon as I find them, so bookmark this page).

Just don’t wait too long to order something. It may take two to three weeks for some of the items to arrive here. So plan accordingly. In the meantime, if you have another idea for an affordable gift for your dad, give them a call in the comments!

Penguin books

Why does the author’s name ring? Oh, he’s just the co-creator of a little TV show called Game of Thrones. This novel came first and it says “Dad” everywhere: in war-torn Russia, two young men are sentenced to death. Your only hope is to complete an impossible mission for a crazy colonel. City of Thieves is exciting from the first page, but it’s also fun. Dad will love it.

Atlas Coffee Club

The Atlas Coffee Club delivers beans from a single world from all over the world: Brazil, Costa Rica, Myanmar, Vietnam and so on. The company pays “far above market prices” for micro-coffee lots to “ensure ethically sustainable cultivation methods”.

With this offer, you can get Papa his first 12-ounce bag for free (no shipping) with every subscription. Just apply the promo code 1stFreeFathersDay at checkout.


Does dad like a cold brewski? The BruMate promises to keep cans 20 times colder than a neoprene sleeve. It works with both 12- and 16-ounce cans and can also be used as an insulated pint glass. The BruMate is available in different colors, but pay close attention to the availability. Many of them are not dispatched for at least a week.

Chat books

Do you have time to put together some of your favorite family photos? They turn chatbooks into souvenir books with a Father’s Day envelope. Prices start at just $ 10 for a 30-page 6×6-inch book. You can get larger versions with more pages for not much more.


Everyone knows that fathers love “clickers” (TV remote controls). But that’s a different kind of clckr. It attaches to the back of a phone to provide a secure grip and stand that supports both portrait (reading: zoom) and landscape (reading: Netflix) viewing. When it is closed, it can still be charged wirelessly, which I found surprising and impressive.

The universal version for $ 15 can be used with almost any phone, but Clckr also makes cases ($ 30 to $ 35) that incorporate the handle stand.

Colonel Popper

A product with a dad joke of a name (Colonel Popper … see what it did there?), This fantastic kitchen tool makes a perfect bowl of popcorn every time. It is also healthier and cheaper than popcorn from the microwave because you only need to fill in a few grains and add some oil (optional). A nice additional benefit: it collapses to store flat when not in use.

The bowl is currently available for $ 16 to $ 17, depending on the color. However, the price has fluctuated in recent weeks and occasionally rose to $ 25.

Hunt a murderer

For the father who loves to solve crimes, puzzles, puzzles or all of that, there is Hunt A Killer. Every month he receives a box of tools, evidence, clues, and more to eliminate suspects and identify the killer. Your gift can only be the first box or a “season pass” (basically the whole puzzle, beginning to end) of six months.

Whatever you choose, use the promo code CNETHAK25 25% discount on the first box.

Life is good

I admit that I love the Life is Good brand. Love the shirts, love the humor, love the message. (And, hey, now more than ever? We need memories of this life can be good.) You can find almost two dozen father-friendly shirts to choose from, all for $ 28 – but for a limited time, you can use the promo code CNETDAD to get a 15% discount on your order.

Rocket book

Does your father like to take notes? Sketch ideas? Draw doodles? Give him the last notebook he’ll ever need. The Rocketbook is an intelligent, reusable, spiral-bound pad that can be wiped with a damp cloth. It is also combined with the Rocketbook app to store all of Dad’s notes in the cloud.

Different sizes are available. The Core Executive Dot Grid version currently costs $ 32. Use the promo code 5RBCNET to get a $ 5 discount.


Variety is the spice of life, but spices provide variety! (I just made it up. I can’t decide if it’s a genius or …) Spiceology is a chef-owned for hundreds of interesting and unusual blends, herbs, salts, powders, and the like – lots of things who have favourited Dad Help Increase His Cooking Game.

You could start him off with something like Derek Wolf’s South American variety pack, which contains the three rubs pictured above. Use the promo code WELOVEDAD to get a 10% discount on the or something else in the Spiceology Store.
