DIY Sharpie Mug
My kids always want to give something to their dad on Father’s Day that’s just from them. And since they’ve passed the phase of coloring pictures of themselves with dad, or making him a cardboard tie – they’re needing some ideas they can afford on their own allowance. Here are some ideas to help you help them get ready – 11 Father’s Day Gifts from Kids under $5!
A great way to show dad you “get” him – just let him relax and enjoy his golf or baseball magazine in peace and quiet Amazon currently has TONS of $5 Magazine Subscriptions.
For gifting, it’s best to snag the current issue at the store so he has something to open while you wait for the subscription to arrive.
Coffee Mug or Travel Mug
Dad’s who like their coffee will like a mug that speaks to their manly side. This John Wayne Travel Mug is a fun one – and an add-on item for only $4.58! Or get a custom photo mug from York Photo for only $2.99 with code DRANK (through 4/14)

Grilling Apron with Handprints
Pick up an inexpensive dollar store apron and have the kids put their handprints on it in paint. Stencil their names, or write “King of the Grill” on the front – like this one over at rockinmama.
Ice Ball Maker
This ice ball maker is just one of those cool things dad would open and love. I say this because it’s been on the best-seller list for MONTHS on Amazon and my husband wants one too. Don’t question it – it’s just a dude thing I guess. (Some of these are $5 or under, and some are just a buck or so more)
If dad’s a movie-lover, a pass to go see a movie one Saturday afternoon might be right up his alley. You can get them a little cheaper at matinee prices – or search out a cheap theater near you where they show slightly older films.
If he works in an office – a photo mousepad is something dad can take with him that won’t claim any of the limited space on his desktop . Personalize it with pics of the kids doing fun things with dad. York Photo usually has a deal for one on their Special Offers page – or at least a 40% OFF Photo Gifts code. If they’re not currently offering any good mouse pad specials, you can always get one at Walmart for $9.96
Dad’s Favorite Snacks Basket
Have your child interview dad about his favorite snacks – and then print out some coupons and head to the store to get as much goodies as their allowance will allow. Help them put it together so it looks cute and rent a superhero movie from the Redbox for a nice evening of bonding.
A $5 Giftcard
Sometimes dads just need to treat themselves to a new crossword puzzle book, or some Starbucks or Baskin Robbins or Five Guys. Knowing their child spent some of their allowance to give them that little treat is kind of heartwarming
New Tacklebox & Lure
For the fishing dad, you can never have too many tackleboxes. More places to put all those new lures you want Amazon has several smaller boxes for around $3 – $5, so your kids should have enough $$ left to pick up a new lure too!
If you have a faith-filled dad, he might like an inspirational book. Some of them are a little pricey, but here are a few that are just $5 from Family Christian.
Nice Framed Picture
Find a good pic of dad and the kids and let them pick out a nice new frame. Kohl’s often has some nice frames at big discounts.
I hope some of these Father’s Day gift ideas under $5 helps you out! And we’d LOVE to hear any you can add to the list
And for a completely free – but utterly meaningful gift for the man you love, I highly recommend doing the Love List Challenge.

I bought one of these bags when it was on sale around Christmas for my husband, it fits this drill, battery and other odds and ends perfectly. Before I got this drill I researched a LOT ahead of time – and he’s been SO happy with it. The rechargeable battery lasts much longer than the old one he owned and it does a great job for all the DIY’s he tackled so far.
