What does dad want for the holidays? It can be hard to know. He might say “it’s the thought that counts,” and while that may be true, everyone still appreciates a small gift. So, we set out to find the best gifts for every type of dad; thoughtful and special gifts that won’t break your holiday budget. We combed through the many pages of deals on Jet to find the best options — and all for under $50. Spend more than $35, and you get free shipping, too. That leaves you plenty(ish) time if you shop now. Don’t miss all of the Strategist’s holiday gift coverage right here, too.
For the dad who likes a nice clean shave, this Braun is a (cheaper) cousin to the one tested and liked by deputy editor Jason Chen.
And we have not forgotten about the bearded dads out there. This 3-piece kit is well-priced and includes a boars hair brush, wash, and conditioner. Plus, Billy Jealousy has a great reputation in the beard grooming world.
You can never go wrong with a gift set.
Okay, so this is just a bit pricier than $50, but it’s a small price to pay for the cultiest of culty fragrances — introduced in 2006, it supposedly contains a molecule that smells different on each individual wearer. He can be the judge.
It’s true: You can get a Sonicare for under $50. It’s not top-of-the-line, but this electric toothbrush will eliminate three times more plaque than a manual toothbrush.
A bathtub caddy for the dad who could use a spa day at home, but not without his iPad. Also includes a dad-friendly wine glass holder.
