Frugal Father's Day gifts

Father's Day is just a few weeks away!  And so it's time to get thinking about great gifts for Dad.

Here, my kids will do the usual artwork type gifts for Dad. Photos and special foods are common as well.  But here are some different, creative frugal Father's Day gift ideas I've found:
  • Stacy Makes Cents has several fabulous ideas - clean Dad's car!  Or have a picnic in front of the ball game on TV!
  • Lazy Man and Money suggests a ratcheting screwdriver or a electronics charging station.  Both are pretty inexpensive to buy and are very useful.
  • The Dollar Stretcher suggests creating a time capsule of Dad's favorite things.
  • The Simple Dollar suggests the book The Dangerous Book for Boys.  I've read this, and it's chock-full of activities that men and their sons (and their daughters and wives) can do together. 
  • The Crafty Crow has a homemade pinball game!  Perhaps the gift could be the materials to build it, and Dad and the kids could build it together.
Want to give an expensive gift, but don't want to spend money on it?
