Treat your dad this Father’s Day with these easy gifts, all under $100. Show that you appreciate him, even through all his dad jokes and quirks. Every dad is unique, but they can fall into a few different categories, whether he’s the ultimate sports fan, the grill master, or still listening to his favorite records on a turn table.
Make sure the gift is something that reflects his personality, he will use, and he has shown interest in buying for himself, but failed to buy it because he’s busy being your dad (and, let’s be honest, spending money on you instead of himself).
The Outdoorsy Dad
Leisurelife Steel Fire pit, $59.99, target.com
Perfect for summertime s’mores and backyard BBQs that last late into the night, he will be happy to have a fire to stoke every now and then and to have someone make him an extra crispy s’more.
The Techie Dad

This thumb-sized device plugs into the HDMI port of any TV and lets him “cast” any app or show from Android, iPhone, iPad, or a laptop devices onto the big screen.
The Grill Master Dad
Fire Wire Flexible Grilling Skewers, $15.96 for one, at Williams Sonoma

Foil Stamped DC Map, $63 for an 8×10 with frame, minted.com
