Is it just me or are Father’s Day gifts getting better? My inaugural Father’s Day gift guide was in 2010, and I had to dig deep to find things beyond socks and “#1 Dad” tees. Those traditional gifts are still around but I am blown away by all the options now! Things like CBD gummies, alcohol-free “spirits,” and unique personalized gifts are really mixing it up this year. Here are my top picks for Father’s Day gifts on a budget.
