10 for $10: Dad’s Day Edition

I didn’t do a 10 for $10 for Mother’s Day last month (mostly because of timing), but I thought in the spirit of saying hurrah for the dudes for once, it might be nice to spin one for you this month. The idea behind all of these gifts is to pick up a trinket for an important dad-type figure in your life. Maybe it’s a finishing touch to an existing gift idea or a special experience you’ve concocted for the day. Maybe it’s for the father of your collective fur babies (pets). Maybe it’s for the curmudgeonly dad that doesn’t reallllly want to celebrate the day. Or maybe it’s for a new father-in-law that you don’t have an uber tight bond with. Whatever the case, all of these fantastic gifts are available for $10 or less (not including shipping, taxes, etc.) and are well worth looking into.
