Father’s Day is this Sunday and if you are trying to figure out what gift to get Dad on his special day this DIY Gift in a Jar is an easy and affordable gift idea. Creating a gift for Dad in a Jar is not only easy to create but is also budget-friendly as all of the products can easily be found in Walmart stores. Since I created a beauty bag for Mom on Mother’s Day, I thought I would keep with the same sort of theme for Dad but give him products that I know he’ll use.
A great place to start when planning out your Father’s Day gift or any gift for that matter is to look through the Walmart AD on Walmart.com. Since we don’t get the newspaper, it is great knowing that I can look up Walmart’s most current ad when it is convenient for me. Looking through a circular is always my go-to before planning out a gift for someone.
Once I got an idea of what I wanted to get my husband for Father’s Day I began to plan out my gift. I wanted to put together a gift for him that had a few things he could wear plus some products to make him feel special. The first two items on my list were shirts. I know my husband will never complain about a new shirt. Picking up a Hanes Comfort Tee ($4.47) in one of his favorite colors and something a little more special like a George Polo ($7.88) are sure to be instant favorites when he sees them. I loved that both of these shirts are less than $10 each.
Since Dad rarely splurges on himself, I thought I would pick up some, new-to-him facial products for his next shave. The Barbasol shaving cream was on rollback for $1.24. We can never have enough shaving cream in the house as my husband not only shaves his face but his entire head as well with the stuff. To go along with the necessary shaving cream, I also opted to get him an After Shave Lotion by Gillette for $2.12. And since Hubby doesn’t have a specific facial wash that he uses, I thought I would give him some Nivea Sensitive Face Wash ($4.94) to try out and see if he likes it.
Last but not least, no gift is complete without a card. I was shocked to see that Walmart has adorable cards starting at only $.47. Most of the time we personalize the card a bit by writing notes on the inside, so a simple card like this is all we really need to complete our gift.
Instead of wrapping our awesome gifts for Dad in a gift bag, I opted to pick up a small, half gallon glass jar, that I found in the home department at Walmart, to put his gifts in instead. I stuffed the inside of the glass jar with the grooming products and t-shirt and then wrapped the outside of the jar with the George Polo. Once Dad “unwraps” his gift he can then use the small glass jar as a candy dish on his office desk.
