Some respondents planned to purchase for their husbands, sons, or other father figures in their lives although about half said they would purchase for their own dads.

When it comes to Father’s Day, how much does the average person spend?

How can you celebrate a holiday with Dad without breaking the bank?

No matter who you’re getting a holiday gift for, you can still get a great gift without breaking the bank. To show your father you care in a financially savvy way, here are some tips.

  • Take advantage of rewards. Find out which rewards credit cards are best for gift purchases. It may be a good idea to get a credit card that offers great rewards, such as earning 3% cash back on dining or entertainment.
  • Don’t miss summer sales. When trying to manage your finances, look at retailers’ ads around Father’s Day to see whether they have any holiday sales running.
  • Cook at home. As opposed to dropping a ton of money at a restaurant, cook your dad’s favorite meal. Besides being cheaper, it will also be healthier.
  • Think outside the box. Instead of sticking with boring gifts, like neckties, think of something unique and meaningful. For example, you could write him a note explaining all the lessons he’s taught you throughout the years.
