Cool Father’s Day Gifts for Military Dads – All Under $30!


1. [amazon_textlink asin=’B0147K0ZEY’ text=’HyperChiller’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’hermoneymoves-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’a1613baa-9e47-11e7-8360-b7b1de6db116′] $29.9

Now Dad can chill his hot beverages in a flash without diluting his drink of choice. Grab Dad a HyperChiller and he can quickly make himself an iced coffee for his daily commute or chill down his favorite spirit without melted ice ruining it.





2. LuckyShot Upcycled Gear, starting at $8.99

Upcycled from repurposed ammo and artillery shells, LuckyShot products are a unique surprise, especially for military dads.  I think Dad will love their signature product, the .308 Bulletproof Whiskey Glass or a personalized .50 Cal bullet bottle opener.


3. Tactical Knives from LazerDesigns, starting at $13.99

Outdoorsmen, hunters, and the always prepared military dad will love these tactical knives that come in handy in a pinch.  Dad will also love the personalized message or emblem that you can engrave to his new gift.  He’ll definitely want to show this one off to his friends.



4.  Custom Foot Print Art, starting at $18

Footprint and handprint art from your little ones is always a cute gift idea.  If your little ones are still little, what better way than to memorialize their cuteness for Dad?  However, if you’re like me and lack the time, talent and patience to dip your toddler’s foot in paint, Esty shops can save the day.  I love Esty Shop, PitterPatterPrint’s take on keepsake art…and its less messy too!



5. Updated Photos of the Kids, FREE

Do people at your husband’s work still think he still has toddlers because the framed pictures of his kids on his desk are so out of date?  Fix it.  Print this coupon and head over to J.C. Penny’s for  a FREE portrait session and 1 FREE 8×10 sheet plus a few extra offers too.




6. America’s National Pastime, prices vary

If you’re sick of getting dad stuff, give him an experience instead.  Dad will love spending time outside with his family, rooting for his favorite team (or whatever local team PCS fate has chosen for your family).  Many MLB teams by military installations offer great military discounts to take the burn off the ticket price.  Or, check out your minor league team to get even more bang for your buck.  Minor league teams usually offer great military deals as well.



7. Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto, $16.73

Give Dad a break from reading ARs, AARs, and whatever else kind of alphabet soup is out there that takes up his time during the duty day and find him something fun to read.  My husband loves this [amazon_textlink asin=’1607747200′ text=’hardcover book on Franklin Barbecue’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’hermoneymoves-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’b0d41f06-d377-11e7-bce9-fbbf1b74520a’].  If smoking and grilling isn’t his thing, find a book about something that he loves or something you know he would love to know more about.






8. Custom Care Packages, $15 & up

Even if Dad is deployed or at school, you can still make him feel special by sending him a care package personalized with all his favorite things.  If you are like me, and don’t have a crafty bone in your body, help is available.  Fellow MilSpouse Rachel at Countdowns and Cupcakes, can craft you the perfect customized care package box to send to Dad.  Check out her website for care package inspiration and all the details on her customs orders.
