11 Frugal Gifts Perfect For A No Frills Dad

Break through his wall of frugality and see him secretly rejoice with these personal, amazing gifts that don’t go overboard!

Frugal dads are the most difficult people to buy gifts for. We like to show our love symbolized with a little gift, but some dads make it seem like it’s not their thing to receive gifts.

We say that’s not true. We’ve trawled through the internet to find gifts that can be special but are clearly not too over top on price. The best compromise – you get to give back and he’s happy with a simple yet meaningful gift (psst – that’s why the personalized wallet is our go-to!).

#2 We Go To Bo by Larry Baum

We Go To Bo by Larry Baum
When I was teaching my children to read, I thought it would be easier for them to learn short words than long words, so I looked for books with only short words. But I had trouble finding them (I mean the books, not the words!). So I wrote a story with words no longer than two letters, hoping that it can help other children learn reading more easily. I tried to include characters, action, and humor, which was challenging with a vocabulary limited to 2-letter words! I wanted kids around the world to have it, so I hired an illustrator and self-published the paperback book

Later, teachers gave me suggestions on phonics and easy sounds for learning to read, and I incorporated those in a new two-letter word book and accompanied it with a book of three-letter words, and even a book of only one-letter “words.” The goal is to make it easier for children to read their very first book on their own, and gain confidence so that they can read more at a younger age.
