Let’s cut to the chase: Father’s Day is quickly approaching, and you still need to find the father in your life a gift. But as we all know, dads are routinely fussy when it comes to finding a gift they’ll love and use.
From versatile multi-tools to handy pocket knives, most of our Father’s Day offerings end up in the catchall kitchen junk drawer, destined for a life of neglect. That’s why we hit the gear archives, leaving no stone unturned on our quest to find the best outdoor gifts for dad. And to keep your wallet content, we made sure each pick is under $50. Below, 25 items we think you’d be wise to jump on now, before you settle for another novelty bottle opener. And remember, just because you’re on a budget, it doesn’t mean you have to get something cheap.
