Despite the economic downturn and retail sales plummeting, this Father ’s Day it looks like dads are going from handyman to dandyman, as sales of pampering services and related products are expected to increase 35.7 percent, according to industry research firm IBISWorld

Although pampering services only accounts for a small portion of total Father’s Day spending on the nation’s 66.3 million dads as reported by the U.S. Census Bureau, pampering is emerging as this holiday’s fastest growing gift category with consumers expected to spend $190 million compared to $140 million in 2008.

“Traditional Father’s Day gifts, such as tools and electronics are declining this year while spa services, personal care products, and greeting cards are increasing,” explained Toon van Beeck, senior analyst with IBISWorld.  “It seems that ‘New Age’ dads are this year’s fad.”   Mr. van Beeck added, “According the U.S. Census Bureau, there are an estimated 66.3 million fathers in the nation today which demonstrates the impact spending on Father’s Day has on the U.S. economy.”

Dad is a pretty special guy, and I don’t know about you, but I always struggle finding a great gift.  After some research, I finally found the perfect Father’s Day gifts under $50:

For Fitness Dads:  If your dad is into exercising, he’ll run circles for Advanced Sweatproof Athletic Shirts ($25) from Kleinert’s.  This shirt improves circulation and hydration to keep him dry during his workouts. 

For Dads-On-The-Go:  If your dad travels a lot he’ll be thrilled to receive a Murad Man Carry-On shave kit ($35).  This gift is TSA approved, so he won’t have to fuss with airline regulations and can still have a clean shave while he’s away from home. 

For the Outdoors Dads:  If your dad is good with his hands, he’ll love a Swiss Army Climber pocket knife ($35) – I mean what man doesn’t like a knife, right?

For Grill-Master-Dads:  If your dad is proud of his grilling skills, he’ll savor a Monogram Steak Branding Iron ($40).  Now every guest at his BBQ will know just who grilled their steak to perfection!

For Tech-Savvy-Dads:  These guys are usually hard to shop for because they already have every new gadget under the sun.   If your dad loves technology he’ll blow a gasket for a Laptop Essentials Kit ($50) from BrookStone.  I’ve never heard a man not like this gift because it has six tools that make out-of-office laptop use so convenient. 

Happy Father’s Day!
