Next-Level Father's Day Gifts Under $100 Your Favorite Dad Will Actually Use

If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, SheKnows may receive an affiliate commission.

Remember when we were kids? Father’s Day gifts were…maybe the least practical gifts of them all. I remember buying my father bright neon shirts emblazoned with the words “World’s Best Dad.” Did he ever wear them? Perhaps not? I can’t remember. One year, though, I did make him a dried macaroni frame. Also super practical, right? Well, now that you’re helping your own kid pick out a sweet Dad’s Day gift, maybe you’re looking for something a little more modern and actually useful — and that won’t just sit there and add clutter to your already-filled-with-toys Kid House. We feel that.

The shorts themselves are made of moisture-wicking, itch-resistant cotton with four-way stretch, and they’re as soft as a baby’s butt. The pouch underwear comes in a slew of cool solids as well as fun patterns and designs, like The Front Nine, a golf-themed version that will, ironically, guarantee no swinging balls.
