Though it may feel like you just conquered Mother’s Day gifting this year, here’s a reminder that another important holiday, Father’s Day, is just around the corner — and will probably catch up on you sooner than you’d expect.

Setting a spending limit is a good way to make sure you don’t blow your 2018 personal budget by mid-year, and we think $100 is reasonable enough for Father’s Day. There are many under-$100 gifts that you can gift Dad and feel good about, whether he’s a complete pro or utter disaster at cooking, style, grooming, or joke delivery.

If you’re on a tighter budget, you can also shop 40 thoughtful Father’s Day gifts under $50 here.
