In case you forgot, Father's Day is less than a week away, which means if you haven't bought a gift yet, it's definitely time to get down to it.

The issue a lot of people face, however, is how to show Dad their love and appreciation without emptying their savings account. Fortunately, there are several ways to make fathers feel appreciated without putting your wallet on a diet. Some are specific, some are more creative, and some give you plenty of wiggle room to still make your dad happy.

Here are a few gift ideas for Father's Day this year:

1. For the grillmaster. Spice and sauce gift basket: less than $30

This takes a little bit of DIY initiative, which is just a bigger win for you as your dad appreciates it even more. Take a basket and fill it with any variety of spices and sauces. Whether your dad likes it hot or tangy, there are more than enough rubs and sauces available in stores and online to make a gift unlike anything else. Combine a flavorful selection of spices, with equally flavorful names, and it will wow your dad through to next year that will probably cost under $30.

2. For the golfer. SkyDroid Golf GPS App: $1.99

You read it right. This app is only $2. The problem with many golf GPS apps is that so many bells and whistles are included that the core of the app, the GPS, is often shoddy. The SkyDroid app, available on iPhone and Android despite the name, can give your dad easy access to maps detailing distance to the greens of more than 20,000 courses across the world. And if a course isn't available, he can go online and add the course map to the database, making it available to others. The app also features shot tracking, satellite imagery and a simple-to-use interface. Don't worry about shelling out more for an app that won't work as well. Give your dad the SkyDroid.
