Dads and Grads Gift Ideas

Dads and Grads Gift Ideas

The month of June on my calendar consists of Father’s Day, graduation parties and weddings. It’s a busy, busy, time of year. Besides the fact that I have to stock up on gifts for all of these monumental occasions I need to afford to give gifts. In a perfect world I’d visit my money tree, pluck some cash and go shopping but life doesn’t really work like this. Boy I wish it did. Luckily, I have eBay to keep me afloat for extra cash so that I can afford the month of June!

Selling on eBay

Step one for me this month has been to list items and make some extra cash. Which I’ve been successful at and today sold an electric razor I bought my husband years ago. It sold for over $90 and had dozens of bids.  I was able to clean out my closet and find some nice looking shoes that I purchased on sale and “had to have” but really I never wear. Again, sold and my wallet has expanded so I’m able to start my shopping after I list a few more items. Next up is listing a few extra computer bags I have!

Tip:  Sell Father Day related gifts like electronics, tools and razors in May targeting Father’s Day shoppers!

Win Dad a Father’s Day Gift

I love giving my husband and father gifts but I really like to win them and not spend a penny! They don’t need to know! Beginning May 28 through Father’s Day if you post a photo of dad on the eBay Facebook page you could win one of their daily prizes. So dig out the old photos and get ready to start posting!

Tip:  Ask dad what he wants this Father’s Day and he might actually tell you this year! Don’t give up asking, you never know.

So what tips do you have for surviving the month of June to not go broke with all of the gift giving? What do you want to give dad this year?

  •  Unlike others, I am not that close with my father. So asking him directly what he wants for the past Father’s Day was truly out of my plan. Instead, I just bought him a gift which he said he liked but I never saw him touch it again. I feel a bit sad but honestly it’s also my bad for not asking and knowing what he’d like.
