Planning to get another tie for dad for Father’s Day? Avoid generic gifts this year and be creative to surprise dad. Look for gifts in unlikely places that may offer more affordable options than the mall.

One such option is drugstores which can offer surprisingly thoughtful, personalized gifts. Take gift baskets – though they have a reputation for being female-focused, it’s actually easy to pair relevant products to match Dad’s interests. It’s like one-stop-shopping at the drugstore since there are such a variety of items offered.

CVS is a great example. The store offers Father’s Day cards and personalized photo gifts, and also carries tons of products that would be perfect for a Father’s Day gift basket. Here’s a guide for creating a gift basket for the Foodie Dad, Stylish Dad, and Sports/Fitness Dad using items from CVS.
