I don’t think it’s necessary to get him anything…especially if you aren’t close with him.

We didn’t gift anything to my mom or in-laws..just seemed like an unnecessary thing (one helped and one didn’t..and we are close to them). Not a big deal.

Do you need to give him a gift at all? It sounds like he’s not a very big part of your life, and I don’t think you’re required to reward that with a present. However, if you still feel it’s necessary, maybe something like a watch? Not engraved or anything, just a nice little something.

You could give him a generic-but-inexpensive gift if you feel the need to give him something. There are “Dad” pocket watches on Amazon and Etsy for under $10 with shipping. My Fiance actually picked one of them for his dad, even though we’d budgeted more, because his dad “would appreciate the sentiment but never use the gift.” Knowing his dad, that’s almost certainly true. It doesn’t look cheesy or cheap, unless you’re used to the kind that cost hundreds of dollars.
