Don’t go for the boring necktie, lawnmower or tool kit. Show your appreciation for your Dad this Father’s Day with a unique gift, even if he says, “Don’t get me anything.”
Research by the National Retail Federation reported consumers splurge far less on Dad than they do Mom, with $12.5 billion in spending for Father’s Day compared to $19.9 billion for Mother’s Day. The reasons vary from a lack of marketing, to budgeting, to society’s view on fathers, but that doesn’t mean you should forget a gift for Dad.
So whether you’re planning to spend under $20 or nearly six figures on your father, here are some gift ideas for this Father’s Day for all types of Dads.
