Thinking about what to get dad for Father’s Day? Wondering what to get for the guy who has everything? Looking to avoid cliched gifts like ties and coffee mugs?
You’re not alone.
Mike Bako, the Modern Man, Trends Editor of Daily National, father of two beautiful boys, has some ideas that can help.
With Father’s Day around the corner, many of us are scrambling to figure out the perfect gift for dad, without resorting to old standbys. This year, it’s time to get creative, and find something Dad will actually use and enjoy.
According to the National Retail Federation’s annual consumer survey spending on gifts for Father’s Day is expected to total $20 billion. That comes out to around $170 on average that people will spend honoring dad.
Spending patterns also reflect the sentimental nature of the holiday as consumers are prioritizing unique and meaningful gifts.
That means everyone will be looking for ways to manage and save their money, discover deals, and most importantly…shop smart.
Gift ideas that can help dad around the house:
This time of year, so many of us are prepping the outside of our homes and backyards for the warm summer months ahead. BBQ cleaned off, pool uncovered, grass mowed, but what about inside our homes and what about when the inevitable, unwanted, and pesky insects pay a visit.
If you find yourself in that situation or the dad in your life does, there is a great product from Zevo that can help and makes a great gift.
