When all else fails, hit up your nearest gift card rack. Like subscription boxes, there's pretty much something for everyone on the gift card rack.

Father’s Day is Sunday, and while it certainly won’t look like your typical Father’s Day, thanks to the coronavirus crisis, that doesn’t mean people aren’t going to be honoring dad on his big day.

A new RetailMeNot poll finds:

  • 69% of Americans plan to make a Father’s Day purchase this year, regardless of COVID-19 limitations.
  • The average shopper plans to spend $89 on dad.
  • The average man will spend $114, and the average woman will spend $62.
  • As for the top gifts dad wants this year:
    • 40% want a gift card
    • 32% would like dinner from a restaurant
    • 27% would like an at-home prepared meal
    • 27% prefer clothing
    • 18% would like an alcohol purchase

Now, with Father’s Day only a few days away, it may be too late to order him a gift online, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip the gift this year. Several stores are open for curbside pickup, and many are offering deals. For example,

  • Dick’s Sporting Goods is offering 50% of apparel, footwear, golf equipment and more.
  • DoorDash is offering $15 off and free delivery for dinner with dad.
  • Golf Galaxy is offering 50% of Father’s Day deals.
