Tracking Down Gifts For Father's Day


By Jay Michaels

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Your dad or husband might be hard to buy a Father's Day gift for. Maybe he's just picky, or he already has everything.

So what are you going to buy him for Father's Day on Sunday? Take a look at these suggestions.

Kendall Lindley isn't sure what to buy. He says, "Half of the problem is you never know what he's going to buy for himself already. So he'll say, I really want this, but then you go to buy it and he's already got it. I don't know if other dads do that, that's been my personal experience. So it can be challenging to buy for him, but you always have the receipt."

But Mayra Alvarez already has a good idea. She says, "Because I know what he needs. If he needs it, I know he will really appreciate it if I got it for him."

Pellet stoves and grills are popular camping gear for outdoorsmen, along with high tech bear resistant coolers. So far, recreation equipment sales are better than last year.

Tim Triplett from Sportsman's Warehouse says, "It seems like we're getting a lot of water sports recreation also happening this time of year. We're selling more kayaks and canoes than we have in years past. So a lot more people doing the paddling sports this year than normal."

Many stores have displays with suggested gifts for Father's Day. That includes lawn mowers, trimmers, and even tractor mowers, if you really want to get fancy, and tools are sure to be a big winner, as well.

Cecelia Daniel, Store Manage for The Home Depot, says, "We have a great deal on Milwaukee, also on Ryobi tools as well, some great package deals. Just some great deals for anything they want to do, any hobby that they have."

Daniel points out there's no way you can lose if you get Dad a gift card.
