Whether he's been your personal chauffeur, football coach, or shoulder to cry on, your dad deserves something special to let him know how much you care. Luckily, Father's Day is just around the corner on June 18, giving you an excuse to shower Pop in gifts.

Because no dad wants you to go broke buying gifts, we've combed through the DealNews archives to tell you what to expect from the very best Father's Day deals.

Treat Him to a New TV

Although our Editor's Choice category most frequently featured megasites Amazon and eBay during last year's Father's Day season, we also saw a high number of top-value deals from Dell Home.

And Dell's best deals were often TVs to suit all budgets. Most came bundled with hefty store gift cards worth up to $400; why not get a gift for yourself while shopping for Dad? Among the top offers was a 32" 1080p HDTV that came with a $100 Dell gift card and cost just $200.

Dell was not the only shop for these impressive deals. Walmart hosted the second-highest number of top-rated TV offers. Although the store didn't include any gift cards, you could shop refurbished models to get an amazing deal. For example, we saw a refurbished Vizio Razor 70" Smart TV for $900.

Give the Gift of Games

If your dad races you to the console in his spare time, you can gift him some gamer gear this year. Once again, Dell Home was the place to look in 2016. The store has offered some impressive video game deals in the run-up to Father's Day previously, but it particularly impressed last year. Many popular titles fell to all-time price lows and came with gift cards worth up to $25.

Best Buy also offered some of the most popular gaming deals of the season, so we recommend you pay close attention to the store's daily deal section for low prices on this year's big titles.

Electronics titan Newegg is another must-stop if you're shopping for a game-crazy papa. For three Father's Day seasons running, it's been one of the top stores for Editor's Choice deals. Expect to see low prices on PC peripherals and headphones — both great options for any computer gamers on your Father's Day gift list.

Great Outdoors, Greater Savings

With the day falling at the start of the summer months, we always see top offers on all things outdoors. If your dad is into hiking, fishing, or hunting, you're in luck — last year, we listed a number of Editor's Choice-worthy tent and camping accessory offers from REI Garage, thanks to a cost-cutting coupon that knocked 25% off one item.

In 2015, Walmart's clearance section boasted some impressive lows on sleeping bags, and dropped the price of a very popular camping chair to just $5. REI's main store cut 15% off tents, too, so it's worth checking out this year on behalf of your adventure-loving dad.
