What to Expect From Father's Day Sales in 2022

Tools for As Little As $3

Tools are one of the quintessential Father's Day gifts, and there'll be no shortage of deals from retailers like Home Depot, Lowe's, and Northern Tool. For instance, last year Northern Tool offered select hand tools for as little as $3 each. And if you shop early, you could save big at the other two home improvement retailers.

Order grilling packages that are up to 50% off from retailers like Omaha Steaks, or get gift baskets for as little as $20 each.

For example, Home Depot could take hundreds off big-ticket items like lawn mowers, tools, and grills, while Lowe's could cut up to 30% off select tools. Since Amazon sells practically everything, also watch for tool deals from them as Father's Day grows closer.

Hundreds Off on Tech

Tech is another big category for Father's Day gifts, and the sales will reflect that. Expect Best Buy to have plenty of discounted options, including big-ticket items like laptops and TVs. But also consider tech accessories, along with video games, movies, and music, to appeal to your dad's favorite hobbies.

Watch for tech savings at stores like Adorama and B&H Photo Video, too. Last year, the latter offered up to $500 off Panasonic cameras and lenses, perfect for dads who are shutterbugs. If you want to upgrade your dad's laptop, be sure to check out Lenovo, as they could offer an extra 10% off select items again this year.

Gourmet Goodies at 50% Off

For the foodie dad, be on the lookout for a variety of tasty sales to take advantage of, including ones featuring discounted gift baskets. In 2021, Sam's Club offered an Alder Creek gift basket for only $20, which included cookies, trail mix, root beer, and a steakhouse burger blend.

Up to 88% Off Gear for the Great Outdoors

Are you buying for an outdoorsy dad? Know that there'll be plenty of deals to shop, whether he prefers camping, hiking, biking, fishing, or another activity involving the great outdoors. In 2021, Sierra took up to 88% off during its clearance sale, which included apparel, home items, and camping gear, among other products. Plus, orders over $75 earned free shipping via a coupon code, so it was a good time to replace gear or stock up for the summer ahead.

Additionally, retailers like Moosejaw could offer brand-specific discounts. Last year, it took up to 50% off The North Face items and provided free shipping on orders of $49.

If all else fails, think outside the box! Plenty of retailers will be offering Father's Day sales in 2022, so look for something you know your dad will like.

Watch for sites like EyeBuyDirect to have "buy one, get one free" deals, for example. Or see what Amazon has to offer — last year it had a 4-month subscription of Audible Premium Plus for $28, a perfect option for dads who love to read. Gift dad a new scent by shopping stores like Nordstrom Rack, which could offer a 4-piece Kenneth Cole New York cologne set for $25 again, or Kohl's, which could take up to 50% off a variety of cologne again in 2022.

Is your dad into renovating? Consider picking up new furniture at Target, as they could could take 25% off a number of different pieces, including ottomans, tables, stools, desks, and accent chairs.
