Father's Day falls on June 21, which is next Sunday. The sales are here, deal-seekers, but you don't have a ton of time left to shop! Whether you need a gift for the dad or father figure in your life, or you just want to snag great deals, there are a number of events to check out.

Beware if you're shopping online, though: there's a chance anything you order right now likely won't arrive in time for Father's Day.

Read on to learn what to expect from Father's Day deals in 2020. We tell you when to watch for the first event and what discounts you'll likely see.

When Is Father's Day?

Father's Day is June 21 in 2020, which means you don't have too much time left to shop gifts for your dad. If you don't know what to buy the man who has everything, we're here to help.

When Do Father's Day Sales Start?

Expect the first official Father's Day events to show up before June 1. Last year, we saw the first sale on May 30 from Amazon. More sales should follow at a steady clip until the holiday arrives.

While you can count on Father's Day sales popping up in the last days of May, know that we saw the most during the first week of June last year — though the days leading up to Father's Day also had a significant number of sales. Roughly 20% of the deals during the first week of June and 23% of offers during week two earned our Staff Pick designation last year, as well. That means they ranked among our "best of the best" deals.

Shop Dapper Picks for Dad

Treat your well-dressed dad to sartorial selections that show off his impeccable style. Watch for Allen Edmonds to bring its Father's Day sale back; it could take up to $150 or $200 off select items. Additionally, shoppers will likely be able to snag free shipping on orders of $50.

Does Dad need new clothes or shoes? Then check out the Father's Day sales at Allen Edmonds, Kohl's, and Macy's.

Watch for online retailers like Amazon to discount men's wallets by up to 25% off, as well. So go ahead and gift your dad a better accessory that won't cause back pain or explode a la George Costanza. Looking for a new watch? Amazon will likely cut up to 40% off prices on a variety of models.

Furthermore, watch for Macy's to have a Father's Day sale again, with discounts between 25% and 30% off. Kohl's will also probably take at least 15% off. Watch for the retailer to have other discounts, as well, like $10 off $50.

Don't Expect a Ton of Tool Deals

If you're hoping to gift your DIY dad a new kind of tool for Father's Day this year, don't get too excited. We don't expect a ton of deals on tools in general, but even the ones we do see likely won't be great.

Last year, for instance, Home Depot's Father's Day sale took up to 35% off, but the main categories in the sale were bedding and bath, furniture, kitchenware, small kitchen appliances, and home decor. If you wait until closer to the holiday, Home Depot might offer another sale that takes up to 40% off a variety of items, including power tools. Even at that level, the savings won't be the best we've seen, though.

Keep an eye out for individual items to go on sale at stores like Walmart. Your auto enthusiast dad would probably be happy with a 10-piece car detailing gift pack, which went for $20 last year.

Gift Your Dad New Tech

If you'd love to get your dad a new gadget this year, keep an eye out for big sales from the likes of Best Buy and B&H Photo Video. The former won't necessarily have a blanket discount amount, but you can expect to see prices cut on laptops, smartphones, smart tech, and TVs. Meanwhile, B&H Photo Video will likely have a mix of specials where it takes up to $600 off cameras, laptops, audio equipment, and other electronics.

Think Outside the (Tool)Box With Father's Day Deals

Give your dad a nontraditional present to celebrate Father's Day this year. Consider treating him to a new massage chair — last year, Home Depot knocked 40% off Titan massage chairs. Does your dad love backyard grilling? Check out Omaha Steaks, and see about sending him a selection of prime meats that he can enjoy grilling to perfection. Last year, the company offered a 44-piece box boasting a variety of burgers, sausages, and brats for around $83.

If all that fails, consider gifting your dad a new experience over yet another wrench. Watch for Groupon to offer a Father's Day sale that takes an extra 25% off local deals.
