With Father's Day coming up on Sunday, the time you have to shop for a gift for Dad is growing short.
On dealnews.com, analysts have searched the archives to find out which Father's Day gifts offered the best savings last year so that you can be on the lookout for great bargains this year. Here are their suggestions:
If your dad is a handy man, the weeks leading up Father's Day are a great time to pick up some new tools. You’ve missed the first week of June, which had the best deals last year. However, you may still be able to find bargains at stores such as Sears, Home Depot, and Lowe's.
Summer clearance promotions are being offered by merchants such as Lands' End, J. Crew, Express, and Last Call by Neiman Marcus. Although sizes and stock are often limited in clearance sales, you may still be able to buy brand-name clothes for your dad.
This June is also a great time to find a new HDTV, but there are some lessons to be learned from last year's Father's Day sales. Many of the bargains TVs dealnews.com saw last year were from lesser-known brands. So if your dad has his heart set on a brand-name HDTV, he may need to wait.
However, if your dad already has a big screen TV, consider buying audio components for his home theater setup. Last year, dealnews.com saw great bargains on brands such as Pioneer, Sony, and Harman Chardon from merchants including World Wide Stereo, TigerDirect, and Fry's Electronics.
