DealNews offers suggestions for finding deals in categories that often appeal to dads. They include:
Tools: Look for items under $10 and save up to 70%
Last year DealNews saw deals on hand tool sets, with some markdowns as high as 70 percent off. Many tools also were available for $10 or less individually, so you could put together a package of a shovel, wrench, flashlight, and pruner for under $40. Sears, Home Depot, True Value, Amazon, and Ace Hardware all had good sales last year.
Electronics: Check for bundle deals
Deals can range from speakers and headphones to phones and TVs. Bundles that include store gift cards can offer savings, so be sure to check out sellers such as Dell and Newegg – which often include credits in their offerings.
