According to the Deals2Buy Father's Day survey, dad is difficult to shop for. Of those surveyed who have their father in their life, more than half (56%) seek out the help of others when deciding on a gift to buy him: of those, 36% ask Dad what he wants and 20% ask other people what Dad might want. An additional 17% take the easy route and buy the same kind of gift they've purchased for Dad in the past!

Dads tend to receive more appreciation on their birthdays. In fact 77% of consumers who said they plan to buy a Father's Day gift claim to spend more money on his birthday than on Father's Day. Worse for Dad, 11% of those who have their father in their life report that they never buy their Dad a gift for Father's Day.

So what gifts are people planning to buy for Dad this year? Clothing (20%), outdoor accessories such as a grill (16%), and tickets to an event such as a game or concert (9%) ranked among the most popular gift categories for respondents who plan to purchase a gift for their father.

Among respondents who currently have Dad in their life, many describe him as either a "DIY guy" (26%), "outdoorsy" (25%) or a "sports fan" (23%).

"No matter the type of Dad, he will likely appreciate any effort that shows gratitude for all that he does," says Mike Spankie, senior merchandising manager of Deals2Buy.com. "But he's sure to be proud if you find the perfect gift and take advantage of a deal to save money on the purchase."

Consumers can visit Deals2Buy.com year-round for discounts on a variety of products and services, but they should act now to take advantage of the Father's Day deals below.

Survey Methodology:

The Father's Day Survey was conducted between May 30 and June 2, 2013, among 1,000 U.S. residents ages 18 and over, using an email invitation and an online survey.  

Results of any sample are subject to sampling variation. The magnitude of the variation is measurable and is affected by the number of interviews and the level of the percentages expressing the results. 

In this particular study, the chances are 95 in 100 that a survey result does not vary, plus or minus, by more than 3.1 percentage points from the result that would be obtained if interviews had been conducted with all persons in the universe represented by the sample. The margin of error for any subgroups will be slightly higher.
