Father’s Day is tomorrow, and you still haven’t done anything? It’s OK, neither have I (sorry, Dad). We may have had the best of intentions and just let the holiday slip through the cracks, or maybe we just forgot—hey, it happens.
More: The 7 best deals you can find online this weekend
The good news is, whether you’re going to see Dad tomorrow or it’ll be a FaceTime or phone call, you can still get him a great gift that’ll make it easier to convince him you didn’t wait til the las minute. But let’s be real, your pops just wants to talk to you and hear how you’re doing anyway. The gift doesn’t matter nearly as much as the sentiment to most dads, but if you want to give him something thoughtful tomorrow, here are the best sales and deals you can get online in time for Father’s Day (or maybe a day or two late).
For the book-loving dad: A new Kindle
If Dad won’t stop talking about his WWII non-fiction, then he’ll definitely appreciate a Kindle. Amazon just lowered the price of the Kindle Paperwhite to $100 (originally $130), the Kindle Oasis to $200 (originally $250), and the standard Kindle to $70 (originally $90). All three are fantastic deals, as these best-selling e-readers are not on sale all that often, especially at these prices. And you may qualify for Amazon’s new free one-day shipping if you’re a Prime member.
When it comes to features, the Paperwhite and Oasis have a fair amount of overlap, like a glare-free display, waterproof body, 300-ppi resolution, and extra long battery life so that they can last for weeks on a single charge. While the basic Kindle—which was newly released in 2019—doesn’t boast these same qualities (its display is 167 ppi, for example), it was re-designed with an adjustable front light (finally!) to make reading easier any time of the day. Choosing a kindle that fits your needs is easy and at these prices, you can’t go wrong one way or another.
- Get the Kindle Paperwhite on Amazon for $99.99 (Save $30)
- Get the Kindle Oasis on Amazon for $199.99 (Save $50)
- Get the All-New Kindle on Amazon for $69.99 (Save $20)
For the movie-loving dad: A new soundbar
A soundbar is a great gift for the dads out there who are constantly turning up the volume of the TV just to hear the latest game. But a soundbar should makes things a little clearer. Right now, you can grab the Polk Audio Signa S2, which is the best soundbar under $200 we’ve ever tested, for only $149 on Amazon and its lowest price. It comes with built-in Bluetooth, three “Clear Voice” settings, and different modes for movies, music, and night audio, so Dad can use it for TV and listening to his favorite smooth jazz. If you’re a Prime member, you may qualify for free one-day shipping, but this is also a gift Dad won’t mind waiting a little longer to get.
Get the Polk Audio Signa S2 at Amazon for $149 (Save $50.95)
For the techie dad: A new Apple Watch
If Dad’s into tech or just glued to his phone, an Apple Watch might be the best choice this Father’s Day. And you don’t have to pay full price to get one, either. Right now, Walmart is running a special where you can get an Apple Watch, starting at $199 for the Series 3 GPS 38mm with Sport Band, a full $80 off the regular price.
Apple isn’t running any sort of sale on Watches either, so right now Walmart is the best place to get your pops a new wrist piece that does so much more than tell the time. He can use it to monitor his heart rate, answer texts, control his music and smart home gadgets, and more. This one will arrive a day late if you can’t get in-store pickup, so we’d recommend grabbing a card at least for Dad’s big day.
Save $80 on an Apple Watch from Walmart (Starting at $199)
For the DIY dad: New power tools
As stereotypical as it may be to shop for tools, if Dad’s actually into DIY, or home renovation projects, you can take advantage of Home Depot’s Father’s Day promotions and get free same-day pickup in stores so you have time to wrap them too. They’re discounting major brands like Makita, Ryobi, and Milwaukee as much as 40% so you can give the gift of a workshop upgrade. For instance, if your father swears by Makita, who makes our favorite cordless drill, you’d definitely be the favorite child if you picked up this two-pack of 18V battery packs so he can work for hours on end without having to stop and recharge his tools. The set is only $99, down from $159.

For the fit dad: A new fitness tracker
With Father’s Day less that a week away, you’ve still got some time to find the perfect gift for dad. If you want to avoid getting something lame or last-minute, you’ll be glad to know there are a few deals you can take advantage right now, like Fitbit’s Father’s Day sale. Today is the last day they’re offering discounts on the Versa ($20 off), Charge 3 ($30 off), and Ionic ($50 off), and they offer free 5-7-day delivery, or you can use the money you save to upgrade to 2-day or 1-day shipping for $10 or $20, respectively.
The Charge 3 is our top choice, as it’s the best fitness tracker we’ve ever tested. It offers heart rate monitoring, text, call, and calendar notifications, silent alarms, and a super long battery life of 7+ days. We’d actually suggest you steer clear of the Ionic, as our tester said the big, bulky size made it very uncomfortable to wear. But if your dad has giant wrists or arms, maybe he’ll love it. Who knows!

For the neat-freak dad: A robot vacuum to do your chores
If your father loves to keep a clean home, give him some help that won’t require either of you to lift a finger. The Eufy RoboVac 11S MAX, the upgraded model of our favorite affordable robot vacuum, is on sale right now for an impressive low price. We’re currently testing it, and like most Eufy vacuums, it’s impressing us so far. This one’s special because it has a 100-minute battery life and a super slim design as well as better suction than previous models. Dad will love being able to keep the house tidier between deep cleaning sessions without having to actually do any work.
Get the Eufy RoboVac 11S MAX on Amazon for $199.99 (Save $70)
