Father’s Day gifts that he’ll actually like (and use)

Father’s day is just around the corner, so we’ve scouted out the best gift ideas…

Gifts For Him

Struggling to buy a gift this Father’s day? Well have no fear. We’ve rounded up the best Father’s day gifts to get your hands on. You’d think by now we would know what to get and would’ve made some notes from these stylish Christmas gifts for him or the ultimate men’s grooming gift guide – but it gets harder every year.

Father’s Day is a celebration honoring fathers and it gives us a chance every year to show our appreciation for the dads in our lives. And we all want to do our best to show just how much we really love them. Notoriously hard to shop for, dad’s big day is always a bit of struggle. But we’re here with a little help.

We know how important the first man in our life is to us, and sometimes nothing can seem good enough for our lovely dads. But to them it’s the thought that counts and we’ve put all the thought in for you. Whether he’s a sporty dad, more of a clean-cut type, a big ol’bearded guy or maybe he’s just become a father for the first time and could do with being spoiled, there’s something for everyone.

They taught us how to swim and how to ride a bike, and much to our mortification, probably had a good old talking to with our very first boyfriend. But we love them no matter what, and what better way to show it than to buy them a divine tie, a slick pair of shoes or a snazzy travel kit. From old school aviators’ to top of the range aftershaves, we’ve got it covered. Whether you want to splurge or save there’s lots of choices in our epic selection of Father’s day gifts.

Whatever your budget have a look at our edit of the best Father’s day gifts and be sure to take note to ensure he will have a huge grin on his face come Sunday!

ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE:

Amazon just announced its best-selling tech gifts of the holidays – and they’re all still on sale

Amazon Holiday Best Sellers List

Amazon on Wednesday announced that this past holiday shopping season was its most successful season ever, with more items ordered worldwide than ever before. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering how good the deals were this year across all of the most popular categories on Amazon’s site. Amazon didn’t share any specific numbers as far as sales go, and that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise since the company never shares specific sales volumes. It did announce some of its best-selling products across various categories though, and we’ve got some awesome news: Amazon’s best-selling products from this past holiday shopping season are still on sale right now.

Fire TV and Echo devices were popular this year, as they have been every year. Amazon also listed best-sellers from other categories like toys, where products like the L.O.L. Surprise! Glam Glitter Series Doll with 7 Surprises and Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm Blaster topped the charts. In the ever popular electronics category, six items topped the list and it just so happens that they’re all still on sale!

The Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones were top-sellers this year, and they’re still available right now for $ 50 off, which is the same exact deal we saw on Black Friday and during Cyber Week. Samsung’s UN65NU8000FXZA Flat 65″ 4K UHD 8 Series Smart LED TV is also still on sale for more than $ 500 off, and Apple’s Space Gray iPad with 32GB of storage is still discounted as well, though it’s not as deep as it was during Cyber Week.

How to Return Unwanted Gifts to Amazon

Lots of holiday gifts came from Amazon, this year. And there will be plenty of returns as well.

Whereas if you received an unwanted item from a physical store in your area you’re able to return it in person, Amazon’s return policy is a little bit different, especially if you’re the gift recipient making the return rather than the buyer.

In order for items to be returned, they will need to be marked as a gift at the time of purchase. Amazon said the type of refund you’re able to get for the item will depend on how it was purchased and how it’s returned.

Gift recipients also aren’t eligible for exchanges or instant refunds.

Before you can send an item back you first need to start a gift return on Amazon’s website. For buyers that happens on the “Orders” page within Amazon. For gift recipients, you can start that process here.

You will also need the order number for your gift. You can find that on the left side of your packing slip. If you don’t have it you’ll need to contact Amazon to try and look it up.

With the order number, you’ll be able to pull up everything that was purchased in that particular order. You can select the item you don’t want from the list and then select how you’d like to send your item back (via mail or Amazon locker). For shipped returns, you’ll get a printable return label to throw on the box.

Once your return is received and processed by Amazon the person who did the return will receive a credit to their Amazon account in the form of a gift card for the amount of the item.
