This weekend is all about dad: you have a few more days to figure out what you’ll get him for Father’s Day on June 17. Majority of Americans are celebrating according to the National Retail Federation: 77 percent will do something for dear ol’ dad.

We checked in with the couponing website, RetailMeNot, for some suggestions on what to get dad.

“You have to put on your thinking cap, think, what doesn't he have that he might like, that he might use, that he might enjoy?” said Sara Skirboll, shopping and trends expert at Retail Me Not.

The couponing website lays out a few ideas under $50:

A hardcover photo book full of memories.

A membership to a monthly mail-order craft beer club.

Or some fun new tech, like the Alexa Echo Dot.

“Dad wants a nice dinner out, he wants food, he wants to not have to worry about it. He also wants gift cards, he's really interested in tech, those are the top three things dad says he wants this year,” Skirboll said.

For a personal touch, spend less than $10 and get creative.

“Like do-it-yourself coupon books, you can create something really cute if you have kids at home, this entitles dad to I’ll make your coffee, get breakfast, whatever that looks like,” she said.

There are a handful of restaurants offering deals and freebies for Father’s Day. Please click here to learn more.
