Even if dad says he doesn't want anything, you're probably still getting him something. Father's Day is June 16, which means it's the one day a year where you get to pamper your dad and he can't say anything about it.
Over 75% of people in the U.S. are planning on celebrating their dads with gifts, according to a survey by National Retail Federation. Americans are expected to reach $16 billion in spending for dad's big day. Each person is expected to spend an average of $138.97, a big increase from the $90 average in 2009.
The National Retail Federation also looked at what people were planning on buying for dad. The most expensive category was a special outing, accounting for $3.3 billion of Father's Day spending. In terms of the most popular option, 61.7% of people were planning on getting their dad a greeting card.
Books and CDs, gift cards and clothing were also popular gift options, while automotive accessories was the least popular, falling right behind sporting goods. Tools and appliances, electronics and personal care items rounded out the middle.
