The best Father's Day gifts 2021

If you're unsure of what to buy, trust the data. The National Retail Federation released its annual Father's Day survey, which highlights purchasing trends, consumer behavior, and popular categories. The survey was conducted in May 2021, and participants were U.S. adults 18 and older. 

The top gift categories span personal care, home, gardening, and kitchen. Most shoppers plan to purchase greeting cards, clothing, and special outings in response to waning coronavirus restrictions. This year, findings also signal that shoppers want to splurge more than ever on dad. Current data reveals they plan to spend a record high of $174 on Father's Day gifts, or $26 more than last year.
