If you’ve ever had that panicky moment when you spent way too much money because you had no idea what you were shopping for, then you’ve probably tried to buy a Father’s Day gift.

Father’s Day shopping is hard, y’all, and it’s no wonder that Father’s Day spending has climbed to $12.7 billion, as of last year. Most of us are freaking out and buying Dad all the clichéd and often expensive Father’s Day stuff (like ties, tools and golf lessons) because we don’t know what to get him again for the 10th year in a row.

If this Father’s Day impulse-buying hysteria sounds familiar, we’re here to help. We’ve put together a full collection of some of our favorite out-of-the-tie-box gifts that are sure to make the main man in your life feel extra special this year. Even better, most of the gifts on this list are affordable (though we've thrown in a few fun splurges too).
