With Father’s Day just five days away, you’ve still got some time to find Dad the perfect gift to show him how much he means to you. Every day, we seeks out the top deals that are actually worth your time on Amazon, and today’s best offers all make excellent gifts for papas, padres, pops, poppops, grandpas, and daddy-os. They’re also great if you’re buying for yourself, for an upcoming wedding, or any other event that calls for a gift for a grownup (sorry kids).
1. Under $150:The best non-Apple favorite true wireless earbuds
It’s no secret that Apple makes the best true wireless earbuds. But if you’re not a fan of the brand or just want a different style, Jabra makes the second best pair we’ve ever tested, and they’re back down to the lowest price ever, making them a hair more affordable than Apple’s wireless headphones. We love how comfortable they are, their long battery life, and the fact that they’re more water/sweat resistant than Apple’s AirPods ($159).
2. Under $100: The best Kindle e-reader
Just in time for Father’s Day, Amazon’s discounting a bunch of their devices, including our favorite Kindle. After putting all the Kindles to the test, the Paperwhite proved to be the best of the bunch. Its bright white display is perfect for reading in bed, at the beach, on the bus, or anywhere really.
Although more expensive models offer a few more bells and whistles like the Oasis’s waterproof design or the Voyage’s auto-brightness, the Paperwhite offers the best balance of features and affordability. Right now, you can save an extra $20 and pick up the e-reader for $99.99. It’s a great gift for dads, grads, moms, sisters, significant others, friends, family, bosses… Do you see where I’m going with this?
3. Under $75: Our favorite affordable bagless vacuum
Spring and summer tend to generate a lot more dust and debris around the house. From pollen blowing through open windows to dirt dragged in on shoes, it’s practically a full-time job to keep the floors clean. If you’re sick of sweeping or using an inefficient vacuum, why not upgrade?
Not only is this vacuum super affordable (especially with a sale price a few cents more than the lowest we’ve ever seen), but it’s also the best affordable bagless upright vacuum we’ve ever tried. It didn’t excel at any one thing, but it delivered an above average performance in every test we put it through.
4. Under $50: The most affordable Amazon Echo
Right now, you can get an Echo Dot for 20% off. While it’s not the best price we’ve ever seen, it’s still a great discount if you need a gift for a Father’s Day (or a birthday or a wedding or what have you). And even if you’ve wanted to try Alexa yourself or want to add her to a less-used room, this is an excellent price point to give it a shot without making too big an investment.
5. Under $50: Amazon’s streaming devices
Trying to convince Dad to cancel his expensive cable and switch to streaming services? Give him an offer he can’t refuse: A Fire TV that he can use to watch everything from Netflix and Amazon Video to ESPN and HBO. The Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD as well as the Fire TV Stick are both discounted right now. If Dad doesn’t have a 4K TV, get the Stick for $10 less.
