Father’s Day continues to be a cornerstone shopping holiday in the U.S. Before we name the #1 Single Best Father’s Day Gift, let’s frame the context through the lens of this 2019 NRF (National Retail Federation) study of Father’s Day seasonal trends. Whether a gift, reward or incentive is warranted due to sales, marketing, loyalty, achievements, gamification — or any other business gift or corporate gifting reason, the NRF data is substantial and noteworthy.

  • 2019 Father’s Day spending is expected to reach an all time high of $16 billion.
  • 28% of shoppers indicated they always or very often look to retailers for inspiration when purchasing gifts for the Dad’s in their lives.
  • The old favorites for Dad remain today, including dining experiences.
  • In 2019, more than 29 percent of shoppers will make Father’s Day purchases online
