An estimated 75% of Americans plan to celebrate Father’s Day. And whether that is with the father figure in your life, guardian, or grandparent, show them some love with a thoughtful gift. Spending last year reached an impressive $17 billion, with the average spending hitting $148.58. This year, we can expect to see a similar pattern.

So, how are consumers shopping for dad? According to a survey released by the National Retail Federation, the top three gifting categories include home/ garden, tools/ appliances, and personal care. We even touch on a few other categories that dads are sure to love! Find all of these trendy items from major retailers at a discount right here on B-Stock. Here are this year’s top picks for Father’s Day.

Top Father’s Day Categories

Personal Care

Personal care is the top category for gift-giving this year — dads need to take care of themselves too! Join the 25% of consumers shopping for personal care this Father’s Day.  Look out for grooming kits, colognes, beard care and oils, electric razors and trimmers, soaps, and even wellness supplements! Keep personal care items on hand so dads can get some TLC this year. Shop the best in overstock merchandise from brands like Dove, Degree, and AXE on Unilever Liquidation Auctions, RB Health Liquidation Auctions, and B-Stock Supply.

Outdoor/ Sporting Goods

Good weather lies ahead of us! For the dads who are gym-goers, golfers, or runners, you can’t go wrong with sporting goods. And oftentimes outdoor equipment and sporting goods can be fun for the whole family! Items like grills, bikes, hiking gear, or traditional sporting goods like basketballs and footballs are sure to be winners this Father’s Day. Visit marketplaces like Target Auctions Liquidation, Walmart Liquidation Auctions, and Sam’s Club Liquidations for discounted deals.

Home Improvement

Some dads love a good project! For the DIY-enthusiast or designated fixer-upper of the household, home improvement inventory will be much appreciated. Make sure you have tools, small appliances, kitchen & bath, and other hardware readily available. That way, dads can upgrade their man cave, garages, backyards, front yards, and more. Top marketplaces like Signature Hardware Liquidation Auctions, The Home Depot Liquidation Auctions, and Lowe’s Liquidation should be your go-to.


What dad doesn’t love a good deal? It might be a cliché, but it’s true. Deeply discounted big-ticket items like washers and dryers or new refrigerators are always a huge hit. Don’t forget the smaller appliances like high-end coffee or espresso makers and top-of-the-line blenders from brands like Nutribullet and Nespresso make great gifts for dad as well. Best Buy Liquidation Auctions, GE Appliances Liquidation Auctions, and Sears Overstock Auctions are the way to go for this category.

Consumer Electronics

It’s hard to find a dad that doesn’t like the latest tech gadgets. And tech geek or not, there are a few items you can’t go wrong with. TVs, smart assistants, speakers, gaming consoles, headphones, and smartwatches all fall into consumer electronics. Make the most of Father’s Day sourcing and stock up on marketplaces like GameStop Wholesale, Dell Outlet Auctions, and BJ’s Liquidation Auctions.

Home Office

Home office upgrades like computers, tablets, monitors, keyboards, mouses, and even furniture can make worthwhile gifts this Father’s Day. Many are working from home on a semi-permanent basis now and could use a spruce. Give shoppers what they’re looking for by carrying the home office essentials from Amazon Liquidation Auctions, Office Depot Liquidation Auctions, and Wayfair Liquidation Auctions.


We’ve all done it. When you don’t know what gift to give dad, apparel is usually the safest bet. For example, you can go with formal wear like shoes, dress shirts, neckties, and slacks. Or, causal staples like hats, jeans, and athletic gear from marketplaces like Department Store Auctions, Next Fashion Auctions, and Target Auctions Liquidation.


Lastly, mobile. A category all on its own. Dad’s love their cell phones and what better way to prepare than purchasing new and used smartphones from brands like Apple, Samsung, and Google. Visit B-Stock marketplaces like Select Mobile Auctions, B-Stock Supply, and Early Upgrade Auctions to keep dads strapped with the latest phones and devices.

Whatever inventory you’re looking for, B-Stock’s network of marketplaces has you covered. Get started with one of these top gifting categories and source awesome products, perfect for Father’s Day (and all year round). Give your customers more for their money by stocking up on what dads really want…at a discount! Happy sourcing!
