Father's Day is Sunday, June 21, and whether or not you spend the holiday with your dad or the father-figure in your life, you can show him you're thinking of him with a special gift. It can be tough to decide what to get for dad, between shopping on a budget and wondering what he might want. To help, here are 18 Father's Day 2020 gifts from daughter ideas to get you started.
Whether you're spending Father's Day together or sending a gift from afar, there are plenty of shops that offer shipping that will get the gift to dad in time for the holiday. In light of the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, after the recent killings of Black people at the hands of police, among them George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Tony McDade, you may want to show your support by patronizing Black-owned businesses. If you're going to buy dad a gift anyway, why not take a look at some of the great Black-owned shops offering gifts dad will love? There are plenty of options, ranging from coffee to wine to beard balm. And as you shop, you can bookmark the places you really love so you can support them all year round.
If you're sending an alcoholic gift, keep in mind you must be 21 years or older to order it, and there may be different shipping policies and restrictions depending on which state your father lives in. Alcoholic gifts will require an ID check, although a signature may not be required at this time due to social distancing efforts from UPS and FedEx.
