Target's Father's Day 2018 Sale Isn't Just For Dads

Father's Day is literally about two seconds away, but there's no reason to panic if you don't have a gift yet. Why? Because, as ever, Target has your back when it comes to last-minute shopping — this time with a bunch of hot deals designed with Dad in mind. (And, let's face it, you probably have to go to Target to pick up a few things anyway.) Plus, the Target Father's Day sale isn't just about fathers; there are plenty of discounted items the whole family can use.

No need to resort to cheesy mugs telling him he's #1 (he already knows, duh) or silly ties or boring socks or tacky bumper stickers about how he'd rather be golfing. Whether he's into fitness or tech or food or just looking fine, you'll find something with a slashed price tag that's sure to put a smile on his face. Of course, since he's a super unselfish guy, there are also some steals on this list that will appeal to other members of the household, too. Might as well kill two (or three or four) birds with one trip to Target, right?

From dads-to-be to brand new dads to dads who've been doing the dad thing for so long now they can barely remember their pre-dad days, it's safe to say all dads would like a little recognition on Father's Day, even if they would never come right out and say it. So here's to honoring the man of the hour on his big day, and saving a few bucks in the process.
