Today’s midday sale sweep is another grab bag of in-season goods: There’s some nearly half-off patio furniture, rarely-on-sale reusable bags, lots of summery cooking gadgets, and more. (And we think some of these — including a stylish toolbox and low-tech camera — would make great gifts for dad, too).

Whether he’s into gardening or fixer-upping, we think this minimalist, cherry-red tool box would make an ideal Father’s Day gift for the DIY-er dad.

And for the dad who grills, this stainless-steel set-up is the “most portable grill on the planet,” and can be used to cook everything from hot dogs to sirloins.

To go with the grilling kit above, some stainless steel skewers with attractive, ergonomic handles.

For cycling or dog-walking this summer, a not-too-crunchy, made-in-Portland fanny pack to keep your hands free and essentials close.

To give your tote-bag rotation a bit of a summer refresh, our favorite rarely-on-sale reusable bags are 30 percent off in a cheery daisy print.

A summery, water-resistant bucket hat fit for the lake (or a fire escape).

If you’re lucky enough to have a patio or backyard, we found this actually stylish, weather-resistant patio chair in an unexpected green for nearly half off.

This classic iron garden chair goes with a wide range of décor since you’ll get to mix and match your cushions — plus, it’s stylish enough to bring indoors.

And finally, for the dad who prides himself on his camera collection but isn’t able to get film developed right now, our favorite Polaroid camera takes out the film-developing middle man, and will likely invoke some nostalgia, too.
