Father’s Day is less than two weeks away, so today’s sweep of the internet’s sales bins includes gifts for all sorts of dads, from travel accessories for the dad with Delta miles to better bedding for the dad who doesn’t miss travel at all. And since the heat and humidity aren’t going anywhere, we also found some things to help you manage them, including a frizzy-hair-care kit and some expert-recommended sunscreen.

For the dad who’s been wearing the same T-shirt since college, here’s a baseball-inspired raglan shirt that can be worn anywhere and with almost anything. (If red isn’t his color, there’s a blue version, too.)

Keep your hair under control on humid days with this anti-frizz hair kit from hairstylist-recommended brand Briogeo. It includes travel-size bottles of shampoo and conditioner, as well as a leave-in conditioning spray for taming on the go.

These (half off) Nike leggings are ideal for air-conditioned indoor workouts this summer — and outdoor runs come the fall.

For the dad with some travel coming up, here’s a new toiletry bag to keep him organized in style.

Or, if he’s a big foodie, give him these seemingly simple Paul Smith socks with a spaghetti-and-meatballs doodle embroidered at the top.

For beach trips, road trips, picnics, or backyard beer hangs, here’s a retro-looking cooler that looks good, works well, and travels easily thanks to its leather carrying strap. It’s also available in four other colors: nude with cyan, nude with tan, yellow, and lilac.

A gag gift that’s also highly practical: Here’s an on-sale value pack of batteries to make Dad’s home (or your own) more prepared for the inevitable.

When we’ve talked with dermatologists about their favorite sunscreens, Coola comes up over and over again — as the best natural face sunscreen, the best stick sunscreen for babies, and the best sunscreen for dry skin. Today, you can get it in spray form — with a peachy scent — for 15 percent off at either Macy’s or Nordstrom.

This simple, striped T-shirt dress is perfect for throwing over a bathing suit.

Speaking of which, if you’re still on the hunt for a new swimsuit, this pink tie-dye-esque one with a plunging neckline strikes a nice balance between simple and stylish.

Finally, if dad could use some new sheets, this organic percale set from Allswell is 20 percent off, available in four other colors. The discount code DAD20 works on all other bedding and bath items, too, if you’ve got sheets covered.
