Father’s Day is this Sunday, so if you’re feeling the crunch, now’s the time to hit that buy button — and today, we found lots of on-sale things that would also make great gifts for Dad. But if you’re just in the mood to shop for your own summer adventures, there’s plenty of essentials for the upcoming long weekend, too.

We’ve written about a version of this Anker Bluetooth speaker before — and this one is even more waterproof, making it ideal as a poolside companion.

Father’s Day is fast approaching, and we found of couple of things that would make nice gifts for outdoorsy dads at REI — including this lightweight, water-resistant waist pack that’s easy to sling on and go.

This stainless-steel water bottle will keep liquids cold or hot all day, and it has a two-stage filter that’ll improve water’s taste and protect your dad from waterborne bacteria and other debris.

Long summer days off from school call for plenty of sunscreen and shade and this UPF-50 rash guard that’ll protect your kid from harsh rays. It comes in sizes 6 months to 7 years, and it’s currently half off.

Waterproof and brightly colored and with an extra-thick rubber core, this bouncy ball won’t get lost in the waves while playing fetch with your dog on the beach.

Like our favorite beach towels, this reversible striped version from Target is brightly colored and sure to enliven lazy days on the sand.

This airy bar cart is made from metal but looks like woven wicker and is great for stocking summery drinks either outdoors or inside.

There’s still enough time to shop Urban Outfitters’s summer styles sale, including this crisp, daisy-white shift dress perfect for long walks on the beach.

And add a pop of color to your outfit with this multicolored tote bag.

If the new grad in your life is moving into a brand-new place, they might appreciate this modern side table with an integrated light underneath that’s 30 percent off.
