Dads. They taught us how to ride a bike, held us while we cried, protected us from “monsters,” and supported us during every significant achievement. It only makes sense that they feel appreciated every day — especially on Father’s Day. The big day, which this year falls on Sunday, June 19, is the perfect day to spoil the father figure in your life.

Whether you’re looking to gift him a fresh new T-shirt, a pair of jeans, a hat or a new backpack, there’s bound to be something on the brand’s website that your dad would enjoy this year.
