NRF has been conducting its annual Father’s Day survey since 2003 to see how Americans will celebrate dad on his special day.
As consumer confidence continues to rise, 77 percent of Americans will celebrate Father’s Day and spend an average of $133 per person, treating dad to special outings, clothing, gift cards, electronics and more.
The expected spending would be second only to last year’s $15.5 billion, the highest in the 15-year history of the survey at an average $135 per person. Individuals between 25 and 34 years old will be the biggest spenders this year at an average $188 per person.
