Father’s Day is June 16 in most countries and you know what that means—the Amazon Father’s Day Gift Shop is open for business!

As with its Mother’s Day gift guide, Amazon has organized its gift suggestions under broad categories like “Dapper Dad,” “the Outdoorsy Dad,” and “Hipster Dad” (where the top recommended item is Reef flip-flops with built-in bottle opener.)
