NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Since the first day of June, my inbox has been flooded with marketing emails from Amazon (AMZN), Groupon (GRPN) and every other store I've bought items from in the past year. All are making gift recommendations for Father's Day.
Groupon wants me to consider giving dad a gift certificate for golf lessons; Amazon suggests lawn and garden tools; and Williams-Sonoma (WSM) thinks I should get him an ice cream maker.
According to the National Retail Federation's 2015 Father's Day Spending Survey, the average person is expected to spend $115.57 on gifts. More than half of those surveyed are planning to buy for their father or stepfather (51.8%), while others will shop for their husband (27.6%) or son (8.9%).
To help gift-givers narrow their choices, we picked out 10 gifts for 10 different types of dads, from the wannabe bartender to the one obsessed with his car. Here's hoping you'll find something that's just perfect for the dads on your list.
The wannabe bartender
Does dad enjoy hanging out in the home bar with his beer-loving pals? Krups and Heineken B100 BeerTender with Heineken Draught Keg Technology is one gift he'll love. He can always have cold beer on tap and he'll have so much fun playing bartender. It will also make for a happy spouse as it frees up space in the fridge — no more beer bottles or beer cans to deal with.
This cool gadget uses the Peltier cooling system that provides constant and consistent cooling of the keg. Dad can throw a party and if for any reason he doesn't empty the keg (highly unlikely), the beer will stay fresh for 30 days. There's just one drawback: this BeerTender can only work with beers in the DraughtKeg system: Heineken, Heineken Premium Light and Newcastle Brown Ale.
Amazon sells this item for $179.50, but if you're shipping it directly to dad as a gift, take to heart Amazon's warning: "This item's packaging will be visible when delivered and cannot be gift-wrapped."
