Dads do so much for everyone throughout the year, so celebrating them with a special day seems like the least we can do!
Dads are also notoriously difficult to shop for, but we're here to help.
To help find the perfect present for the papa bear in your family, we've searched the far reaches of the internet, checked in with the dads we know and used data from retailers and industry experts to come up with a list of the hottest Father's Day gifts of the year.
To share our favorites, TODAY editorial director Meena Duerson stopped by TODAY with the full list.

Not to be outdone by the new flip-flop on the block, Crocs' LiteRide Flip was launched last year and has since become the brand's bestselling pair of flip-flops. According to the brand, they're 40% softer and 25% lighter than Crocs' core comfort technology.
9. Nike for J.Crew Killshot 2 Sneakers, $90, J.Crew
These classic sneakers, born out of a collaboration from J.Crew and Nike, have been a cult favorite for years. Initially introduced in 2012, they began picking up steam in 2016, and by 2017, re-stocks were selling out in hours, according to GQ. Each rerelease has flown off the shelves, and new colors have sold out just as quickly.

When first introduced, this stylish backpack sold out almost immediately and quickly racked up a waitlist of more than 9,000 people before being released again in March. The thoughtful design and intuitive layout transformed a classic travel item. Designed to keep travelers organized while on the road, its three main compartments and external pockets are perfect for any frequent traveler — even if that travel is just a daily commute or weekend getaway. Perfect for perching atop a suitcase or carrying on one's back, it's comfortable no matter what and available in several stylish colors.
