Just like you and I, our dads’ personalities have changed over time. After those priceless adolescent years when you spent weekends with your dad and knew exactly what he wanted for Fathers’ Day, you’re now probably finding that buying a special present for that special man is a little more difficult. Luckily, there is a way to figure out what Dad’s hobbies are depending on the TV shows he keeps on telling you about. Here’s a Fathers’ Day (Discount!) Buying Guide based on Dad’s favorite shows:

Man vs Wild - That one’s easy. You’ve got Mr. Outdoors! Chances are, you’ll probably find something great for Dad from a store like REI Outlet [], which is having a 20% off sale. is also having a 50% off sale for their NorthFace backpacks.

Property Brothers - HGTV has definitely captured all audiences with this home improvement show that seems to be a hybrid of House Hunters and Holmes on Homes. If Dad watches this show, you have Mr. Handyman who will probably appreciate tools and gadgets from Lowe’s [] and Sear’s []. Straight from our Slickdeals popular deals page, Lowe’s has the 16-piece Kobalt Wrench Set for $11 and Sear's has the Craftsman 200-piece Mechanic Tool set for $80.

Modern Family - This show features three very different fathers and fathering styles who all have one thing in common: they’re always there for their families. For the dad who always has the camera ready, Beach Camera has the Canon EOS 60D Set for $999. Check out Beach Camera []’s main website for other gift ideas.

Golf Channel - For the classic dad who put you through tennis lessons, asked his friends for internship opportunities during your junior year in college and continues to fly you home for the holidays, RockBottomGolf [] has gear to match dad’s style and your budget. Callaway Pre-Owned also has Buy 1 Get 1 Free at 50% off for Fairway Woods. For the classic look, Lands’ End [] also has 25% off the entire website, with shirts starting at $7.97.

Netflix and Hulu - The tech dad has probably abandoned traditional TV channels and has opted for Internet streaming completely. For the tech dad, BuyDig [] has a wide selection of gifts for different budgets including Pioneer USB Powered Speakers for $19.
