June is an excellent month to find deals on gifts! Whether you're shopping for Dad, for your best friend's wedding, or for yourself, there's a good chance you can score big savings if you know what to look for.

Here are our top categories for sales this month:

Bargain alert: Father’s Day (June 17) promotions.

Tools and tool sets

Between summer home improvement projects and Father's Day, tools are in high demand this time year! It might seem counterintuitive, but you're still likely to find them on sale.

Dairy products

It’s National Dairy Month and you can expect to see specials in the dairy case on items like cheese, milk and ice cream. Sounds like a good excuse to stock up on ice cream for summer!

Camping and fishing gear

We see an early season camping and fishing sale every month in June. This sale typically doesn’t last past month's end as it also piggybacks on Father’s Day, so stock up on equipment before it's too late.

Lingerie

Watch for bi-annual sales at chain stores like Victoria’s Secret. Discounts are deeper later on in the month, so holding off for a couple weeks could prove rewarding to your wallet.

Dishware

Wedding season promotions start in June. Look for dishware and cookware this month for gifts or for yourself!

Fitness apparel

Many stores put outdoor workout clothing on sale as the season heats up. Replace your worn out gear with a fresh look for less.
