Well, Father’s Day will be here in a few short days–do you know what you’re getting dad? How much are you going to spend on him this year? Good news for fathers out there: the average person is expected to spend $106.49 on you this year.

That number is from the National Retail Federation, which also says the amount people are spending on their fathers is up from last year. The NRF says last year, people spent $94.32 on dad.

So, what are the top gifts this year for dad? Clothing comes in at number one, followed up by gift cards, book and CDs and consumer electronics.  Some dads could also expect a nice outing. That’s because 42 percent of those polled in the NRF survey say they are going to take dad someplace special, like golfing or out to dinner.

What are you getting your dad?
