Father's Day is the one time of year we celebrate the fathers in our life. Dads, grandpas, and even neighbors are revered on this day as men who refuse to ask for directions and do more yard work than could ever be considered necessary.
This Sunday, you'll want to celebrate Father's Day right. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways you can show Dad that there's always fun to be had when you've got the right gadgets. And no, ties don't count.
Before you go shopping, you should consider how much you want to spend. If you have a low budget, consider items that are gadgets but not too costly. You also want to consider your father’s personality. Some fathers like gadgets. Others don’t. Hopefully, you know your father well enough to make that call.
This is for those dads who want help with little tasks, such as ordering pizza. Operating via voice control, the Echo can recite daily news, read him an audiobook, blast his favorite dad rock, or even order him a pizza. The Echo can also help out with the chores, including controlling the thermostat, any outdoor sprinklers, and lock any doors. If your father likes to read or do puzzles, this is not the gift for him. Cost is $180.
HyperChiller Iced Coffee Maker
Dads who drink coffee hot or cold would love this gift. It works like iced tea machines. Simple yet effective, the HyperChiller is able to chill hot coffee in about a minute without diluting your beverage. If that's not enough, it's also able to chill whiskey, wine and any other liquid vice Dad may have. For those who prefer only hot coffee, stick with the Kurig. Cost is $30.
Philips Noreco Vacuum Beard Trimmer
Products to control facial hair are popular gifts for dad at Father’s Day and at Christmas. Therefore, it’s not a surprise that this is an option for you. It doesn’t hurt to have a little extra when executing facial trims. A staggering 20 length settings optimized for precision makes this Philips beard trimmer simple and enjoyable to use. A rechargeable battery provides up to one hour of cordless use on a full charge. However, if your father prefers to be clean-shaven and doesn’t wear a beard, you should pass on this. Cost is $50.
Is your dad forgetful? Even if he doesn’t forget much, he would love this gift where you attach a tile to keys and wallet or other items that are frequently lost. The slim little trackers will find your items. Next time you lose your item, simply open the Tile app and Tile Mate will locate the item. Cost is $25.
