There are two types of dads out there: the ones who are unapologetically tech-crazy, and the ones who don't even know how to turn on their own computer. Fortunately, there are amazing Father's Day tech gifts that will work no matter what type of person your dad is... because tech gifts are only fun to receive if you can actually figure out how to use them.
This Father's Day, get your dad a gift that he'll actually use — something that will make his life a little bit easier and less hectic. In other words, a tech gift that will basically make you the best daughter in the world. Whether you want to get something inexpensive but still cool, or if you want to splurge on a bigger item (or chip in for a gift with your siblings), there is something for everyone on this list. In fact, these gift ideas are so cool, you'll want to buy them for your dad just so you can steal them for yourself. Here are 18 tech gifts you need to buy your dad this Father's Day.
For The Dad Who Shaves Every Day
For The Dad Who Loves TV And Movies
I always recommend a Roku as a gift because it is literally one of the best things ever invented. It lets you stream movies and TV shows from apps like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO Go, Showtime, YouTube, Google Play, and so much more. It’s incredibly easy to use, and so great. The Roku 1 and 2 are cheaper options, but I can tell you that the 3 is a much better viewer experience.
For The Dad Who Loves To Bike Ride
For The Dad Who Likes Little Gadgets
For some reason, dudes love cool flashlights (or maybe that’s only the men in my life, I don’t know), so why not get your dad a really useful one? This one is super bright, water-resistant, and lasts for eight hours.
For The Businessman Dad
If your dad carries his laptop to and from work every day, or just travels a lot for business, he needs a really good, sturdy laptop bag. This one is a great option. It has room for a laptop and a tablet, along with other little items, it’s super padded, has a water bottle pocket, and fits comfortably. Plus, it goes with everything.
For The Dad Who Loves Music
For The Dad Who Is Constantly Working
For The Dad Who's Always In The Car
Driving and looking at your GPS on your phone don’t mix very well. Keep your dad safe and make his car ride easier with this mount that clips into the CD slot of his car. This is perfect for using the GPS or playing music.
For The Super Organized Dad
If your dad is constantly writing down little notes and using his tablet, get him this pen. He can write regularly, and the pen transcribes his notes onto his tablet so they’re all in one easy spot. This is really great for the dad who wants to keep it old school at least a little bit.
For The Simple Dad
Dads usually don’t have a bag they carry around that holds all their stuff like we do. Most of their stuff goes in their pockets, so make it easier on your dad with this cell phone case that holds the important stuff. It’s perfect for days when he doesn’t need his entire wallet, like beach trips or camping.
