Looking back on what dad did for you growing up, dad deserves something special on Father’s Day. But what do you get the man who played with you as a kid, taught you how to drive, and covered for you when mom was on the warpath? If you’re struggling to think of a fantastic present worthy of your father and all that he does, keep scrolling. Knock it out of the park this year by shopping from this list of six tech-inspired gifts.
The Native Union lightning charger tag
Between having a charger for each device, headphones, and travel plugs, there are a lot of cords your dad has to remember any time he travels. If he forgets something every time he goes away, wrap up a charger tag. Whether he jet sets for work or for pleasure, this sleek and sophisticated tag helps him charge and sync wherever his travel takes him. Equipped with a USB connected with Lightning cables it connects easily between devices, and it loops securely around any bag when not in use.
A dbrand iPhone 8 wrap
If dad loves his iPhone 8 but hates the gouges in its bezels, then get him a vinyl wrap from dbrand. They partnered with 3M vinyl to provide the best slim-fitting protection on the market. It covers up existing marks and prevents any more from happening. They’re also water- and grime-resistant, making it a heavy-hitting addition to the phone. Best of all, you can design custom iPhone 8 wraps in a variety of designs using their skin builder. Shop through exclusive textures like black camo, hardwood, and carbon fiber iPhone skins to find something as unique your dad.
Dad love a perfectly made iced coffee. But if he can’t be bothered to make his own or to spend the $4 on one from Starbucks then his love goes unrequited. Give him the culinary freedom of the HyperChiller. He can pour hot coffee fresh from the pot into its container, and the HyperChiller chills it to the perfect temperature each time. It uses a multi-chamber design to expose the coffee to the equivalent of 30 ice cubes — but with no dilution — cooling hot coffee in one minute flat. And if he happens to test out his HyperChiller with room temperature beer or wine, no one would blame him!
The Model Two wine extractor
If dad is serious about his wine, consider switching out the chiller for a Coravin Model Two wine access system. Unlike any other corkscrew on the market, the Model Two pours a glass of wine without disturbing the cork in your dad’s favorite vintage. That means he can have his first taste of his favorite varietal on his big day and wait until next Father’s Day to have his second glass, with no changes to the wine. It relies on a highly sophisticated medical grade needle and argon gas to extract the perfect glass of wine each time.
The Tile device finder
Though he claims it has nothing to do with old age, dad often forgets where he put his keys, wallet, and smartphone. Help him find them quicker by wrapping up a Tile or two this Father’s Day. These are Bluetooth-enabled trackers that he can attach to keys and other items he often misplaces. The tracker syncs with his phone, using its GPS to locate errant items. He can even find his iPhone 8 by double pressing the Tile button on any of the trackers, and his app will play music through its speakers until he finds it.
A sophisticated fitness tracker
By now dad has probably heard of Fitbits and other fitness trackers, but in the past, he’s snubbed them for their less-than-impressive geek-chic look. If that’s the case, the cool sophistication of the Nokia Steel HR activity-tracking watch can win him over. Its minimalist analogue clock face doesn’t cover the typical old-fashion cogs. Instead, this designer timepiece is set up with all the health-monitoring extras dad could want, including heart-rate and sleep monitors, activity tracking, and smartphone notifications.
Whether you opt for a watch, an iPhone wrap, or a charger tag, these tech-inspired gifts will help you celebrate dad on his big day. Find something that’s worthy of dad this Father’s Day and get him a present that shows him how much you appreciate him.
