Father's Day Gift Guide

With Father’s Day fast approaching, your mind has probably turned to gift-giving. What can you buy your dad that he will both appreciate and use?


Gadgets are a great investment and you can make his life easier with some of the new tech on the market. Whether he’s into popular culture or just enjoys good coffee, you’ll find something suitable on this list.

1.   Nest Hello

Video doorbells are a great option for security-conscious fathers. He can view a live feed from his phone. And he’ll get notifications when the Hello sees someone or detects motion. The camera offers HD video and night vision. He can schedule when the camera is on or off. Which is helpful if you’re having a yard party and your dad doesn’t want hundreds of push alerts.

SkyBell and Ring both make excellent video doorbells. But the Nest Hello is a better size to fit most door frames. You can view up to three hours of footage for free; if your dad wants to view any more, he’ll need a subscription.

2.   Broadlink RM Pro

Is your dad interested in starting a smart home? If he’s not ready to swap devices, consider this Broadlink RM Pro IR blaster. It converts smartphone signals into traditional IR light signals. So he can control ‘dumb’ devices with one app, like the SURE Universal Remote. These blasters offer a good stepping stone between old and new technology.

3. CHOETECH Qi Wireless Charger Charging Pad

If your dad misplaces his charging cable, consider getting a Qi wireless charging pad. He can leave it plugged in on his nightstand for extra convenience. Your dad won’t trip over the cable and he can avoid tangled wires.

Don’t feel you need to buy a charging pad from the same manufacturer as your dad’s phone. Any third-party device will work, like this model by Choetech. Its LEDs tell you the power status of the phone and the pad protects it from overheating.

4. Sonos Play:1

Does your dad listen to audiobooks, music, or the radio? Get him a speaker combining portability with quality. The Sonos Play:1 works through Wi-Fi so you get better coverage than Bluetooth models. Being wireless, your dad can take it around the house and listen wherever it suits him. Drivers in the speaker tune the acoustics to suit the room. It can stream content from Spotify or Apple Music.
