Great Gadget Gifts for Dad this Father’s Day
If dad couldn’t imagine life without some of his favourite gadgets and if he’s a complete tech-head, opting for a gadget gift for father’s day is sure to be a winner. There are absolutely loads out there for all interests, budgets and tastes and we’ve had a look at some of our favourites to show you some of the things that are out there that dad is guaranteed to love.
Phone or tablet device protective cover
Help keep dad’s most prized possessions safe with a protective cover for his favourite gadgets, whether it’s his phone, tablet or E-reader. You could even make him a personalised one to make it a bit more personal to him and the kids. There are device covers and more personalised gift ideas at My Photo Gifts to have a look at, too.
Coffee or tea makers
The ideal gift for the caffeine fiend is a nifty coffee or tea maker to spruce up his morning cuppa. John Lewis does a good range of lots of different drinks makers so you’re sure to find something he’d really like. (This is a bit of a bonus one as you can use it too!). You could even get him a new mug to go with it, as well for extra brownie points.
If he’s always finding himself snapping or creasing his millions of important cards, investing in a new wallet for him might be a good idea. However, why not opt for an ultra modern, ultra protective one that focuses mainly on protecting cards slightly more so than cash? After all, dad’s rarely have cash anyway! You can pick up cool, protective wallets here.
Combination bottle stop
How about a gift to help protect his favourite bottle of bubbly? There are loads of bottle stoppers out there, but our favourite has to be this combination bottle stopper as you need to enter the code to open the bottle which is bound to impress him and keep drinks thieves at bay! (Just make sure he tells you the combination!).
Bicycle repair kit
A gadget for an active dad is always a good idea, too, like this bicycle repair kit for example. It’s bound to come in handy if he likes going on long bike rides or if he cycles to work, so he’ll no doubt really appreciate it. It comes with a full set of instructions to talk you through any bike catastrophes which is useful to know!
Grip strip for gadgets in the car
This a genius little invention that is really useful to anyone that spends a lot of time in the car and needs the help of a mobile or tablet to either guide the way using maps or for music. The little grip strips stick to the dashboard of the car and allows you to stick your phone onto it with no hassle, fuss or mess. Dad is bound to appreciate it and they’re surprisingly cheap, too.
