Father’s Day is on the horizon and that often means a bit of panicking over what to get the dad who already brings home the bacon and can buy himself anything he needs.
All this week, we’re going to focus on the 5 dad types: the tech dad, the outdoors man, the chef, the funny dad, and the sports fanatic. (We didn’t cover your dad? Still stumped? Let us know and we’ll give you our best gift options tailored to you!)
5 Cool Gifts for the Tech Dad
1. Game of Thrones Season 1 DVD – $39.99
Murder, mayhem, and multi-disk box set of Game of Thrones Season 1. (I’m not joking. This baby has 5 DVDs!) It’s perfect for the nerdy dad who loves this HBO show or enjoyed Braveheart when it first premiered. Trust me on this one.
2. “Dad’s Stache” Tech Tray – DIY
Because if Tech Dad is anything like Tech Mom, he’s got to have some place to put all of those charging gadgets, his keys, random coins, and everything else. The best part about this gift is that it’s free which makes it perfect for the broke kids, whether you’re 3 or 23. And who doesn’t love a good pun on ‘staches and stashes?
3. The ThinkGeek 8-bit Tie – $14.99
4. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet – $399.99
It’s pricey, but man, it’s pretty. This refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note comes with 16gb of storage, a sweet stylus, and runs on Android. It’s on the lower end of the spectrum for the tablet market, but TigerDirect always has good prices and quality.
5. PowerDock 5: Apple iPod/iPad/iPhone 5-in-1 Charger – $99.99
This thing is a beast, and if your dad/husband/brother/grandfather/self wanted to get something that worked for all of your Apple products, this is it. It’s currently out of stock, but you and I can drool together.
What are you getting your techie dad? We want to know!
Stay tuned because tomorrow we’re going to cover the dad of the great outdoors.
