Father’s day is the one time of year that most of us show our love and appreciation for the father figure in our life, and this is usually done under the guise of a gift. Even though we deeply appreciate the presence of our father-figure (be it your biological or adoptive father or the man who acted as the father-figure in your life), we rarely say it.
This is the one time of the year when we are able to do it without sounding corny and too emotional. Father’s day is a capitalistic holiday, and we can all cope with that, but we live in a capitalist society, and we might as well celebrate it. So, without further ado, let’s dive into this blog and learn some of the best tech gifts to give your father-figure.
If your dad is a bookworm like me, then this is the perfect gift for them; instead of buying them a book this year, go ahead and make the big jump and buy them a kindle. It allows you to download thousands of books straight on the device, and you can read them offline on your library.
It is ultra-portable and has a natural-looking e-ink display which has a resolution of 167 pixels per inch and now even features a front line. It also has a battery life of weeks after a single full charge. It is also pretty inexpensive and is available in 2 colors: black and white.
2. Modern Vinyl turntable
If your dad is a music lover and collects vinyl, then this might be the perfect gift for him. Nowadays, most of us stream our music, but some people still prefer the old fashion vinyl, and if your dad is someone like that, then this might be the best father’s day gift for him.
The Fluance RT81 is the perfect entry turntable for your dad and is compatible with your existing record collection and is affordable, easy to use, has a built-in preamp, and supports 33-1/3 and 45 rpm playback. If your dad is an avid music listener and collects vinyl, then this might be the perfect addition to his collection.
3. Electrical screwdriver
Most of our dads are really into fixing things themselves, even if they have to call up a professional later on, to fix what they were trying to fix. The thing is, they love getting their hand dirty and fixing things around the house. An electrical screwdriver can be the perfect companion in future DIY endeavors.
Get them the new Craftsman Max 4V Cordless screwdriver with 10 screw bits. It is a universal tool that your dad will thank you for. It’s possible that they already have one but get them either, as the one you get them will have an emotional resonance.
4. Mirrorless camera
In the past couple of years, Sony has built some of the better mirrorless cameras on the market, and the Alpha A6000 is the perfect example of this masterpiece. The Sony Alpha A6000 comes with a camera body and a 16-50mm lens. This means that this camera has everything you need to get started right off the bat.
You can always add-on to it, but it is perfectly usable as-is. It is also relatively easy to get a grasp of how to use it, and compared to other cameras on the market; it is also relatively inexpensive. While most mirrorless cameras currently on the market cost on average a thousand bucks, this one shines because its retail price is only $650.
5. Apple Watch
The Apple Watch continues to be an excellent gift for Dad. The Series 7 is the latest model with health tools like a blood oxygen sensor and an electrocardiogram that can help him keep track of his heart health. The Apple Watch Series 7 also ensures he receives notifications when he doesn’t have his iPhone with him or nearby, making it easier to contact him.
The new model also features an updated display design with narrower edges, making it easier to see the time and other “complications” than previous models of the Apple Watch. Apple has also made the Permanent Display brighter, so it’s easier to see the screen when you glance to check the time.
