With Father’s Day coming up this Sunday, the only question is – what do you get for the tech-savvy dad in your life? Even if he’s got all the basics covered, there are still plenty of gadgets out there to surprise him with! At ABCey Events, we did some brainstorming and came up with a list of high-tech gift ideas we think he’ll love. These could also be great additions to a gift bag for your next event!
1. Fitbit |$60 |For all those active dads out there, we suggest Fitbit. Named as one of the most wearable technology devices out there, Fitbit tracks steps taken, distance traveled, and calories burned. Fitbit even continuously syncs your stats to your computer and smartphone. This is a total time saver and can help dad keep up his healthy lifestyle!
2. Mophie Juice Pack | $79.95| This one is for the dad that are constantly on their iPhone. Whether it’s checking emails, FaceTiming, or just playing Candy Crush, his battery probably drains pretty fast. A Mophie Juice Pack almost doubles the length of the charge while guarding the smartphone from every-day wear and tear.
3. Piper| $239.00|The Piper is an all in one security system that helps you safeguard your home while you’re away. Piper is equipped with a motion detector, microphone, and a siren. It also has a 180 degree wide angle lens to view a whole room. The best part of the Piper is that it can send updates and notifications straight to your phone! Give your dad some peace of mind knowing his home and family are being safely watched.
4. The Brydge:Keyboard for the iPad| $99| This high quality aluminum keyboard and stereo speaker is great for all the dads that travel. The keyboard is linked via Bluetooth and makes the iPad more like a laptop in minutes! It also protects the display when closed and provides stereo speakers instead of the iPad’s monospeaker for a clearer, louder sound system.
5.Google Chromecast | $35|This thumb sized USB device plugs straight into the HDMI port of your television. Set it up with a simple app, then send your favorite shows, movies, music, and more to your TV using your smartphone, tablet or laptop. It supports Netflix, Youtube, Hulu Plus, and Chrome. So if your dad ever wants to watch NBA/NFL YouTube highlights on the big screen, this is the present for him!
