Best Tech Gifts for Dads

May 31, 2018

With Father’s Day coming up, check out these hot tech gifts that are sure to make dad feel like a little kid again.

Amazon Echo

“Alexa, how’s the weather today?” …is all dad has to say in the morning to get his daily weather report. She can add things to his to-do list so he doesn’t have to find a pen or his phone, play his favorite music, and even order pizza. An Amazon Echo is one of those things you don’t think you need until you get it, but when you do you’ll wonder how you got by without the convenience of your virtual home assistant.


The quality and price of drones have improved in the past few years so you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for a high-quality drone anymore. Let dad get an aerial view of his favorite fishing lake, hiking trail, or sports stadium with a drone for Father’s Day. This drone found on Amazon has great reviews and is only $120.

Roku Express

For only $70 you can give dad the gift of his favorite TV shows and movies wherever he goes. The Roku Express is a small USB device that plugs right into a device and can then stream anything from Netflix, ESPN, YouTube, Movies Anywhere, and numerous other streaming apps.


Similar to an Amazon Echo, a GoPro is another piece of gear that opens your world once you own it. Being able to see underwater while you fish, capturing beautiful video of your snorkeling adventure on vacation, or even making fun family videos in the pool, a GoPro will add priceless photos and video footage to your collection of memories. There are several models available for around $100 up to several hundred dollars.

Apple Watch

The Apple Watch can manage your whole life right from your wrist, but you can’t set it down and forget or lose it like your phone! Send messages, take calls, track your fitness, pay with Apple pay, and so much more! Better yet, you can use it in water!

Wireless Charging pad

Dad would love the convenience of a wireless charger. There’s nothing worse than thinking you plugged in your phone at night only to wake up and realize you didn’t properly plug it in and it didn’t charge at all. With a compatible charging pad you just have to set your phone down on top of it and it starts charging automatically.

Logitech Keys-to-Go

Working from his phone is convenient, but tasks that take a lot of typing can be time-consuming from a phone. The Logitech Keys-to-Go is the perfect gift for the dad who works on-the-go. It’s a phone stand with a keyboard so he can easily type from his phone. It has a dirt cover to keep it clean, and at only $70 the increased productivity makes this a great investment for dad.

Owlet Monitor Duo

The gift of sleep is priceless and one that all new dads would appreciate. With the Owlet Monitor Duo, dad can sleep a little easier knowing he can track his sleeping baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels while streaming 1080p HD video and sound right on his phone. The Owlet Monitor Duo keeps an extra watch on baby so dad can rest easier. Every dad needs one for Father’s Day.
