If you love and/or respect your father, skip the cufflinks this year and get him something he’ll actually enjoy. We consider ourselves expert gift advisors when it comes to tech-loving dads (this one hits close to home), so we’ve assembled the top 5 gifts from our 2016 gift guide.
Best Gift for the Scholarly Dad:
Does your dad seemingly know everything about everything? If you answered yes, why not feed his ego with the gift of more knowledge. This Videography Bootcamp will teach dad to turn all your home videos into cinematic feats, and give him major videography bragging rights too.
Best Gift for the Gadgeteer Dad:
Even dads lose their cars, which is why this gadget will be a clear winner. If you’re looking for the gift for the guy that has everything, the Zus Smart Car Charger will do the trick. This cool little gadget works as a car charger, but also hooks up to an app that helps you find your parking spot.
Best Gift for the Entertainer Dad:
Life, liberty, and the right to a man cave is basically written in the constitution. If your dad lives that motto, the Singlecue Touch-Free Smart Home Control will definitely earn you the best child of the year award. Your dad won’t have to get up or find the remote ever again thanks to this gesture-controlled, touch-free universal remote.
Best Gift for the Life Hacker Dad:
If your dad is king of all dad hacks, he needs this Motion-Activated LED Toilet Light. This nifty gadget turns green when the toilet lid is down, and red when the seat is up—so he’ll always find his way through the dark and he’ll never miss. Even mom wins with this gift.
Best Last Minute Gift:
If your dad is living across the world or you just waited a tad too long, a virtual gift will mean just as much to him. The best choice for an increasingly forgetful dad? Sticky Password. With this handy app, he’ll never have to remember a password again. Remembering the name of “that hip rock and roll band” is another story.
