Father’s Day is less than a week away, but don’t fret, we’ve put together a quick buyer’s list of dope gifts to hook dad up on Sunday. Whether your dad is the casual traveler, road warrior, tech guru, or weekend couch potato…we’ve got something that will let dad know that you appreciate all that he’s done for you. We’ve included links to Amazon, which is very handy given their fast Prime delivery. You’ll have your gifts with days to spare!
Power Dad Up with some great portable chargers.
Personally, I stock my carry on with Anker battery packs, but whatever brand you choose, rest assured, having that extra juice will put a smile on Dad’s face.
Ipad anyone? We got my Dad an Ipad Pro for his bday last year. Haven’t seen him since.
My Mom and I completely underestimated the power of an Ipad Pro. So much so, that we basically haven’t seen my dad in a year.
Give Dad an escape from the family…with amazing new Bose headphones.
Look, nothing against the rest of the family, but everyone needs a break, and what better way to sneak away than in plain sight? Ipad Pro in place, headphones on, dad is still part of the party, but in his own world…of beautifully drowned out chaos in symphony. Whether it be the US Open, the crying baby in 24B, or your younger brother doing his best Theo Von impersonation….Dad is happier there, but not quite there. Am I right?
Get Dad behind a solid point and shoot.
Is your dad filming the big game, dance recital, or your first time throwing down chopsticks? The Sony A6000 ( what I’ll soon be filming my YouTube channel with ) is a great point and shoot, easy peasy, entry level camera that has stunning quality. The only bad thing is it doesn’t have a mic jack, so you may want to consider equipping it with a gun mic.
Speaking of that Gun Mic. I threw one on mine and it definitely improves sound quality for not much money. Easy to clip in, plus, you just made dad a legit vlogger. Badow.
Put dad in the sky with a dope Drone.
I have this DJI Spark, which is a baby drone and totally fun to use, but won’t break the bank. It’s roughly the size of your hand, integrates with your smartphone, and takes great images. You’ll see some of its video content on my YouTube channel soon.
Put Dad in some awesome Bluffworks clothing.
I wore my Bluffworks suit all around Europe over new years and loved its wrinkle free features. I just had their new chinos, t-shirt, and polo sent to me and I’m excited to give them a go now too. Regardless…Bluffworks makes quality stuff here in America, and dad will love it.
Get Dad going on the road with a portable speaker.
I have an Ultimate Ears portable speaker and the thing is a bad, bad boy. Prop that sucker up in your hotel bathroom while you’re making yourself fresh for that big sales pitch, and badow…you just got dad pumped up and ready to Glengarry Glen Ross the day. Maybe he even rocks out your little league game with some tunes from his era, or gets that mojo going with mom when you’re at school. I dunno…let’s not make it weird. The speakers are cool and the sound is legit.
Give your Dad some solid back up
I just picked up a Lacie portable hard drive and this thing is a work horse. I got the 5TB to not only back up my computer, but also save all of the photo/video content of Monkey Miles, and travel with it for editing/blogging purposes. This external hard drive is dust, drop, and moisture resistant, features a a big orange rubbery case, and provides super duper fast transfers.
Give the Whole Family a Gift, but say it’s for Dad
Let’s be honest, we’ve all done it. We’ve gotten Mom, Dad, or maybe even little Jimmy, who never asked for a Play Station and really wanted a new bike, but you got him the Play Station you wanted, and then called him a spoiled for not appreciating the gift you so carefully picked out for “him.”
So I ask you? What’s better for the whole family than a dope TV? Am I right? Everyone can sit around and not talk to each other, but hey, at least you’re all together and you can bitch and complain about how crazy it is for Khloe to think that Tristan is going to stay faithful, and why would she ever take him back.
