The Best Father’s Day Gadgets

Although a classic tie is always a safe bet for a Dad who heads off to the office every day, why not make his Father’s Day a little more fun and memorable with one of the many new and unique technological gadgets on the market today like a home theater with a surround sound system to really make him feel like he’s part of the action? Surround sound speakers will put him on the field immersed in the big game with the roar of the crowd around him, or he can experience thunder brought to life booming as if he’s actually in a storm during his favorite suspense movie thanks to the realism you get with a surround sound system.

For the little boy in Dad, consider buying him a new toy such as a remote control plane or speedboat. With this hobby, he’ll enjoy racing or mastering how to maneuver through the water, how to perform plane tricks, and it’s an activity he can do together with his children or grandchildren.

Finally, when on vacation at the beach, the pirate in Dad can have fun hunting for buried treasure with a handheld metal detector. It can be set to differentiate between gold, silver, and other metals, and is great for searching parks, woods, fields, or for scouring historic or abandoned sites for old jewelry, coins, or relics.

    Fantastic gift ideas! I’m sure any father would greatly appreciate any of this gadget gifts! A new HDTV would have been the perfect gift on my end for my dad this year, but unfortunately for me, he already splurged on one himself. Now I’m thinking, after a recommendation from one of my coworkers at Dish, I’ll just get him a Sling Adapter to make his TV addiction that much greater. He still travels a lot for business, so with the Sling Adapter and Dish Remote Access app on his iPad, he’ll be able to watch all of his favorite shows from back home, live or recorded, anywhere he goes in the world on 3G/4G or Wi-Fi. I know he’s going to love it and I can’t wait to see his reaction when I give it to him next month! :)

    great post, I think every dad loves gadgets, whether it is power tools or the latest tech options. The issue i have every year is my dad, and a lot I know just go out and buy whatever they really want and don’t tend to save much so it still can be hard to find something they would like but have not already gotten.
