10 Tech Gifts for Dad on Father's Day


Do you have an easy-to-buy-gift for dad, or is Father's Day always a challenge every single year? To make shopping for him a no-brainer, browse through this list of Top Ten Tech Gifts for Dad. We tried to include something for every budget.

1. HP Spectre x360 Convertible PC -- Dad will have a blast with this notebook-slash-tablet on a cool 360º hinge! He can tent the PC to give presentations, lay it down flat to do push-ups over top of it, or fold it in half like a sandwich to increase the thickness of the tablet. Price tag: $1,429.99.

2. Apple Watch -- Starting at $449 is the Apple Watch Sport, however: it requires an iPhone 5 (or later) and an iOS 8.2 (or later). Dad will delight in the retina display with force touch, heart rate sensor, accelerometer and gyroscope...and more. Have a bigger budget? This Apple Watch Edition in 18-karat gold sells for $22,000!

3. Beats Pill Speakers by Dr. Dre -- For $219.95, dad can rock out to his favourite tunes with these rechargeable speakers by Dr. Dre. He can pair and play with his Bluetooth-enabled device (up to a 30-foot range), enjoy surprisingly big sound, and power additional devices with USB charge out. Portable for the beach, cottage, or dad's workshop -- score!

4. Toronto Blue Jays Season Tickets -- If dad is a big sports enthusiast, purchase 500-level season tickets to the Jays for $810. Want a better view? Prices for 200-level outfield are $1,863 -- with "In the Action Seats" priced at $17,010.

5. Hammacher Schlemmer Plug-in USB Wall Outlet -- For the dad looking for an easy way to charge his smartphone, get him a Plug-in USB wall outlet, cost $39.95 USD. This AC wall outlet includes two built-in USB ports. Price is for a set of two.

6. Brookstone Self-Setting Alarm Clock -- As the owner of two Brookstone alarm clocks which have lasted for years, I'd recommend one for your dad. I love the large-display numerals that are easy to view without eyeglasses, and how it self-sets during daylight savings time. Price tag: $21.99 USD.

7. The Sharper Image Video Camera Drone -- Take dad's love for videography to new heights with this Video Camera Drone with LED lights. Dad will have a hoot downloading aerial footage and photos -- and can even pilot the drone at night! Price tag: $249.99 USD.

8. Spy Museum Store Mini Laser Flex Torch -- If dad enjoys a game of cloak and dagger, this mini laser flex torch is a score for $10 USD. Featuring a laser pointer with an 800-metre range, dad can see the "enemy" around corners. Super-bright 400mcd LED has practical applications too: like automotive engine repairs.

9. Ninja Wallet 18-in-1 Multi-Tool -- This cool 18-in-1 flat multi-tool is a great Father's Day gift for the practical dad. It's only the size of a credit card, and yet it's a bottle opener, screwdriver, cellphone stand, can opener, fruit peeler, box opener and more. Advertised on daily deal sites for $15.

10. MEC Onsite Money Belt -- For dads who travel and like to keep their cash safe, snatch up this MEC belt for $8.75. On the outside, it looks like an ordinary belt, but a discreet zipper opens on the inside panel to keep cash hidden from view.
