Father's Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is just a few days away. This year I’m more grateful than ever to have my Dad. He is recuperating nicely after his horrible car accident recently. Have you bought a gift yet for your Dad or even your Grandpa? I put together this list of top gift ideas for Dad, with the help from my chat room. Some of these may require you to pool resources with siblings or other family members. But from my perspective, they’re all worth the cost and should make Dad quite happy come Sunday.

  • Automatic Professional Baseball Electronic Scoreboard – Whew. Try saying that quickly a few times. It’s a little desktop piece of hardware that pulls in all of the latest baseball stats and scores. It doesn’t require a subscription fee, and it works wirelessly! Since my Dad is really in to baseball, this is something he’d love. He wouldn’t have to go flipping channels to find all the latest scores.
  • The Chumby – Yes, this is kind of geeky, but it appeals to non-Geeks, as well. It can pull in the weather, the latest scores, and even news. It’s a very interactive little gadget. It’s well suited to people who don’t want to have to do much work to get all of these with ease.
  • Bose QC3 Noise Reduction Headphones – I’ve had mine for awhile now, and I love them. They weren’t even on my radar until Ponzi got herself a set. I tried them, and couldn’t believe how comfortable they are. I cannot travel without them. Even if I am not listening to something, I turn them on to shut out the random noise and chatter on an airplane. It really works.
  • The Flip – Whether you get the Flip video camera, or something like it… get something that’s easy to use. This little device is just amazing. Just turn it on, push a button, and record. How much easier can it get? The quality is pretty good. In fact, for the price and size of this… the quality is pretty darn good.
  • Tix Clocks – I have sold so many of these, just by running them in my live stream. You don’t even have to get six of them. Even having one would be great! They’re so much fun, and a great conversation starter.

Whether your Dad is a Geek or not, he’d love any of these gifts. The point is, make sure you don’t get him anything so complicated that it sits in the box on the shelf until your mom gets tired of looking at it.

  1. Tix clocks are an excellent idea. I saw one on your stream, and 1 week later, I have one sitting on my desk ๐Ÿ™‚ I also recommend getting your Dads favourite TV DVD collection, those can never go wrong.

  2. Well, I’m not much of a gift fanatic, I never really take time to get good gifts to people, I don’t know, that’s just me, so every year my mom, brother and me give my father a shirt or sometimes some other clothing. And he isn’t much into the geek stuff, well, he kinda is, but I pretty much don’t have the cash to spend on a geeky gift lol.

  3. I’m planning to get my fathers some golf stuff since my whole family is in love with golf ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. With my father I am getting him a scanner. A small one that uses usb to power. As for the Tix Clocks, I think I would rather have that than my father.

  5. also, if your dad is the type of handyman person you could get a nice tool set. i reccomend craftsman from sears, there a little pricy but they have a life time warranty, and like my dad says, you can never have to many tools.

  6. Hey Chris,

    I wasn’t sure what to get for my Dad on Fathers Day. I came across this video and I want to thank you for the suggestion on the Bose QC3 headphones. I just bought a pair and I was astonished by the sound quality. I think I need to buy myself a pair. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. when i was in best buy the other day getting mgs4 i saw they had a lot of guitar hero/rockband type stuff for dads…not a bad idea
