With Father’s Day right around the corner we thought we would help with a few gift suggestions. Regardless of how technologically inclined your dad may be you’re sure to find something on this list for him.
For the Nostalgic Dad- Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer (129.95)
This is a great gift for the nostalgic dad. You know, the one who says things like “back when I was a kid” or is constantly reminding you that vacation photos used to go on slides, not Facebook. He’ll love this modern day equivalent of a Polaroid camera and the instant gratification this product provides. Teaching him how to use his iPhone camera? That’s on you though.
For the Sleepy Head Dad- Sensorwake Olfactory Alarm Clock (Pre-Order $99)
Does your dad struggle with mornings and constantly hitting the snooze button? Meet the clock that Google says “could revolutionize our alarm-clocks”. The Sensorwake Olfactory gradually emits a scent of his choosing, gently waking him up. With choices like seaside, espresso, chocolate and grass there’s sure to be something to delight any sleep head dad.
For the Star Wars Afficiando Dad- R2-D2 USB Car Charger ($39.99)
I mean, does this one really need much of a description? With two spots for USB devices to be plugged in, there will be no need to go Tosche Station for a recharge anymore.
For the Music Buff Dad- The Marshall Kilburn Portable Speaker ($299)
As one of the loudest speakers in its class, this speaker is both aesthetically and technologically pleasing. The Kilburn would make a great gift for the dad who still talks about the garage band he had in high school or the one who never misses a Springsteen concert.
For the Jet Set Dad- Zolt Laptop Charger ($72)
Rather than carrying so many bulky chargers for every device, the Zolt has created a charger that allows for three USB devices to be plugged in at once. Most impressive is that it’s voltage allows a laptop to be charged through it as well. Perfect for the dad who’s always on the go and traveling but insists on only bringing a carry-on.

Navdy’s Head-Up Display (HUD) projects information from your phone on to your windshield to help you keep your eyes on the road. It brings in notifications from all your dad’s favorite apps, calendar, navigation etc., and supports hand gestures and voice recognition so he can keep going on his way.
For the Caddyshack Dad- Zepp Golf 2 3D Swing Analyzer ($149.95)
Does your dad come home from the course complaining about his score? He might be too busy for a lesson but what if the lesson was personalized for his swing and just a few taps away on his phone?
