If dad hasn’t stopped talking about the iPad since it came out or he has a special room designated just for his “toys,” this guide is for you. Make dad smile ear to ear this Father’s Day with one of these awesome gadgets.
iPad ($600): There’s not a dad out there who wouldn’t be thrilled to open his Father’s Day gift box and find this staring back up at him. It’s obviously a huge splurge, but give it to him preloaded with kid-friendly apps and videos, so the whole family can use it…every once in while, at least.
Kindle ($259): If dad is a bookworm, it’s time his library went digital. This wildly popular e-reader weighs only 10 ounces, has a 3G wireless connection and can go a full week on just one charge.
Flip HD Video Camera ($199): Just in time for summer vacations, get dad this incredibly-easy-to-use video camera to caption all the fun moments on your upcoming family getaways. The camera itself plugs right into the USB drive on your computer for even simpler uploads.
Digital picture frame ($30): This is our favorite gift for dads who travel a lot. Just load it with new pics of you and kids every time dad goes away and he can whip it out whenever he’s feeling a little homesick.
Portable travel assistant ($225): Yes, that is just a fancy way of saying GPS. Save dad from ever having to ask for directions again with this sleek, touchscreen navigator.
