Gadget Gift Ideas for Dad

garmin-oregon-500Finding something special to give dear old dad for Father’s Day can get mundane. Seriously, how many neckties can one man have?  If you’re looking for last-minute gift ideas, don’t despair. There are plenty of trinkets out there to make Dad’s day special. Here are some techie toys for the go-go-gadget guy in your life:

Garmin Oregon 550T

For the outdoorsy dad, you might consider this doohickey. This multipurpose device will assure that pops won’t get lost during one of his walkabouts in the mountains. It serves as a personal navigator, a digital camera, a compass, and altimeter. You can also download topographical maps. The device is waterproof (and probably Sasquatch proof). It’s easy enough for the tech-challenged dad but cool enough for Bear Grylls.

Nike Plus SportWatch GPS powered by TomTom

If papa dearest does run into a bear or sasquatch, you can give him this nifty sports watch from Nike and TomTom. This allows runners to track their movements, calories burned, distance, heart rate, and time. This also helps him to find his way back home with the built-in GPS – hopefully, minus the bear and big foot.

Remote Control Bald Eagle

Why not? The Bald Eagle is, after all, a symbol of our great nation. This just assures that the old man won’t get his eyes pecked out while playing his bird of prey. It might also give him the joy of inconspicuously dive-bombing the neighbors. The model has a bio-accurate wingspan and a hidden motor. So, not even a real bald eagle might know it’s an impostor…well, except that it’s made of metal.

Robomow RL2000 Robotic Lawn Mower

For the lawn-loving lad, here is one tool that might let him have an afternoon to relax. Simply input a weekly schedule of when the grass should be cut, and sit back. If you’re going on vacation, you don’t need to worry about how high your grass will be when you get back. Robomow has that covered. After making the rounds and trimming your yard, Robomow automatically returns to its base.

Heated Shaving Cream Dispenser

Maybe the big guy is looking like a sasquatch himself. If so, why not give this heated shaving cream dispenser to provide him warm, lather foam for that perfect shave? Insert your favorite shaving cream or shaving gel, and let this device heat it up. Many dads find that having a hot lather helps them get a better shave.
