5 Great Father's Day Gifts
Father's Day is right around the corner, but it's not too late to pick out the perfect gift for the Dad in your life online and still have it in time for the big day. Here are five great gift ideas to get you started.
For dads who want to grill on the go: Coleman Road Trip Grill LXE
There's a good chance Dad already has a grill at home, but does he have one for road trips, camping trips and tailgate parties? The Coleman Road Trip Grill is easily portable and perfect for grilling on a family adventure.
This propane grill folds for easy transport, and when unfolded offers a grill, griddle, and stove grate—enough to handle any outdoor cooking task Dad might want to throw at it.
And if he doesn't have a grill at home, be sure to consider our other favorite grills.
For dads who love music and movies: Sonos Playbar sound bar
If Dad's been lamenting the poor sound quality of his home entertainment system, it's hard to do better than the Sonos Playbar soundbar speaker. In addition to great sound, this speaker is completely wireless, requiring no cables to hook up to your television or any other of Dad's favorite gadgets.
The Playbar will stream music from iTunes, Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Cloud Player and other streaming music source, making Dad's favorite music even better.
For dads who want to read, write, or play on the go: Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 tablet
The Kindle Fire HD 8.9" tablet hits a perfect sweet spot for size between larger 10" tablets and smaller 7" tablets, giving Dad a large, sharp display without any extra bulk. The Fire HD provides all of the features of an ereader (through the Kindle app) while also letting Dad watch movies, play games and use Android apps.
While we'd recommend the Fire HD regardless, Amazon's $20 off Father's Day sale certainly doesn't hurt.
Of course, if Dad is an Apple fan, he might prefer the iPad mini instead.
Price: Starts at $269 on Amazon
For dads who have too many gadgets to count: New Trent iCarrier portable charger
If Dad's a gadget-lover who carries around a tablet, smartphone and perhaps other tech toys, chances are he has complaints about battery life. Fortunately, solving his battery woes is as easy as giving the gift of a New Trent iCarrier portable battery. It would be hard to do better for an on the go charger than this powerful 12,000mAh battery pack, which has the juice to keep all of dad's gadgets charged even when he doesn't have time to stop and find a power outlet.
The iCarrier can charge two devices at one time and the power to charge tablets as well as smartphones—a few times over. Best of all, the iCarrier is durable enough to stand up to being tossed into the bottom of a backpack or briefcase.
