As the clock starts ticking down to Sunday, June 19th, we are sharing a few of the best gifts to show dad that he means the world to you. Whether you’re shopping for the handyman type who can fix it all or the tech guru who swoons at the latest device or tech accessory, this Father’s Day gift guide provides a jumpstart to shop for minimalists to the dad who has it all. Let’s get started on finding the perfect gift that tops any “World’s Best Dad” mug out there.
For the Handyman Dad
D.I.Y. dads are a gift in themselves. “I can fix that,” is their slogan and being handy is their pastime. Help support these special dads with a Father’s Day gift that shows you appreciate these project-loving, toolbelt-wearing, product-manual-reading dads around the world.
- Laser Measure: A dad who goes the distance for his family deserves a measurer that will do the same. That’s right, it’s time to take his old tape measurer and bring it into the future with a laser measurement tool. Find a compact tool with laser precision technology that gives an accurate measure with just the push of a button. This laser measure by Bosch measures up to 165 feet and has a backlit display to make it easy to use.
- Outdoor Speaker: If you’re wondering how to make your dad’s outdoor home improvement projects more enjoyable, then look no further than a waterproof Bluetooth speaker. The JBL Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker pairs with Samsung, Apple, Microsoft and more to bring the beats to life for 12 hours of playtime. A day of repairing leaky pipes or rain gutters– no problem! “Waterproof” is in the name, and dad can rest assured that his messy projects won’t interfere with his playlist.
- Protective Phone Case: Climbing a ladder, operating power tools and hunching into crawl spaces can be a vulnerable place for dad’s smartphone. Gift him the highly protective OtterBox Defender Case that fits Samsung and Apple products. More D.I.Y. and less phone screen cracks will make for a happy Father’s Day.
For the Gamer Dad
This Father’s Day, it’s game on! That’s right, we know many dads out there who unwind or bond with their kids over the latest video games. Show him you care by taking his gaming to the next level with these gift ideas.
- 5G Home Internet: High speed home internet is the foundation of a perfect gaming experience. Don’t let dad miss out on the next level because the screen froze. Great network quality and speeds are available with Verizon’s award-winning 5G home internet. Add amazing network coverage to this year’s Father’s Day gift list.
- Gaming Headset: Show dad you care with immersive surround sound for better game engagement. The JBL Quantum 400 Over Ear Headset includes voice focus boom mic for multiplayer interactions and is compatible with PC, Mac, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and XBox. Select the winning gift for dad by upping his video game sound.
- Game Pass Subscription: This is the gaming gift that keeps on giving. The XBox Game Pass Subscription gives access to over 100 downloadable games, which can be played on PC, XBox, Android, and iOS devices. With new games added all the time, dad will feel like it’s Father’s Day every day.
For the Outdoorsy Dad
Nothing beats the great outdoors. If your dad has a focus on becoming one with nature and has packed up the family for summer camping trips since you can remember, then we have a few gift ideas to enhance his outdoor hobbies and show that you really ‘get him.’
- Portable Charger: A portable charger is a must-have accessory for any dad who spends hours outdoors. Ensuring his devices are always charged is important for safety and entertainment. For example, the mophie Power Boost has the power to charge a smartphone up to 4.8 times! Also, the multiple USB charging ports allows him to charge a few devices at once. Talk about a multi-purpose Father’s Day gift.
- Screen Protector: While this gift might seem like an obvious choice, it’s important to ensure that a dad who spends time outside working, hiking, golfing, exercising or doing anything on-the-go has a fully protected phone. Glass screen protectors are one of those necessary items that people don’t always think to purchase for themselves. So, why not make it a gift? Try the simple-to-install Black Ice Plus Glass Screen Protector for Motorola for a strong shield.
- GPS Apps: Open a new world of outdoor possibilities with an app that gives access to topographic maps, National Park visitor guides, cycling maps, and so much more. The Gaia GPS App for Android and iOS is a great navigation app for outdoor enthusiasts to find new trails, share maps with a team, mark campsites and water sources and simply explore the wilderness. There is a free version of the app, but in honor of Father’s Day, you might consider one of the two premium options for even more content.
With so many unique and high-quality gift ideas, you’re sure to find the right gift to suit your dad’s desires. From tech gadgets and safety items for the handyman dad, impressive tech accessories for the gamer dad and must-have items for the outdoorsy dad, there is a gift as unique as your dad just waiting to be wrapped up and delivered to the ‘World’s Best Dad’ in your family. Stop by your local Verizon Victra store to stock up in time for Father’s Day!
