Dad will be able to set this little guy up wherever he wants — by the pool, outside the camping RV, or on his office wall. Connecting his favorite media is easy, thanks to HDMI and USB ports, or he can stream wirelessly with Airplay or Bluetooth.
For the Golfing Dad

Even if he’s at the top of his golf game, the Garmin Approach S42 Smartwatch will limit the guesswork that goes into planning his next shot. With 42,000 course maps preloaded, Dad will be able to determine distances from the green and any hazards between him and the hole. He’ll even be able to analyze and track shot distances, thanks to the AutoShot round analyzer.
For the Running Dad
Price: $249.95 $179.95 at Amazon
The Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds provide a high-quality audio experience (including
Spatial Audio support) and are sweat and water-resistant, making them a sensible choice for any avid runner. They’re also compatible with Apple and Android, so your dad can use virtually any smartphone or smartwatch to sync his music. But what really separates the Powerbeats is the adjustable ear hooks, ensuring Dad will never lose his buds to the trail or sidewalk again.
For the Music-Loving Dad
Price: $129.99 at Best Buy
If your dad brings the noise wherever he goes, consider this waterproof (and dustproof) speaker from JBL. The FLIP6 packs quite a sonic punch, thanks to its powerful two-way
speaker system that delivers clear audio across all frequencies. Dad can crank up the volume even more using JBL’s PartyBoost technology to pair his FLIP6 with another compatible speaker.
For the On-the-Go Dad
Price: $41.99 at Amazon
A portable charger is a great tool for any dad who travels regularly or spends significant
time outside of an office. This device from Anker is USB-C compatible and can charge an iPhone 12’s battery to 50% in 30 minutes. It also has a 12W USB port for additional devices, and is small enough to fit in just about any work bag.
For the Guitar-Playing Dad
Price: $76.99 $48.78 at Amazon
Practice makes perfect, but what if Dad’s guitar practice is keeping you up at night, or just driving you nuts? This mini amplifier from Vox mimics the classic AC30 amp and has nine effects to choose from, including chorus, delay, and reverb. The best part? It’s designed to connect to headphones, so dad can enjoy his electric the way it’s meant to be played, without bothering anyone else around him.
For the Dad Who Hates to Clean
Price: $229.99 $139.99 at Amazon
Get this smart vacuum for the dad who dreads weekend house cleaning (or just isn’t good
at it). The Eufy RoboVac 11S can work for up to 100 hours at low volumes and automatically recharges itself. It’s the ultimate hands-off helper and has a surprisingly affordable price point compared to some competitors.
For the Sentimental Dad

For the Grilling Dad
Price: $99.95 at Home Depot
This digital meat thermometer from Traeger lets you monitor the temperature of your meat from up to 165 feet away. While we don’t suggest taking your eyes off the grill for extended periods, this sturdy stainless-steel thermometer will help Dad when he needs to hop to another task. He’ll also love the compact magnetic charging dock.
For the Gaming Dad
Price: $49.99 $39.99 at Best Buy
If your dad loves playing PC games, he’ll love this Logitech gaming mouse. It comes with 11 programmable buttons to let him plan out his game commands and a scroll wheel for lightning quick movement.
