Tech Gift Ideas for Father’s Day
Father’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re planning to get a gift for that special techy dad in your life, then you might want to check out our suggestions below.
For the gamer dad.
For a dad who is into games, the choice would be between three popular platforms – the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The PlayStation 4 retails for Php21K for the 1TB model and Php19K for the 500GB. The Xbox One retails for Php24K for the 500GB version. The Wii U on the other hand costs Php18K.
If he prefers something mobile, the Nintendo 3DS XL costs around Php11 while the PS Vita at almost Php9K. But if he already has those consoles, you may opt to buy him a new game title which can range from Php2K to Php3K.
As for the PC, it’s a bit tricky as you can go for a custom build which gives you more flexibility when it comes to budget. But if you’re looking for a gaming laptop, then you can check these 5 Gaming Laptops Under Php55K.
For the active dad.
For the physically active or someone who likes going out on adventures, what we can recommend are smartwatches or fitness trackers and action cameras. There are plenty to choose from when it comes to wearables like Fitbit, Jawbone, and Pebble. But if you want something more affordable, we can suggest the Huawei Band for Php2,990 or the Cherry Mobile Fit for Php3,499.
Lots of options as well in the action camera department. Aside from the popular GoPro, you can opt for the SJCams or the Cherry Mobile Explorer 2. You may also add sweat and weather-resistant headphones like the Bose SoundSport In-Ear to the mix as well.
For the home body dad.
Those who spend most of their time at home may opt for TVs or Bluetooth home speakers. LED TVs are becoming more affordable nowadays even those coming from well-known brands. Looking at Lazada you can spot 40-inchers from Samsung, LG and Devant for under or around Php20K. Not to mention that these are also good additions to the gaming consoles mentioned earlier.
If he’s a music lover, you may opt for Bluetooth speakers or headphones like the X-mini Evolve, Oontz Angle 3XL, or JBL Pulse 2. If he prefers something classy, the Satchmi Motorino Mk II is a good suggestion as well especially if he’s into vinyls.
For dads with cars.
If he owns a car, a dashcam is very much recommended if he still doesn’t have one. Lazada is also a good place to scout for such devices. We can also recommend the ASUS Reco Classic Car Cam priced at Php6,990.
Another suggestion is a car charger which is handy if he has a dashcam or brings around smartphones and tablets. Tronsmart will soon be available in the Philippines and some of their car chargers include a USB Type-C port.
For the always connected dad.
Of course, a dad always needs to stay connected with his family so smartphones can still be considered as good gifts. You can check out our guides below:
