If your Dad is keen on the latest technology – loves his camera, is never off his smart phone or forever hunting for the neatest app – then he could be tricky to buy gifts for. Luckily, there is a world of techie treats out there to keep them happy whether it’s their birthday, Christmas or any other special occasion. Here are ten ideas for gifts for the tech junkie in your life.
iPhone Fisheye Camera Lens
These discrete quick-connect accessories are great for the amateur photographer. The fisheye enables wide angle views from the iPhone camera lens to get awesome images.
Home Cinema System
Home entertainment has reached an exciting time in its evolution. Websites such as www.electricshop.com stock a great range of screens and sound systems for different size rooms. Products like soundbars provide great reasonably priced solutions to produce immersive sound in rooms that can’t accommodate lots of speakers. While the array of screens available these days – from 3D and 4K to curved screens, LCD and LED screens – is dizzying.
If your Dad is forever seeking out the best and most interesting apps for their smartphone or tablet, a safe bet is a voucher for free app downloads.
Wireless Smartphone Photo Printer
Another one for the amateur photographer: this is a great way to produce something tangible to keep out of the hundreds of photos your Dad takes on his iPhone.
Another way to get an extra dimension of use from their smart phone: Bluetooth speakers can be placed anywhere in the home and office and amplify your Dad’s tunes (whether that’s a good thing for the rest of the people in the vicinity is another matter!).
This is a real triumph of modern technology. The iKettle allows you to boil the kettle from anywhere in the home. This is a real treat in the morning or a great way to welcome you home.
An annoying Dad trait can be willingly trying to look as weird as possible at any given opportunity. Bluetooth earmuffs can facilitate this while letting them listen to music. These make a great winter gift for when your Dad is out gardening or walking the dog (anywhere where he’s alone, basically!).
The Must-have Console Games
If your Dad is a keen gamer there are two titles coming out this winter which will have them foaming at the mouth. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Assassins Creed Unity are the games every kid (of all ages) wants.
To allow your Dad to personalise his gadgets – laptops, phones, tablets – order him a skin personalised with a picture of his favourite person, people, phrase or football club crest.
These are a necessity for the wintertime tech addict. Show how much you care by allowing them to use their smart phone and still keep their hands warm.
