Top Gift Ideas for Father’s Day 2016

Father’s day is fast approaching this Sunday (19/06/16). We’ll take a look at some of 2016’s best gift ideas for all the Dads out there that deserve to be spoiled.

1. Roku Streaming Stick


For the Dads who are TV buffs, few set top boxes or media steaming dongles come close to the Roku Streaming Stick. The devise allows you access to over 10,000 streaming channels and also services such as Netflix and amazon video. Not bad to impress a Dad who will surely draw comparisons to his 3-channel television set when he was a kid.

Price : £36 at Amazon

2. Sonos Wireless Speakers


Sonos make some of the best speakers in the business. They have high quality sound and being wireless makes them extra practical for those dads on the go.

Price: Vary from different models but the full range can be viewed here. Amazon.


3. Kindle Oasis


The latest addition to Amazon’s famous series of reading devices is the all-new Kindle Oasis. The Kindle Oasis has a high-resolution backlit display (great for dads with glasses). It also comes equipped with a case that charges the devise helping to keep your Dad reading for Months on end without a recharge.

Price: £269.99 at Amazon. If the latest model is too pricey there is also the budget friendly basic Kindle at £47.99.


4. Moto G4 Smart Phone


Motorola has ruled the budget smartphone market for years now but the new phone smashes it apart.

Essentially Motorola has created a mid-range phablet with a fast chipset, Full HD 5.5in display and a good camera for just £169, that’s less than half what we’d expect such a phone to cost a year ago.

If your old man needs an upgrade then just buy this for him outright and give him not only a great phone but free him from phone contract misery too, he can just add a pay-as-you-go or contract-free SIM-only monthly deal for around £10 a month.

Buy the Moto G4 now from Motorola for £169 from the Motorola store.



5.  Garmin Vivosmart HR



Is dad an exercise fiend or maybe he needs to lose a few kilos? Either way, a fitness tracker is a great way to motivate him and make sure he keeps in good shape for many years to come.

The latest and greatest is the Garmin Vivosmart HR that bundles everything you need into a compact device, with GPS tracking, heart-rate monitor, step counter, and more.

Price: it’s an incredible piece of kit for £119.99 at Amazon.

For those wanting something a bit less serious, the Fitbit Alta is a stylish but more basic alternative.



6. Topwell USB Fan LED Clock


Once plugged, this little 8go USB turns on headlights! It is a high-tech way to keep up with the time and cool down.

Price : £12.50 Amazon.

7. Connected Key Holder


If your Dad is forgetful or constantly looking for his keys in the morning this is a nice gift. Wistiki is the app that will prevent you from losing stuff. How does it work ? Tie or stick a Wistiki on objects that you do not want to lose ( keys, wallet or even your cat !). If you have lost one of those, you can make them ring and locate the Wistiki from your smartphone or tablet.
Price : £30. You can buy it from Amazon.

8. Motorhome Holiday


Here is a gift that will inspire your Pap to hit the road again and break the usual daily routine. It also offers a chance for the family to travel together and create some new memories. Yescapa allows you to rent a motorhome from other owners and make this dream possible.

Price: It depends on the type of motorhome and length of the holiday but normally averages at about £70 per day. Not bad for accommodation and transport all together! Happy travels!
