It can be tough to find the right gift for Father’s Day - Dads tend to not know what they want, or even already have everything they need! One thing that we know for sure, is that most Dads love Gadgets. A refurbished phone or iPad is sure to put a smile on their face, that’s why we have compiled our Top 10 list of Father’s Day Gadget Gift ideas!
Samsung Galaxy S8
Okay, it’s a couple of years old now, but hear us out: The Samsung Galaxy S8 is still a fantastic phone. With the Infinity display, and the ability to add a memory card to expand the storage, the S8 is the ideal present for the gadget loving dad. Let’s face it, lots of dads will probably be using the same phone they have had for years, so get them an upgrade they will love!
Also consider: Samsung Galaxy S9; a bump up in specs for slightly bigger budgets.
Apple iPhone 7
It can be hard to get out of the Apple ecosystem, and there’s a very good reason for this. Apple devices just work. With everything across all devices seamlessly linked, it can be a better option to just upgrade your dad’s Apple phone rather than a full change. The iPhone 7 still holds its own today, and is now just a fraction of the price.
Also consider: Apple iPhone 7 Plus; a larger screen for eyes that aren’t quite as good as they once were!
Samsung Galaxy Watch
Not everyone has the money to splash out on a refurbished phone for their dad, but have you thought about a Smartwatch? The Galaxy Watch is a great-looking watch, with an array of functions and apps that can be downloaded to customise it exactly how you want to. An Ideal, cost-effective gadget and a great gift for Father’s Day.
Also consider: Samsung Galaxy Watch Active; for the Dad training for the marathon, he insists he will eventually get around to!
Want to really treat your dad this Father’s Day? The self-styled “Flagship Killer”, the Oneplus Nord is a fantastic gift idea. With specs that far exceed the asking price, the Nord really can compete with some of the best phones available, at a fraction of the cost.
Also consider: Oneplus 7 Pro; with its unique ‘pop-up’ camera and high-end specs, your dad will be entertained for hours.
