Gadget Gifts For The Technophobe Dad
If you love GetdatGadget, you are no doubt a gadget lover. You no doubt wish to share your love of gadgets with all your friends and family members. Unfortunately, technology can be a scary thing for technophobes, people who are afraid of technology. If your dad keeps forgetting which side of the mouse he has to “right-click” on, you can still share your love of gadgets and technology with him. We have carefully selected a list of gadgets that requires no technical ability of its user, perfect for the technophobe dad.
For the dad who prides himself as a handy man around the house. The Striker Hand Tools FLEXiT Light is a handy light source that you attach magnetically to any metal surface. The lighted surface with 16 ultra-bright LED lights can be flexed and bent to give the best lighting angle and light focus.
The Lexon Flip Alarm Clock is a remarkably simple alarm clock. To turn the alarm on, just flip it to the side with the huge “ON” letters facing the top. To silence or to turn off the alarm, just flip it over with the huge “OFF” letters facing up. See? We told you technology can make things simple.
If your technophobe dad can operate an electric drill, he can operate the Spin Chill Beverage Chiller. The Spin Chill is the easiest and fastest way to chill a can or bottle of beer or soda in under one minute. Just attach the can or bottle of beer to the Spin Chill, give the beverage a whirl in the icebox and you have an instant ice cold beer.
The Piggyback Rider makes a great gift for your dad if:
- He has grand kids to give piggy back rides to
- You have a kid brother or sister who is still a toddler
- You are a “little person” and you still ask for piggyback rides from your dad
The PocketMonkey Pocket Tool is a handy multi-tool that is the size of a credit card and handily fits in a wallet so that it will always be with you when you need it. It comes with 12 handy tools from bottle opener to a set of hex wrenches to an orange peeler.
Your dad doesn’t have to be technologically inclined to make use of the Secrid Mini Wallet but he will need to rethink what he puts in it. Fortunately, the Secrid Mini Wallet is not as extreme as many other minimalist wallets. You can still load it up with up to 12 credit cards plus quite a bit of cash as well. Think of it as a good introduction to wallet zen.
If you don’t think your dear old dad is ready for the minimalist wallet lifestyle yet, you can get him the Ducti Classic Duct Tape Wallet. Other than the fact that it is made from good-ole duct tape, the Ducti Classic is very much a classic wallet. It even has a pocket for storing coins, keys and other loose stuff. It is also quite a large wallet.
Writing instruments are popular Father’s Day gifts. But we will never suggest a just simple pen. The Jac Zagoory Beta Inkless Pen is sort of a hybrid between a pen and a pencil. It leaves marking like a pencil but it never needs sharpening and it never runs out of ink. What witchcraft is this? It leaves a trail of metallic lead as it writes. Isn’t lead poisonous, you ask. Well, doesn’t your dad tell you how their generation is made from sterner stuff? Time for him to prove it.
The Keyport Slide 2.0 is a really cool way to keep all your keys plus some other useful tools together. It is kinda like a Swiss Army Knife but with keys instead. It also has a USB flash drive, a mini light and a bottle opener. All of these fit into a little box no bigger than a box of Tic-Tacs. And best of all, no more noisy keys jiggling in the pocket.
Pocket Knives are popular gifts for dads as well. But we won’t recommend just any pocket knife. We only recommend THE pocket knife. The Switch V2 Modular Pocket Knife is the only pocket knife your dad will ever need. It is fully customizable. Your dad can pick and choose from 12 different attachments that provide a total of 16 functions.
