Top gifts for dads this Christmas

Written by Steven White

Whilst Christmas should always be about treating the kids to some great presents, it’s also true that us dads shouldn’t have to miss out.

So here’s a look at the top five gifts that all fathers would love to get this festive season – after all, one Father’s Day per year just isn’t enough!

Amazon Echo

Being a dad in the 21st century means that we all have to do a little extra around the house. But whether you’re doing the cooking, or just keeping the kids entertained, there’s little doubt that the Amazon Echo can make it all a lot easier.

This cool device hooks up with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant. It provides you with a hands-free way to do anything from adding items on the shopping list to setting alarms. And with a great option to call up your favourite songs with a simple command, it’ll give us all much lazier way to do the simplest tasks!

Oculus Rift

All dads love gadgets. And there are few gadgets more likely to impress friends than the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. This is definitely the best VR headset on the market. And whilst it can take some getting used to, it’s a great way to add a futuristic touch to your gaming endeavours.

So that whether you’re playing Robo Recall, or Dead and Buried, you can make sure that you’ve got some suitably grown up entertainment whilst the little ones are playing on their Nintendo Switches.

Apple iPhone X

Nobody’s going to deny the fact that Apple make the best smartphones. And once again the tech brand delivered a real game-changer when they released the iPhone X earlier this year.

Obviously, it can do all the regular tasks like making calls, using apps, and playing roulette at, but it’s the all-screen display, voice activated functions, and super-powerful performance that will make it this year’s must-have.

GoPro Hero 6

Taking family photographs has been keeping dads occupied for decades. But if you’re looking to take it up a level, then why not ask for a GoPro Hero 6 for Christmas?

This tiny wearable camera is capable of taking 4K-quality video at 60 frames per second. And with automatic uploading direct to your phone, it’ll make it so much easier to relive that awesome skiing holiday.

Nespresso Prodigio

And finally, what better way to combat that Boxing Day hangover than with a home-made industrial-strength coffee? Whilst everyone else is trying to get to grips with their juicers, dads can enjoy the challenge of working out how to use the Nespresso Prodigio to give them a very caffeinated pick-me-up.

This great product is able to turn even the most technophobic dad into a suave barista. But what makes this awesome device so great for lazy dads is that it can even be operated through your new smartphone to give you the perfect coffee in less than 25 seconds!
