If your dad is notoriously difficult to shop for, don’t worry; you’re not alone.
To help, we put together a list of 20 tech-themed Father’s Day gifts to make his life easier — and he doesn’t have to be a tech geek to be into them. Whether he likes reading, working out, or listening to music, or doing any number of other things, we’ve got you covered with expert recommendations — many of which we’ve tested ourselves. Best of all, they’re all less than $100.
1. The Amazon Echo
2. Stylish computer glasses that reduce his blue light intake
If he sits in front of a computer every day, he needs these blue light glasses that increase magnification, reduce glare, and filter out blue light in order to reduce eyestrain. They’re also available with prescription lenses— we tried them and loved them.

3. A Philips Hue starter kit
Nobody likes having to get up off the couch and walk across the room to turn the lights off, and that includes dad. Philips Hue bulbs let him control the lights from his phone, or even using his voice through an Amazon Echo.
4. A Tile tracker
With a Tile Slim tracker, he’ll never lose his wallet again.
5. Truly wireless earbuds
Whether he has a crowded commute or uses music to motivate him during workouts, your dad will appreciate a pair of totally wireless earbuds.
6. A Fitbit
A Fitbit can help your dad get into the best shape of his life by tracking his steps taken, calories burned, and time spent active. If you have a Fitbit too, you can challenge him to see who can get more steps over a week or weekend for a little extra motivation.
7. A Kindle
The Kindle holds hundreds of books, lasts for several days between charges, and is light enough to hold comfortably in one hand. If your dad is an avid reader, he’ll love carrying his entire library with him everywhere.
8. An old school record player
A record player will help your dad recapture his youth and finally get around to dusting off the albums he hasn’t touched in 25 years.
9. Audiophile-quality speakers
A great compliment to the record player above, Edifier’s speakers are known for their superb audio quality and classy look. This is a perfect pair for your dad to keep in his home office or living room.
10. The Fire TV Stick
Instead of having dad search through different menus to find the latest and greatest Netflix series, get him a Fire TV Stick with an Alexa Remote. He’ll be able to ask for the shows and movies he wants, getting them in front of him quickly and easily.
