Our Father’s Day Gift Guide is eagerly awaited each year as we bring you gifts that are not for any ordinary dad.
Today. we have some incredible present ideas for the dad who has everything, along with a couple of budget options for children spending their own pocket money. Without further ado, let’s start with the best a man can get:
NVIDIA SHIELD TV
We tested the NVIDIA Shield ATV and loved it. What’s different with this? Everything, and it still retains the incredible quality, capacity and speed we’ve come to know and love from Shield. It’s brilliant. It has a wonderful new design that’s super sexy and it can do a lot of things. I know you want to know more, so here it is:
Sporting a sleek, new design, the new NVIDIA SHIELD TV is the most powerful 4K smart TV platform ever built, providing the best, most complete entertainment experience in the living room. Explore thousands of apps like Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube, Spotify, Kodi, and More. Plus, with integrated Chromecast support on SHIELD, you can cast other favourite apps like ITV, 4 and Channel 5 from Android, iOS, MAC, windows devices to your SHIELD TV.
SHIELD TV stands alone among media streamers, with the widest range of gaming capabilities and richest assortment of game content – it’s game library, GeForce NOW, is like Netflix for games!
The NVIDIA SHIELD TV retails at £189.99 and ships with both a remote and a game controller. We love it
Even if your dad doesn’t go camping he’ll still love this Teg Stove. He can use it in the garden, the allotment, even on a layby when travelling. It’s no ordinary camping stove though, it’s the Daddy of all camping stoves and it’s also brought camping into the 21st century, as it includes tech that will blow your mind. It can even charge your smart phone. It looks amazing and is easy to use, and boils the kettle perfectly. This is a must for any dad, any traveller, any woman or man. We love it. It’s no wonder Peter Jones of Dragon’s Den invested in it. Here’s a little more information:
About Tegstove (www.tegology.com)
Tegstove is an intelligent portable gas stove like no other. Using sophisticated technology and clever design it stores energy in a smarter way, offers robust stability and high performance cooking while allowing you to charge mobile phones, tablets and GPS equipment. In one simple to use device, Tegstove uses a powerful Thermoelectric Generator (TEG) to produce energy, which is stored in an internal battery and harnesses the power of safer and lighter butane gas, rather than using expensive mix gas solutions.
A Dragon’s Den sensation, serial entrepreneur and Dragon, Peter Jones has also invested in Tegstove following an impressive business pitch from founder and inventor Spencer Turner, in series 13 of the BBC prime time show. Tegstove can be purchased from many major retailers and online stockists. RRP: £150
MIVUE DRIVE 55LM
This is THE BEST SatNav we’ve tried. Forget those sat navs where you feel as though your fingers are too fat to operate them (you know which ones I mean), forget squinting at the roadmap. This is clear, so easy to use and it looks amazing. We loved:
- The Parking feature
- The Clear display
- The wide angled lens
- The ease of use
We’ll never go back now and we know, even if he still insists on a paper map, Dad will love it too.
TERRAILON PRIME SCALES
These are no ordinary scales, connect to a fitness tracker and your phone for impressive statistics all dads will love. These are sure to become the next big gadget that he just can’t get enough of. Whether he’s maintaining his weight or trying to lose it, these scales do it all. Give dad the gift of health with Terrailon.
The company recently launched its full set of connected wellbeing devices (see press release attached) which work together with the firm’s Wellness Coach application (which features recipes and fitness tips for weight loss). The company is currently running a promotion on Argos for Father’s Day right up to July 2017 on its Terraillon Web Coach Prime Fit Kit (which features the connected Web Coach Prime scale and an activity tracker). The kit retails at £99.99
This sounds crazy, it’s really not. We tried it on the school run and it gets you from A to B so much quicker and it’s a lot of fun. We love ours and think it makes a great present for dad. You know you’ve had a go on a child’s in the past, admit it. This is so much better as it’s designed to take an adult weight, so it’s sturdier and, it may be our imagination, but faster too. We absolutely love it and know Dad will also.
There are a lot of options and colours to choose from so you can make the gift really personal. He won’t be able to resist a ride on the newest craze for adults.
Find them at Micro Scooters and don’t accept cheap substitutes. These are the real deal.
MERGE VR HEADSET
Just look at this. It looks amazing and connects to your phone giving you a completely immersive experience on the move. Dad will spend hours lost in foreign worlds as you introduce him to high quality virtual reality.
Merge VR turns your smartphone into an immersive virtual reality headset, without the hassle or hang ups of other VR headsets. Made of a comfortable, soft material, the headset is a safe and fun experience for children, teenagers and adults alike. Dual input buttons enable you to explore, travel and experience digital content like never before, while access to the vrstart.com website gives you endless hours of free VR experiences. Not only that, Merge VR is also compatible with all recent iOS and Android smartphones. Find it at Game.
There are a lot of multitools on the market but this is the best we’ve tried. Why? It’s strong, sturdy and it seems to be indestructible. It’s a multitool that keeps on giving with the vast array of attachments that can work their way through anything with ease. Even if Dad has enough tools in his shed, he’ll still love this smaller addition, as this is a gift that keeps on giving, every single day, for years.
Here are some specs:
• 12 Tools: Needlenose pliers (spring loaded), ‘V-Cut’ wire cutters, scissors, fine blade, serrated, saw, Phillips screwdriver, small flat screwdriver, medium flat screwdriver, bottle opener, can opener and lanyard ring
• Spring loaded pliers
• Open frame design
• Patented saf.T.Plus
Don’t skimp on a multitool that breaks when he uses it, choose one that really works, again and again and again.
BUTTON AND WILDE
We recently came across a personalised toiletry supplier that we’ve fallen in love with. It’s not just the personalisation (although having our own name on a body lotion is a bonus), it’s the smells and the quality of the product. Button and Wilde offer personalised shower gels and more for discerning dads, for those dads who understand the importance of good skincare. Check them out. You will want to pinch these for yourself, they also come gloriously packaged and are heavenly to smell.
The citrus notes of the men’s toiletries took us to a faraway beach with white sand and blue seas. He won’t be disappointed. You can even add a photo of you and your dad so he thinks of you every time he washes his hands!
If you haven’t the budget for Button and Wilde (they are worth every penny), Lynx have some exotic scents out right now and seem to be going into the direction of skincare rather than just smellies.
MR NATTY WASHBAG
With his new toiletries, he needs a new washbag and we love this one from Psyche. It’s affordable, plain and simple while being a generous size. It has a place to hold keyrings so it can be personalised. What more does he need from a washbag?
For extras to fit in the wash bag you can’t go far wrong with Wilkinson Sword. There are some brilliant razors and accessories right now, that really do offer a superior shaving experience. Every dad needs blades, they can never have enough, so when you choose a razor, choose the latest from the Wilkinson Sword range. We tested them, and they’re more than good enough.
