Fathers are mostly contrite with their wants. They usually purchase items themselves as they are quite hard to please, especially when it comes to their own gadgets. They don’t open up and give hints as to what they want for special occasions, such as Father’s day. Here are some nifty options to give to them:
Hearth Rate Monitor Watches

For the fathers who are constantly checking their heart rate, this is a dream come true. Widely available in most sports stores or health stores, these pieces are great for fathers with existing conditions, or those who are active.

For fathers whose schedule is booked as much as The Backstreet boys concert back in the late 90s, this is a perfect gift. A simple yet savvy way of keeping up with technology without suffering the need to go back to school, PDAs are perfect in keeping schedules, taking down notes, sending emails on the go, finding destinations, and so much more.

For the artist dads, they will surely have a blast with a large surface pen tablet. It’s perfect for drawing comics, shading and coloring graphics. One may see this as an extremely expensive doodle pad, but for some people, this little gadget is worth the investment. A professional graphics tool, this adds charm and sincerity to the tag of father’s day gift.
Digital SLR Cameras

The ultimate gift for fathers who love photography, one can choose from a variety of DSLR cameras. One can get start-up models or you can go all out and buy the highest performance body there is in the market. What’s good about buying dad a DSLR is that you’re opening up avenues for gift ideas in the future. There are always peripherals that he’ll need like tripods, lenses, flash mechanisms, as well as photography lessons if needed. Here, you can choose from the big names, Canon or Nikon.
LED PC Monitors

PC monitors play a big part in one’s work schedule. Without it, dad won’t be able to work. So if he’s using a regular LCD monitor, upgrade to an LED monitor. Easy on the eyes, low electric consumption, and far more powerful when it comes to colors and resolution as compared to CRT or LCD monitors, LED monitors gives one the edge of ease. A hot LED brand in the Philippines is AOC. They have LED monitors that range from 17” to 24” and have multi functions like USB ports, touch screen, and eco-mode.
Digital Surround Sound

Because a big #1 Daddy in the World trophy is quite useless, not unless you are presenting it behind a brand new digital surround sound system playing the Highlander Theme by Queen. Movies will never be the same with these babies. Having friends over will happen a lot more as they quickly become the envy of friends. If this doesn’t top everything, there’s always the option of upgrading everything into a full-blown entertainment system, brand new TV flat screen, and perhaps a larger couch.
