Does the date 19th June ring a bell? If it doesn’t, here’s a helpful reminder: it’s Father’s Day. So, let’s say your dad loves all things tech and gadgets. Perfect, because we have a few suggestions right here. From a smart coffee maker to a smartwatch, here are the 8 Amazing Gift Ideas For Tech-Savvy Dads This Father’s Day.
1) Samu Giken Drip Coffee Maker
Is your dad a fan of coffee? Perhaps getting him this semi-automatic coffee maker/machine from Samu Giken might perk up his day even more. It can handle not only one but two cups and it’s easy to use too.
Just fill the water tank with water, pour your favourite coffee powder into the filter and press the On/Off switch to start brewing. You can also use it to make other hot beverages like tea, latte or cappuccino.
2) Xiaomi Bedside Lamp 2
Not your typical bedside lamp, this is more of a smart bedside lamp from Xiaomi that your dad might find not only aesthetically pleasing (that minimalist look, though) but also its overall functionality. The latter is where the Xiaomi Bedside Lamp 2 excels the most. It primarily uses the soft LED white light but you can change it into different colours, depending on your preference.
You can even adjust the brightness level and finally, you have the choice to control the bedside lamp remotely using the Mi Home app. And yes, it supports voice commands too via Google Assistant, Alexa or Apple HomeKit.
3) Sony WF-C500
Whether your dad regularly commutes to work on an MRT or just loves jogging in the park, this well-reviewed pair of Sony WF-C500 true wireless earbuds is an excellent Father’s Day gift. They are lightweight and fit snugly in the ears.
Then, there’s the immersive sound quality with the help of Sony’s Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) and 360 Reality Audio. You can even fine-tune the sound via the Sony | Headphones Connect app. And the battery life? According to most user reviews, they can last around 9-10 hours on a single charge. Oh, did we mention they are also IPX4-rated splash-proof and sweat-proof?
4) Anker A3116 Soundcore Motion+ Bluetooth Speaker
Music-loving dads might dig this compact but feature-packed Bluetooth speaker from Anker. It comes in two colours: black and blue.

Using the Soundcore app, you can set your EQ up to your liking. Finally, it’s completely waterproof at an IPX7 rating, meaning your dad doesn’t have to worry if he accidentally spills a glass of water on the speaker.
5) Anker B2529 PowerWave II Stand
Let’s face it, most of us rely on smartphones to do most things now. Assuming your dad is a frequent or heavy smartphone user, this Anker B2529 PowerWave II Stand comes in handy.
