Whether your dad is extremely tech-savvy, or simply doesn’t know where to start when it comes to buying tech for himself, look no further.
1. For the dad on the go: Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones
A pair of great headphones always make a great gift, and if your dad is constantly buying new music or simply loves to listen to podcasts on his way to work, these headphones would make a great investment. The over-the-ear cups are perfect for tuning out the world, and in our review we noted that the lush sound and excellent noise-canceling made them worth the buy.
2. For the dad who games: Nintendo Switch console
Summer vacations being in full swing may mean that the father figure in your life isn’t gaming as much as they might typically be. Give them the gift of new worlds, from Breath of the Wild to Ori and the Blind Forest and more, on an incredible portable console. As a bonus, they’ll also be able to use it with a TV if they want to play with the whole family.
3. For the dad who loves watching anything and everything: LG OLED C1
When it comes to investing in a TV, you want to spend your money on something that will last a long time, while providing top-of-the-line, high-contrast, high-quality picture. The LG C1 is one of the best TVs we’ve ever tested—the picture and color performance topped our tests, and the high volume of HDMI ports makes it perfect for gaming.
4. For the dad who loves listening to music: Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 headphones
Sennheiser is home to great audio equipment for solid prices, and if the dad in your life is a huge fan of listening to music or podcasts when he’s on the go, give him the gift of great sound with the Momentum True Wireless 3 earbuds. We tested the Momentum 3 earbuds and enjoyed their robust collection of features, including long battery life and smart pause functionality. But the best part is their sound quality, which is among the best you can find at their price point.
5. For the dad who loves golf: Garmin Approach S12 GPS Golf Watch
If the father in your life is looking to improve his golf game for Father’s Day (or you’re taking him golfing for the occasion), treat him to a great bit of golf gear in the form of Garmin’s golf watch. The Garmin S12 golf watch topped our roundup of the best golf watches thanks to its long battery life, lightweight design and accurate GPS tracking and capability.

6. For the dad who stays busy: iRobot Roomba J7+
Having products that optimize your time at home is essential, especially when home life and work life become intertwined. Enter, your new favorite home office member (and pet): The iRobot Roomba J7+. We recently tested the J7+ and we were extremely impressed with its excellent navigation and good cleaning performance. It also snagged the top spot in our roundup of the best Roombas.
7. For the dad who writes: Logitech G513 keyboard
If your dad has picked up writing as a hobby, or is constantly writing for work and laments the small scale of a laptop keyboard, get him a gift that will make him feel like a writer. Mechanical keyboards are great for writing and gaming, and of the mechanical keyboards we tested, the Logitech G513 Carbon Keyboard is one of our all-time favorites thanks to its durable design, satisfyingly noisy keys and customizable lighting.
8. For the dad who wants a new hobby: Canon EOS Rebel T7 DSLR Camera
Canon cameras are some of the best out there, and if Father’s Day typically involves getting the whole family or friend group together, commemorate the occasion by giving the gift of a camera. The Canon EOS Rebel T7 DSLR camera ranked highest in our roundup of the best Canon cameras for its fantastic image quality and lightweight design.
9. For the dad who wants to start streaming: Elgato HD60+ capture card
If the dad on your shopping list is looking to start taking his video gameplay to Twitch or YouTube, consider giving him the gift of smooth audio and video capture with the HD60+ capture card from Elgato. The HD60+ is our favorite capture card for its easy set-up and ultra-low-latency “instant gameview.”
10. For the dad who loves to share his favorite songs: Sonos Roam speaker
Nothing says ‘dad energy’ quite like a quick co-opt of a portable speaker during a family gathering. This Sonos Roam speaker with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is one of our favorite portable speakers—its robust host of features including its grippy, durable exterior and serious sound quality, make it perfect for taking along on trips, setting up on the patio and much, much more.
11. For the dad who loves Star Wars: Disney+
Obi-Wan Kenobi is out, and any dads that were previously unaware of that fact could be made joyfully aware with the gift of Disney+ for Father’s Day. The streaming service lets you not only stream the vast library of Disney and Pixar films and shows, you can also watch everything and anything Star Wars through the streaming service, including Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christiansen in the new series.
