Cool Gadgets No Dad Should Be Without


A necktie is the most popular Father’s Day gift — despite only 19% of men actually wanting to be gifted any sort of clothing or apparel. No matter the occasion, it can often be challenging to find the perfect gift for the man in your life. However, you can’t go wrong with a cool gadget that he’ll not only love, but, most importantly, use.

3D screen magnifier

With a 3D screen magnifier, your dad can say goodbye to eye strain or neck pain while he binges his favorite Netflix show or catches up on sports highlights. All he needs to do is place his device on the foldable phone stand and it’ll magnify the size of the screen. For example, the Dizaul 12″ screen magnifier for smartphones is great quality and easy to use. It essentially doubles the size of the image on your smartphone.

UV smartphone sanitizer

Mobile phones harbor 18 times more bacteria than toilet handles in the average men’s bathroom — precisely 25,127 germs per square inch. If a virus is present on the phone’s surface, around 30% will be transmitted to your fingertips, and in turn potentially spread to your eyes, nose, and mouth. Fortunately, a UV smartphone sanitizer is a practical and thoughtful gift that can help your dad maintain good health and hygiene. All he has to do is place his phone in the sanitizing case and the UV rays destroy germs, bacteria, and other microbes. The Casetify UV Santizier, for example, features six mercury-free lamps that work to kill germs in around three minutes.

Foot massager

More than three out of four Americans will experience some type of foot ailment in their lifetimes. If your dad spends most of his days on his feet, a foot massager can be a life changing gift. Foot massage boosts circulation, encourages relaxation, alleviates tension, stimulates the muscles, and often eases aches and pain. For example, the TruMedic InstaShiatsu+ Foot Massager with Heat provides a deep tissue shiatsu massage to relieve stress and soreness. Airbag compression, shiatsu massage rollers, and three different massage modes combine to provide a customizable massage.

Finding the perfect gift for the men in your life is seldom easy. Fun gadgets like a 3D screen magnifier, UV smartphone sanitizer, and foot massager are great choices he not only won’t expect, but will also get a ton of use out of.
