A man’s house is his castle. And if your old man is anything like us, he’d prefer his castle to have the newest drawbridge and the slickest moat. This Father’s Day, add something awesome to dad’s pad by giving him one of these gifts. All will make his home just a little better to live in.


Nest Protect Smoke Alarm

When Nest released their thermostat, it made us rethink how exciting a thermostat could be. Then they went ahead and did the same with a smoke alarm. Not only can dad hush the Nest Protect from his phone, but it even tests itself so he doesn’t have to worry about it unless something is going on. Trading in the ear-piercing alarm for a friendly speaking voice, the Nest Protect won’t drive dad insane when he burns some toast.


Grovemade Walnut Laptop Stand

If dad plugs away at a laptop all day, consider giving him some stylish storage. Grovemade’s Walnut Laptop Stand mimics the slim, minimal beauty of many of today’s laptops and boasts an angled platform for improved ergonomics. Complementing the walnut is a stainless steel top that’s lined with premium vegetable tanned leather. It’s the stylish laptop stand designed with the same care and thought as his MacBook.



Dad’s WiFi is probably terrible, and there’s a good chance that’s because he’s trying to cover his home using just one router. The solution is eero. Three eeros cover the typical house and deliver a mesh wireless network that gets rid of dead zones and offers fast, reliable WiFi. Give the gift of less frustration this Father’s Day.


Leesa Mattress

Give dad the gift of better sleep with the Leesa Mattress. Designed with three unique layers to provide support, bounce, and consistent temperature, the mattress will deliver the sleep he’s been craving. That means more energy during the day and less tossing and turning when he kills the lights.


Amazon Fire TV Stick

How about changing the way dad watches TV? The Amazon Fire Stick is an affordable gift that will deliver over 4,000 channels, apps, and more to pop’s television. If he has a Netflix account but watches every episode of House of Cards on his laptop, consider transforming his TV for under fifty bucks.


FlashForge Finder 3D Printer

If your dad likes to tinker and build, give him the gift of the future: 3D printing. And when it comes to ease of use, the latest FlashForge 3D printer makes the future totally accessible. With it, dad can build all the toys, trinkets and desk doohickies he can dream up.


iSocket 3G

Dad doesn’t spend all his time at home, but when there’s a family vacation or business trip, he probably worries about it. iSocket 3G, the world’s first 3G smart plug for power outage alerts and temperature monitoring for fridges, fish tanks, and more, will give him some peace of mind when he’s out. The clever plug-in will fire off a text or call him when power fails or is restored. Less worries for dad when he can’t keep an eye on his home.



If your old man is an Apple guy, consider giving him the Blockhead charger, a device so simple, so clever he’ll wonder why it didn’t come with his shiny laptop. Blockhead snaps into his existing charger and allows it to sit flat against the wall, not stick out like an awkward white cube. Plus, when he’s doing work on the couch, he won’t have to move the sofa to make his charger fit behind it.


Juniper Books James Joyce Set

Juniper Books makes books that look great on a shelf. There are a lot to choose from, so maybe it’s best to find out dad’s favorite author before you take our recommendation. If you want to take a shot in the dark, we recommend the James Joyce Set, which consists of Dubliners, Ulysses, and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. The iconic reads get a sharp makeover that will be the highlight of dad’s bookshelf.


The Weather Station

For stylish practicality look no further than Best Made. Their Weather Station is just one of the pieces that prove it. Precisely crafted in Germany, The Weather Station contains a thermometer and hygrometer housed in a solid brass case. The simple to understand face allows dad to know how it feels outside with just a glance. Perfect for the dad who doesn’t rely on apps for everything.


The Floyd Shelf

The Floyd Shelf allows your pops to craft a shelf with a piece of lumber from Home Depot or a piece of salvaged wood. The clever brackets deliver a shelf that’s a bit more masculine than any he’d find at the local big box store. It’s a weekend project any dad can tackle.


Shinola Screwdriver Set

Shinola isn’t just bringing jobs back to Detroit; they’re crafting damn sexy products in the process. Take, for example, their Screwdriver Set, which is perfect for refreshing your old man’s toolbox. The USA 8650 Chromium-Vanadium steel alloy tools get a black oxide finish to add just a bit of style to an otherwise utilitarian set of items.


Work Sharp Knife and Tool Sharpener Ken Onion Edition

A dull blade is a dangerous blade. If dad’s knives, axes, and tools could use a sharper edge, give him one of the best items to deliver just that. This Ken Onion Edition of Work Sharp’s Knife and Tool Sharpener adjusts to handle everything from scissors to hatchets. If he already has every tool in the shed, give him something to sharpen them all.
