Forget the tie rack. This Father's Day, get your dad something he's going to love and use for years to come.
If your dad's BlackBerry has seen better days, you can leapfrog all of your siblings and become his favorite by getting him a brand new BlackBerry Priv.
All kidding aside, the Priv would make a great gift for any BlackBerry fan in need of an upgrade. Combining awesome Blackberry-specific features with an amazing camera and a slide-out physical keyboard, this Android-based device is perfect for a man who needs to take care of business, but also wants to kick back and play games or snap photos with the kids. The only problem might be trying to top this gift next year.
iPad Pro (9.7-inch)
Give your dad the gift of the latest and greatest tablet from Apple — the iPad Pro.
It's the perfect gift for any dad, because it's got something for everyone. Does Dad love to read books, magazines or comics? He's going to love how the True Tone technology works with retina display to provide a brilliant reading experience that's easy on the eyes. Is he looking to improve his productivity? The iPad Pro is powerful enough to handle multi-app multitasking. Whether your dad would use it for business or pleasure, this is a gift he'll definitely enjoy.
Get your dad one of the coolest gadgets of the year and he'll be the envy of every dad on the block. I mean, have you seen this thing in action? It looks amazing, and seems poised to completely change home entertainment and gaming.
What's more, it's also an investment towards family entertainment, because everyone's going to want a turn using the Vive. If you've got a computer that meets the recommended system requirements, a room that would be suitable for converting into the HTC Vive play room, and a gamer dad who's been dropping not-so-subtle hints about how cool VR looks, make it the best Father's Day ever with the HTC Vive.
Outdoor Home Theatre System
This is another one of those ideas that Dad's sure to love, and also a great gift for the whole family. Change family movie night forever with this two-part gift that will turn your backyard into an amazing home theater that's perfect for warm summer nights.
Camp Chef 120-inch Portable Outdoor Movie Screen
First off, there's the Camp Chef 120-inch Portable Outdoor Movie Screen. This thing weighs in at 44lbs, due to the 1.5 inch diameter steel poles that make up the frame, and includes a carrying case for times when you might want to bring it out to the cabin or to someone else's place. The nylon screen comes in standard 16:9 ratio, and can also be set up indoors if the weather isn't cooperating.
ViewSonic LightStream SVGA Home Entertainment Projector
We'll also recommend the ViewSonic LightStream SVGA Home Entertainment Projector. This powerful-yet-affordable projector features up to 3300 ANSI lumen brightness and 20,000:1 contrast ratio, which means the image will look great, especially after the sun goes down. The HDMI input is compatible with 3D Blurays, and includes decent built-in audio, so if you've already got a Bluray player, Apple TV, Chromecast, HDMI-compatible laptop, gaming system — whatever — you're good to go! Obviously, it can be used as part of an indoor home theater set up as well.
