Father’s Day Gift Guide + Win the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 Smartphone!

Because the gift of unconditional acceptance of the dadbod takes about as much effort to give as maintenance of the dadbod itself, you’ll need to do a little better come June 21. Fortunately, you might not need to put in all that much effort after all—we’re giving away the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3, one of our favorite smartphones to come out of MWC this year. Dad can use it to order more pizzas, the dadbod will be preserved, and the circle will be squared. If that doesn’t make for a happy Father’s Day for all involved, I don’t know what would.

But, as with most competitions of import, there can only be one winner of the big prize. Everyone else is going to have to put feet to pavement (or finger to mouse to Amazon) to find the perfect gift to fit the dad lifestyle. Don’t worry, we’re here to help with that, too.


Sena Ultra Thin Snap-On iPhone 6 Plus Case


Speaking of weight issues, we can say with some certainty that the iPhone 6 Plus doesn’t have any. It’s crazy thin, and this Sena case won’t add much weight or thickness—it will add a nice genuine leather back to dad’s phone, though.

Black & Decker Matrix 20V Max Lithium 6-Tool Combo Kit with Storage Case


Tools! For the right dad, you can never go wrong with tools. This set of cordless tools includes a drill, a jig saw, and a sander, along with an assortment of attachments. Perfect for DIY projects—preferably the ones dad is actually looking forward to.

Incipio OffGrid Shine iPhone 6 Backup Battery Case


The 3,000 mAh battery and hardened exterior on this case should ensure the iPhone 6 can survive a whole day of dad use.

Belkin PowerHouse Charging Dock Duo


For the consummate Apple dad, this charging dock can charge two Lightning devices lightning fast thanks to dual 2.4-amp/12-watt charging ports.

Knomo Troon Canvas Messenger Bag


For the mobile dad, this messenger bag is outfitted with slots for a 13″ laptop, a tablet, a smartphone, pens and pencils, pads of paper, and pretty much whatever else dad needs to get work done on the road, all inside a terrific canvas twill fabric exterior.

Fone Salesman WoodPuck Wireless Charger


This bamboo slab hides a wireless charging pad that works with Qi-enabled smartphones and accessories. Looks great, just make sure dad knows it’s not a cutting board.

Red Diamond Wine


As always, no gift guide of ours is complete without wine. This time, you can look to Red Diamond, a winery out of Washington State with a locally produced Merlot, Shiraz, and Chardonnay, all for just $10 per bottle.

Bose QuietComfort 25 Headphones


If you know dad gets jealous when he sees all the other businessdads on the airplane with QuietComfort 25 headphones, these will finally make him feel like he belongs.

Citizen Mesh Chronograph


Sorry smartwatches, when it comes to gifts, we’re still going with the classics—this Citizen watch is sleek, water resistant, and completely solar powered, making it our timepiece pick for dad this year.

Hedgren Brook Business Bag


Another pick for the business dad, this cavernous bag can fit all the tools of the trade and can be carried around however dad wants—across the body, as a backpack, or as a briefcase.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge


The Galaxy S6 Edge is undeniably one of the most highly coveted phones of 2015 – and for good reason. It’s sporting a unique curved edge display that offers beautiful vivid colors. Plus, it also has support for wireless charging. It’s available now from all 4 major carriers.
