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.

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.

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.
