Imagine gifting your father or husband a special gadget or gizmo that actually adds value to his life. We’re not talking about a mug that he’ll rarely drink out of, or a tie he’ll only wear once a year… NOPE!
We collected our favorite innovative items that will make him think, “How did they know I needed this?!” Here are 8 Father’s Day gift ideas that will help him streamline, organize and simplify his life in a jiff!
1. LIGHT LAPDESK
This iSkelter lapdesk is super convenient for dads that like to jump on the computer while they’re waiting for the kids to finish up practice, prefer getting work down at the local coffee shop, or tend to browse the web right before bed. Not only is it small and light enough to carry in a laptop case, but durable enough to support a heavy laptop.
This product / service is such a brilliant concept! Legacybox digitizes all those memories that are collecting dust in the attic in a super accessible way. A box is delivered to your door, you fill it with any type of camcorder tape, print photo, VHS, etc. and you hand it to your mailman. So simple!
If you have a suspicion that your father or husband has a secret anxiety that all his precious memories will be lost in one flash flood or spontaneous fire, this is a gift that will ease his worries. An excellent choice for the practical, sentimental, and slightly retroactive Father.
3. WATCH BOX
If your dad goes bonkers for watches, but doesn’t have a resting spot to keep them safe and sound, this watch holder from Bed Bath & Beyond may just be his new favorite thing! We like the simple design with a slight, rustic flair.
4. BBQ KIT
If the special Dad in your life is a tailgating, cook-out loving fella, this kit will make his summer a whole lot more convenient. Having a BBQ kit packed and ready to go at all times means that he will be able to have more impromptu cook-outs. Take it to the beach, your neighbors’ house, or even to your own backyard!
5. 2-IN-1 PHONE CASE
The HEX iphone wallet is getting rave reviews from one of our very own here at Simply Spaced. Our “reviewer” tested out several phone / wallet products and found this one to be the best. Why? The elastic strap closure was the selling point for him.
6. KEY ORGANIZER
If your dad or hubs is sick of jingling jangling like a collared dog every time he digs in his pocket or walks in a room, this sleek keychain design may be just the gift for him! The KeySmart files away all those keys in one compact unit, which makes life a little bit easier every day.
7. GOLF BAG ORGANIZER
Golfing equipment can be mighty difficult to store, and I’ve seen my fair share of toppled over golf clubs because of inadequate storage space. This golfing organizer from OverStock.com from is fantastic for keeping all his items easily accessible, and safe.
8. LAPTOP BAG
Truth to told, we have a big crush on the products over at This is Ground. This super swanky-looking leather laptop case has a slot for just about every item a man can have. We love that once this case is opened, every item is easily visible and accessible. He’ll simply love it.
