5 of the Best Gifts for Fathers Day 2019
What is it: A Ring Video Doorbell with HD Video, Motion Activated Alerts, Easy Installation in the color Satin Nickel (and Black). With ~infrared night vision~!
Why it’s one of the best gifts for Fathers Day 2019: It’s basically, an upgraded doorbell that lets you see who’s at the door on an app on your phone AND talk to your front door visitors through the doorbell. And, like the Nest, it works with Alexa (in fact, you can communicate through the doorbell through your phone, tablet, computer, or Echo/Alexa). And again, it’s a way to get your house into the Smart-Home world.
What does it come with: Includes Lifetime Theft Protection (so if the Doorbell gets stolen, they’ll replace it for free). It has whatever you’ll need to make it work with your home, with or without existing doorbell wires.
What is it: The Oral-B 7000 SmartSeries Rechargeable Power Electric Toothbrush. You guys, it has BLUETOOTH CONNECTIVITY.
Why it’s one of the best gifts for Fathers Day 2019: Weird that his toothbrush is Bluetooth capable. BUT, there’s a not insignificant percentage of Dads out there who would be interested — even excited — at the prospect of a toothbrush that communicates with other gadgets in the house. It syncs with an APP on your phone, to give you FEEDBACK ON YOUR TEETH BRUSHING HABITS.
What does it come with: 3 Replacement Brush Heads. And a travel case. And obviously, Bluetooth Connectivity. By the way, it’s “Amazon Dash Replenishment Enabled” so it will remind you when it’ll order your toothbrush head replacements for you. Creepy, but also exciting, depending on the personalities of the Dads in your life.
What is it: A Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machine by De’Longhi, in the color Aluminum. It’s an easy-to-use and easy-to-clean espresso machine that works with coffee pods.
Why it’s one of the best gifts for Fathers Day 2019: Assuming your partner or husband or Dad or brother whatever guy in your life who has children and who will be receiving a gift from you this year is into drinking coffee and/or espresso, he’ll love having a nearly-instant espresso machine in his home or office. And this is a lot cheaper than a Starbucks habit.
What does it come with: Each Pixie machine includes a “Welcome Kit” (aka a sampler of all the Nespresso espresso capsules). Each of the espresso pods included in the kit has a unique aroma profile / flavor. Pro-tip: Yes, Nespresso itself sells the pods, but other brands make similar pods (that are cheaper usually) that are compatible with this machine.
What is it: Wahl Professional 5-Star Cord/Cordless Magic Clip #8148. Basically, professional grade, cord-free hair (and beard) trimming clippers. They’re described as being great for “Barbers & Stylists” and are considered “precision” clippers for fading hair. And, they don’t need to be plugged in during use, and offer 90 minute runtime.
Why it’s one of the best gifts for Fathers Day 2019: It’s like multiple gifts in one. It’s the gift of clippers, yes. But it’s also the gift of DIY haircuts forever.
What does it come with: The description says it includes “all accessories required for use,” including the cordless clipper itself, plus 8 attachment combs / guards, oil, a cleaning brush, instructions, a red blade guard, and a recharging transformer.
*Bonus: If you’re extra fancy, Wahl also has a professional grade “Limited Edition 100 Year Clipper #81919” available, which is much pricier and works with or without a cord. It’s also very, very fancy and shiny.
What is it: The Nest (T3007ES) Learning Thermostat 3rd Gen, Stainless Steel with Deco Gear 2 Pack Wifi Smart Plug
Why it’s one of the best gifts for Fathers Day 2019: First, it’s the most recent model of the Nest; second, it’s “techy” enough that it lets you do the whole smart-home thing; third, it can be somewhat easily installed as a DIY project, which is fun for some people (alternatively, you can do the install, and that’s part of the gift!). Plus you’ll now have the ability to adjust the thermostat from your phones (and from Alexa, if that’s your thing!), so it’s a gift for everyone.
What does it come with: The actual Nest Learning Thermostat itself (3rd Generation, Stainless Steel); a Base; an Optional Trim Kit; Mounting Screws and Labels; a Nest Screwdriver. Also comes with a Limited 2-Year Warranty. Also, it doesn’t come with an Echo, but if you get one, you can say “Alexa, set the temperature to 71 degrees” whenever you want.
So yes. Get Dad a Ring Video Doorbell, an Oral-B Electric Toothbrush (WITH BLUETOOTH!), a Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machine, a set of Wahl Clippers (Cordless), or a Nest 3rd Gen Learning Thermostat this year, and win Fathers Day 2019.
(Or, get him beer, and time with you and the kids. And/or a tee time.)
PS – As a bonus, get a Supergoop! Mint Condition Lip Shield — because everyone likes a fancy chapstick, Dads included. More shopping recommendation roundups exist — here’s a list of pregnancy essentials, and here’s a list of the top baby carriers.
