Father’s Day Gift Ideas For 2011: Tech Gifts Will Do Well

With Father’s Day looming we thought that we could give you all a helping hand by suggesting some gifts for him for this coming weekend. There are quite a lot of dads out there who enjoy technology related gizmos and gadgets so why not have a peek at some of these ideas and see if they fit your father.

If your dad is keen on reading then why not check out the latest in the Barnes & Noble line eReader, the new NOOK E-Ink touchscreen device. We have previously written articles about this device so have a look and then if this is the right gift then you can pick one up from the official website on this link. Alternatively you might want to look at its competitor product from Amazon which is a 3G Kindle.

Perhaps your father fancies himself as a bit of a photographer or simply enjoys taking pictorial memories at different family events so why not think about a digital camera. The first one that springs to mind is the Pentax Optio RS1500 which has a customizable chassis and is available for around $149.99.

Alternatively your father’s cell phone might be looking a little bit beaten up, AT&T recently tweeted that they have some great offers on different smartphones which you can view on this link. On the other hand if your dad is a bit of a gamer then there’s always the Nintendo 3DS that he might enjoy or even a Nintendo Wii that has been quite heavily reduced.

Something that is a pretty hot topic at the moment in the tech world is high quality headphones and these are sure to be one of the top sellers for Father’s Day. Some of the cans and buds we have reported on in recent times include the AGK Kleer Bluetooth set which are a bit pricey at $299 and the new Pioneer buds which can cancel out up to 90% of background noise! If your dad hates tangled wires then maybe the zip ear buds are the ones for him. Lastly and perhaps the pick of the bunch at $145 is the Pioneer HDJ-500T-K set that comes in 3 different colors.
