Dads are awesome. Dads deserve celebrating. But dads can be hard to shop for when it comes to Father’s Day! You want to gift the important dads in your life items that show your appreciation for all they’ve done over the years, but you also want your gift to be something they’ll get excited to use on a daily basis. You can do both! Here’s how: think about the activities your dad already loves doing, whether he’s happiest on a hike, cooking up a great meal, or tackling home improvement projects. Then choose a gift that can enhance his favorite pastimes.

Tech accessories are just the ticket! That’s why we’ve partnered with Verizon to match the right tech-cessory with dad’s favorite activities to make them even more convenient and enjoyable. Even better, these accessories are featured in great Father’s Day promotions running at Verizon. Get ready to score yourself the title of Dad’s favorite gifter this year!

1. For Sporty Dads: A Wearable Fitness Tracker

If your dad is happiest while hiking up a mountain, lining up for a hole in one, or hitting the gym, consider a wearable fitness tracker. The Fitbit Charge 2 is a surefire way to boost your dad’s game. With auto-exercise recognition and multi-sport tracking, the Charge 2 gives dads the gift of personalized feedback and real-time fitness stats.  PurePulse™ technology ensures continuous, automatic heart-rate tracking, going beyond a basic heart rate monitor by providing heart rate zones to gauge different levels of workouts and monitor resting heart rates. And if your dad needs a reminder to slow down once in awhile, the Pulse 2 has him covered with guided breathing sessions and sleep pattern tracking.

2. For Grillmaster Dads: A Durable and Portable Speaker

Give your dad a gift that lets him bring his favorite tunes to the grill station to ensure that every backyard BBQ is paired with the perfect soundtrack. The UE BOOM 2 delivers 360-degree high quality sound in a lightweight and waterproof design, making it ideal for outdoor entertaining. With a 15-hour rechargeable battery and 100-foot connection range, Dad can trust that this rugged speaker will never let the music fade away during those long summer nights. And he can DJ a block party by allowing up to three friends or family members to connect to the same BOOM 2 to create a fun summer playlist. Who wants to grill and chill?

3. For Home Improvement Happy Dads: A Smart Home Assistant

For dads who love home improvement projects, Google Home is a great gift. Any time dad needs help figuring out a detail while in the midst of a project, a simple voice command can pull up helpful answers from Google. Dad can also catch up with the latest sports and weather updates while he tinkers, or turn up his favorite tunes for the perfect DIY soundtrack! With far-field voice recognition and HiFi sound quality that can differentiate between voices, Google Home is sure to hear Dad even if he’s up on a ladder or under the sink.

4. For Travel Happy Dads: A Portable Powerstation

Gift dads who are frequent fliers the power of always being connected—without the bulk that usually comes with carrying multiple cords and chargers around. The mophie powerstation 10000 USB-C charges the latest type C smartphones and tablets at maximum speeds, adding up to 48 hours in battery life. The best part about this powerstation is its portability: mophie fits neatly into the palm of your hand or a pocket. Dads are sure to be impressed with mophie’s small but mighty stature and sleek aluminum finish.

5. For Garage Happy Dads: A Speaker To Amp Up His Workbench

You may not know what Dad is actually doing out there in the garage, but you know it’s his happy place. This year, gift him a rugged and portable wireless speaker for his workbench. The Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker II wirelessly connects up to two devices at a time, and the voice prompt connection allows dad to keep his hands under the hood while he queues up his favorite songs. Featuring a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the small but mighty SoundLink can play up to 8 hours of uninterrupted music, for even the most thorough of fixer upper sessions in Dad’s beloved garage.

This Father’s Day, show your appreciation for the important dads in your life by gifting them the best accessories to enhance all their favorite activities.
