Apple Watch Series 8
Why gift Dad an Apple Watch in 2023? It's not just a tech device that let him access his messages on the go, but it's also a gift that can help him manage his heart and lung health. The Apple Watch 8 has a number of health-tracking features, including an optical heart sensor, an electrical heart sensor for ECG readings, a blood oxygen sensor and a new body temperature sensor.
The Apple Watch Series 8 features the new S8 chip for improved performance and an always-on display. The battery life can be extended to 36 hours when in low-power mode. The Apple Watch 8 features a durable design and is swim-proof, dust-proof and crack-resistant. You can find it in four different colors.
Apple Watch 8 GPS (41mm), $329 (reduced from $399)
Apple Watch 8 GPS (45mm), $359 (reduced from $429)
Yeti Rambler beverage bucket
If he loves his Yeti cooler, surprise him with this new arrival. The Yeti Rambler beverage bucket with a lid and handle that's ideal for hosting, sitting around the campfire and more. It keeps a six-pack of beer or three bottles of wine cool. You can also close this beverage bucket's lid and use it to keep ice frozen for hours.
Available in four colors: navy, white, stainless and high desert clay (special edition). We like that you can add a special customized design for Father's Day for as little as $6 more. (The Yeti Ice Scoop ($50) is sold separately.)
Yeti Rambler beverage bucket, $150
Apple AirPods Pro 2
Upgrade Dad's AirPods. The latest Apple AirPods Pro 2 earbuds have an upgraded wireless chip for improved audio functionality, a new low-distortion driver for clearer audio and improved active noise cancellation. The Apple AirPods Pro 2 provide truly custom sound: You can use your iPhone's camera to analyze your unique ear anatomy and find the perfect audio settings for you.
The design of the AirPods Pro 2 is fairly similar to the previous generation, but Apple has introduced touch control to the AirPods Pro 2 to help users more seamlessly control their AirPods.
The best part? Apple AirPods Pro 2 have been reduced by $20, just in time for Father's Day.
Apple AirPods Pro 2, $200 (reduced from $249)
Yummly Bluetooth thermometer
Whether Dad likes his steak bloody or burnt to a crisp, this Bluetooth-enabled smart thermometer, with presets, timers and alerts for different types of meat, will take the guesswork out of grilling and make dinnertime less of a stress.
Yummly Bluetooth thermometer, $100
Apple MacBook Air laptop
The Apple MacBook Air M1 (2020) has a great-looking 13.3 inch Retina display. Dad will love that it's lightweight and portable -- and that it has a whopping 18 hours of battery life. It includes a webcam, so Dad can FaceTime with the family.
Apple MacBook Air M1, $800 (reduced from $1,000)
Amazon Echo Studio
With the Amazon Echo Studio smart speaker, Dad can stream his favorite songs, use the Echo Studio as a smart home hub and ask questions of Alexa. That means having his news updates read to him, creating shopping lists and even communicating with others by way of other Alexa devices in her home. Features Dolby Atmos support and spatial audio processing.
Star Wars x Echo Dot bundle
Is Dad a huge Star Wars fan? Amazon just released a series of officially licensed Star Wars stands for its fourth- and fifth-generation Echo Dot smart speakers. You can choose between Darth Vader, a Storm Trooper or The Mandalorian designs. Their eyes light up when the Echo Dot is placed in the stand, and Alexa's name is called (perhaps to tell a Dad joke?). The bundles below include a fifth-generation Echo Dot ($50) and the Star Wars-themed stand of your choice.
Amazon reviewers say the stand turns ordinary Echo Dots into a centerpiece for the room.
Darth Vader Echo Dot bundle, $90
Stormtrooper Echo Dot bundle, $90
The Mandalorian Echo Dot bundle, $90
If Dad already owns a fifth-generation Echo Dot, there's no need to pick up a bundle -- Amazon sells the stands on their own for $40.
The Landmark Project national park T-shirt
Does he have a favorite national park? Then gift him one of The Landmark Project's national park T-shirts. This is the Acadia National Park design. Shop all the national park T-shirts here.
The Landmark Project Acadia National Park T, $35
