What Dad Really Wants This Year on Father's Day

 

We’ve compiled a list of the Coolest Gifts for Dads this year. We asked all the dads at RepairLabs what’s on their wish list for this Father’s Day, and here are some of the ideas that they gave us.

 

DIY Gadget Card - Free

Father's Day Gifts for Techie Dads, homemade card iDad

Dads love things you made for them. Even if you're 30.

A fantastic tutorial and a really creative idea for a card for dad that you can make yourself, with the kids. Look inside each of the “apps” to find a cute personalized message.  From Charlottes Fancy.com 

 

A Gadget Grip Mat - $11

 

Father's Day Gift's for Techie Dads Device Grippy Pad for Cars

The things he'll stick to this are limited only by his imagination.

BioLite CampStove- $129

Roast marshmallows and charge iPhone.

This little beauty also charges devices. If Dad’s a camper, this will be on his list. (It’s good to keep a phone around even when you’re unplugging-- in case of emergencies.)

 

 

Mouse Armrest -$30

Ergonomic Mouse Pad Father's Day Gift

Repetitive stress injuries are a real concern!

This is an ergonomic attachment for Dad’s office chair or desk. It will help reduce the possibiltes of bad posture and repetitive stress injuries from using a mouse.

This beautiful case also holds Dad’s credit card and ID.

 

 

 igrill thermometer and app $79

Just insert the probe thermometer of this device into the meat and use your iPhone or iPad to monitor the temp while you’re off relaxing with a beer.

 

 

LawnBott Robotic Lawn Mower $1199

We're just waiting for an iPhone app to control it.

It’s not cheap, but if Dad hates mowing, this gift may be worth it.

 

 

Laptop Desk - $25

Good for Dad, and the machine.

A Lap desk designed to keep you cool with special insulation that blocks 95% of laptop heat.

 

 

Custom Housing Color for his iPhone 4S $249

We <3 Daddy DIV Photo –Free

Father's Day Photo idea We heart daddy shadow pict

You are now dead of the cute.

We think it would be relatively simple to take some posterboard and an iPhone and shoot this picture on a sunny afternoon. If my calculations are correct, the kids need to hold the signs upside down.  You stand facing them. Print it on photo stock pop it in a frame for his desk at work ~and  best part, it’s Dad’s favorite gift of all.  Laurie, the fantastic blogger  at Tip Junkie , provided this great picture, but was unable to find the source of this beautiful  image.

Hope these ideas get you going to show Dad how great he really is.
