One of the hottest gifts this year will be vehicle dashcams for cars and trucks. What is a black box dash camera? It’s a camcorder designed for vehicles that captures video and audio continuously while driving and then locks footage if your Dad is involved in an incident on the road. It’s designed to be his eyewitness in the event of an accident to prevent insurance fraud by unscrupulous drivers who lie to protect their interests and could cause serious problems for your Dad. One of the best and most popular models is the Falcon Zero F170HD+ GPS Dashcam which has all the best features and includes as a bonus a 32GB SD card for plenty of recording space. It activates automatically when your Dad turns on his vehicle and continues to record using loop recording technology until something happens and then it locks footage for display on a computer complete with location information. The camera is good enough to even see license plates and has great night time capability as well. Get him an eyewitness or co-pilot to stand up for him while he’s driving.
If you’re not familiar with streaming media players, they stream video through a set-top box from all the major media players like Hulu, Netflix, and 100’s of others. The Roku 4 is the latest evolution of this powerful technology and it now supports all the latest 4K Ultra HD TVs. With over 2500 Roku Channels to choose from, a faster quad-core processor, the latest 802.11ac MIMO wireless capability, and external optical digital audio support, it’s the top of the line in streaming media players. Probably the greatest thing about streaming media players is all the FREE content available. Your Dad can watch sports, movies, and his favorite old shows for free whenever he wants. Plenty of new content to choose from though including all the latest movies that he can pay for and watch right from his TV. Get him the absolute best TV experience available and hours of enjoyment.
The Antigravity Batteries AG-XP-10 is just one of a whole new class of jump starters that uses the latest lithium battery technology to provide big battery booster power in a compact and lightweight package. Now your Dad can get rid of his jumper cables in favor of carrying a portable jumper pack right with him. They are small and light weight enough to carry in his glovebox while providing all the power he needs to get him out of an emergency situation when his vehicle won’t start due to a dead battery. He doesn’t have to worry about being stranded in a dark, rainy parking lot at night hoping to find a Good Samaritan who will come to his rescue. He will have everything he needs right in his own car to quickly get himself back on the road again. This model is capable of starting everything from small cars to diesel engines to power sports vehicles and has lots of built-in safety features to make the whole process safer than using jumper cables. Give him this must-have automotive safety accessory and peace-of-mind.
Isn’t it about time you helped your Dad ditch that old computer monitor in favor of one of the latest models? The Dell SE2416H 24-Inch LED-lit Monitor is really the perfect size, will look great on his desk with a thin bezel and glossy black finish, has full HD 1920x1080p capability, and has the ports to support any computer he may have. It provides a rich, clear display from all angles and is great for text, movies, or surfing the web. He will be able to open it up, plug it in, and be up and running immediately thanks to plug-n-play video drivers and ports. Give him a larger, more capable, computer monitor to help him with everything he does on the computer.
Whether he has a workshop, needs to have a powerful way to clean out his car or truck, or is constantly working on his car in the garage, every Dad needs a wet-dry vacuum cleaner. The Shop-Vac 5986000 5-Gallon 4.5 Peak HP Stainless Steel Wet Dry Vacuum is one of the most capable. It features a great looking, durable stainless steel, easy-roll dolly wheels, long 7 foot vacuum hose, handy onboard cord and tool storage, and one of the industry’s best 3-year warranties. Lots of tools come with this vacuum including accessory filters, extension wands, and special attachments. He won’t have to work with that old vacuum anymore if you get him this modern, powerful, good looking replacement for shop, garage, or home.
Vehicle backup cameras will become mandatory on new cars and light trucks in just a couple of years, but that doesn’t help those of us who didn’t get one on their car when we bought it. If your Dad doesn’t have one, thankfully there are some great aftermarket models to choose from. The Pyle PLCM7500 Car Vehicle Backup Camera and Parking Assist System is very popular, gets great reviews, and is reasonably priced. It will not only provide a great view of the area behind his car or truck night or day, it also comes with built-in parking assist lines to help him park. If you’re never used them, it’s a great feature that he will thank you for every time he uses it. The large 7-inch monitor makes it easier to see all the details when backing up and could easily save him from a fender-bender or worse. Get him the peace-of-mind of backing up without worry of hitting another car or pedestrian.a
One of the drawbacks of the modern age of portable electronics is that battery technology hasn’t really kept up with the demands of these devices. Your Dad probably feels the pain as much as any of us, but you can do something about it. The Anker PowerCore 20100 Ultra High Capacity Power Bank is one of the most powerful and longest lasting portable power banks available. This latest model from Anker provides very fast charging in a compact power bank, enough to charge an iPhone 6 seven times or a Galaxy S6 five times before it needs to be recharged. It even comes with two USB ports so that he will be able to charge two devices simultaneously like his phone and tablet. It also comes with a one of the best 18-month warranties in the industry so he can be sure that it will last a long time. Get him something he really needs that will make his life so much easier and he will use over and over again for years to come.
We have entered the 4K Ultra HD age for LED TVs and you can give your Dad one of the best models at a reasonable price. The VIZIO M43-C1 43-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV is an amazing new TV with over 8.3 million pixels in every image, full-array LED backlight with 28 active LED zones, a V6 Six-Core Processor, 4-times the resolution of standard 1080p Full HD, and provides truly breathtaking picture detail and clarity.

Bring your Dad into the 21st century with a gift he’s sure to love.
Microsoft’s latest iteration of their Surface line is the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. It’s basically a powerful tablet, but by using its unique keyboard and multi-position kickstand it can easily replace a laptop for all the work your Dad needs to do.

If he’s into the outdoors, he really needs this camera.

If your Dad is like most Dads he probably has to lug around a lawn vacuum, blower, and find some way to shred leave and yard debris. All these devices take up space and it takes time to switch between them. What if he had one tool that was a lawn vacuum, blower, and shredder all in one?
