Tech gifts are always the best gifts because once you have them, you don’t know how you ever lived without them. Show dad how much he means to you this Father’s Day with one of these must-have gadgets.
Everyone knows that dad needs his beauty sleep, just the same way that mom does. This year for Father’s Day, give dad the ultimate gift of peaceful rest by gifting him an amazing sound machine that will help you both more soundly, and catch more zzz’s (we promise not to tell him that it’s kind of a gift for you both!) The Sound+Sleep SE from Adaptive Sound Technologies is the world’s smartest, and most advanced sound machine on the market today.
There are 64 unique sound profiles, so you’re sure to find the best one that matches your personality, and preference. Our favorite thing about the Sound+Sleep SE is the fact that the sounds never loop. You’ll never hear the same pattern throughout the night, and every single experience is unique. (IE: No two “thunderstorms” sound the same!) It also features a state of the art adaptive sound feature that adapts the volume to the environment around you. Does your partner have an especially bad head cold and suddenly snore like a lumberjack on steroids? The Sound+Sleep SE will adjust the volume to effectively mask the surrounding sounds, whether it be snoring, loud neighbors, city sounds, or barking dogs.
It features an optional timer available in 30,60,90, or 120 minutes, which will allow you to drift off to sleep and then turn off. Or you can opt to leave it on over night. The lighting on the front panel goes away when you’re done adjusting, so there’s no annoying light shining in your face.
Sound+Sleep SE has thought of everything; there is a 3.5mm audio connector so you can either connect your favorite headphones, or even a speaker to the unit. The Sound+Sleep SE also features two USB charging points, so you wake up fully charged, right along with your phone and tablet.

Nomad is the perfect gift for any Dad who cannot be too far away from his phone. Nomad as a company is much more than just another brand name. Their philosophy consists of owning fewer things, being resourceful and seeking adventure. The core of their product vision: creating minimalist, practical tools that keep us powered up when on the go.
While their entire selection of products is amazing, our two favorites for this year are the Wireless Charging Stand and the Battery Cable. The charging stand is wrapped in premium leather giving it a rugged yet refined look. It stands upright but packed easily for travel. With a high charge output, it will charge the iPhone X or the 8 without any problems. This stand makes it easy to keep everything close to you without any unnecessary cord hassle.
The Battery cable is hands down a phenomenal product. It combines a durable, ballistic nylon braided, MFi approved Lightning cable with a high capacity 2350 mAh portable battery. The cable will charge your phone first before then charging its internal battery-which you can then use on the go. This will quickly be the only charging device Dad will need for everyday use.
The Premium hands-free design will also come in handy too. Equipped with media shortcut keys are always within reach. They serve as both a wireless music headset and Bluetooth phone headset for hands-free calling. Thus, allowing dad to still answer calls and get work done like a boss.
