Dads can be hard to shop for. Not because their tastes are just so eclectic — although, that may be true for some dads. It's just impossible to narrow down the gift ideas.
Herein lies the problem: If you're buying a Father's Day gift for your dad, husband, or other significant man in your life, chances are you've bought them many, many gifts in the past. So what's left? A new wallet, a tie, some kind of tool, or golf clubs? Those gifts are great, but they've probably already been done a million and one times.
But don't worry, there's hope. Get him a gadget that will take one of his current hobbies to the next level. Of course, you can find endless gadget-y gift options on the world wide web, but check out this list for some immediate ideas.
