Father’s day is almost upon us one again and yes, we’ve got some suggestions other than socks and jocks for Dad. There’s plenty out there and we’ve collated a few suggestions in different price ranges to help with some ideas.

Let’s start with the Ring Indoor Cam (2nd Gen) which we recently reviewed. It’s a reasonably cost effective gift for Dad and provides some visibility inside the family home, putting minds at ease and giving a better sense of security and peace of mind.

Particularly if there are existing ring cameras in the home, then this really is a quick, easy and relatively inexpensive addition to your home security setup for $79.00

If Dad’s on the go and regularly runs out of battery, a Belkin BoostCharge Power Bank may be just the thing. It carries 20,000 mAH of power and delivers is at up to 15W to keep your mobile devices charged on the go. It’s something I’ve carried (in some form or another) for years now and wouldn’t be without one. At $79.95 it’s a bargain for the convenience of charging on the go!

Is Dad the type to get as organised as possible and label everything?

The Brother Desktop Label Printer is on sale at multiple online stores for under $150.00 and offers flexibility in labelling. There’s 3.5, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 24mm labels, built-in fonts, frames and hundreds of symbols to choose from as well as an automatic tape cutter.

What about a storage solution from Samsung; the T7 Shield. It’s lightweight, small and comes in 1, 2 or 4TB options with compatibility across PC, Mac, Android and multiple gaming solutions. With great read and write speeds, an external drive no longer needs to be a bottleneck for storage. You can check out the full specs or pick one up on the Samsung Australia site for $209.00 for 1TB, $349.00 for the 2TB or $649.00 for the 4TB.

Don’t forget your gamer Dad, with NBA 2K24 Kobe Bryant Edition (AU$90.95) now available for pre-order. You can do this online, or at your local game retailer. The new version promises the same gameplay that NBA2k fans know and love with new MyTEAM, MyCAREER and player options.

The NBA 2K24 options are available across Steam, PlayStation (4 and 5), Xbox One and X|S devices and I’m looking forward to spending some time on this when my order is delivered.

Finally, the fitness Dad is catered for too with Shokz OpenRun Wireless headphones. Featuring open-ear bone conduction technology, users can enjoy their media playback (music, podcasts and streaming media) while remaining aware of their surroundings.

Shokz OpenRun Pro are available in black or beige colouring for $219.00 or the OpenFIT are available for $289.00

As a Dad of young kids — while presents are cool… — all I really want is a sleep in and some precious family time.
