Each year the best Christmas gifts for Dad change or update and 2010 is no different. This top 10 list includes gifts that fathers really want in just about every price range.
1. The Sony Dash Internet Viewer:
Now Dad can cruise the net anywhere he can get a wifi signal without lugging around his laptop. This new product from Sony is really exciting and many Dads will find this device easy to use with its simple touch screen. The angular shape of this viewer allows it to sit on any table top. I think this may be the most exciting gift of the year.
2. Multiple Gadget Charging Station:
For Dads who have all the little techie toys plugged into every outlet around the house, this is the thing for him. It will keep dads devices neatly in one place and charging.
3. Mini Beer Dispenser or Kegerator:
Dads that really love beer on tap will love having their own chilled bear dispenser right at home or in the garage. Heineken makes a mini keg just for small home beer dispensers and the mini kegs can be found in most grocery stores. A kegerator dispenses beer from larger kegs and the variety of beers are endless.
4. The Dremel Trio:
No matter what skill level your dad has for fixing things around the house, this Dremel trio multipurpose tool will be sure to please. Its small and really easy to use making this tool nice to have around for quick fixes and small projects.
5. GPS (Global Positioning System):
A GPS for the car will come in handy for nearly every father and grandfather. The new GPSs are easy to carry and easy to use. Even the least techie grandfather can figure out how to use one and now Dad will never have to stop for directions again…oh wait, did he ever?
6. Multipurpose Solar powered charger:
These gadgets are becoming more popular as people become more aware of their power usage and foot print on the planet. The more gadgets Dad has the more energy he’s using. The average cost of one of these chargers is $100 depending on the output, manufacturer and accessories. These multipurpose solar powered chargers can charge most cell phones, iPods, Kindles, iPads, Nooks, laptops and some digital cameras.
7. Xbox Kinect for the Xbox 360:
Dad’s who love video games, technology and their TVs will absolutely love this new Xbox feature. What is Kinect? Kinect allows you to play some video games using your body rather than a remote. I have a feeling this is going to kill Wii sales this year. If your dad doesn’t already own an Xbox, the new Xbox 360 will be equipped with Kinect. For those who already own an Xbox 360, upgrade your Xbox and add on Kinect.
8. eBook Readers: Nook, Kindle, iPad, Sony eReader
If your Dad loves to read the paper on the train to work, one of these items is sure to please. These electronic readers can download newspapers by subscription making getting the morning paper a lot easier to handle. Ever try reading the New York Times paper edition on the subway? How about folding it back up neatly? Now it can be done with ease with an eBook reader such as the Nook, Kindle, iPad and Sony eReader.
9. HDTV Flat screen TV
If you haven’t updated your man cave yet with a HD Flatscreen TV, this gift will certainly please him. New HDTVs are available in LED LCD, LCD, Plasma and now 3D!
10. Craftsman tool chest.
For the man that loves do it yourself projects, a Craftsman tool chest like will be cherished. These tool chests come in several colors and sizes with prices to match. A Craftsman tool chest will organize his garage or tool shed having drawers of every size for small things including nails and screws; and large tools such as drills and hammers.
