Father’s Day is a great opportunity to show dad how much he means to you, and of course to send him a slightly sarcastic card too. But what can you get the Dad who already has everything, including enough slippers and ties to last a lifetime? John Lewis is here to help, with a range of techy Father’s Day gifts designed to delight every kind of dad – and to fit every budget too. Whether dad’s a trad dad or a digital one, a fitness fan or an audio aficionado, the perfect Father’s Day gifts are right here.
Gifts for busy dads and bookworm dads
If your dad loves great coffee, this amazing Nespresso Vertuo Pop Coffee Pod Machine by Magimix will make his Father’s Day. It punches way above its surprisingly affordable price tag, delivering intense espressos, lush lattes and creamy cappuccino to brighten up every day.
If dad likes to kick back with a good book while he enjoys his coffee, John Lewis has the perfect present there too: the 11th generation Kindle e-book reader comes with built-in Audible audiobook support, a six-inch hi-res illuminated touch screen and access to Amazon’s enormous ebook library.
Gifts for outdoorsy dads and sporty dads
If dad can’t wait to get his shorts on at the first sign of sunshine, an outdoor speaker such as the powerful Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM 3 is a great gift idea – and it’s waterproof too, making it the perfect soundtrack for the British summertime.
Another great present for outdoor dads is the brilliant Fitbit Sense 2, a superb fitness tracker and smartwatch with built-in heart rate monitoring for cardio, state of the art sleep tracking and a huge selection of health and fitness features.
A great option for dads who love to work out or run is a pair of dedicated sports earbuds. We really rate the Sony WF-1000XM4 Noise Cancelling True Wireless Bluetooth Sweat & Weather-Resistant In-Ear Headphones: they’re designed specifically for intense activity, and they won’t fall out no matter how fast dad is pounding the pavements or how hard he’s pumping iron.
Superb sound for dad’s record collection
Chances are dad has amassed an impressive LP collection over the years, and one of our favourite gifts for music fans is the Audio-Technica AT-LP120XUSB turntable. It looks like a normal turntable, but it has superpowers:its USB connection means dad can turn his vinyl into MP3 music files he can play on his phone or computer. There’s even a pitch-shifter so dad can work on his DJ skills.
John Lewis has some superb smart speakers too, including models from Sonos that dad can expand into an incredible multi-room audio system. The Sonos One SL smart speaker is a great starting point, and the Sonos Move is a fantastic indoor and outdoor option for dads who don’t want to sacrifice sound quality for portability. If dad’s a classic rock fan, make sure you check out the Marshall Emberton II portable bluetooth speaker: its black and brass design is taken straight from the legendary Marshall amplifiers that defined the sound of modern rock.
Great gifts for a great dad
These high-tech gifts are very different, but they all have the same thing in common: they’ll make Father’s Day a day to remember. And of course, because you’re buying from John Lewis you’re getting the benefit of John Lewis’s incredible customer service too.
Whether you’re looking to treat dad to a tablet, sort him out with a smart speaker or find the perfect fitness tracker, you’ll find it in John Lewis’s carefully curated selection of Father’s Day gift ideas. And if you do decide to go for slippers or ties, then John Lewis can happily provide them too.
