If You Are Tired Of Buying Dad A New Tie.. (Gift Ideas For The Nerdy Dad)



Running out of ideas for what to get Dad this year? 

Take a look at what I wouldn't mind unwrapping on Fathers Day.











  1. Star Wars Han Solo In Carbonite Ice Cube Maker

    This AWESOME ice cube tray from ThinkGeek is perfect for the Star Wars fan in a galaxy near you. Nothing caps off an evening quite like bourbon chilling on a nice slab o' futuristic coldness.



    Duracell myGrid Charging System

    If you are like me, and you have a lot of mobile devices, this charging pad (found at Amazon) can remove the frustration of keeping track of multiple charging cables. And the ability to simply set your device on the charging pad is extremely convenient.




    OtterBox Defender Series Phone Case

    OK, if you have kids, or if you are prone to dropping your phone on hard surfaces (both apply to myself) then you really need one of these thingamabobs. My old Iphone was protected by one of these, and it survived many a meeting with the pavement. Now if only I had put one on my Galaxy before I dropped it that first time....
    Found in a multitude of colors directly at OtterBox's Website, or your favorite online retailer.



    Wireless Earbuds

    Some of us really, really enjoy our music, and if you tend to listen to your favorite tracks while doing things around the house or at the gym, wireless is the way to go. Few things are as annoying as getting the cord from your earbuds caught on a doorknob or a preacher curl machine. These Sony XBA-BT75's will set you back about $150 at Rakuten, but who says you have to go for top dollar, or even name brand earbuds?



    Digital All-In-One Remote

    OK, so these things can get pricey if you go super fancy, but this Logitech 915 can be had for as little as $95 at AztekComputers. These remotes can control ALL of your devices, including turning  your Xbox 360 or PS3 on and off.  My brother in law has a Logitech Harmony One, and it instills a deep feeling of Do Want whenever I use it.

    So there you have it, if you needed some ideas for the nerdy Dad in your life, these might just help.


  1. These are all great ideas! How did I not know that # 1 existed? Too cool!

  2. I think I really need that ice tray. But I also know that my kids would forever be putting ice in every single glass in the house.
