How did we come up with this list of Father’s Day Gifts?

Father’s Day has always been a difficult time to find the right presents. For this list, I asked several men across many different generations what tech gifts they would want to receive. Some gave a disgruntled answer so I asked their spouse.

Each item on the list appealed to at least one father. Some wanted something that would last them a long time. Others wanted something that could help them relax while at home or on the go.

This list combines all of those ideas to suggest some of the best tech gifts for Father’s Day.
