For the father that likes to cook, get him the hottest kitchen gadget, the Anova Sous Vide. Sous Vide is a method of cooking that involves preparing food in pouches, submerged in water that's held at a precisely controlled temperature. To use a sous vide, he just has to fill a pot with water, set the desired temperature and time, and dad can cook everything (meat, souffle, carrots) to perfection. The compatible app allows him to cook remotely, so he doesn't have to stay in the kitchen, waiting for the food to cook. Dad will also have access to over 1,000+ recipes as well as videos and guides for each recommended meal.

That means it’s the perfect speaker if your dad loves to entertain, or if he just appreciates high-fidelity sound. He won’t have to worry about it getting knocked about at a party either – it’s durable with an IP56 rating and can withstand more than a few spills.

Does your dad often find himself searching for his keys before heading out the door? Then you might want to get him a Tile Mate Bluetooth tracker. It’s designed like a keychain and can be attached to a variety of items: keys, remote, or even the family pet (if it has a habit of hiding away). Clip it to his frequently misplaced items, so next time dad says “have you seen my…” he can use the companion app to help find it. It has a 200m range and the Tile Mate will ring out when he’s near the lost item.
Give dad the gift of home security with the Ring Video Doorbell Pro. The Ring Pro works with Alexa, and sends alerts to Echo devices, allowing you to hear and speak to visitors entirely hands-free. The Ring Video Doorbell Pro will also send alerts to his smartphone when motion is detected, or when someone rings the doorbell, so he can monitor the home from anywhere. The Pro model features advanced motion detection, with a camera view that generates motion alerts within user-set motion zones.
