Gifts for the Tech-y Dad

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not very creative. I struggle at each holiday to plan gifts for my family and friends. I have to keep a running memo in my phone of gift ideas throughout the year, because otherwise I never think of anything.

With Father’s Day coming up soon, it is time to brainstorm gifts yet again! If you have a tech-y dad, or a technology loving husband, here are some great gift ideas to consider.


1. For the busy Evernote using Dad: Moleskine


Evernote is one of the most popular note taking apps, and this Moleskine is designed to complement it perfectly. Moleskines are beautiful, well crafted notebooks in general, but this one takes it to a different level. $32.95 at the Moleskine store.

2. For the active stylish dad – Fitbit Blaze


The new Fitbit Blaze in gunmetal is a beautifully designed activity tracker and ultimate smart watch. It features on screen workouts, heart rate monitoring, GPS, and much more. $229.95 at the Fitbit store.
