Cool phone cases
There's a healthy variety of cases out there, at least for the more popular smartphone models. Phone cases can not only add a more personalized look to dad's smartphone, but make it way more durable and even more functional, if they offer a built-in kickstand or wallet.
A phone case can not only be among the most affordable Father's Day gifts, but a highly needed one for most dads, especially if rocking a glass smartphone. Aside from the obvious drop and scratch protection, a case can hide the scratches on an already roughed up smartphone, giving it a whole new, fresh look.
Additionally, among the more unique father's day gift ideas is the option to purchase a customized case, with either a name of your choosing printed on the back, or an entire photograph. For this, check out: How to make a custom iPhone case
Anker SoundCore bluetooth speaker
Despite being so small that it's almost pocketable, the Anker SoundCore provides nice and loud sound thanks to its stereo speakers and a patented bass port. Great for camping trips and travel in general, or even as a main speaker in a game room.
Songs can be played easily over Bluetooth from a distance of up to 66 feet, with Anker promising a solid full-day battery life.
Amazon Echo Flex mini smart speaker
One of the easiest and most affordable ways to get the Alexa smart assistant in a home is with Echo Flex, which is a mini smart speaker that comes with a bonus Wi-Fi smart bulb.
Its small size makes it convenient to plug into any room, immediately providing a smart assistant for dads who prefer the more natural voice control over typing on smartphones and laptops, in order to use the internet for getting the latest news, finding out information, or simply for setting personal reminders.
A Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime subscription
What could be better than giving movie-loving dads an immediate access to both classic and new movies and shows? No TV schedules, no ads, just a wide range of great movies to enjoy in high definition, be it on a tablet, smartphone, computer or smart TV.
Subscribing can be done by either downloading the streaming service's app on the device it will be watched on, and registering an account, or online on its website. Subscriptions normally cost under $15 per month. Netflix, for example, offers a Basic (standard definition) $8.99 monthly subscription, while its Standard plan allows for watching in high definition and on two devices at the same time, for $12.99 monthly.
Anker PowerCore Slim portable charger
For dads who often run out of battery life on their smartphone while going about, or are into hiking, a portable charger could be a life-saver. Once charged and ready, the Anker PowerCore Slim 10000 holds enough charge to top up most smartphones twice.
It itself is about as big as a smartphone, so it can either be pocketed or thrown into a backpack and forgotten until needed. It's compatible with most phones and tablets, as well as other portable devices, such as Bluetooth speakers.
OlloClip Telephoto+Fisheye+Macro lenses
Dads remember the times before smartphones, when finally seeing your photos after waiting for them to be developed was an event. Now, thanks to smartphones, a picture shows up the second you take it - impressive! At least considering how things were just 20 years ago.
And while modern smartphones often take incredible photos automatically, being able to attach specialized lenses could give dads who are into photography a whole new dimension of creative freedom.
OlloClip lenses are of the highest quality and come for a variety of iPhones and Samsung Galaxy smartphones. This specific bundle offers a telephoto 2X lens, a Fisheye + Macro 15X 2-in-1 lens, and even a Bluetooth camera shutter.

Dad can also check his mail and connect with his kids and grandkids on it, thanks to its camera and support for many video calling apps. It's also well suitable for casual gaming, with a number of fun one-on-one multiplayer (and single-player, of course) card and pool games available, among many others.
