Then we grow up and those fun toys turn into clothes and appliances, and there’s a little less excitement.
By getting your dad a cool new gadget — like a new tablet or the hottest smartphone — he’ll have something to unwrap, open and play with all morning! Plus, you’ll keep him hip and can earn some major brownie points by showing him how to download popular apps like Candy Crush.
