Roku Ultra 4K Streaming Box for $ 69 ($ 31 off): If Pop already has a 4K TV, but has been put around with an old streaming box that is not capable of broadcasting 4K shows, it has squandered the full potential of its TV. Upgrade it to a 4K-capable streaming box so you can finally watch your shows and movies in 4K. This is the best and also has a headphone jack on the remote control so you can listen to TV silently while everyone is asleep.
Apple iPad for $ 300 ($ 30 off): It’s nice to have an iPad around the house. They are great for email, streaming TV, reading, and a host of other activities. There are more amateur versions, but the standard iPad is probably pretty good. This is a fairly standard discount price on Amazon (it’s more expensive than Apple), but we’ve included it because it’s one of those great tech gifts for adults.
Moment Starter Set with Two Lenses for $ 249 ($ 25 off): If Dad likes to take photos with his phone (and if he owns a recent iPhone, Google Pixel, OnePlus or Samsung), get this bundle from Moment, which includes two lenses of your choice, a case for the phone, a lens pen for cleaning, and a rear lens cap. The case is necessary when the lenses are mounted, so make sure dad has a compatible smartphone. I recommend the 58 mm telephoto lens and the 14 mm Fisheye.
Other great deals for Dad
Stanley Adventure Cooler for $ 60 ($ 30 off): Not all coolers should be made of metal and have an integrated sound system and cup holder. The Stanley Adventure is tough, relatively light, and contains 21 cans of a wide variety of beverages, including lagers, IPA, carriers and stout. Alcohol-free drinks, I think.
Brooks B17 Leather Bicycle Saddle for $ 104 ($ 41 off): Refresh Dad’s bike with a top-quality saddle. Always made in England, the B17 has been Brooks ’best-selling saddle for over 100 years. It takes a while to get in, but as one of WIRED’s bike testers, I found it more comfortable than the plastic seats that come with most bikes.
Allen Edmonds 30-Percent-Off Sale: For 99 years, Allen Edmonds has been making handmade shoes in the United States. Although some models are now made overseas, many of their best-known models are still made right in Wisconsin. If dad needs a big step up in quality over the usual department store shoes, consider flattening his feet and buying them a pair of AE. They will last for many, many years because they can be repaired and restored.
