Finding the perfect Father’s Day gift for Dad can be a difficult task. After all, what can compare to the countless memories you’ve made and adventures you’ve had together? It takes a special kind of man to be a good father, and yours deserves a special kind of gift.
There are a lot of paradoxes that go into finding the perfect Father’s Day gift. It should be thoughtful, but functional. It should be relevant to his interests, while still expanding his horizons. If you’ve been struggling to come up with something, worry no longer. Here are 6 thoughtful gifts that are guaranteed to be worthy of the world’s #1 dad.
My Top Father’s Day Picks
1. Protection for the Most Valuable Thing in His Life (After You)
For many dads, their relationship with their iPads is not unlike their relationship with the family dog. They might have been hesitant to get one at first, but now nobody in the family loves it more.
If your dad is the type who uses his iPad for everything from calling you to answering the front door, you might want to think about getting it some protection. Your dog got its shots, so why should your dad’s iPad have to go to au naturel? With a good cover like the ESR Urban Premium Folio Case, you can rest easy knowing your dad’s iPad will be ready for whatever his life throws at it.
*Available for the iPad 2/3/4/9.7-inch, iPad mini 1/2/3/4/5, iPad Air 2/3, and the iPad Pro 9.7/10.5/11.
2. Chargers as Dependable and Efficient as He Is
If your dad, like many others, only recently switched to a phone with a USB-C port, he may not be taking advantage of all it has to offer. Almost all of ESR’s USB-C cables are capable of fast-charging, so your dad can spend less time charging his phone and more time doing what he loves. If your dad still wants to put his old chargers to use, they also have a number of compact, convenient adapters that can convert old USB 3.0 and Micro-USB cables into USB-C ones! With their durable aluminum shells and nifty lanyards, your dad can attach one of them to his keychain and turn almost any cable into a working charger.
Best of all, all these items are only $9.99 from now until Father’s Day. Click here to check out the ESR Father’s Day Sale!
3. Help Him Get the Good Kind of Dad Bod
Whether your dad is a pickup football MVP or the type who prefers to sit on the couch with a cold one, it’s always a good idea to help him stay active. With ESR’s collection of affordable, high-quality athletic gear, they’ve got him covered.
I’d particularly recommend the new Mini Wireless Bluetooth Earphones, their best pair of wireless earphones yet. In addition to providing crystal-clear sound, its ergonomic design, compact size, and adjustable fit make it an ideal pair of earphones for working out. The earphones also utilize the new Bluetooth 5.0, allowing for a far more stable connection.
4. Added Convenience for his Commute
You don’t have to be a gearhead to buy your dad a car-related gift. After all, his car isn’t special because of some turbocharged engine or Corinthian leather seats. It’s the memories you’ve had with it that really matter. All the practices he drove you to, the road trips you took. It might even have been the car you learned to drive with.
If your dad’s car is a key part of your image of him, you might want to check out ESR’s collection of car accessories, which are sure to make his driving experience a far more pleasant one. The ESR7Gears Car Freshener, for example, comes with 3 low-key scents that’ll help wash away the smell of years of soccer practice sweat and road trip fast food.

5. A Wireless Charger for Both Technophiles and Technophobes
Have you ever noticed how all dads seem to fall into one of two categories? They’re either suspicious of any technology newer than the microwave oven, or the first in line for every new gizmo or gadget. If your dad is in the latter category, he’s probably already experimenting with wireless charging. But has he tried an ESR wireless charger? The Lift Wireless Charging Stand, in particular, will not only charge his phone 30% faster than most other wireless chargers, but it also doubles as a stand for FaceTime, watching movies, and more. It’s so convenient that, even if your dad’s a total technophobe, it’ll be hard for him to resist. If he still has any doubts, you can also tell him that it comes with built-in overheating protection, short-circuit protection, and foreign object detection; and is Qi, CE, FCC, and RoHS-certified.
*10W fast charging available for Samsung Galaxy S7 and above, 7.5W fast charging available for iPhone 8 and above, 5W standard charging available for all other Qi-enabled devices. QC 2.0/3.0 adapter required for fast charging, 5V/2A adapter required for standard charging.
6. Support His Phone As He Supports You
The ESR Metal Kickstand Case is such a perfect case for dads that it very well might have been designed specifically for them (you’ll have to ask their engineers). It combines the high quality he looks for in everything he buys with the understated creativity that characterizes his solutions to all of life’s problems. The sturdy, adjustable metal stand will allow him to convert his phone into a miniature TV wherever he goes, or FaceTime with you handsfree. This case is more than just a gimmick, though. It’s made of flexible TPU, which both feels great and provides better protection than a case made of hard PC or PP.
*Available for the Pixel 3a/3a XL, Galaxy S10+/S10e/S10/Note9, and iPhone 8/7/8 Plus/7 Plus/XR/XS Max/X.
