We know that every dad is different. There’s those who like to live in the fast lane, the ones who prefer a cinema experience at home and then there’s the ones who rely on the latest tech to level up their gaming skills! So, if you and the kids are still looking for that extra special gift idea for Father’s Day, here’s 5 fabulous ideas that we guarantee will get a thumbs-up from any modern dad.
For the petrol head dad…
Nothing screams “Happy Father’s Day” like giving dad the digital keys to a LEGO® Technic™ Porsche 911 RSR. Designed to satisfy his need for speed, dad can get behind the driver’s seat of this iconic replica using the Lego Technic CONTROL+ App and discover a host of functions including a visible, working differential, independent suspension and six-cylinder boxer engine with moving pistons positioned in front of the rear axle.
This iconic masterpiece’s interior is made up of an accessible cockpit that features a radar screen, working steering and even a track map of the Laguna Seca circuit printed onto the driver’s door.
Developed in partnership with Porsche, the LEGO Porsche replica captures the life-size vehicle’s powerful appearance with its sharp contours and aerodynamic detailing – with its rear wing with ‘swan neck’ mounts, extended rear diffuser and specially designed side mirrors and realistic head and tail lights making this the perfect Father’s Day display piece for the home or office!
For the tech-savvy dad…
Getting all his work done without missing a beat or disturbing those around him will soon become a reality for dad thanks to the Logitech M220 SILENT mouse. This mouse offers the same click feel without the click noise thanks to its noise reduction technology.
Its high-performance feet quietly glide over the desktop, while a smooth rubber wheel completes the silent experience with quiet scrolling.
Best of all, the M220 SILENT can go longer between battery changes thanks to energy-efficient engineering, which puts itself to sleep when not in use.
For the ‘big-screen experience’ dad…
Bigger is undeniably better, so this Father’s Day, why not supersize dad’s favourite movies with the Epson EH-TW610 Full HD 1080p Home Entertainment Projector. Its 300-inch display combined with Epson’s 3LCD technology is guaranteed to bring anything on dad’s screen to life. This projector is quick and easy to set up and is a long-term, hassle-free and affordable solution for watching movies or even playing video games and binge-watching those must-see series.
Connecting dad to his choice of entertainment will be easy thanks to two HDMI inputs (Including one MHL) for DVD players, game consoles and more. He can also project directly from a smart device with the iProjection app and the built-in Wi-Fi.
For the gaming dad…
Immerse dad into an environment where lighting automatically reacts to what’s happening on his screen with the Logitech G560 RGB gaming speakers. Designed to emit incredible sound and mesmerising RGB lighting effects, dad’s gaming will be more interactive than ever before.
The G560 speakers feature responsive LED lights that react to all the action that takes place on-screen and can even respond in rhythm to audio or deliver special lighting effects programmed by gaming developers with an impressive 16.8M customisable colours.
There’s nothing dad would appreciate more than hours of nostalgic fun spent recreating the classic Super Mario™ game with the LEGO® Super Mario™ Adventures with Mario Starter Course. This new product line from The LEGO Group features an interactive LEGO Mario figure who collects virtual coins in real-life game levels as he runs and jumps from the Start Pipe to the Goal Pole via LEGO bricks.
To truly bring this classic to life, the LEGO Mario figure features LCD screens in his eyes, mouth and belly to display a wide variety of instant reactions to movement, colour and action bricks. Also included is a speaker that plays iconic sounds and music from the video game series.
You can now pre-order the LEGO® Super Mario™ Adventures with Mario Starter Course just in time for Father’s Day here.
For the music-loving dad…
If dad is a fan of great music, then the Ultimate Ears Portable WONDERBOOM™ 2 Bluetooth® speaker is a must-have. This pocket-sized speaker delivers surprisingly clear, crisp sound and big, beautiful bass, making it the ideal gift to bring the magic out of music.
The speaker rocks a bigger battery, 360-degree sound, a high IP67 rating and vibrant two-tone fabrics. What’s more, playing, pausing and skipping to the next track is a breeze thanks to the speaker’s easy-to-use button layout and a wraparound speaker grill that creates an immersive music experience in a robust yet portable build.
This is one Father’s Day gift that’s designed to look good and sound even better!
