Presented by eBay logo

Stuck on what to get Dad for Father's Day? To help you avoid the usual gift of socks and jocks, we've partnered up with eBay to help you find a gift that he'll absolutely love. With millions of items on offer, eBay has all the hottest tech gear to really make Dad's day.

Whether he's a gamer or a music lover, you'll find something to suit here. Best of all, eBay makes it easy to shop across a range of local and international sellers to get your present at the best possible price. You can use the leftover cash to treat him to lunch or an ice cold beer.


1. AirPods (2nd Gen)

Airpods

RRP: $249

If Dad is still rocking a pair of wired headphones, consider surprising him with a pair of AirPods this Father's Day. One of the most popular items currently in the tech space, AirPods will not only stop Dad from getting his wires stuck on every conceivable surface, but they'll also give him an easy listening experience that he's guaranteed to love.

The wireless earbuds will anticipate his every need by turning on and syncing to his smartphone as soon as he takes them out of their charging case and automatically pausing when he takes them out of his ears. He can even skip songs by simply double-tapping them and can easily access Siri just by saying, "Hey Siri" whenever he needs something. Nifty.


2. Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch

RRP: $469.95

If Dad is a bit of a gaming nerd, grab your siblings and pitch in to get him a Nintendo Switch. The Switch can be played both through the television and as a handheld device, so Dad can take it with him wherever he goes.

It also comes with two separate slide off joy-cons that you can use to verse him at Mario Kart whenever you're hooked up to the TV. They also come with wrist straps to stop you accidentally throwing them through the TV screen when things get too heated (banana peels, anyone?).


3. Fitbit Charge 3

Fitbit Charge 3

RRP: $179.95

The Fitbit Charge 3 is another hot commodity at the moment, making it a great gift idea for Dad. Not only will it help him on his fitness journey by tracking his heart rate and steps, but it's so easy to use that he doesn't need to be a tech whiz to figure it out.

The Charge 3 also has 7 days' worth of battery life and is water-resistant up to 50 metres, helping Dad to keep on top of his progress whether he's swimming, running, walking or biking.


4. Tile Mate Pro Bluetooth Tracker

Picture not described

RRP: $59.95

If Dad is always losing his keys, it's time to get him a Tile. This handy little Bluetooth tracker can be looped onto his key ring (or put in his wallet if he's forever losing that too) and can easily connect to his smartphone via an easy-to-use app.

The next time he finds himself patting his pockets in panic, he can simply press a button in the app that makes the Tile ring, alerting him to the location of his missing things.


5. Google Home Mini

Google Home Mini

RRP: $79

Whether Dad is a music buff or just a fan of smart home technology, he's bound to love the Google Home Mini. The tiny voice-activated speaker will do everything from playing his favourite tunes to telling him the football score, all without him ever having to leave the couch.

It can also sync up to a variety of smart-home gadgets including Google's own Chromecast, Philips Hue lights and home security cameras like Netgear's Arlo Pro and Google's Nest Cam.


6. Google Chromecast

Picture not described

RRP: $59

Speaking of Chromecast, these little devices make for an awesome gift if Dad doesn't have a smart TV. The compact receiver allows you to wirelessly stream video, music, photos and more straight to your TV screen, making it easy for Dad to show off photos from his latest fishing trip.

It's also simple to use – all he has to do is plug it into the HDMI port on his TV and connect it to the same Wi-Fi network as his smart device to get pairing. Easy.


7. DJI Tello Drone

Tello drone

RRP: $169

Is Dad a bit of a big kid? If the answer is yes, he'll love playing around with DJI's Tello Drone. The tiny drone is easy to set up, fun to fly and is capable of capturing some great aerial photos thanks to its 5MP resolution camera.

Gift him one of these bad boys and, not only will you cement your status as the favourite child, but you'll also create the perfect opportunity for some epic bonding time.


8. Kindle Paperwhite

Picture not described

RRP: $199 (8GB)

If Dad enjoys a bit of downtime, consider grabbing him a Kindle Paperwhite. The device can store a ton of ebooks and is compact enough to store in his backpack or briefcase, helping him to take a bunch of his favourite books with him on his next work trip or holiday.

The Paperwhite also features a glare-free backlight, letting him read without straining his eyes regardless of whether he's in bed or enjoying some much deserved time laying on the beach.
