Father's Day Gift Ideas for Social Distancing

This Sunday will be a Father’s Day like none we’ve experienced before, as some of us may have had to spend a lot of time away from our loved ones for the sake of protecting them from the coronavirus. Now that some of the restrictions are starting to be lifted however, there’s more activities that can be carried out, meaning more options out there for Father’s Day. We’ve compiled a list of our top three tech gift ideas that work while social distancing, so that your dad can make the most of lockdown this Father’s Day.

Wireless Headphones

If your dad likes tech (we certainly do), then why not go for a pair of wireless headphones? Wireless headphones are useful for listening to music while doing an activity, such as exercising or gardening. It’s great to be able to go round the house without the cable snagging on a door or cupboard handle, or having them yanked out of your ears. We recommend the Anker Soundcore wireless headphones, available to buy on Amazon.

Fitness Tracker

Now’s the ideal time to buy your dad a fitness tracker if you were thinking of getting him one, as Fitbit have recently released their latest Versa model, the Fitbit Versa 2. The release of this model has decreased the price of former models and fitness trackers from other brands, so you should be able to find a good deal. We recommend the Fitbit Inspire HR, which you can get from Currys.

Smart Speaker

Voice assistant and smart speaker technology has been around for a while, but it has taken off immensely in recent years with Alexa quickly becoming a household name (or even a digital member of the household). Rather than one of these products though, you could keep it simple and go for a waterproof Bluetooth speaker which would make the perfect addition to a summer barbecue. Sometimes it's better to just listen to music without someone interrupting to ask Alexa a question every two minutes.

A smart speaker that we recently gave away in our summer giveaway is the Anker SoundCore 2, available to buy on Amazon.

Whatever you decide to do this Father’s Day, just make sure that you stay safe and adhere to the social distancing guidelines. We hope you have a great weekend.
