Dads are always hard to shop for. And when you feel like you’ve gifted all of the tools, ties, and mugs that he can pretend to be excited about, Father’s Day gifting can become quite the mystery.

Mom may drop hints about what she’d like, and you know she’d be just as happy with flowers. But dads will say something like “Oh no, I don’t need anything,” when you ask what’s on his wish list, because that’s just a dad thing to do. Helpful.

He raised you and saved your butt so many times, it’s time for you to make his life easier with the gift of Alexa voice commands. We’re sure you know where we’re going with this — Amazon is having a huge Father’s Day sale across all of its Echo, Fire TV, Kindle, and Cloud Cam devices, from now until June 16 at 11:59 pm EST. 

All are available with Prime two-day shipping, because Amazon knows we’re a bunch of procrastinators. Just make sure to order before Thursday night at 11:59 to have it for Sunday.

With an Amazon Echo device, dad can ask Alexa for a recipe or the time, order himself a pizza, organize his daily schedule, and control smart home tech like lights, thermostats, and security cameras. Now, he won’t have to get off the couch during the game if he’d like to adjust the house temperature or make sure he turned the stove off.

Amazon Echo products have what Amazon calls the drop-in feature, which basically allows you to call a friend or family member that also has an Amazon Echo device without them having to answer (the Echo Show lets you do this with a video call). Many customer reviews claim that this feature was very useful for contacting elderly parents who have limited mobility or short term memory as it doesn’t require them to pick up a phone or use any buttons. And honestly, it’s just convenient for a dad who forgets his phone in the car and accidentally freaks out his kids by not picking up.

Amazon Fire Tablets and Kindles on sale

For dads who could benefit from quick, easy access to the internet without having to lug a laptop out, a Fire tablet would be a perfect gift. Here, he can watch shows and movies, play games, take notes, and talk to Alexa, taking it with him wherever he goes. Fire tablets and Android are super customizable, so he can arrange everything just the way he likes it.

If dad loves to read, an ereader is about to be his new best friend. Kindles are cool because they feature the portability of a tablet, but block the glare from the sun. He’ll be able to keep the feeling of reading real, physical pages with access to thousands of titles, without needing to keep multiple books on hand. The battery lasts for multiple days, which is perfect for dads who hate the thought of being tied to a charger. That’s so millennial.

The 4K streamer can bring the power of ultra HD to his viewing, making sports and whatever weird shows dads watch even more intense and lifelike.

If he’s super into TV tech, the Amazon Fire TV Cube brings the power of completely hands-free Alexa and the clarity of the 4K streamer together for the most convenient hands-free binging experience yet.
