Great Dad’s Day Gifts at Best Buy

disclosureMy dad is kind of tough to buy for these days. Honestly, he buys what he wants himself all the time so I have to find gifts that he will really like and use that he does not know he wants and needs. So this post is sponsored by Best Buy and they wanted me to share about gift ideas for Father’s Day. I was happy to accept but as I looked through the items at first I was not sure if my own dad fit into these categories, but then one gift stood out. Not that I didn’t expect Best Buy to have cool ideas, but I just was kind of like “cool, I really did find something for Dad!” when I was preparing the post. Plus it is under $100!

The latest and greatest gifts for Dad at Best Buy #GreatestDad  (sponsored) |

I don’t honestly know that I would call my dad a “Fitness Fanatic” but he is older and he does worry about his health and my mom’s. The NutriBullet I think would be a cool kitchen tool that he would actually use and enjoy. My initial reasoning to him, you know you kind of have to trick them sometimes, would be to tell him how perfect this will be for making thick milkshakes that he has always loved but that are hard to find at restaurants these days. Dad believes in the power of milkshakes apparently because whenever I was sick, no matter what the illness or injury, he always offered to go get me a shake.

After he loves it for making shakes I can actually show him how great it would be for making soups and sauces and salad dressings that he actually will like. Heck, I may even get him making some protein smoothies which would be great for him and mom. Hmmm, I’m going to have to think of a way he can use this to make something for his Pug, Mabel, too because he adores this dog!

Other suggestions in the Fitness Fanatic list include:

  • Jawbone – UP24 Wireless Activity Tracker
    I actually think Dad would really think it is cool to see his activity during a day and even his sleep patterns!
  • iPod touch 16GB MP3 Player (5th Generation – Latest Model)
  • GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition Action Camcorder
  • GoPro Headstrap Mount
  • Sennheiser Adidas In-Ear Sports Headphones with Ear Clip
  • Otterbox Defender Camo for Samsung Galaxy S 5
    My dad only uses a flip phone, but this would be great for my son to get for Hubby because Hubby loves all things Camo and he does have a Samsung Galaxy S5 phone!
  • LifeProof Bike and Bar Mount
  • Xbox One Console
    Dad actually loves video games but the system he has is pretty old. Hmmm, maybe time to upgrade?
  • Kinect Sports Rivals
  • Samsung Galaxy S5
    This phone would totally confuse my dad, but Hubby loves his. This is a great gift idea I think!
  • ZAGG InvisibleSHIELD Glass Screen Protector
  • JBL Charge Portable Indoor/Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker
  • LifeProof fre Cell Phone Case
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, 16GB  Black
  • Canon – EOS 70D DSLR Camera with 18-135mm IS STM Lens
  • SanDisk 32GB Ultra Micro Memory Card
  • Acer Chromebook – 2GB Memory – 16GB Solid State Drive
  • $50 iTunes Card
    This was another gift I actually thought my dad would like. He actually does have an iPad that he loves but I doubt he buys a lot in the iTunes store. If I gave him a gift card though he could get some paid apps, maybe some movies, and some of his favorite music.
  • Philips Norelco SensoTouch 2D Electric Shaver
    Dad only shaves in the summer months so this might actually be a good idea too.

Don’t worry if your dad does not fit into the Fitness Fanatic persona either, there are also gift suggestions for the Entertainer, Gizmo Guru, and Memory Maker available. Each suggestion list has a gifts under $50 and gifts under $100 too for those of us on a budget. There is free shipping on qualified orders from Best Buy and a low-price guarantee (I love that).
