Father’s Day happens every year, but like clockwork, we wait until the last minute to buy a gift because we have no idea what they want. If you ask him, he’ll respond with “nothing,” and there are only so many ties you can get a guy. So, if you’re struggling with what to get dad this year, we came up with a list of practical and thoughtful ideas. From a portable draft beer dispenser that is sure to impress to smart mug, you are bound to find the perfect Father’s Day gift for any dad in your life.

At first glance, it looks like yet another digital photo frame, but the newest addition to the Amazon Echo Show family is way more than that. With a 15.6” screen, he can use Alexa’s widgets to organize family calendars, create to-do lists, pair with home smart devices, play music, catch up on his favorite streaming shows and movies, and more. And, of course, if he wants to display his albums from Amazon Photos or Facebook, he can do that, too.

Transform dad’s kitchen into his favorite pub with this beer dispenser. This handy gadget converts bottled or canned beer into a rich nitro-style draft.

For the new dad who never gets the chance to drink their coffee while it’s still hot, this app-controlled coffee mug keeps their drinks piping hot for 80 minutes. The mug goes into “sleep mode” when it’s empty or detects inactivity for two hours and “wakes up” when it senses movement or when they refill it.
