Father’s Day is approaching fast, so you’ll no doubt be wanting to get yourself sorted with the best gift. If your dad is big into tech and/or video games, then you’ve come to the right place. Here at Game Revolution, we live and breathe new technology and the latest video game hardware. Here’s our Father’s Day Gift Guide for 2020.
AIAIAI TMA-2 Modular Headphones
The AIAIAI TMA-2 is a modular pair of headphones, meaning you can swap different components in and out for different sounds and purposes. It’s a unique idea that we haven’t seen anywhere else and would make for a really interesting gift. We were blown away by the TMA-2 Comfort Wireless, but there is a range of other configurations at various price points.

Amazon Echo Dot Smart Assistant
Digital assistants have come a long, long way in recent years, making our lives much more convenient. The third generation of the Amazon Echo Dot is what staff at Game Revolution use to plan out their days, set up calendar reminders, and handle music requests. A busy dad can make good use of an Amazon Echo Dot.
iFrogz Airtime Vibe Headphones
The iFrogz Airtime Vibe headphones offer good bang for the buck when it comes to a pair of ANC (Active Noise-Canceling) cans. With a battery life of up to 25 hours with ANC enabled (and 30 hours without ANC), it’s easy to use these all week long without needing to charge them. What’s more, they are sweat-resistant, offering an additional bonus for dads who are looking to keep fit.
Amazon Fire Stick 4K
Turning a “dumb TV” into a smart TV with apps like Netflix and Disney+ is as easy as plugging in an Amazon Fire Stick. Now with the 4K version, your dad can enjoy Ultra HD content which looks incredible. If your dad is refusing to upgrade his TV, then at least allow him the pleasure of Netflix binging with one of these cheap and cheerful gifts.
Apple iPad and iPad Pro
iPads have survived most other tablet devices, taking the crown as the best of the best. What’s more, there is now a range of iPads available to fit any budget. Your dad will no doubt appreciate the larger screen to help with visibility when compared to a phone display.
Oculus Quest Virtual Reality Headset
If you’re lucky enough to find an Oculus Quest in stock, you’ll want to grab it! Whether you choose to keep it for yourself or give it to your dad as a fantastic gift, the Oculus Quest is currently the easiest VR headset to use, able to wirelessly immerse the user into huge open worlds. It truly needs to be seen to be believed!
Apple Watch Series 5 and Series 3
Like the iPad mentioned above, the Apple Watch is now also less of a premium product, with Apple offering both its high-end Series 5 and lower-end Series 3. Both of these watches offer fantastic experiences when it comes to getting notifications sent to the wrist, exercises reminders, and other helpful daily apps. Your dad will love one… provided he owns an iPhone!
Sony WH1000XM3 Wireless ANC Headphones
If you’re looking to spend a bit more cash on your dad, then the Sony WH1000XM3 are arguably the best noise-canceling headphones around. These offer the absolute best sound in any ANC headphone we’ve tried. These will blow your father’s mind!
Mophie Powerstation Hub Battery Bank
The Mophie Powerstation Hub stands out as one of the better modern portable chargers. A big advantage here is its ability to be plugged directly into an outlet to recharge, with the attached folding prongs. Once its battery is filled, you can then charge devices at high speed and also through the wireless pad. It’s an incredibly versatile portable charger, which is exactly what you need when on the go.
HyperX Cloud Flight S Wireless Gaming Headset
If your father is big into gaming, the HyperX Cloud Flight S is a big headset highlight for us. HyperX is one of the most popular headset makers, and the Cloud Flight S has a special trick up its sleeve: it’s totally wireless. Yep, you can even charge it wireless using a Qi charger. Once it’s charged up, your dad can enjoy top-tier sound from his favorite video games.
SteelSeries Nimbus+ Mobile Gaming Controller
If your dad is getting into mobile gaming then the SteelSeries Nimbus+ is definitely worth considering. Designed for iPhone, iPad, and other Apple devices, the Nimbus+ provides a console-like controller experience that is sure to provide an edge in popular games like Call of Duty: Mobile and Fortnite.
Anker Wireless Charger for Desktop
If your dad is sitting at his desk a lot more, then you’ll want to do him a favor and get him a wireless charger. Have him ditch the cable and get a dependable solution from Anker. What’s more, the charger we’ve linked here offers fast-charging support, which will get that phone battery powered up in no time.
Ring Video Doorbell Pro
Ring offers a fantastic range of products to help users feel safe at home. The Ring Video Doorbell Pro will allow your dad to see who is knocking at the door before choosing whether or not to answer. Two-way communication will also let him talk to the visitor, even when he’s not at home. This is especially useful for packages that he would otherwise miss.
Nintendo Switch Lite
The Nintendo Switch Lite might sound like the “diet” version of Nintendo’s ridiculously popular Nintendo Switch, but it’s so much more. It’s lighter (duh), has better build quality, and has been slimmed down to look a little less ridiculous. What’s more, it comes in a bunch of funky colors. It’s the evolution of the Game Boy and allows access to a bunch of classic games. A Switch is a no-brainer gift for anyone really, including your dad!
Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Mouse
Our go-to gaming mouse is the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED. We’re now at the point where wireless mice offer the same level of precision and responsiveness as their wired counterparts. The freedom of no longer needing a cable is huge, so why not treat your dad to that experience?
SteelSeries Neon Rider Collection
If you’re looking to add some flair to your dad’s gaming setup, then look no further than the SteelSeries Neon Rider Collection. Designed as a collaboration between Red Moon Workshop and SteelSeries, the Neon Rider collection of mousepads and mice look incredible. The ’80s theme would surely be appreciated by a loving father, especially with neon-heavy games like Cyberpunk 2077 coming soon!
