Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to gift dad new tech. Even the not so techy dad’s can be thrilled about the items in this list because they are that easy to use and set up.
We are working on moving our home over to “smart” devices and it has been such a cool process so far. I can’t tell you how much easier the Google Nest alone makes it for me as a mom.
It’s fun to share these items with the dads in our life. They are less likely to go out and get it themselves, but think these devices are so cool once we get them set up and show them how functional they are.
