My dad is having a birthday next month but I don’t know what to get him.
It’s really hard to buy for him because he likes tools but he has everything! He also likes car stuff, but I have no idea what he needs or what would work on his car.
So I always try to find something that he will like, but it’s pretty difficult to do. Last year I entered him in a jelly of the month club, but that was a pretty lame gift, if I do say so myself. This year I really want to get him something better. I was thinking about maybe buying him a new digital programmable thermostat system or something like that. I read an article online the other day about different gizmos and gadgets that would be good gifts for dads and husbands. One of the things that they mentioned were these digital programmable thermostats or something called a smart thermostat system. With a smart thermostat, you can program your heating and cooling system with just an app on your smartphone. I like the idea of being able to turn my furnace or A/C off and on from anywhere in the world as long as I have wifi! But a smart thermostat wouldn’t be a good gift for my dad because he absolutely refuses to get a smartphone. He likes his old flip phone and so a smart thermostat would do him no good at all. The digital programmable thermostat system will probably be something he’d like and use, though.
