    1. A phone camera lens kit so they can continue being the "cool dad" they are and document all of life's memories. This high-def, 4-in-1 kit will come in handy when they want to take some cool nature photos or perhaps some sunset pics for their new 'gram (that you probs helped them create).

    2. A Sidetrak portable monitor they'll be so grateful for when it comes to tackling WFH tasks. If they're always squinting and complaining about how small their laptop screen is, adding this monitor will elevate them to CEO status.

    This monitor has great picture quality with its HD, LED, and anti-glare screen. It has HDMI and USB-C ports and can work with a ton of operating systems like Mac, PC, Chrome, PS4, Xbox, Raspberry Pi, and Nintendo Switch. 

    Promising review: "This gadget has been a lifesaver! I give frequent virtual presentations and needed a lightweight extra screen that could not only move desk to desk in moments in a shared office space, but also go in a suitcase for travel. This is PERFECT! It’s plug and play — seriously. The portability really can’t be beat! I’ve recommended it to many of my colleagues. I’m thrilled with the purchase!" —Cooking Nomad

    Promising review: "The Alejandro Slip On shoe is truly wonderful! My reason for purchasing these was to have a stylish and high-quality leather slip-on shoe that I could quickly put on and head out. These truly are the perfect pair, and they look very nice with jeans, shorts, and even trousers for both casual and slightly dress casual moments. These are made very well and are very well constructed and also have a high quality craftsmanship that is needed for shoes like these. I feel that they will keep their quality for many years to come and will only get better with every wear." —David P.

    **It comes with a holding stand and a sharp knife.**

    I love giving this to my dad each year and it is sooooo delicious. The first year we got it from him he couldn't believe it and was like a kid in a candy store. He immediately plopped it on the counter and proceeded to slice it for the entire family to enjoy. I truly cannot think of a better gift especially since he gets to enjoy it basically until it's all finished up!
