Each entry on this list offers something refreshing and new for your Pops, whether he just needs a battery pack or portable speaker for the golf cart or wants to add some cool smart tech upgrades around the house.

My top pick for this Father's Day is an Anker PowerCore 20000mAh Battery Pack (opens in new tab) because every dad could make good use of a quality battery that can recharge multiple phones, tablets and more on the go. For smart home upgrades, I'd recommend an Amazon Echo Dot with Clock (opens in new tab) because it fits with our self-imposed budget here.

Finally, I want to shine a light on the Chromecast Ultra (opens in new tab) which is an older product but still makes a great gift, even for the less than tech-savvy fathers out there. It's easy to set up and use and opens up a whole world of streaming options on any TV.
