Trend Expert Offers Up Father’s Day Gift Ideas

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Father’s Day is just a week away, and if you haven’t gotten your gift for Dad just yet, we have some great gift ideas for you.

Katlean de Monchy, editor-in-chief of Nextpert.com, spoke in studio with CBS2’s Andrea Grymes and offered up some gift suggestions.

Here’s some of the items de Monchy recommended:

Music Lovers

For dads who love music, the Phorus PR5 receiver powered by DTS Play-Fi is a great gift because it turns any home stereo into an wireless audio system. Now, Dad can use his Android, iOS device or PC to stream all of his favorite music, even services like Pandora or Spotify direclty to your home stereo using the Wi-Fi in your home. $179 at Amazon.

Eco-Friendly

A wireless solar keyboard is perfect for dads who want their tech to be eco-friendly and never have to worry about recharging the battery.  $44.99 at Logitech.com.

DIY Dad

DIY dads will love the Seek Thermal camera that they can simply add it to their smartphone to give them the power to see heat.

That means you can see water damage, air leaks, missing insulation, clogged pipes, even identify electrical shorts, loose wiring and other safety hazards. And imagine being able to see people and animals in complete darkness while walking in Central Park. Now you can. $249 at Thermal.com.

Senior

How about a wearable for those who need it the most: senior dads?  Lively is a stylish watch with 24/7 help at the push of a button. The setup is super easy. Just connect the cellular-connected hub to power the system without any home Internet connection. It works in the home or yard up to a 1,500-foot range. It gives Dad dignity and you peace of mind. $49.95 at MyLively.com, plus a monthly service fee of $27.95.

Tech In Apparel

If Dad is athletic or just likes to have the look of an athlete, these premium seperates from Rhone Apparel have unique Silver-Tech military grade silver woven into the garments.  The X2 Silver acts as a natural antibacterial agent that does not wash out after 15 to 20 washes.  So he can push the boundaries of his workout. $140 at RhoneApparel.com.

Outdoorsy Dad

If Dad loves to be outside  check this out: the Monster SuperStar Backfloat. It’s a rugged, wireless bluetooth speaker/speakerphone which is silicon wrapped so it can handle drops and falls and being submerged in water.

As it comes up, if it’s playing music with strong bass, it will make a “water dance.”  $169 at MonsterProducts.com.
