Netflix or Hulu subscriptions: we are living in the “Golden Age” of television, so why not get dad a subscription for a month or two so he can finally put his tablet to good use?

 

SlingTV: speaking of great TV, you can now steam live television for $20 bucks a month on SlingTV. You can get over 20 channels, which is great for those dads who are on the go and never get to watch the game or the latest episode of Modern family.

 

Fitbit: if you have an active dad, a Fitbit wrist monitor is a great gift to help count his steps, monitor his sleep and overall heath. Fitbit monitors are in the $100 range and above.
