Techie Gifts For Dads

Here’s what I do know about most guys, including mine, that they love their techie gifts and sharing it with others.  For instance, I suppose I shouldn’t get embarrassed when my hubby is walking around the grocery store with his new bluetooth headset, and pretending like he is listening to what I’m saying.  Or, how every time he opens a gadget package, he reverts to a little boy, with big ole eyes, a huge smile, and starry gaze.  LOL

 

In fact, his love of techie gadgets goes back a long way…..here’s my guy in high school wearing a Sony Walkman from 1984!   Seriously, it amazes me how far we have come in technology!  🙂

So, if you have one of these kind of guys in your life, whether it be a father, hubby, step-dad, brother, son, or friend, it’s ok, because they truly are a blessing, that work hard to take care of all of us, and they deserve a little time to play.  So, in honor of Fathers Day, I thought that I would share some of the recent techie gifts that my guy had to have, or REALLY wants in the future.  Check them out below:

 

 

Headphones

 

 

Headphones have come a long way, you can get them wired, wireless, in the ear, over the ear, with mics, waterproof, sports, and even in a knit hat like this one on Amazon.  ($28)  The best part is that all of the bluetooth headsets connect to your music apps on your phone or player, so that you can get your custom groove on.  Work it now!

My hubby and I like to go to the gym or walk outside, but we both prefer different types of headphones.  He likes these wireless, around the ear headphones such as the ones below.  ($69-$100)

He doesn’t like the wireless, in the ear buds like I do, but if you’re looking for a quality set, with super sound and price, here’s my suggestion for around $22 at Amazon.  

     

 

 

SoundPEATS Bluetooth Wireless In-ear Stereo Earbuds

 

 

SoundPEATS QY7 V4.1 Bluetooth Mini Lightweight Wireless Stereo Sports Headphone

 

 

Activity Sports Watch

 

 

We are in our late 40’s and getting and staying fit is really important for both of us, and I know there are a lot of guys out there, no matter what age they are, feel the same way.  The biggest trend at the moment is getting a Apple Sports Watch, which runs around $299 and up!  If you like all the bells & whistles then please go for the Apple watch, but if your on a budget, and want a super, smart, sports watch, without the hefty price tag, the Fitbit Blaze for around $199 is the next best choice.

My guy is always on go, partly because he is a petroleum tanker driver, and an avid fisherman.  I bought this Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker for him this last Christmas and he loves it.  It’s just the right size, with quality sound, and perfect for when he’s in his truck or out on the boat.  ($100-120) 

 

 

And finally…..if your guy is truly a gadget geek then a tablet is a must have.  We both have iPad’s and love them, but he really likes to watch movies on our Amazon Fire HD 6, and if I need a larger tablet, the Fire HD 10, is next on our list.  It’s got a large viewing screen, plenty of speed, and for only $229 a super price.  Besides, we have Amazon Prime and love how easy it is to use these benefits with this tablet.

I could possibly go all night about the awesome techie gifts out there for Dad’s, because let’s face it, there’s gaming, tools, computers, action cameras, shavers, and even fancy dancy toothbrushes!  

Geez…..   I also know that whatever you find, you will keep in mind, how special each and every one of them are, and if all you have to give is a simple hug, they will surely appreciate that too!  Thank you to all the Dad’s out there, and Happy Father’s Day!

Retro Swimsuits For Me Please

If your like me, I have all kinds of mixed emotions when it comes to buying a swimsuit.  First of all, I love water and water activities, probably just as much as the kids do.  So, not wearing a swimsuit, because I’m not 100% happy with my body is not an option.  So, I am thrilled that there are a ton of swimsuit selections out there for us curvy divas who like to actually swim, and retro seems to be the swimsuit style for me.   I love how these suits can cover the areas that I’m most concerned about, and since I’m pear-shaped, I like to have a little extra cover on my butt & thighs.   Awww…..heck who am I kidding, I would say no matter what size you are, most ladies like a little coverage in the arse.  LOL  So, below are some retro suits that I think are made to play in the water, and look good while you’re at it.        

 

Retro Vintage Polka Dot One Piece

I don’t know about you, but I love me some polka dots!  And, when you add a flattering halter top, and flirty skirt it makes the perfect swimsuit for those curves.  This retro one piece beauty is only $25, and available with Prime two-day shipping on Amazon.  

 

(Just so you know…..you can now pay for Amazon Prime on a monthly basis.  $10.99 a month, or $99 a year, it just depends on how much you shop here.  

(I shop at Amazon a ton, I also enjoy the music, movies, and digital books, so a yearly membership makes more sense for my family and me)!
