Great Father’s Day Tech Gifts for your Dad in 2021


It’s the season to celebrate father figures and scholars! So, if you’re stumped on what to buy dad for Father’s Day or get for that recent grad in your life, we’ve got a few Father’s Day Gifts suggestions that’ll help you and them save money while they enjoy their favorite TV shows!

Tablo Cord Cutting Deals and Gifts for Dads & Grads

Give Free Live TV – Antennas Direct Over-the-Air TV Antennas:Antennas Direct Antenna

Cable TV is way too expensive, even more so if you’re a recent grad with student loans to pay off. While your grad is probably already ‘borrowing’ your Netflix credentials, an Over-the-Air TV antenna like the ones from Antennas Direct are a great way for them to get free live, local programming including reality TV shows, sports and sitcoms.

Best of all, OTA antennas are compatible with any television set!

Save 20% OFF select Antennas Direct antennas and accessories with the code FORDAD at checkout.

Give a Simple Yet Powerful Media Streamer – Roku Express 4K+/Roku Ultra:Roku Express 4K Plus

Want to introduce your dad to streaming TV? Does your recent grad need a cheap way to make a dumb TV smart? If so, a Roku Express 4K+ is a great and super affordable way to go. This version includes TV and volume controls right on the remote, has better WiFi capabilities than cheaper Roku models and supports 4K and HDR.

Or splurge on the top-of-the line Roku Ultra which includes even more features including a headphone jack for private listening and a lost remote finder.

The Roku Express 4K+ is regularly just $39.99 USD but you can save $30 off the Roku Ultra, now just $69.99 USD.

Give a Smart TV Without Breaking the Bank – Fire TV Edition Smart TVs:Amazon Fire TV Edition Smart TV Deals

Televisions with Amazon Fire TV built right in are an especially great choice for small spaces like bedrooms, dad’s workshop, or a recent grad’s first apartment. Just plug the TV in, connect it to WiFi and they’ll be streaming in no time.

Thanks to a pre-Prime Day deal, you can save $70 off either a 24” Fire TV edition Smart TV (now just $99.99 USD) or a larger 32” screen (now just $129.99 USD).

Give a Home Network Upgrade – TPLink Archer AX21 Router:TPLink Archer WiFi 6

A new, high-quality WiFi router will help ensure buffer-free TV streaming, fast downloads and solid connectivity for smart home devices and even help prevent frozen faces on that next family zoom call. This TPLink model is compatible with the latest WiFi 6 standard and will surely beat the performance of whatever clunker of a router Dad is paying big bucks to rent from his ISP.

Get the future-proof TPLink Archer AX21 router for just $89.99 USD, a discount of $10.

We hope these great Father’s Day Gifts ideas will help you save a few bucks and make your dad or grad’s day!
