Roku Ultra 4K Streaming Box for $69 ($31 off): If Pop already has a 4K TV, but has been puttering around with an old streaming box not capable of streaming 4K shows, he’s been wasting all his TV’s potential. Upgrade him to a 4K-capable streaming box so he can finally watch his shows and movies in 4K. This one is the best and even has a headphone jack on the remote so he can listen to the TV silently while everyone is sleeping.
Apple iPad for $299 ($30 off): It’s nice to have an iPad around the house. They’re great for email, streaming TV, reading, and a bunch of other tasks. There are fancier versions, but the standard iPad is likely good enough. This is a fairly standard discounted price on Amazon (it’s more expensive from Apple), but we included it because it’s one of those great tech gifts for adults.
Other Great Deals for Dad
Stanley Adventure Cooler for $65 ($15 off): Not every cooler has to be made of metal and have a built-in sound system and cup holders. The 16-quart Stanley Adventure is tough, relatively light, and holds 21 cans of a wide variety of beverages, such as lagers, IPAs, porters, and stouts. And non-alcoholic drinks, I guess.
Brooks B17 Leather Bike Saddle for $100 ($40 off): Upgrade Dad’s bike with a top-quality saddle. Still made in the England, the B17 has been Brooks’ best-selling saddle for more than 100 years. It takes a little time to break in, but as one of WIRED’s bike testers, I’ve found it to be more comfy than the plasticky seats that come with most bikes. This price is a discount from the higher prices we’ve seen for the last year.
Allen Edmonds 30-Percent-Off Sale: For 99 years, Allen Edmonds has been making shoes by hand in the United States. Although some models are now made overseas, many of its best-known models are still made right in Wisconsin. If Dad needs a big step up in quality over the usual department store shoes, consider covertly measuring his feet and buying him a pair of AEs. They’ll last for many, many years because they can be resoled and restored.
Presto Dual Basket Deep Fryer for $55 ($45 off)—Click the Coupon Button: OK, there’s going to have to be some personal restraint involved around this personal deep fryer. Dad could be tempted to deep fry everything, and that will kill him. But I’ve found that it’s easier and safer to use a deep fryer than frying in an open pan, and nothing says summer like a season of homemade fried oysters and coconut fried shrimp.
