Need Help Shopping for Dads and Grads? Check Out These 10 Tech Gifts from UScellular

CHICAGO (May 27, 2022) – June is filled with some of the biggest moments of the year, including Father’s Day and high-school and college graduations. With so many highlights to celebrate, finding the perfect gift can be challenging. Luckily, UScellular is here to help make your gift giving easier than ever.

If you’re thinking of celebrating that special Dad or graduate in your life by buying them a gift, you are certainly not alone.

A 2021 Statista survey found that 14 percent of shoppers were expected to buy graduates an electronic gift, while a 2022 National Retail Federation survey shared that $2.25 billion would be spent on electronics for Father's Day.

Here are 10 tech gift ideas for a variety of budgets that both Dads and grads would appreciate:

Cases & Screen Protectors

When it comes to devices, having a case is essential to keeping them protected, especially if your dad or grad are always on-the-go. The OtterBox Defender Pro Case offers a rugged but clean design while maintaining a comfortable grip. At the same time, no smartphone is fully safe without a bit of screen protection. The Gadget Guard Black Ice+ Universal Liquid Screen Protector keeps screens safe from scratches while being completely invisible to the naked eye.


Dads and grads of all ages use their phone for photos, video, work, music or shopping, so giving them an easy way to charge all their devices could be just what they need. The Samsung Wireless Charger Pad Trio and the Belkin BOOST CHARGE PRO 3-in-1 Wireless Charger can wirelessly charge a smartphone, smartwatch and earbuds all at the same time while featuring an elegant and stylish design.

Connected Home

Is your college grad moving into a new home? The Google Nest Doorbell is battery powered, wire-free and easy to install, and can alert them to visitors while providing an extra sense of security. The Google Nest Hub Max is also the perfect addition to any new home as it can make video calls, connect to other smart devices and act as a digital picture frame for their favorite photos. 


Wireless earbuds make ideal gifts for dads and grads of all ages. Whether your kid is heading off to college and uses them for their study playlist, your college grad needs them for video calls at their new job, or Dad wants to listen to his favorite podcast, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro and the Apple AirPods Pro are both great options.


Wearables are a hot gift right now because they can make calls, track fitness goals, monitor health, be a digital wallet and play music. If you’re looking for a Father’s Day or graduation gift that can do it all, a Samsung Galaxy Watch4 or Apple Watch Series 7 gives them the information they need right on their wrist.
