UScellular Shares the Top Tech Gifts to Buy for Dad This Father’s Day


Father’s Day is right around the corner, and it's time again to find the perfect gift. If you’re thinking of buying something extra special, you are certainly not alone. A 2020 survey conducted by the National Retail Federation found that despite the struggles COVID-19 presented, 75% of Americans still planned to celebrate Father’ Day, with many ready to spend an average of $148 per gift. There are countless options to choose, but one possible gift idea could be gifting Dad the latest wireless tech from popular brands like Apple and Samsung.

In fact, phones and Father’s Day are becoming more synonymous each year. In 2020, RetailMeNot found that while many dads are satisfied with a family dinner or gift cards for Father’s Day, 17 percent actually hoped to receive an electronic gift like a new tablet or smartphone. As more dads look to add to their electronics collection, a new smartphone or accessory for Father’s Day might be the perfect choice.

Here are some recommended Father’s Day wireless gift ideas, while helping shoppers stay within their budget:

  • Under $50: If Dad already has the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G, give it some added protection with the OtterBox Commuter Lite Case. The case features a soft internal slipcover but a tough exterior shell that helps protect dad’s phone while still being accessible and easy to handle. Besides cases, you can help his screen, camera lens and glasses remain dirt-free with Case-Mate’s CLEANSCREENZ Phone Cleaning Wipes before using a PopSockets PopGrip for a quick selfie with the family.
  • $50 - $100: Dad needs to have a constant connection, so keeping his device charged is as important as keeping it safe. The Ubio Labs 10,000mAh Aspect Wireless Portable Charger is ideal for quick on-the-go charging and features a built-in wireless charger, plus two additional charging ports. The Samsung Wireless Charger Pad Trio can also either charge two phones and a smartwatch or a smartwatch, earbuds, and phone simultaneously, ensuring Dad’s devices will never be without power. Another possible gift is the Anker Soundcore Flare 2, which can pair up to 100 speakers, features a beat-driven LED display and is waterproof, perfect for Dad’s latest pool party or camping trip.
  • $200 and up: Help Dad track his fitness goals and sync his favorite playlists right on his wrist with the Apple Watch Series 6 (GPS) or a Samsung Galaxy Watch3. He can also relax and tune out the world by listening to his favorite artists with a pair of Apple AirPods Pro or the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro which besides music, are also good for video calls while working from home. Just in time for Father’s Day, from June 7 to 27, UScellular is offering $150 off the Samsung Galaxy Watch3, and $20 off the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro.
