For everyone, Christmas is a time for giving but not for dads. Dads give all year round and I believe that this Christmas, giving gifts to the dads will surely make them feel that they are really appreciated. And not just ordinary gifts but gifts that will be useful to them and that they can use every day.
Here are some of the gifts I listed down, well of course, these are also part of my wish list.
A smartphone is a very important part of every dad’s life. It keeps him connected to his family and do business with it. It is also a way for them to unwind when they are a bit stressed wherein they can play their favorite mobile games to feel a little bit relaxed.
Moreover, a smart phone is their all in one weapon when it comes to their daily jobs. They can immediately take notes of the important things in their work using their smartphone, scan work related documents, access any work related files remotely especially when it is connected to cloud and edit documents which are needed in their respective offices. They can do it anytime anywhere.
But what makes the smartphone special is that it can capture every special moment in their lives. So as for me, to save special memories, I would suggest the Vivo V17 Pro as a perfect smartphone gift for dads. It has a 8GB of RAM which is already powerful enough to do all work related tasks and play their mobile games and its 128GB of storage is more than enough to save all the important files that they need access everywhere.
Its 48MP rear camera captures everything they their eyes would want to, and its 32MP front camera makes awesome selfies that can turn into lovely family memories.
If the smartphone is important for dads, the more the laptop is, especially to tech savvy dads. As a digital media specialist, I spent most of my day in front of my laptop editing videos, writing important documents, and at time play my favorite Steam Games. For me to do all these while meeting quality and affordability, Lenovo laptops is included in my list.
If a laptop is a gaming laptop, I am sure that it can do other things such as editing photos and videos. That is why the IdeaPad L340 Gaming laptop is in my list.
Starting at just PHP 44,995, the IdeaPad L340 Gaming is a huge steal with its NVIDIA® GeForce GTX™ 1650 graphics card, which enables the device to handle most of today’s games with ease. It also comes with an ultrafast SSD option. Buyers can purchase the device with either a 9th-generation Intel® Core™ i5-9300H or i7-9750H processor. Both variants are more than enough to provide the optimal performance needed to support users for work purposes and the occasional gaming needs.
But if you want to give more power to the dads, there is the Legion Y540. It comes with up to 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD storage, up to 144Hz refresh rate display panel, and a 2-Year Premium Care onsite warranty. Dads can also enjoy hitch-less smooth gaming experiences, as the device is equipped with up to 9th-generation Intel® Core™ i7-9750H processor and up to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 graphics card.
And if you think that your dad is more of an artist, the Legion Y740 and YOGA S740-15 might be better for them. Primarily designed for hardcore gamers, the Legion Y740 is available with up to the ultra-powerful NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2070 graphics card and up to 9th-generation Intel® Core™ i7-9750H processor both allowing the rendering of graphics-heavy videos and images more quickly. Its light weight of 2.2kg also makes it easier for artists to edit their work on-the-go.
Meanwhile, the YOGA S740-15 has similar graphics capabilities with a 9th-generation Intel® Core™ i9-9980H processor and discrete graphics by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 or NVIDIA MX250 which has up to 3.5x faster performance versus Intel’s integrated graphics. One of the things about this device is that it can last for up to 14 hours on a single charge.
The Legion Y740 has a 144Hz refresh rate display panel, while the YOGA S740-15 has a Full High Definition VESA400 High Dynamic Range display enhanced with Dolby Vision™. Both laptops are optimized with 500 nits of brightness, which helps artists to fine-tune their content as it allows the screen to display images at the highest of qualities.
Huawei FreeBuds 3
For dads who are music lovers, this is another perfect gift included in my wish list. The Huawei FreeBuds 3 has a lot of features inside and that makes it a really solid pair of earphones.
Good sound quality and really great comfortable feel makes it stand out among other earphones in its category. It can be used in listening to music, watching movies on smartphones, tablets, or even laptops, and it can also be used to take calls while driving.
It has ANC (Active Noise Cancelation). Since the Huawei FreeBuds 3 is an open ear kind of earphones, there are times that external sound can still be heard by your ear, but then ANC is turned on, that’s the time you will feel the miracle.
Transcend JetFlash 910
Most techie dads are always on the go and wanted to be as portable as possible. Not all dads are comfortable in carrying bulky hard disk drive that may consume a lot of space in their on the go bag. That being said, the Transcend JetFlash 910 is in my top 5 gifts for the techie dads.
The Transcend JetFlash 910 is a Solid state performance in the USB form. The flash drive utilizes the latest 3D NAND technology for up to 420MB/s and 400MB/s read and write speeds and an excellent endurance level of 3,000 P/E cycles – the equivalent of MLC NAND flash. With capacities up to 256GB, the JetFlash 910 is ideal for storing a trove of 4K videos and high-resolution images, transferring them in a flash.
Transcend’s JetFlash 910, equipped with the USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface, can achieve blazing-fast transfer rates of up to 420MB/s. This means that files as large as 4GB will transfer in less than 15 seconds. The JetFlash 910 comes pre-formatted in the FAT32 file format for optimum compatibility, and in capacities up to 256GB, making it ideal for storing large quantities of high-resolution images and 4K or 8K videos.
These top three gift are the ones which I personally recommend since these are also among the gifts that I want this Christmas. Dads can use these gifts in everything they do and these will surely boost them up to provide more for their family.
