I was looking at Amazon’s Lightning Deals on Father’s Day Gift and realized that they were all remarkably similar in types of gifts. They assume dads like really, really like gadgets. Especially ones dealing with:
- Camping. And so might like tents and backpacks.
- Cars. They had gadgets I’d never even heard of like an Autel MaxiScan MS300 CAN OBD-II Scan Tool. (It looks up diagnostic codes that your car generates – in case you are wondering.)
- Tools. There were lots of things like strip nailer (how often would someone use this??), drills and band saws.
- And a few electronic gadgets (GPSes, heart rate monitors and Blu-ray players) as well as the token knife set and fishing kit.
But the one most attractive to kids shopping for their dads would have to be … the popcorn machine. (Luckily my kids do not have enough money to buy this one because I have no idea where we’d put it! The garage?)
So I went through the list and figured that I could find at least one thing appropriate for every dad I know. But they did not seem to be targeting every dad I know.
