5 Gift Ideas for Dad from Best Buy this Father's Day

This is a sponsored post.

In two weeks, we'll be celebrating Father's Day. I've been busy wracking my brain for gifts. Tomorrow I'll be sharing ideas for handmade gifts your kids can make to celebrate dad, but if your kids are older and/or maybe not into crafting, then perhaps you might prefer to think about what gifts you can buy for papi. 

My daughter likes to make handmade gifts, but my son not so much. So we decided to review the Gift Center that Best Buy has set up for Father's Day this year.  We quickly decided that the best category that fit dad best was the Fitness Fanatic because despite the fact that we're all getting older and our bodies no longer do everything we'd like them to without complaining, my husband is pretty physical and loves sports, camping, hiking and other activities that take him outside.

The Best Buy Gift Center is set up with the following categories:

Gizmo Guru  The dad that always wants to take his tech to the next level with the latest and greatest – always connected, at home and on the go.

Entertainer – The dad who aspires to set up the ultimate man cave complete with gaming, sports, movies, listing to music, or just hanging out.
Fitness Fanatic  The dad who doesn’t let age slow him down.  He has no fear and loves adventure, but aspires to be/keep healthy as well.

Memory Maker  The Dad that makes sure that not only all the memories are captured and stored (video/photo) but keeps the family organized and under control.

Five of my favorite gifts for dads are:

GoPro - Hero3+ Black Edition Camera - 

(Can you tell I really want this for my family? It was on my short list for Mother's Day, too.) We're talking heavy duty, people. Waterproof, auto low light mode, wide angle know. All those things you need when you have kids who like to go on adventures with you. You can shoot pictures or videos with this baby. I can't imagine any dad not liking this gift.

Apple TV - $93 (on sale)

Just connect to the Internet and stream movies, listen to music, and access a wide variety of other content. We'd watch educational shows, of course!

Stone Bake Pizza Oven - $80

Because daddy can cook, too! Really. You can, Honey. This one even cooks frozen and fresh pizzas.

InvisibleSHIELD Glass Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy S 5 Cell Phones
 - $40

Because my husband is fire on cell phones. He has a physically demanding job and is always dropping/scratching/chipping his phone. Really, ANY screen protector is great for whichever type of phone your husband has. (This is my favorite gift under $50, but I also really like the Cobra - 16-Mile 22-Channel FRS/GMRS 2-Way Radios on sale for $29.)

Epson - PowerLite Home Cinema 2030 2D/3D 1080p 3LCD Projector

 - $850

I admit it. I want this one for us all. I've always wanted to host summer movies outside at our house and invite all of our homeschooling friends over.
