Is your dad as hard to buy for as ours? Well, you've come to the right place for assistance in finding that perfect Father's Day 2019 gift.
We brought in the QUEEN of cool new stuff (remember these LED balloons?) — our good friend and Rachael's girl crush, tech guru Katie Linendoll — and had her break down four of the best Father's Day gifts for the pops who likes to play.
(Or possibly just for you — Rach asked John to save TWO of these for her birthday in August!)
FOR THE POP CULTURE-SAVVY DAD
Hammacher Schlemmer The Bluetooth DVD And TV Boombox
"I call this the ultimate boombox," says Katie, and she sure isn't kidding! Not only does this gadget — which, indeed, looks just like an old-school boombox — play music (via the radio or your phone’s music library), but it also has a 7-inch LCD screen for TV-watching! You can either watch one of the multiple channels it can access for free (perfect for watching the pre-show while tailgating, eh?) or you can pop in a DVD — something we're sure the little ones will love, too!
FOR THE MARATHON-RUNNING DAD
NOVA DryRun Men’s Jacket
This nifty runner's jacket will not only keep you perfectly dry — whether you're sweating up a storm or exposing yourself to the elements — but it also boasts strips that glow in the dark. That means dad will be safe while he's sprinting. (Need further proof? Katie actually used it to keep herself dry and illuminated while running a 10K in Iceland — on ice!)
FOR THE DAD WHO'S ALWAYS GOT HIS HANDS FULL
e-Motion™ Motorized Open & Close Compact Umbrella
By pressing just one button, the e-Motion motorized umbrella — the world's first! — pops fully open and closed, making juggling kids, pups, coffee, and the rain a whole lot easier. "Does Mary Poppins know about this?!" Rach joked. (We're looking at you, Julie Andrews!)

FOR THE NEVER-MISSES-A-GAME DAD
Under the Weather MyPod™️
Dads love to go to their kids' sports games, right? But how about when it's raining and pouring? Probably a bit less — unless, of course, you have one of Under the Weather's pods! According to the company, these babies can withstand freezing temps, strong winds, and heavy rain, making them the ideal choice for sporting events of all kinds — whether you're watching the pros or your little slugger.
