If your father spends most of his time on his lazy-boy enjoying the prime time lineup, then he would likely appreciate a few upgrades to his home theater. So this Father’s day, get him a gift that will help him maximize his viewing experience. For under $100, you can give your dad a gift that’ll remind him of you every time he turns on the tv.
Logitech Surround Sound Speakers ($90)
If your dad has never had surround sound speakers, this Father’s Day gift will let him know what he’s been missing all his life. He may never get off of the lazy -boy again, but he’ll be thanking you for introducing him to tv the way it should be. And for those on a budget, Target has a great inexpensive set of Logitech surround sound speakers for under $100. The set of six speakers and subwoofer can hook up to the television or computer and handle up to 140 watts.
Rolling TV Tray (under $100)
If your dad is a tv lover, then he probably eats most of his meals in front of the tube. And if he’s eating off of the coffee table or his lap, consider getting him a rolling tv tray for a Father’s Day gift. The TV Tray Source has a variety of models for under $100 that will hold your dad’s meals, drinks and tv guide. Your mom will probably never get him back to the kitchen table, but it will make him happy and that’s what Father’s Day is all about.
Entertainment Center (under $100)
You might like to get your father a new tv, but let’s face it, not every budget allows for a new flat screen. But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t upgrade the one that your father already has. An entertainment center can make a great Father’s Day gift and transform the living room into a proper home theater. It will give him a place to put his DVDs and pictures of the kids who love him so much. Check out Walmart.com for inexpensive and stylish models for under $100.
Microwave Potato Chip Maker ($16)
What’s an evening in front of the tv without snacks? Potato chips make the best tv munchies, but if your dad is watching his cholesterol or his weight, they can be taking a toll on his health. So this Father’s Day, why not buy him a microwave potato chip maker? This neat contraption comes with a slicer, holder and microwave tray that makes the chips nice and crispy without the use of oil. Plus since he only has to buy the potatoes, he’ll be saving money in the long run.
Net Flix ($100 for the year)
Your dad has probably been watching TV shows for longer than you’ve been alive. And it’s likely that most of his favorite TV shows are no longer on the air. But with a Net Flix account, your father will be able to sign up for his favorite TV shows available on DVD and they will be delivered right to his door. For less than $10 a month, he will be delivered a couple of TV shows at a time (along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope) and when he returns those, the next TV shows on his list will show up a few days later. He won’t even have to leave the lazy-boy to do it.
