Every Dad is unique, which is what makes our individual relationships with our fathers so special. Like my Dad, I’m the youngest of 4 siblings, so we share a lot of similarities. My Dad has helped shape me into the person I am today. He’s guided me with his wisdom and life lessons, has taught me to use common sense, be street-smart, and pragmatic in all my decisions. His goal has always been to provide for his 4 daughters – to ensure we had a roof over our head, food on the table, and a good education. Like many immigrant parents, along with my mother, he sacrificed a lot to come here to give us a good life; and for that, I’m forever grateful.
Often times, our Dads are the unsung heroes of the family. So, this year for Father’s Day, I wanted to do something more for him and get him a special gift from Best Buy that’s in line with his unique ‘type’.
What’s Your Dad’s Unique Type?
Every single Dad has his own unique ‘type’. You know what I’m talking about! Whether it’s the handy-man, who fixes everything around the house, the outdoorsy type, who enjoys camping or fishing, or the sports fanatic, they all have a ‘type’! What’s your Dad’s?
For as long as I can remember, my Dad has had a thing for technology, so I’d say my Dad’s type is the tech guy! Before retiring, he had a long career working with computers, including being a computer operator in the Royal Air Force in the United Kingdom before I was born (which is pretty badass, if you ask me!). He’s always gotten excited over gadgets in the house; and even though he won’t admit it, he likes to show off about them too!
Because of that, the Sonos One is the perfect gift for him for Father’s Day. It’s a voice controlled smart speaker with Amazon Alexa built in that will play all of his music in one place. He’ll also be able to check the news and traffic and manage other smart devices in the home. This will be the first product in my parents’ household that has a voice command, and I can almost already hear my father saying “Alexa, play ____”!
