Belkin’s WEMO Mini Smart Plug
Rated Hip Ampersand Logos by Vanessa Azzoli$34.99 Alright, so we’ve had this on a previous gift guide, but this is perfect for the tech-savvy (and frugal) dad in your life. It’s by no means meant to make the whole home smart, but it’s perfect for a single socket in the home. Maybe a tool shop for dad? Oh… did I just stereotype your dad. Sorry.
This is a relatively inexpensive way to convert some plugs in your home to smart plugs. Simply plug it into an outlet and pair it with your home’s wi-fi, and you’re ready to go. There’s a simple-to-use app that allows you to power the plug on and off directly from your phone. Bonus: it actually works from a distance – which helps when you’re out for dinner and forgot to leave a light on for your dog (speaking from experience…). Double bonus: it’s compatible with Amazon Alexa AND Google home.

Oddly enough, my husband came home from his job site telling me that his client had been telling him about the instant pot for almost 2 weeks. We bought one, and can’t imagine our life without it now. We use it a few times a week, and we are always trying new recipes out. We’ve been able to make a full roast chicken in 23 minutes in it! In addition to it being a pressure cooker, you can use it as a slow cooker, saute items, and even make yogurt! The various digital features are awesome.

Rated Hip Ampersand Logos by Vanessa Azzoli$33.83 Got a dad who’s a little bit business, and a little bit rock ‘n roll. No worries, here’s a good way to maintain that balance. It has a magnetic lid, and is made out of American Walnut wood, so there’s no cheaping out here.

Google Home Max
Rated Hip Ampersand Logos by Vanessa Azzoli$499 We gave one of these away on the Big Show lately. And this thing is fantastic (as we’re not just saying it because we got one for free. Seriously, it’s a powerful, great-sounding speaker with the Google Assistant built right in. It features two 114 mm (4.5 in) high-excursion (+/- 11 mm) dual voice-coil woofers, and two 18 mm (0.7 in) custom tweeters for some serious power. It comes in two colours, as well, to better match your home decor.
