Markus Zusak wrote in The Book Thief, “Sometimes I think my papa is an accordion. When he looks at me and smiles and breathes, I hear the notes.” Likewise, our fathers had us believe they were superheroes and could do anything.
Of course, we learnt over time they are no superheroes but always ready to go the extra mile for us. So, with Father’s Day around the corner, it gives us just the right opportunity to show them how much we love them and admire them by gifting them gadgets or gizmos that will ease their life a bit while adding a dash of fun.
From an electric coffee maker and Alexa smart speaker to Saregama Carvaan, YourStory has curated a list of tech-savvy gift ideas for your father.
