Katie's Top 7 Gifts for Dad this Father's Day

Make it the best father’s day ever with cool gadgets and legit socks dad will actually wear! Hooking you up with some of my top ideas as shared on The DA Show on CBS Sports Radio.

Sound Caddy – Golf Club Bluetooth Speaker

FORE! This Bluetooth speaker is designed to travel with you right inside your golf bag alongside your clubs.  The attached tee spike will slip the speaker right into the tee holder on the dash of dad’s cart, or he can use the ground spike to take tunes directly to the tee box! Weather resistant, a massive 10 hours of battery life, and it’s a bonus charging block with two bonus USB ports to plug in your devices. Note—the shaft is removable for storage. 

Cold Brew Coffee Maker and Carafe

If you’re pops is a fan of cold brew, this all-in-one unit has his name all over it. This gadget creates the perfect cold brew in 12-24 hours, using your favorite ground coffee, no batteries or wall outlets required! The coffee steeps in the top, then when you’re ready, just hold the button down to drain your brew into the insulated, detachable carafe.

Hover Helmets

Dad will be excited to show his team spirit by proudly displaying the Hover Helmet! A half-sized version of your NCAA or NFL team’s officially licensed helmet floats magically and rotates indefinitely once plugged in.

Socks for Pops

Dad will surely get a laugh out of these sarcastic socks, that he’ll ACTUALLY want to wear! Pick from designs that declare; “Do I look like a team player?”, “Worst gift ever!”, “Adult in training.”, and lots more.

T-Rex Sprinkler

The entire family will be excited to find T-Rex roaming through the backyard this summer! This inflatable T-Rex sprinkler will have kids running around with one of the most terrifying predators to ever walk the earth, and at a gigantic 7 feet tall, its big enough for mom and dad to get in on the fun!

Sleep Sheperd Blue

Science constantly reminds us how critical a good night's sleep is – and yet millions of Americans continue to struggle at getting enough ZZs. Sleep Shepherd Blue helps you to fall asleep using soothing binaural tones. Then once you are asleep it helps to track and analyze your sleep in real-time with brainwave sensors and biometric feedback. You can use this data to retrain your body to get the most optimal night's sleep.

Why You Should Care About Your Digital Footprint

*Sponsored Post This post was written as part of the Allstate Digital Safety Program and sponsored by Allstate. All opinions are mine.

As a journalist and tech expert, I am known for my travels “Around the World in Katie Days.”On the road, living this fast paced, adventurous life I must stay smart, safe and use common sense.While traveling I am aware of the importance of protecting myself and my gear with practical things like wearing a seatbelt and keeping my most valuable gear with me as a carry on. While these concrete things seem so obvious, over time I have also learned that protecting my personal data left behind from online activities, or digital footprint, is just as important. That’s why I’m excited to partner with Allstate.

Photographing the Northern Lights in Alaska!

It’s the experience of a lifetime to witness the epic beauty of the Northern Lights. We had the special invite to head to Fairbanks, Alaska with Canon experts, including Canon Explorer of Light Ken Sklute, to learn how to photograph this celestial light show in person. During our time in Fairbanks we enjoyed the unparalleled beauty of the landscape and met some of the kindest, most accommodating people of anywhere on our travels. We realized that capturing the Northern Lights requires a trifecta of the right camera equipment, cold weather gear and ideal weather conditions. Together with our photographic guides, who led us to secret locations, we were extremely lucky to witness jaw dropping Northern Lights displays and capture the perfect shot.
