1. Budget: First of all, remember that you don't have to break the bank to show Dad how much you appreciate him. It truly is the thought that counts!
2. Amazon Echo -Think of Amazon’s Echo like his new personal assistant (minus the horrifying hourly rate). Operating via voice control, the Echo can recite daily news, read him an audiobook, blast his favorite dad rock. Believe it or not, it can even order him a pizza. Also, the Echo can help out with the chores, including controlling the thermostat, any outdoor sprinklers, and lock any doors.
