Whether he’s a kid at heart or a grill king, Brookstone (Level 3) is your source for high-tech treasures for Dad!
With the Grill Alert Talking Remote Meat Thermometer ($69.99), Dad will have an assistant grill master and won’t need to babysit the grill at every moment. He can venture up to 300 feet away and still be in touch with how the meat or fish is coming along.
Talking Remote Meat Thermometer
Here’s how the wireless thermometer works. You put the stainless steel probe into your meat or fish. Then, use the remote to select what you’re grilling and if you want it cooked rare, medium rare, medium or well done. The talking remote will tell you when your meal is almost done and when it’s ready. The remote comes with a belt clip. Click here for a video demonstration from Brookstone.
I felt like Brookstone was reading my mind when I saw the Pocket Projector for the iPhone 4 ($229.99). My neighbors and I have been talking about doing outdoor movie nights, and this gizmo could be just the right solution. It would be a great gift for me — I mean my husband…
The projector creates up to a 50-inch screen on any surface — indoor or out and even provides instant backseat entertainment in the car. All you do is dock your iPhone4 in it, and you’re all set. There is a built in speaker system. You can watch movies, family videos, picture slideshows and anything you can access from your phone. The projector will even charge the phone while it entertains.
Check out the portable Outdoor Wireless Speaker and Dock ($129.99 on sale). As Brookstone puts it, you can “dock and rock.” This weather resistant speaker can play music from up to 150 feet away from your phone, MP3 player or home stereo. It can also be used inside. At night, it gives off a blue glow.
It’s even weather resistant
Who says toys are just for kids? Dad may have to share this one.
The hobby grade Cloud DSS Long-Range Copter ($149.99) can fly the length of two football fields! At night, Dad can impress the kids with a light show. The plane has a searchlight and multi-color body lights.
One serious “toy!”
Say Cheers to everything Dad does for the family with a pair of Australian beer glasses ($39.99 or 4 for $70). The double-walled glasses keep beer cooler for a longer amount of time, prevent condensation and hold up to 16 oz! You can even keep them in the freezer so they’re ready to go. They’re also dishwasher friendly.
So, if you could choose any one of these gifts for a well-deserved dad in your life, which one would you pick?
