Father’s Day is coming right up – only a couple of weeks away! If you’re anything like me and have a dad or husband who are hard to buy for, stick around – maybe we’ll get inspired together to find the perfect gift for our #GreatestDad.


When I say that my husband is hard to buy for, it’s basically because he always says he doesn’t need  anything. And when he does  decide he needs something, just  before I have a chance to get it and surprise him with it, he  buys it. See what I’m up against?

So I need to get creative – get him to give me a list of what he’d like, and hope he doesn’t buy anything on that list until after the holiday is over. It’s a challenge.

Best Buy definitely helps trigger some great ideas – and since my hubby is a professor who teaches an Electronics and Robotics class, this really cool robot might be the thing to get him just for fun:


Doesn’t that look like fun? It’s the WowWee MiP 0821 robot that drives, dances, battles, balances, plays games, responds to motions and more and can be remotely controlled by a compatible iOS or Android cell phone for ease of use. The dual wheels allow smooth, simple mobility. 

It’s not only exclusive to Best Buy, but it so happens it’s on their #GreatestDad Gift List, too.  

Speaking of Best Buy’s Gift List, here are some great ideas under $100 for that special Dad in your life:
