If they’re good enough for me, they are a good fit for Pops. The QuietComfort 35 (Series II) over-ear headphones are my go-to for traveling, office listening, and blocking out unwanted noise. They hold a 20-hour charge, interact with virtual assistants, and connect over Bluetooth or NFC (near-field communication). The headphones can be used wirelessly, with a 3.5mm cable, and have adjustable noise cancellation. This means he can choose how much outside noise he wants to let in. $349.
LaMetric Time Amazon

Mini Raclette set

If the Dad in your life has a groovy record collection, help them show off their favorite covers with aluminum vinyl frames. These 12.5 x 12.5-inch frames have a clear back, so he can show off the rear artwork. The protective sheets are made of a clear Styrene. This pack comes with six frames. $66.

Does your Dad love Star Wars? Highly likely. This stainless steel tie bar—it’s 2.5-inches long—looks like Darth Vader’s lightsaber hilt, and will let them walk around family reunions screaming “Billy (or, you know, your name), I am your Father.” $40.
The number of times I’ve “carefully” packed a tie in my suitcase and it came out a rumbled mess is baffling. If you’ve got a tie-wearing pa that travels a lot, this device can help keep them looking fresh. The faux leather product fits ties 3.5 inches or narrower. $11.
