Finding the right gift for dad can be hard. Thankfully, many dads are fans of gadgets that make their lives more fun and/or efficient and with much of the workforce back to the office, dad is likely adjusting to being out of the house most of the week again. Accordingly, this Father’s Day is the perfect time to gift him something to make his workday better — from noise-cancelling headphones to an under-the-desk bike, showing him extra care around his workday will make him feel loved.
All-In-One Desk Bike/Bike Workstation V9 by FlexiSpot, $409
For the dad who can’t sit still or needs to start moving more, this Flexispot Deskcise Pro Bike Desk gets solid reviews. It can be purchased with its own attached desk space, but some reviews indicate that having a stable standing desk that’s separate of the bike might be the best way to go. For work that requires more listening and watching than typing, however, the desktop upgrade could fit the bill. And, with wheels and a compact design, the bike can be moved out of the way when dad is ready to return to standing or sitting in a regular chair.

With 10GB Nixplay Cloud storage, there’s plenty of room for all those vacation photos that’ll make him smile throughout his workday.
Apple Watch Graphite Stainless Steel Case with Milanese Loop from $749
If dad doesn’t have a smart watch already, or is due for an upgrade, this Apple Watch with Graphite Stainless Steel Case and Milanese Loop Band will delight him with all the bells and whistles to make his workday better. Not only will it keep him discretely connected to his text messages during meetings, it will also provide him with fitness and mental health features to maximize his self-care throughout the workday. And, with a magnetic band for the perfect fit, he’s sure to appreciate the comfort of having such an adjustable band size.
Glass Propagation Vase With A-Frame Wooden Stand, $52.99
Live plants can transform any workspace and this Glass Propagation Vase with A-Frame Wooden Stand from Sage and Sill would look cool in dad’s office.
