Give Dad the gift of sleep. Google's Nest Mini has a lot of uses, but it's also one of our favorite white noise machines. Just have him say "Hey Google, play rain sounds" or "white noise" or "fan sounds." There's a whole list of relaxing sounds any Google Assistant speaker can make. But ambient sounds are just a sliver of what Google Assistant can do: It can play the news, blast music, answer your Google queries, even control other smart home equipment he might have installed around the house.

Wirecutter editor Tim Barribeau waxed poetic about Hasami porcelain in 2017 and again in spring 2020, and in his stead, I will do the same. My favorite mugs—like Tim’s—are from Hasami, a Japanese ceramics company. I bet one of these mugs, given the chance, will become your dad’s favorite, too. Hasami mugs are gorgeous porcelain pieces that always look like a set, no matter what size or color you end up buying. They’re easily (and pleasantly) stackable, making it a joy to view more than one on your shelves. To start, I recommend investing in the 13-ounce mug in gloss gray, which is, in my opinion, the perfect size in the most striking color available.
