We called this our best iPad for most people. It’s a small but snappy tablet, with enough power behind the screen to handle most common computing tasks. While tablets haven’t quite fulfilled their destiny of replacing laptops, they’re still plenty useful. The blend of portability and a large, 10.2-inch screen makes the iPad a joy to use, whether it’s checking emails on a plane or watching a movie while sprawled across the couch. It supports Apple's Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil, too, making it more versatile than any of Apple's previous basic iPads.
Facial hair may not be the only hair your dad wants to be rid of. (We don’t judge, and neither should you—he changed your diapers, after all.) In this case, we recommend the Panasonic Electric Body Hair Trimmer and Groomer. The Panasonic is vertically oriented (unlike other trimmers that work horizontally), water resistant, and extremely powerful, so your dad can easily cut through any annoying body hair in a single pass. Fully charged, the Panasonic’s battery lasts 40 minutes—more than enough time to get the job done.
While a personal massage therapist would be a wonderful gift, this portable massager is a more practical solution to alleviate muscle tension. We tried the line of Theragun products, and the mini stood out to us as an accessible and effective way to massage out any soreness. Plus, if she’s working in front of a desk all day, she’ll surely appreciate this pocket-size problem solver.
