The 9 Best Gadget Holders/Cases For Dad

best gadget holders for dad

Does your Dad have a Kindle, iPad, AND Macbook Pro? Does he know about the hot new app that makes your pictures look like a Polaroid photo from the original 1947 camera AND prints directly out on your printer via your WiFi network (that doesn’t actually exist…yet).  Does your Father often get the new generation of iPhone before you do?  Don’t worry, you’re not alone – the Tech Dad is a phenomenon sweeping the nation, with my own father among them. Or maybe your dad just got his very first iPhone and still doesn’t know how to text. Either way, he needs a cool and functional case to make sure his tech toys stay in top notch condition!

1. Personalized Rustic Real Wood iPhone Case


 This iPhone case made out of real wood by Mini-Fab ($21.99) is the perfect cross between a case for a Dad new to the tech world and a seasoned one.  It’s simple, stylish, AND you get to personalize it with a picture of anything your dad might like. For a new tech dad, you could have a picture of a baseball, or your dog, or whatever it is he likes. For a long time tech dad, go with no picture and just his first or last name or initials. Of course you can create any combination you think he’ll like best.


2. Custom iPhone Case (4, 4s, 5, 5s)
