GeekDad’s Gift Guide for Geek Dads

Hacking the Holidays

Sure, we show lots of geeky gifts that entertain the inner child and the actual children, but what about that gift for the dads? Well, here is a selection of gifts for the dads out there, each of which has its own geek cred.

Senso Golf Glove

A great holiday gift for golf lovers is the SensoGlove. This digital golf glove teaches you how to play golf better and avoid bad habits. Its built-in digital sensors continuously read the user’s grip pressure to ensure a consistently accurate, smooth and powerful golf swing. Made of cabretta leather, SensoGlove from Sensosolutions lets everyone quickly learn how to hold the club, improving every part of their game, from backswing, downswing, impact, follow-through, to driving, putting, and chipping. I live on a golf course, so I jumped at the chance to try out a product that could help my swing. While it does not give you tips on your hip positioning, it does alert you to the correct grip pressure for the current club.

Ravi Solution: Instant Wine Refresher & Decanter

Wine Refresher: The smallest and fastest wine chiller on the market today, this unique tool transforms room temperature white and red wine to cellar temperature in seconds, for a smoother taste and enhanced flavor. With an internal tube made from the same stainless steel used for fermentation tanks, Ravi maintains the wine’s characteristics and never alters the taste. Since not all wines are drunk at the same temperature, Ravi has a valve that lets you control the flow of wine to obtain the desired temperature. The wine chiller can also be used to chill spirits.

Decanter: The unique, modular design of the Ravi Decanter makes it one of the most innovative and convenient tools of its kind. Made of two detachable sections, it’s never been easier to clean and wipe the inside of a decanter. The device’s neck can be replace with a Ravi Instant Wine Refresher allowing you to simultaneously aerate and cool your wine, so you can instantly serve it at the perfect temperature. That’s right: they fit together to form the ultimate wine solution.

Krups Beertender

Krups BeerTenders maintain beer at the ideal temperature of 37.4°F. DraughtKeg and Beertender keep beer fresh for 30 days after tapping. All BeerTenders are engineered to work with Heineken lager, Heineken Light and Newcastle Brown Ale DraughtKegs. An average DraughtKeg contains 20 8oz. beers and be found at your local grocery or liquor retailer.

Heineken is also having a special promotion on their Facebook site right now, to help those folks out there get what they want for sure this holiday season called “BeerFriender.”

From their site: Secretly, you’d love to buy one for yourself, but you can’t. It’s the season of giving – that wouldn’t be in the holiday spirit.

But what if you could buy one for yourself and make it look like it was a gift from someone else? This holiday season Heineken is making sure you can. Introducing BeerFriender, a Facebook application that matches you up with a complete stranger who also wants a BeerTender and makes it look like you bought them for each other, instead of buying them for yourselves. A nicely giftwrapped box will arrive in the mail with a card, so no one will have any idea what you are up to … unless they also read this gift guide, of course.
