    2014 Father's Day Gift Guide

    Father’s Day is on Sunday, June 15th, which doesn’t give you much time to grab the perfect gift for your dad. Thankfully, Windstream comes in handy when shopping on the go. Here are a few gift ideas that are sure to please the extraordinary dads in your life.

    For the Music-Loving Dad

    Polaroid Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker: One thing is for sure, dads love good music. There’s something about listening to old tunes from their younger days that can instantly put Pop in a good mood. It could be the nostalgia, or maybe he believes that “they just don’t make music like they used to.” Whatever the reason, music is good for the soul and especially for dads. Note: if you don’t feel like listening to your dad’s music, maybe you should also consider purchasing headphones.

    For the Traveling Dad

    Magellan Roadmate GPS: Since most dads despise asking for directions, a GPS would be the perfect gift for the dad who travels. This user-friendly device comes equipped with the OneTouch Favorites Menu, which allows dad to create shortcuts to his favorite destinations with ease. The GPS also comes with free lifetime maps to ensure he has the most updated maps for the life of the device. Once your dad is cruising with this GPS, he’ll no longer be able to blame your mom for taking a wrong turn.

    For the Tech-Savvy Dad

    Samsung Galaxy Tablet: Has he been eyeing your tablet since Christmas? Get him one of his very own for Father’s Day. The Samsung Galaxy 10-inch tablet is the perfect gift for dads who want to listen to music, watch movies, surf the web and look at pictures of their precious children and grandchildren. It’s also lightweight and easily portable so dad can take it wherever his heart desires!

    For the Weather-Obsessed Dad

    Oregon Scientific Portable Public Alert Radio: Some dads are obsessed with sports or hunting, others are obsessed with the weather. If your dad falls into the latter category, the Oregon Scientific Portable Public Alert Radio or the Wireless Weather Forecaster with Clock would be the perfect gift for him. The public alert radio monitors all N.O.A.A and EAS weather warnings and can receive alerts for up to 9 different local areas. The weather clock allows you to monitor indoor and outdoor temperature in up to 3 locations. I think either choice would satisfy the inner meteorologist in any dad.

    Hopefully, your Father’s Day shopping just got a little easier. You can also check out Windstream’s Electronic Store for more gift options and to take advantage of our 6-month payment plans.
