Ditch the cheesy tie or random gift card this Father's Day or graduation season--your gift should deliver that sense of speechless amazement this June in the very best way. Gifts for both dads and grads often leave gift givers running to the local drug store for a gift card or heading back to the box of crayons to hurriedly make "free car wash" coupons. Cash is often at the top of many gift giver's lists but that's one of the most impersonal gifts you can give.
Don't spend Father's Day or graduation season at the ATM or feeling you missed the mark. Peruse this handy list of gifts instead that will beautifully work interchangeably for any dad or grad.
Technology That Will Blow You Away
If multitasking is a priority, the Alcatel TCL Xess is a tablet that will truly allow you to do it all. The perfect gift for any dad or grad, the Xess integrates well into families and for group use, as the Xess allows for multi-window viewing thanks to its 17.3 inch screen and full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. Nuts and bolts include a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT8783T processor along with 3 gigabytes of RAM. Expansion is easy for a busy family or individual with growing tastes as the Xess includes 32 gigabytes of on-board storage and microSD expansion of up to 64 gigabytes. Software-wise, the Alcatel OneTouch Xess administers the Android 5.1 Lollipop with plug-and-play ease.
Beyond this tablet's internal power, the Xess's makeup is like no other tablet on the market--you can virtually use it any way you choose. From laying it flat on a surface to propping the kickstand in a 30, 50 and 75 degree angle, users find functionality in abundance.
The Xess also doubles as a top of the line camera because it houses a 5MP front-facing camera that captures still images but also allows you to go live for online meetings and gatherings. Sound quality during those interludes is exceptional because the Xess boasts 3-watt JBL speakers, designed for state-of-the art sound quality.
