With Father’s Day just around the corner, we here at the Pop Culture Cosmos thought it would be a great time to offer up some very popular ideas that will have Dad thanking his lucky stars come June 20th. So check out our ideas on gifts for that special guy in your life with some of the most popular products the internet has to offer (prices listed are as of 6/12/21 and are subject to change and availability).
Amazon Fire Stick 4K (Amazon, List $49.99, on sale $39.99)– Amazon has changed the way millions watch TV with the advent of the Amazon Fire, and with more and more 4K televisions landing in people’s living rooms, it makes sense to upgrade the streaming device along with it. The Fire Stick 4K provides a cost-effective gift that’s going to be a winner with Dad the moment he can check out his favorite sports and television shows in a better resolution.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition (Walmart/Amazon List $59.88) – As we have spoken about numerous times on our shows, our love for the Mass Effect series (almost-sorry Andromeda) knows no bounds. This re-visiting of the classic trilogy, with ramped-up graphics and attention to detail given to all three games with the first being the most notable, is a must get for anyone who remembers why this space opera is so beloved and considered by many to be one of the greatest gaming IP’s of all-time. Whether it’s your first time through Mass Effect 1-3 or your fourteenth, this labor of love from Bioware should be at the top of any gamer’s list. While the console prices are relatively flat at 60 bucks across the board, the PC version can be had for as low as $39.79 at CD Keys.
Marvel Avengers Massage Gaming Chair (Amazon/Neo Chair, List $179.98 to 229.99)– For those who just can’t get enough of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, comes a unique set of gaming chairs that comes in styles that Dad will be sure to love. Whether it’s a variation of Iron Man, Black Panther, Captain America, Spider-Man, Deadpool, or Captain Marvel, some of these chairs offer an even more relaxing experience with an accompanying USB massage lumbar pillow or pull out leg rest.
Manscaped Lawn Mower 4.0 (Manscaped, List $84.99, sale $67.98 with Code FASTBREAK)– Yes, we at the Pop Culture Cosmos and our sister show The Lakers Fast Break, do have a vested interest if you go to manscaped.com and use the code FASTBREAK on checkout for 20% off + FREE SHIPPING. But hey, Manscaped is the biggest name in men’s grooming right now and what a better way to say “I love you Dad” then by getting him the latest version of Manscaped’s most popular product. With it’s Skin-Safe technology ensuring a smooth shave all over without nicks or cuts, this wireless, waterproof portable shaver should be the gift every Father needs before they head back out to the pool or beach this summer.
Lord of The Rings Trilogy 4k Ultra HD+ Digital (Extended And Theatrical Versions) Box Set (Amazon, List $89.99, on sale $70.97)– One of the greatest trilogies in movie history keeps getting refreshed with the advent of new technologies. This is the case with this box set for it includes an upgrade to full 4k and Ultra HD ensuring that the experience will be about as good as one can get if using the proper television (if you need an idea see below). Peter Jackson’s directorial brilliance is on full display with this set as this landmark set of films has never looked better in a home environment.
Insignia NS-43DF710NA21 43-inch Smart 4K UHD – Fire TV Edition (Amazon, List $319.99)- One of Amazon’s most popular televisions has thousands of five-star reviews and as a second TV there are few better options. And with the price dropping on sale by $100 just in time for Father’s Day, this smart TV option with a beautiful picture could be a great way to say how much Dad means to a family with this awesome gift.
VIZIO SB3651-F6 36” 5.1 Channel Home Theater Surround Sound Bar (Amazon, $249.99)– If the addition of a brand new television for the family room is in order, or if Dad has been searching for a better audio experience, this Vizio set ups the game and then some with an array of impressive features. With a sound bar driving the action and a set of rear speakers and wireless subwoofer to provide a surrounding ambiance with some punch, this audio collection blasts a distinctive sound. With Dolby Digital, DTS, and Virtual:X options, the ability to enhance the television-watching experience can be had at an affordable price.
Samsung – 70″ Class 6 Series LED 4K UHD Smart Tizen TV (Best Buy, List $749.99, on sale $699.99)– Finding the right television for Dad can be excruciating, with a lot of pain coming from what features to get, picture quality, and an affordable price. The Class 6 Series from Samsung offers a slew of apps for a smart TV, works with Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant, has impressive marks for picture quality for a value TV, and a strongly-rated word of mouth experience (4.7 out of 5 on over 3,300 reviews at Best Buy) from consumers.
Dungeons & Dragons Core Rulebooks Gift Set (Amazon, MSRP $169.99, on sale for $91.99)– If Dad has always wanted to join or create and adventure within the realm of Dungeons & Dragons, there’s no better time than now to do it. With the popularity of this long-beloved series never stronger, it makes sense as a gift to get Dad started with his own tabletop RPG journey for the first time, or if returning to well-remembered days of the past with this great set to get him started. These are the core books any essential D&D player or aspiring Dungeon Master truly needs- the Players Handbook, Dungeon Master’s Guide, and Monster Manual. With the Dungeon Master’s screen also provided, Dad is now set with this gift set to embark on a grand adventure he won’t soon forget.
Funko Pop! Moment Star Wars: The Mandalorian – Mandalorian and The Child Vinyl Bobblehead (Amazon, List Price $32.99, on sale for $17.29)– If Dad is a collector of everything Funko, then this tribute to the highly-successful Disney Plus series The Mandalorian makes for an outstanding Father’s Day Gift.
