Need help shopping for dads and grads? Check out these 10 tech gifts from UScellular

June 10, 2022

June is filled with some of the biggest moments of the year, including Father’s Day and plenty of graduations. With so many highlights to celebrate, finding the perfect gift to mark the occasion can be challenging. Luckily, UScellular is here to help make your gift giving easier than ever.

If you’re thinking of celebrating that special dad and graduate in your life by buying them a gift, you are certainly not alone.

A 2021 Statista survey found that 14 percent of shoppers were expected to buy graduates an electronic gift, while a 2022 National Retail Federation survey shared that $2.25 billion would be spent on electronics for Father’s Day.

Ditch the ties and cards, here are 10 tech gift ideas for a variety of budgets that both dads and grads would appreciate for Father’s Day and graduation:

Cases & Screen Protectors

When it comes to devices, having a case is essential to keeping them protected, especially if your dad or grad is always on-the-go. The OtterBox Defender Pro Case offers a rugged but clean design while maintaining a comfortable grip. Plus, the raised edge gives a bit of added camera defense. At the same time, no smartphone is fully safe without a bit of screen protection. The Gadget Guard Black Ice+ Universal Liquid Screen Protector keeps screens safe from scratches while being completely invisible to the naked eye.


Your loved ones may use their phone for photos, video, work, music and shopping, so giving them an easy way to charge all their devices could be just what they need. The Samsung Wireless Charger Pad Trio and the Belkin BOOST CHARGE PRO 3-in-1 Wireless Charger can wirelessly charge a smartphone, smartwatch and earbuds all at the same time while featuring an elegant and stylish design.

Connected Home

The home is where family and friends tend to gather, so dad will need to know when he has visitors at the front door. The Google Nest Doorbell is battery powered, wire-free and easy to install, while also providing an extra sense of security. At the same time, recent graduates need to stay organized and productive, so gifting them a helpful assistant might be just what they need. The Google Nest Hub Max can make video calls, connect to other smart devices and act as a digital picture frame for their favorite family photos.


Father’s Day and graduation should be a time of relaxation and celebration for those special dads and grads, so why not gift them some well-deserved time to themselves? Your student can listen to some favorite tunes, while dad can make a quick call or check-in on the latest podcasts with the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro and the Apple AirPods Pro.


Wearables are a hot gift right now because they can make calls, track fitness goals, monitor health, be a digital wallet and play music. If you’re looking for a Father’s Day or graduation gift that can do it all, a Samsung Galaxy Watch4 or Apple Watch Series 7 can access everything the wearers need right from their wrist.
