While every gift is thoughtful, Father's Day is almost a guarantee of a gift that Dad may not always be able to use. Sometimes a better gift is a present he can use quickly, like a smart stud finder, a great bottle of whiskey or steaks to grill on a summer evening, to a class he can take to improve one of his favorite pastimes.

This year, we have pulled together a lot of options for you to choose from, starting with a weeding robot. We also found gadgets any geek would love, which can be ordered right from the computer or a smartphone where you're reading this right now.

Wild Turkey Tasting Skill – Guided Bourbon tasting with Wild Turkey’s Master Distillers and either Alexa or Google Assistant

The best Father’s Day tech gifts he'll savor, sip and share on his special day (15)Wild Turkey Tasting Skill for the Dad who likes his

If Dad loves bourbon and you have a smart speaker or display by Google Assistant or Alexa, here is one of the least expensive gifts for Dad. Wild Turkey has created a skill that is a guided tour led by Wild Turkey’s master distillers, Jimmy, and Eddie Russell, as well as Matthew McConaughey, Wild Turkey’s creative director. The group shares their knowledge of the brand’s history and personal experiences with each Wild Turkey bottle you want to taste with your smart speaker.

The cost for the Wild Turkey skill is free, but the bottles of Wild Turkey might get a little expensive. The skill will take you through five bottles of Wild Turkey: the flagship 101 Bourbon, 101 Rye, Longbranch, Rare Breed, and Kentucky Spirit. And if Dad doesn’t have a smart speaker or display by Google or Alexa, that will add a little to the cost of your gift. But in the end, isn’t Dad worth it.

Does Dad like a bit of the brown stuff? A great bottle of whiskey can't be a bad choice, then, and there are some subscription plans out there that not only take care of sending the bottle — but, in some cases, let your father choose what he'd like as well.

One, Flaviar, lets you choose between a half-year subscription for $190 and a full year for $300. They can pick the kind of whiskey they get — which almost makes this more fun.
