The ‘Sh*t! I almost forgot Father’s Day’ Gift Guide.

2019 is well underway, and Father’s Day has snuck up again. The quest has begun to find the ideal gift, at the ideal price, that you’ll receive in an ideal timeframe. Or maybe it hasn’t? That’s ok, we’re here to tell you there’s still time. (Just not much).

You start to ask yourself questions. What type of dad is your dad? He could be techy kinda guy. Or the “want to bond” kinda guy who’s happiest spending his time with you, his child. A cool dad, a workaholic dad, a fun dad, a movie buff-dad…you may actually be a dad. You know what, it doesn’t matter. You need a gift that’s versatile — the perfect gift for everydad.

That’s where LIFX comes in. It’s no ordinary light, for no ordinary guy.

Movie buff Dad.

Father’s day in your house might be kicking back on the couch watching dad’s favourite movie. Whether it’s the GodFather, Back to the Future 1, 2 or 3 a movie deserves good lighting. Get dad a couple of LIFX Z Light Strips to stick on the back of his TV, he can create custom lighting scenes and you can enjoy being the golden child for the next month.

Techy Dad.

When you’re watching Attenborough and remark on the incredible python, does your dad presume requests.post(‘https://api.lifx.com/v1/lights/all/toggle', headers={“Authorization”: “Bearer” + token}}) ? You’re in luck. With an open API, he will have endless opportunities to create, build and design unique ways to use a LIFX A60+ with InfraRed no less!. There are endless possibilities. The only limitation — time, and dad’s creativity.

Time-poor Dad.

Your dad’s a busy guy, we get it. He got meetings, business deals, places to be — so why not help the guy out. A couple of LIFX Mini’s will do the job. He can use them as wake-up alarms in the mornings, connect them with IFTTT for calendar updates and sync them with the sun to help melatonin production.

Family time Dad.

Ok, this one might be for dads looking for brownie points. A LIFX Tile makes for a great afternoon activity with the kids. With settings like Draw and effects like Flame, dad and kids can create pictures and custom wall art, that won’t leave a mess.

You.

Oh and while you’re at it, why not treat yourself? A set of 100mm downlights or GU10s is the most underrated way to pimp the man cave. Problem is, they’ll love it so much you’ll forever have to host Smithy, Jonesy, Fitzy, Bloko, Nobby and Jonno for every grand final viewing ever.
