Father’s Day Guide: The DIY Dad

Father’s Day is tough. Gift ideas are not easy to come by … and let’s face it, dad isn’t much help. So this year we’ve decided to go all out for dad’s big day. In this series leading up to June 16, we’ll give great gift ideas for all types of dads.

Who says gifts that require a little bit of work can’t be great? For many dads (mine included), nothing makes them more proud than showing off their handy work. Especially when their work solves a problem and makes life more convenient for others.

But what gift could possibly combine all of this? What gift can dad impress the family with by installing it in about 20 minutes while giving his home an upgrade that everyone will love? Let us show you with the Newer Technology Power2U AC/USB wall outlet!

We’ve written recently about the eco-friendly Power2U and how it tops the competition in terms of efficiency and quality of build. But that’s only half of the story. The Power2U’s simplicity is what really makes it the ultimate DIY Father’s Day gift.

Guided by OWC’s free how-to installation video, the Power2U installs in as little as 20 minutes! It’s also fully UL-Listed and features NEC compliant tamper-resistant AC receptacles, so dad can install it with total peace of mind.

But it’s not just simple to install; it’s also simply cool. The whole family will love the Power2U’s capabilities. No longer will a household with several devices be a power brick short of charging an iPhone, iPad or other USB device. The Power2U will bring your walls in to the 21st century and make you wonder how you lived without it.

So give your DIY-spirited dad the Father’s Day gift that he and the whole family will love for years to come!

Bonus ideas for the DIY dad: 11-Piece Portable Toolkit, bottle and can opening iPhone case … OK, this isn’t exactly a DIY gift. But what better way for dad to celebrate a job well done after installing a Power2U than with a cold drink?

Check out the OWC Blog for other great gift ideas for dad. Have a dad who loves to read? We’ve got you covered.
