Post image for HighTechDad’s Father’s Day 2012 Reviewed Gift Buying Guide

Rev up those Father’s Day gift engines, it’s that time of year again! Yeah, I’m a bit late in getting together my list of products that you might want to consider for your dad for Father’s Day, but you will still have a few days to get those gifts (or write up a nice IOU card). Anyway, this is a gift guide of products that I have reviewed since the last Father’s Day (you can always look back at my 2011 Father’s Day gift guide for ideas as well). I have tested these products out (and may actually be still using them).

Fathers-Day-2012

So let’s cut straight to the chase here. Here is a chronological listing of products that I have reviewed over the past year, what they are, the price, my overall rating of that product and a link to the full review on HighTechDad.com. And I haven’t included every product that I have reviewed here. There are some items that aren’t quite appropriate for Dads and my car and automobile reviews can all be found here.

Post image for Waging War on Pollen, Dust, Bacteria, Mold, Germs & More with the Honeywell Air Purifier HHT-145

Sneezing, coughing and runny noses as night. Itchy eyes with tears being squeezed out. My daughters have had allergies all spring and summer and it was particularly worse this year because of the longer rainy season and the larger amounts of pollen in the air. So I brought some big air defense weaponry in to battle these tiny, annoying irritants, the Honeywell Air Purifier HHT-145.

This Purifier packs some major defenses against all of those items that can irritate the sinuses. There are 3 levels of protections in the Honeywell purifier:

  1. Ultraviolet Power – this is the best way to take out viruses, bacteria, fungi, mold spores and germs.
  2. HEPA filters – using a HEPA filter, you can effectively remove up to 99% of airborne particles including dust, pet dander, smoke and pollen.
  3. Odor filters – as the filters work, odor particles are removed as well, controlling pet, cooking and other smells.

Homes are places that are pretty laden with allergens and irritants and other pollutants, believe it or not, even more than you experience outside. Just think about all of the dust that you see coating things around the house. And one big thing that is full of dust (and even dust mites) are stuffed animals. We have enough stuffed animals in our house to open our own store and all too frequently they get shoved under the bed or in a corner somewhere just to collect more dust.
