Looking for a last-minute Father’s Day gift? Our top five picks are sure to please the father in your life!

  • MLB.tv subscription (mobile = $39.95, standard = $80, premium = $100)
    If dear old dad is a baseball and gadget fanatic, he will love the ability to stream live baseball games to a laptop, smartphone and compatible t.v. Additional MLB.tv features Dad will enjoy include: in-game highlights and stats, full-game archives, multi-game views.

  • Roku Streaming Player (starts at $59.99)
    If Dad is looking to cut the cable chord but exploring ways to still keep up with his favorite shows, consider Roku, a compact box that connects to a television and streams shows from Netflix, Hulu and other services. We’re huge fans of Roku — check out our review here.

  • Barnes and Noble NOOK Color eReader ($249): if Dad is a book lover, he’ll be thrilled with the compact NOOK Color eReader. It’s Wi-Fi enabled and can be used with a Boingo Mobile account that enables Dad to get online to browse the Internet and access email.

    Dads may not travel with too many accessories, but he still needs something to hold his toothbrush and razor at a minimum! Check out the great array of toiletry kits on eBags.com.
