Want to get your dad a smart speaker but you’re also tempted by a streaming device? Get the Amazon Fire TV Cube and you’ll have the best of both worlds. It offers all the benefits of the Fire TV Stick allowing your dad to watch his favorites on Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, and more, but it also works as an Alexa smart speaker. He can ask Alexa to check the weather, turn the lights off, control all his smart home equipment, and do everything that Alexa can do. That’s even if the TV is switched off. It’s the ideal all-in-one solution if you want to make his home a little smarter and you want to make streaming options simpler to use.

Amazon Fire TV Recast — $150, was $230

With a huge $80 off the usual price, the Amazon Fire TV Recast is a tempting proposition right now. It’s a DVR at heart but it’s smarter than most, too. With two tuners, you can use it to record up to two shows at once, with room to store up to 75 hours of content. Tied to a compatible Alexa-enabled device, you can use your voice to search for shows and manage recordings. Best of all, you can take those recordings with you with the ability to use the Fire TV mobile app to watch your shows via Wi-Fi regardless of your location. If your dad is more nuts about DVR technology than he is about streaming content, this is the ideal gift for him. It’s far better than your average DVR.

Forget Apple TV: Roku Streaming Stick 4K is $30 for Prime Day
Roku Remote.

With so many smart TVs out there, it's easy to forget that many folks still have 'dumb' TVs or don't want to use their TV's smart TV platform. That's where standalone streaming devices like Roku sticks come in, allowing you to add some serious smarts to your TV or move to a different smart TV platform. Luckily, there are some great Best Buy Prime Day deals on Roku sticks, like this Roku 4k stick that's going for just $30 at Best Buy.

Why you should buy the Roku Streaming Stick 4K
Up to even just last year, getting a 4k streaming device could easily cost you nearly a hundred dollars, and yet the Roku Streaming Stick 4K gives you that for far less, and if that wasn't enough, you get a few more extra features on top of that as well. For example, it has both HDR and HDR10+, which many streaming sticks don't, and, assuming your TV is compatible, it gives you the ability to run HDR content as if you were on the TV's native smart platform. It also supports DTS Surround Sound, so if you're one of the folks who like to have great audio, you get that as well.

Apple AirPods (2nd-generation) -- $90, was $159

The third-generation Apple AirPods were released last year, but the second-generation Apple AirPods are still a worthwhile purchase from Prime Day AirPods deals, especially if you're on a tight budget.

The wireless earbuds can last up to five hours on a single charge, and with the juice from the charging case, they can last for more than 24 hours. You can also access Apple's Siri through the AirPods -- you just have to say, "Hey Siri."
