Just say, “Alexa, give me gift ideas for Father’s Day”
Father’s Day is coming up fast, on June 20, 2021. And let’s face it: Dads are hard to buy for.
Alexa can help, with loads of gift ideas in themes from Tech to Sports to Home & Kitchen, each available for under $50.
When I asked Alexa for ideas, she suggested an attachable light for the inside of a cooler, which is just the kind of little gadget my husband will love. It never even occurred to me that such a thing existed — thanks, Alexa!
Here’s how you can get some ideas for the dads in your life:
- Just say, “Alexa, give me gift ideas for Father’s Day.” She’ll respond with a category idea, and different ways to approach it—say, buying a new gadget for his workbench or a spice kit for grilling.
- If you like the category suggestion, say “Alexa, tell me more” and she’ll offer specific suggestions, along with price and the soonest it can be delivered. If you like her suggestion, you can add it to your cart or purchase it.
- If you don’t like that suggestion but want to keep exploring the category, say “Alexa what else?”
- If you want to change to a different category, say “Alexa, next.”
