Tablet Computers Popular Gift For Dad

LOS ANGELES (UPI) — A tablet computer is the Father’s Day gift of choice for those who lean toward high-tech, a U.S. retail survey shows.

Of those planning to buy Dad an electronic device for Father’s Day, 48 percent will make it a tablet, 23 percent will choose a smartphone, 20 percent will purchase a computer, 13 percent will buy a camera, and 12 percent will give him a TV, a survey by online shopping portal PriceGrabber found.

However, consumer electronics overall trailed most other product categories for Father’s Day — including tools, auto accessories and appliances (41 percent); hobbies/sports (23 percent); and clothing/accessories (21 percent).

“Consumers are still budget conscience and will look for deals when Father’s Day shopping this year,” Graham Jones, PriceGrabber general manager, told “Even though most shoppers plan to spend under $100 on their dad this year based on our survey data, it’s not surprising to see that retailer tactics such as free shipping, price cuts, sales and coupons will help sweeten the deal when enticing consumers to buy gifts for dad this holiday.”

The survey was conducted April 10-23 among online shopping consumers.
