Digital Measuring Tape
The guys over at ThinkGeek are always good for some great tech gifts, and I've found one that's perfect for any dad who likes to get out in the garage or the work shed on weekends and make stuff out of wood.
Whether he turns out sawhorse reindeer for all the neighborhood holiday displays or makes high-end furniture that looks like it should be on "Antiques Roadshow," the digital measuring tape from ThinkGeek will make his life easier.
For about $25, he can get an exact digital display showing how far out he's run the tape. This works great for gardening dads, too, when it comes time to plan a garden or space out rows of tomato plants.
Sadly, it will make it harder to lie about how long that fish he caught really was, though.
