The 3 best websites to shop for Father’s Day gadget gifts under R500

Argh! We love our dads but how do you go about purchasing a gift for the man who has it all? Plus, let’s be honest, gadgets are expensive. Never fear, we’ve found the 3 best websites to shop for Father’s Day gadget gifts AND you can find something rad for under R500. Winning! (The headlines of the shop names link to the relevant site – easy peasy).

Men’s Republic


This sneaky site is filled with novelty items, geeky fun and gadgets galore. While it is a wholesale distributor they show all products at their resale price and you’ll likely be able to buy direct or alternatively contact them to arrange a reseller. While their name says “men” we found a stack of stuff on the site we’d love.

Our pick:


R395 for a 2 in 1 Wireless mouse and presenter. Your dad is going to be well armed for battle the boardroom with this little gadget.



Do we need to say more? These guys are the kings of cool. If you can’t find gadget gifts on their site there may be no hope for you…

Our pick:


In a world of gadgets everyone needs a little bit of organisation. These clever Metal Cordies by Quirky not only neaten up your work space but also look rather slick on your desk. The best part? One will only set you back R199.

Orange Online Store


The South African online store for Orange is a haven for the gadget obsessed and the tech heads. It’s filled with gadget gifts your dad will love. Many of which are priced under R500.

Our pick:


The GalaRing is the perfect gadget gift for the dad who has it all. It looks like a classy piece of jewelry and is able to store personal information like your name, phone number and email. Touch the ring to a smartphone that supports NFC and the data will be shared with the device. Clever. It costs R405. The Orange Online Store also offers free shipping on orders over R1000 so you have the perfect excuse to spoil yourself as well!
