If your dad bought himself a brand new 4K TV “for the family”, a Chromecast Ultra makes for a great complimentary gift. This is the updated version of Chromecast that Google released a couple of years ago that takes all the great functionality of the Chromecast and adds support for 4K Ultra HD video.

This is a great gift if your dad is an Android user, as there’s a ton of great apps that work with Chromecast. You can become the favorite child by pairing this gift with a Google Home Mini which would allow dad to cast his favorite shows to the TV using just his voice.

You can pick up a Chromecast Ultra for just $59 at Best Buy.
