I'm not a techie, but I'd imagine the best motivation to buy a new iPhone isn't the hi-res camera for taking Instagram pics or the super-fast Internet for buying clothes straight from Facebook, it's to have Siri remind you about all those vagabond holidays. Like Father's Day, which floats between calendar days each year.
I blame its fickle nature for why I'm always spending too much money on either overnight shipping or a stiff cocktail to alleviate late-gift-guilt. I'd like to think Siri would help me, but then again, even my most hyper-organized friends get so busy with current to-do lists that they forget to set future reminders. It happens.
Those friends and I will once again be buying Father's Day presents late enough for Hallmark stores to sprout lines rivaling Whole Foods' at rush hour. Thankfully, the pieces in the slideshow below are such foolproof wins that they nix the entire "what to buy" contemplation time. Plus, they're each available at popular brick and mortar stores as well as online, just in case rush shipping isn't quite speedy enough. (No judgment here.)
