With father's day only a couple of weeks away, many people are starting to wonder what they should get their husbands and/or dads. So to ease some of the time worrying about shopping at the last minute or postponing seeing the person until a few days after. Here a list of ideas from askmen.com.

The Echo can also help out with the chores, including controlling the thermostat, any outdoor sprinklers, and lock any doors.
