A photo printer with handy carry bucket, the Selphy is perfect for travelling dads. It’s easy to use and rapidly produces quality photo prints from pictures stored on PCs and flash memory cards. It’s not a complicated or particularly powerful printer – it has a few colour presets and red-eye reduction and that’s pretty much all – but its simplicity can be a virtue, especially for technologically challenged dads.

If you’re going to get him this, it might also be worth spreading the word to your siblings – it’s at its best when accompanied by the optional battery pack and Bluetooth adaptor, which are both sold separately.

The Canon Selphy CP770 has an RRP of $189.
