Father's Day is June 16, and if you haven't yet picked out a gift for Dad (or any father figure in your life), now is the time to do so. Here's an assortment of great gift ideas at a variety of prices, ranging from less than $50 up to several hundred.

WHAT Anker 622 MagGo magnetic battery

THE COST $41.99

AVAILABLE FROM anker.com

What's cool about Anker's 622 magnetic battery is that it's a wireless battery that has an integrated magnetic flap that converts into a stand. You won't get fast wireless charging from this 5,000-milliampere hour battery (it charges at up to 7.5 watts) but it's slim and easy to carry around.

It charges via USB-C and if you use a USB-C to Lightning to charge your iPhone, it will charge at a faster rate of 12 watts.

WHAT Bose SoundLink Flex

THE COST $149

AVAILABLE FROM bose.com

When the SoundLink Flex speaker launched, Bose made some bold claims about its new Bluetooth speaker, particularly its bass performance. But it mostly lives up to the hype and is arguably the best-sounding wireless speaker for its compact size.

Available in five colors — black, white smoke, cypress green, chilled lilac and stone blue — it's equipped with Bose's PositionIQ technology to automatically detect the speaker's orientation and deliver optimized sound based on whether it's upright, hanging or flat on its back.

WHAT Amazon Kindle Scribe

THE COST $333.19

AVAILABLE FROM amazon.com

A handful of competing stylus-equipped touch screen E Ink e-readers that double as digital notepads are available from other companies, including Kobo and ReMarkable. But the Kindle Scribe is the only front-lit 10.2-inch E Ink e-reader with a high-resolution 300-ppi (pixels per inch) E ink display.

The Scribe's size and weight make it more of a burden to carry around, especially when you consider the smaller baseline Kindle can fit into a coat pocket. But in all, the Scribe strikes a very good balance between a large-format e-reader and an E Ink note-taking tablet. Folks will probably have some quibbles about the Scribe's high price and the robustness of its markup and note-taking capabilities, but it's already had several software and feature updates.
