1) FlipLok High Security Door Lock


The FlipLok is a secondary door lock that is fast and simple to use. It provides 10x the strength of a traditional deadbolt. I have one protecting my home and you should, too!

2) Home Security: The Secure Dad’s Guide

Does your dad check all of the doors before he goes to bed every night? If so, this book is perfect for him. Home Security: The Secure Dad’s Guide will help you learn how to see your home through the eyes of a criminal and then make a plan to keep criminals out.

iPhone users may need to search Amazon app for "The Secure Dad".

3) Troomi Wireless Smartphone for Kids

If you'd like for your children to have a smartphone to talk, text, and play games... but NOT have access to the entire internet or social media apps, Troomi is for you!

Use code: THESECUREDAD at checkout for $50 off a phone. Check out my full review.

4) NOCO Boost Plus GB40

My NOCO Boost Plus has bailed me out of a jam before. I suggest you carry a jump starter in every car you take on a road trip this holiday season. As a bonus, the NOCO can be used as a power bank with USB ports for device charging.

5) Apple AirTag

The Apple AirTag has endless possibilities. Keep track of and find your items alongside friends and devices in the Find My app. A simple one-tap setup instantly connects AirTag with your iPhone or iPad. Place one on your kids, in your car, or in your kid's bookbag for easy locating.

6) BLUETTI Portable Power Station EB3A

I own this inverter and I love it! With a 600W AC inverter, 268Wh LiFePO4 battery pack, and 9 outlets, this power station will keep your essential devices powered on the go or during a home power outage. No bulky power brick, a single cable is good to charge it.

7) DeleteMe Privacy Service

Protect your personal, private information from sketchy people-search websites. With help from DeleteMe, they'll remove your private data from being sold on hundreds of websites across the internet.

Use code: DAD at checkout for 20% off a privacy plan for yourself or a family member.

8) GearLight Camping Lanterns

I've been impressed with GearLight products and these lanterns do not disappoint. With multiple modes - Bright, Brighter, Brightest, - they will be essential for your next camping trip or power outage.

9) High Speed Daddy MOAB Jr. Bundle

No holiday gift guide from The Secure Dad is complete until you have an excellent product from High Speed Daddy. This is the MOAB Jr. bundle that is only found on the HSD website. It includes the HSD diaper bag, lunch bag, IFAK bag, and water bottle holder. I have all of these items and use them all the time without fail.

Use code: SECUREDAD at check out for 10% off your entire order.

10) Shield Pepper Spray

Shield Protection Products is owned and operated by two active-duty law enforcement officers. This flip-top spray is designed to be used under pressure to stop an attacker in his tracks. (Available in many colors.)

Use code: SECUREDAD10 for 10% off your entire order.

11) SLNT Faraday Phone Sleeve

SLNT makes a variety of Faraday solutions for phones, tablets, laptops, and car keys. I can attest that they do take your devices off-grid and protect them from cellular, wi-fi, Bluetooth, EMF, RFID, and GPS signals.

Use code: THESECUREDAD for 10% off your entire order.

12) JBL Clip 4: Portable Speaker with Bluetooth

I very much enjoy my CLIP4 from JBL. I use it for working outside, in the house, and even working on the car. The sound is great and starts up fast. The clip is great for attaching it to a backpack or whatever is around you.

13) NordVPN Subscription

Keep NordVPN active on up to 6 devices at once or secure the entire home network by setting up VPN protection on your router. Compatible with Windows, macOS, iOS, Linux, Android, Amazon Fire TV Stick, and others.

NordVPN offers The Secure Dad community 59% off a two-year plan plus 3 extra months!

14) Owala FreeSip Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle with Straw

People say this water bottle will change your life. I have one and I understand the hype. You can sip out of it through the straw, or use the free pour lid to drink out of it. There are no parts to swap, sip the way you want.

15) Ring Alarm 8-piece kit

Do-it-yourself home security with Ring. If you have a Ring doorbell already, then upgrade your home's security with an 8-piece home security system. If you can use double-sided tape and connect a device to your Wi-Fi, then you can install this system.

16) Sennheiser Consumer Audio HD 450BT Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless Headphone

These are the best headphones I've ever had. I use them to master The Secure Dad Podcast. I use active noise cancellation for uninterrupted listening pleasure. The 450BTs have a 30-hour battery life with USB-C fast charging.

17) Streamlight Stylus Pro LED PenLight

Yes, the Streamlight Stylus Pro has been on this list before, and with good reason. I carry this light as part of my EDC - day in and day out. I've dropped this light, gotten it wet, and abused it for years and it still works great. This makes a great stocking suffer.

18) The Secure Dad Family Home Security Assessment

The Secure Dad Family Home Security Assessment will help you secure your home and protect your family. This 12-page checklist offers tips and techniques for securing your home and property. You'll be able to create a safer environment while increasing your home's curb appeal.

19) Blink Video Doorbell

Answer your door no matter where you are from your smartphone with 1080p HD day and infrared night video and two-way audio. Experience long-lasting battery life, custom alerts, privacy settings, and more.

20) VIBELITE Extendable Magnetic Flashlight with Telescoping Magnet Pickup Tool

This is my pick for this year's most popular gift for men. I suspect there will be one in my stocking this year. With a flexible, magnetic light, retrieving my 10mm socket will be much easier.


Merry Christmas and have a wonderful holiday season. I hope a gift from this guide will help you put a smile on the face of the Secure Dad in your life.


Remember when you go holiday shopping, do your best to hide your items in your car in the trunk or cargo area. This will help you avoid a potential break-in.
