The perfect gift for the hard-to-shop for techie dad.
My dad is one of the hardest people to shop for. He really only has a couple of interests — music, movies, and motorcycles — and he typically gets whatever he really wants/needs on his own. So, when it comes to occasions like birthdays or Father’s Day, I have trouble trying to find a good gift for him. I was recently introduced to the awesome sunglasses from Pixel Eyewear and thought, “Now this might be a great gift for Dad!” Not only are they comfortable and stylish, but the glasses from Pixel also provide a lot of safety features that are not typically included with standard eyeglasses.
Pixel Eyeglasses are special because they all filter out blue light emitted by digital devices. They can filter out up to 95% of all blue light. The lenses are balanced between clarity and function. The lenses have no ‘yellow’ tint to them and the frames are built with cellulose acetate — the same material used by high-end eyewear brands. Pixel offers a wide range of vintage and classic styles. The lenses also reduce glare as well as incorporate a new coating nanotechnology that keep the lenses clean and scratch-free. The glasses that I had to try out were the Toro style sunglasses. They come in two different color choices — Greystone or Grey Crystal. The Toro glasses are designed for everyone. They feature a slim rectangular profile and a sharp keyhole bridge. The lenses are polarized and the width is classified as ‘medium’. They come in the size 51–18–142mm.
The Toro Sunglasses make a very good first impression. The glasses are housed in a hard shell case which is sold in an outer box. Both the outer box and case have the Pixel logo engraved into them. I like that the glasses are in their own case inside the box. It ensures that they won’t be damaged when the owner unwraps them for the first time. To me, this is a BIG deal. So many products are improperly shipped these days. It’s nice to see that Pixel thought about protecting these glasses. I’m sure their other models…
