This year dad may have some extra home-time with ample opportunity to make something! Let us help you pick the perfect gift to spark, rekindle or keep burning dad’s maker spirit!
The Adafruit team is hard at work preparing and shipping essential orders for COVID relief. This means we do have some longer ship times and a few items are low in stock. It might be a great time to checkout our digital items. Some items are also available on Digi-Key https://www.adafruit.com/buyfromdigikey, please check the product page for more info.
