Is your dad or husband an active guy? Or maybe he aspires to be? This Father’s Day, get him a gift that will encourage him to take care of himself and bring him closer to his fitness goals.
Most men don’t treat themselves to items they view as ‘luxury,’ either because they’re a little stingy or maybe because it simply doesn’t occur to them to take care of themselves in this way. That’s where you come in. This year, surprise Dad or Hubbie with a special treat just for him!
Here are 10 great Father’s Day gift ideas for active men:
This is the perfect gift for techie dads who are also into fitness. There are now several ‘life tracking’ devices on the market that help you track personal data like sleep quality, calories consumed, moods, activity and more. Two of the most popular life tracking devices are the Jawbone Up that works with iPhone and the Fitbit that works with Android or Apple devices.
If Pop is striving to maintain a healthy diet, grilling is a great way to go. There’s no need to use oils for cooking, so grilling saves a ton of calories. Since outdoor grilling isn’t possible year-round, a George Foreman grill is a perfect alternative. Just plug it in on the kitchen counter and grill away. Its special design also eliminates the meat fats as you cook!
I know it may sound cheesy, but guys need to relax and unwind, too. Many men would never even consider treating themselves to the luxury of a massage or a pedicure. But they can be great ways to help dad mellow out, either by soothing sore muscles or caring for those battered feet!
If your father or husband work out at home, the TRX system can be an excellent tool to add to the home gym arsenal. He can use it to do exercises that traditional dumbbells and weights don’t allow for. It’s also portable, allowing him to take it with him on business or family trips.
If your dad is anything like mine, he may still be wearing his same vintage New Balance sneakers from the 80s for his trips to the gym. Since you know he’s probably too cheap to splurge for new shoes, give the fella a helping hand. Buy him a Foot Locker Gift Certificate so that he has no choice but to finally get some new kicks!
If your dad or husband work out at the gym, you can help them stay organized and avoid germs with a Sweteez Antimicrobial Towel. This towel has a special zipper pocket for him to stash his cel phone, locker key, wallet and more. It’s treated with a special silicone coating that inhibits germs including MRSA and staph that are often found at health clubs, and keeps his belongings safe from touching public surfaces.
If your dad loves meat, he’ll love a gourmet barbecue sauce kit to help him change up the flavors of his grilling creations. Pig of the Month has a great BBQ sauce sampler with four flavors, or create your own kit by picking three Harry and David gourmet barbecue sauce flavors.
Man crates are gift boxes for guys, and there’s something here for every man. Choose from Carnivore, Survivalist or Athlete, and more. With tons of options, you’ll find a perfect Man Crate for your dad.
When you see these you’ll want to order yourself a box, too! If your dad or husband like the portability of nutrition or protein bars for keeping their nutrition goals on track, they’ll LOVE being able to customize their own bars with tailor-made ingredients. YouBar lets you choose bar size, ingredients, protein powder type and sweeteners to make your own flavors and even supplement combinations. The perfect gift card for any guy who’s dedicated to his health.
