When it comes to those on your shopping list, Dad might just be the toughest person to buy for. A nice tie? Been there. A toolkit? Done that. If you’ve exhausted the gift-giving options for the guy who seemingly has everything, read on—we have unique, wellness-driven Father’s Day gift ideas to celebrate Dad’s special day.
Best face forward: Myth: Women are the only ones who pay attention to things like skin-care products. Fact: Men like to look good, too! (They sometimes just need a little bit of guidance.) Guys tell us they love Kiehl’s new anti-aging line, Age Defender for Men. This trio of men-friendly products (Age Defender Power Serum, Age Defender Moisturizer, and Age Defender Eye Repair) utilizes cypress, linseed, and rye seed extracts and capryloyl salicylic acid (LHA) to combat aging concerns like wrinkles, lack of elasticity, and under-eye bags. Starting at $30; kiehls.com
Game changer: Whether it’s Dad, Gramps, or Uncle Jon, the fitness guy in your life will be pumped about sporting the new Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch. Built-in features include all-day activity tracking (think calculating calories burned, steps taken, hours slept, etc.), PurePulse™ heart rate, on-screen workouts, connected GPS, and more to help keep fitness goals in check. Trackers start at $199.95; fitbit.com
Well-groomed: Dad will look and smell great when you surprise him with one of Duke Cannon Supply Co.’s gift sets (which come complete with cheeky names like Working Man’s Supply Can [$75]). Though less-expensive options like The Dapper Dad Sack ($50) and The Un-Droppable Soap Set ($25) are great choices, we think Dad will adore the manly American Soap and Hatchet Set ($175). This vintage-style military ammo can is filled with a survival hatchet for camping trips, Tactical Soap on a Rope, Bloody Knuckles Hand Repair Balm, and a steel bottle opener. dukecannon.com
Freewheelin’: Dad might just declare you his favorite child when you gift him The Bixby bicycle. Touted as an editors’ choice by Outside Magazine and Bicycling Magazine, The Bixby is designed to blend the style of a cruiser bike with enhancements such as a Shimano 3-speed internal hub. Available in navy or dark green. $1,950; shinola.com
One gift card, countless options: For all Dad’s done for you, give him the gift that truly counts—a bit of chill time. A Spafinder Wellness 365™ Gift Card is good for a much-needed massage, heart-pumping fitness class, personal training session, and numerous other wellness offerings. (We also love that the gift card never expires, so Dad can use it when he’s ready.) spafinder.com
