It’s that time of the year again. We check our calendars and make a note in the back of our minds that June 17th is Father’s Day. But as that weekend creeps closer, we realize that once again we are going to have to scramble for a gift. Here’s a list of 5 things you can get your dad to make it a fit Father’s Day!
By Abby Cronin
- Fitness Watch – This really is a gift that keeps giving. With options that range from simple to high-tech, fitness tracker watches come in a variety of styles that your dad can use every day. Interchangeable bands mean the watch can be used in the gym, in the office, or out to dinner in a matter of seconds.
- Meal Delivery Service – We all love the taste of greasy takeout, but what really seals the deal is the convenience factor. What if that delivered-to-your-door factor was also healthy? Services like Blue Apron, HelloFresh, and Sun Basket deliver high quality ingredients to your house which make cooking as simple as microwaving a t.v. dinner. Meal kit delivery services are a trend that everyone can enjoy, even Dad.
- Fitness/Health Magazine Subscription – Dad has always loved to read the morning paper, but magazines could be a great way to switch it up. If your dad is into tech, digital subscriptions are the new big thing. This means that if he has an iPhone, iPad, or Kindle, he’ll be able to access hundreds of publications at the touch of a button.
- Ember Mug – This high-tech mug is a refreshing spin on a classic gift. The Ember Mug allows you to control the temperature of your beverage, which is especially good for Dad’s pre-workout coffee. It even comes in a travel version, making it great to take along on hikes or walks. Get it here: https://ember.com/products/ember-mug
- Noise-Cancelling Headphones – While this gift certainly would have been great when you were younger (and louder), it’s still one of those gifts that will never go out of style. Companies like Bose and Beats by Dre make wireless options too, which make it easy to move and listen at the same time. Get them here: https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/headphones/earphones.html
