Father’s Day is this weekend and we want to help with some healthy gift ideas for dad. Instead of the same old tie or after shave, maybe you could promote a little fitness or healthy cooking. A great way to get started is to sign dad up for TNT’s Free Consultation. There he can learn about our customized plans that help him attain weight, health and sports performance goals. Bonus – We are a BCBS provider and our Nutritional Services may be covered.
In the meantime, here are some gift ideas to help keep that special guy fit and active.
These handy gadgets feature all kinds of functions from tracking movement to monitoring sleep. 2018 offers some popular, new models like the Garmin Vívofit Fitness Band which counts calories, monitors your sleep and gets you motivated by the Garmin Move Bar, which lets you know right away, as soon as you’ve been inactive for too long. Another is the Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband, one of the more popular options, that is surprisingly affordable, syncs with Android and iPhone, is splash and sweat resistant and tracks sleep and movement which can then upload directly to your cloud account.
Wireless Sport Headphones
Sometimes there’s nothing better than some great tunes to keep your workout on track. Groomandstyle.com suggests the Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones. These are sweat and weather resistant, have a 6 hour runtime, optional heart rate monitor, and are super comfortable.
Many guys want to be more active but don’t realize that doing so comfortably requires the right pair of running shoes. To help encourage dads to get outside and exercise more, consider giving them a pair of running shoes that are lightweight and engineered for intense physical activity. It can be tough to pick out the right pair of running shoes without your dad present, so consider buying him a gift card to a store that sells high-quality running shoes. If you do choose to purchase them yourself, be sure to speak with a knowledgeable store representative.
It’s officially grilling season and a bbq grill is a good way to help promote healthy cooking. Obviously, barbeque or grilled meat isn’t always healthy. However, grilling does help to remove unnecessary oils and fats. Some of the better quality gas grill brands include Lynx, Weber, Blaze and Napoleon. Bbqguys.com has some great suggestions that include reviews and various features.
Grilling Tools & Olive Oil
If dad already has a grill, or one is a bit out of your budget, get him some cool grilling tools and/or olive oil. We’re not talking about the giant bottle that you can get at the grocery store but a nice, high quality olive oil from a specialty store. Olive oil, which contains healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, has been shown to help in the fight against high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, and heart disease. As far as the grilling tools, there are plenty of kits that come with all the essentials or you can check out “12 Great Grill Gadgets” at coolmaterial.com.
Is he a fan of hiking, traveling or just being on the go? Groomandstyle.com suggests the North Face Unisex Big Shot Backpack. This pack features North Face’s FlexVent technology to avoid sweaty back syndrome, easy access to the cavernous space inside, plus a suitcase style handle that your travel-loving recipient will find to be a pleasant surprise.
Swiss Army Knife
You can’t go wrong with a classic. The Victorinox Swiss Army Classic is built to last a lifetime, and would make a great gift for anyone who loves spending time outdoors. As one of Victorinox’s simplest options, the Swiss Army Classic features: Blade, Nail File, Screwdriver, Scissors, Key Ring, Tweezers and a Toothpick. To add a special touch, choose one with custom graphics or have it engraved.
Whatever it is you decide to do for your dad or husband, as long as it’s done with care and some thought, he’s sure to love it.
Happy Father’s Day!
