If you have no idea what to get your dad, not to fret… Whether he loves all things outdoors (including grilling, duh) or you’re more likely to find him kicking back with a beverage of choice, there’s something on this list that he will love. It would be much easier if you could bottle up “respect and attention”, (or, you know, remembering to turn out the lights when you leave a room) but these are the next best thing for the dad who says he doesn’t want anything for the holidays (spoiler alert: he does).
Help dad stay zen this winter with an eco-friendly, biodegradable yoga mat from a sustainable brand, Manduka (the mat is made of sustainably harvested tree rubber). Since most of us won’t be going back to the gym any time soon, having a yoga mat on hand makes at-home workouts or meditation a breeze. We like this one because its naturally grippy surface keeps you from slip-sliding around the house.
Beard care is an underrated form of self-care!! Scream it with me. Introduce dad to cleaner, softer, and clarified beards this season. The glycolic acid in Clean Rinse helps to remove any buildup of dead skin, and the vitamin complex and fatty free acids help to nourish the skin.
No more badly brewed (and bad for the environment) k-cups! All one needs is a tablespoon of Jot’s concentrated liquid ultra coffee to get their caffeine fix in the mornings. The purest coffee in the world — 20x more concentrated than traditional coffee. Plus, you don’t need any additional equipment so it’s a gift he can use right away.
Everyone needs a tasteful gym bag to carry all of their workout gear. Even the dad who sometimes tries to convince you that a button-down is appropriate gym wear (talk about taking “day-to-night” too seriously). This 100% Nylon bag (with many pockets!) is guaranteed not to embarrass you or your mother, plus it doubles as a roomy weekend bag.
Maybe your dad has been on edge ever since all the grandkids moved into quarantine, or maybe he is just someone who is permanently on edge. Do him a favor, and give him a pack of CBD-powered chewing gum. Did you know that chewing gum allows for higher bioavailability of CBD to be delivered into the bloodstream? You’ll give him the gift of less stress, focus, better sleep, and less pain after all.
Transform dad’s morning with this revolutionary… TOASTER. This toaster uses steam technology and temperature control to lock in moisture and flavor, plus it looks chic on a countertop. There are five modes: sandwich bread mode, artisan bread mode, pizza mode, pastry mode, and oven mode. My mouth is water just thinking about all the creations he can whip up for you. A community gift really!
Give the gift of smooth skin with this charcoal body scrub that contains nourishing ingredients like coconut, manuka honey, and avocado oil. If this is your dad’s first foray into skincare (and no, washing his face with a bar of soap does not constitute ‘skincare’), he’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out how great his skin can feel, especially once winter dryness sets in.
A family that learns how to cook together, stays together. If your dad is the type of person who enjoys trying new recipes, this southeast Asian starter pack can help feed the soul (literally). With recipes provided, this sampler trio is the shortcut everyone needs to make Vietnamese Lemongrass BBQ, Thai Larb, and Filipino Sisig at home!
By syncing your progress to your smartphone, the jumping rope just got a lot more fun. We are distantly removed from our Jump Rope For Heart days, but the muscle memory lives on. Adjustable rope length, accurate magnetic sensors, and a high-quality handle finish make this the perfect gift your dad did not know he wanted. Make it a competition: who burned the most calories? Jumped rope the longest?
All this effort spent on living a healthy lifestyle only to fall short when it comes to our drinking habits. Good clean wine is shaking up the wine industry with its curation of affordable (yet delicious) wines from Europe. Grown sustainably in small batches, produced naturally, and fewer additives – now that is some good clean fun (and it may help reduce hangovers, which dads will never admit they have, anyway).
