Father’s Day is a great time to show your dad how much you love him. There is no better way to show appreciation than to help your dad get healthy. Health and wellness gifts show that you value your dad and you want him to take care of himself. It is also enjoyable and helps your dad stay busy and comfortable as he approaches retirement.
1. The Fitbit Charge 4
Fitbit’s latest fitness tracker, this smartwatch has a wide variety of features to encourage exercise and track progress. This tracker includes GPS to track pace during running. It automatically recognizes multiple types of exercise including swimming. The watch is waterproof to accommodate swimming and showers. In addition to exercise, it tracks sleep cycles to make sure your dad is getting adequate sleep. It will also send him hourly reminders to stand up and help him hit 10,000 steps a day.
2. America the Beautiful Senior Lifetime Pass
Available for people 62 years old and up this pass grants lifetime access to all of the United States’ 2,000 National Parks. The pass is a great way to initiate a bonding experience, as it allows admission to three guests in the vehicle with the pass holder. Unfortunately, because the U.S. Department of the Interior, which issues the pass, has to verify age and citizenship status, the pass cannot be a surprise. Your dad will have to sign an application certifying that he is above 62 years old and U.S. citizen. This pass will keep your dad enjoying the outdoors for years to come.
3. Teeth Whitening Kit

4. Membership to Your Local CSA
Father’s Day falls right in the middle of CSA season. CSA’s or community-supported agriculture are local farms that members buy into. Members periodically receive a box of fresh, local vegetables. This simultaneously supports local businesses and encourages your dad to eat healthily. Fresh, local vegetables are the most delicious and nutritious. They contain the nutrients that grocery store vegetables often lose in transport.
5. Ocean Kayak
Kayaks are a great gift for someone who likes flare and big surprises. Ocean Kayak’s sit-on-top kayaks are affordable, easy to use for beginners, and versatile. Their sit-on-top kayaks can withstand some white water, keeping your dad using his core and putting in maximum effort. They can be used for fitness, fishing, or simply relaxing. However your dad chooses to use his kayak, it will keep him outdoors and active.
6. Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones
Working out is much more fun with music. These headphones have quality audio and are designed specifically for the active listener. They are conveniently shaped to stay in your ears while you are running. They are Bluetooth to prevent unfortunate tangles during exercise and they have integrated Tile technology so that your dad can never lose them. The battery lasts 6 hours fully charged.
7. Pocket Knife
Pocket knives are super-useful, and they don’t deserve the aggressive-dude reputation they’ve acquired over the years. Most fathers always carry a pocket knife to open mail, break down boxes for recycling, cutting stuff and among others. This is also a perfect gift for him that he will never forget as he will be carrying it all the time.
8. Pure Enrichment Ultrasonic Humidifier
Everyone gets the occasional cold. A humidifier can make the experience slightly less uncomfortable. The Pure Enrichment Ultrasonic Humidifier is quiet and has adjustable settings to accommodate different sized rooms. It helps people sleep better in the winter and relieves sinus symptoms. The machine has various light settings to help those who like a little illumination at night.
9. Car Cover
Another useful item you can give your dad is a car cover. The car cover is used when a vehicle is left unused for a while it can help protect vehicles from the weather especially snow or too much sun exposure, from dirt, and other contaminants. Car covers have different types so choose the right covers for your car. It’s not only one of the best things you can give to your dad but also the best thing you can do for your car.
Wellness gifts are simple, fun, and utilitarian. In addition to helping your dad live a long, adventurous life, you can bond with him over a love of wellness, fitness, and the outdoors especially on this special Father’s Day occasion!
