Father’s Day is quickly approaching and if you are still scratching your head as to what to get the special men in your life (dad and husband) then here are a few suggestions focusing on fitness and wellness and all under $50. These are for the low maintenance man–characterizing him as a guy who is driven with career, family and hobbies, but hasn’t spent a lot of time researching things like nutrition, skincare or anti-aging. These thoughtful presents can be part of any incredible dad’s daily routine and sometimes gifting can be a subtle impetus for healthy change.
11 Healthy Father’s Day Gifts Under $50 For The Low Maintenance Dad
Yeti Rambler 30 oz Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tumbler w/MagSlider Lid ($34.99): If dad needs to drink more water this miracle cup can be his constant companion. We have one and it keeps any beverage hot or cold (ice-in-tact), for hours. Plus it’s BPA free, dishwasher safe, non-sweat and huge yet still fits into any standard size cup holder.
Premium MCT Oil ($28): MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides made 100% from coconuts. We blend this in our coffee for a dose of beneficial fats and a way to help with intermittent fasting. This oil is a great way to give dad an extra shot of energy in the morning.
TheraBand Resistance Band Set ($13.30): As you get older, stretching is not optional. These bands should be part of everyone’s home gym. If dad is a runner, golfer or lifter, this band set is an inexpensive, yet wonderful gift to keep his joints limber.
Under Armour Threadborne Siro Half-Zip Shirt ($44.99): This is a just a staple shirt he can throw on after his workout or whenever. It’s universal activewear for dads of all ages.
CeraVe SPF 50 Sunscreen Face Lotion ($11.99): Lots of the suggestions in this post we use daily. This is one of them. Everyone should be wearing sunscreen (duh!), but it’s not enough to just have a high SPF. It should also have zinc oxide and ceramides for broad spectrum protection. CeraVe has these ingredients and since it’s also a lotion dad doesn’t have to use a moisturizer (because your low maintenance dad may not believe in a 2-step facial regimen).
Ray Ban Icons Sunglasses ($40): These add an element of cool sophistication and protect the eyes. Plus if your dad is hard on sunglasses then Ray Bans are amazing at taking a beating.
Mario Badescu Shaving Regimen Set ($30): This is a great brand with wonderful products that moisturize and protect without costing a fortune. I use the facial spray daily and a variety of their masks. This five-piece collection for dad is curated to encourage a smoother shave and to hydrate the skin without being greasy.
Gymboss interval timer and stopwatch ($22): If you have been reading my blog for a while then you know I swear by my Gymboss timer. We have 3 of them for different areas of the home (workout room, pilates reformer area and garage where Geoff lifts). If dad does any sort of interval training then this is a great gift to keep track of his “one minute of madness” when doing difficult exercises.
BBQ Fill and Grill Flexible Grill Basket ($24.95): A healthy tool for any grill-master, this flexible basket lets you stuff it full with vegetables, corn, fish and more. Made of stainless steel with a nonstick coating, the basket has an extra long pakka wood handle that’s removable if grillables are to be covered.
Adidas Originals Adicolor Snapped Track Pants ($47): Throwback tear-aways! Need I say more. The perfect pants for comfort in a rich blue.
Travelon Adjustable All-Purpose Gloves ($23): These leather gloves with adjustable wrist closure are designed to protect dad’s hands when doing a variety of hobbies and activities: weight-lifting, driving, cycling, box handling, general work, gardening, or sailing.
Wishing all the dads a wonderful Father’s Day with their families. xx CC
