Unique Father's Day gift ideas for the Fit Dad
Every year when Father's Day rolls around, a lot of people rack their brains for gift ideas for their dad.
Us dads are notorious for saying things like "don't get me anything," or "I don't need any gifts," which, I get it, can be frustrating. The good thing is, if your dad is a Fit Dad, there are some tried and true gift ideas that he'll be sure to enjoy.
Many dads will use fitness and exercise gear until it completely wears out, so things like new shoes, an exercise watch, gym bags, or resistance bands or dumbbells to replace his old or worn-out equipment are typically safe and reliable bets.
But if you're looking for something more, here are three unique Father's Day gifts ideas your dad will love ... guaranteed.
1. Clothing he can actually wear
Most Fit Dads — myself included — will tell you that if they could, they'd wear their gym clothes all day every day. But that's not always possible, as not many workplaces look favorably on wearing gym shorts and a tank top.
But finding "regular" clothes that fit a more muscular body type can be a pain.
That's why you should check out Barbell Apparel. From jeans to polos to workout clothes, Barbell Apparel's gear fits the athletic body type with an incredibly comfortable fit and style. You can even use the code "FITDAD" at checkout for 10% off your order.
2. Grill-worthy meats
A lot of dads pride themselves on being masters of the grill. Why not get your father something worthy of his fire- and smoke-charred domain?
I recently had a chance to try out Feltman's of Coney Island hot dogs, which are made from the original hot dog recipe first created in 1867. They are nitrate-free, uncured hot dogs with no artificial ingredients, and the taste is absolutely delicious.
I highly recommend Feltman's of Coney Island hot dogs, and I've also heard awesome things about Butcher Box, a monthly meat delivery service.
3. Body recovery services
Sports massages, chiropractic sessions, cryotherapy — you can't go wrong with any of these "pampering" services to help your Fit Dad recover from the aches, pains, and soreness that comes with exercising.
I recently tried bio-electric massage, and it was the best massage I've ever had. Think of it as a deep-tissue massage without any actual pressure placed on your body. If you can find a masseuse near you that offers this service, get a session for your dad pronto!
Even if your dad feels a little uncomfortable with being doted on or going to a spa, I'd be willing to bet he will appreciate these types of services and special treatments.
