8 Father's Day Gifts That In No Way Resemble a Tie (Hint: They're Cool!)12:24 PM
Remember the old days? When Father's Day = some not-at-all innovative gift giving opportunity? Well, things have changed. Thanks to so many amazing shopping outlets, you can now get your dad, husband, or son a gift that no one else will be giving them (unless they are all reading this blog.)
We believe that unique guys need unique gifts, and we really do want them to enjoy what they receive! Check out our favorite picks for Father's Day awesomeness. We think you might find at least ONE item that will really make their day! (And be sure to go to the bottom of this post to see how to enter cash to shop!)
1. H-Joint & Muscle Formula
Homeopathic and essential oils are kind of a big deal, we know. That's why we were personally thrilled to find a joint and muscle formula that is meant for amazing rub downs for tired shoulders and necks. My husband works hard, and there are days that his stiff, old muscles can't take what the day throws at him. This pleasant-smelling oil combo contains arnica, which is super-useful in dealing with muscle, back, and limb pain! (It is also effective against bruising.)
*For an extra thoughtful gift, pair the oil with a Knobble to get at those muscle knots and really work pressure points!
2. BulletSafe Vest
*Did you know that a reliable vest can run in the hundreds, if not thousands of dollars? We like that BulletSafe has made protection available to everyone, with a price tag of under $300!
3. Your Slyce
Pizza is a pretty personal thing. If the dad at your house is particular about his toppings, you should consider an innovative gift like Your Slyce! This clever slice separator allows you to get crazy with the toppings, without any cross-contamination. That means we can put mushrooms on my piece and keep them away from hubby's piece (which keeps him from getting grossed out!) It's oven-safe to create a super yummy way to make everyone, especially Dad, happy!
*Make your pizzas even more personal; add interesting butter blends and oils to the crust. The Your Slyce will keep those crusts separated!
4. Kase Phone Cover
*If Dad isn't in the market for a case, what about a powerbank? Charge on the go with a take-with-you charging tool; KASE will customize it for you!
5. The Finest Hours
Perhaps one of the most heart-stopping, interesting, and based-on-a-true-story films we've seen in awhile, this Chris Pine feature tells the tale of a heroic coast guard rescue that defies odds and captures hearts. We watched this Disney movie with the whole family, and even though it is rated PG-13, it's mostly for all the peril. Give it to dad and show him that you truly have taste in guy flicks (while really enjoying the cast for yourself!)
*Disney Movies Anywhere comes with every DVD and Blu-Ray, making it possible for Dad to take the movie on the road, in a plane, or anywhere he goes. Leave the hard copy at home for the kids!
6. Squatty Potty
Don't laugh, but this may be the BEST gift ever! As much time as we spend in the bathroom, it's time to give Dad a way to stay healthy and keep potty time sacred. We've had a squatty potty in our bathroom for years, and it's truly one of the best investments we've ever made. You can read more about why this invention works, but take our word for it when we say that anything that makes doing the "doody" less stressful is a good purchase to make.
*Oh my goodness! They now make a portable version of the Squatty Potty! Road warriors, rejoice! Dad can now take effortless bathroom enjoyment to hotels, airport bathrooms, or anywhere else he goes. (I'm getting one.)
7. Modes Jogger Click Connect Stroller
We've been using Graco strollers for years. The Click Connect versions are very easy to put together, and this model is pretty much everything an active Dad could ask for! With 5 ways to ride (including infant car seat facing parent or the world, stroller seat facing parent or the world, or traditional), it includes Graco's top-rated SnugRide Click Connect 35 Infant Car Seat! Dad can hit the streets or someplace more rugged with air-filled rubber tires, a safety tether, and red reflectors, too! There's even a place to stash drinks for baby and dad, as well as a smartphone storage area.
*Forget the sunscreen? Dad can stay on-task withe the extra-large canopy with breathable mesh that includes a UV50 rating for baby. He'll be wishing there was a canopy for him, too!
8. Bracketron: Xventure Hunting Mounts
These cool mounts allow Dads to capture hunting action with mounts for rifles and guns, bows and trees! Simply attached your smartphone, and it will deliver 360-degree camera rotation to capture all angles. Each includes a ¼” comb adapter for most gadgets, and is lightweight and comfortable for active wear and lifestyles.
*Need a camera to go with that mount? The GoPro Hero is a great buy and perfect for all levels of experience.
BONUS GIFT: Snag some bacon for the man in your life. In fact, buy two bags because you'll want some, too!
