Father’s Day Gift Idea: Matching Dad’s T-Shirt & Onesie Set
Father’s Day Gift Idea: Sporty Sunnies
What’s a great Father’s Day gift for the dad who wants nothing? How about a new pair of shades? Father’s Day is the perfect time to outfit Daddy in a cool new pair of this must-have summer accessory, like these Maui Jim Unisex-adult Peahi Wraps with Polarized lens. Polarized lens help protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays and reduce squinty glare in summer and beyond. Other hot looks for Dada include Maui Jim Local Kine 61 MM wraps or the Hema Rimless.
Dad-themed Baby Books
Reading is a bonding activity, and when Daddy is at the heart of the story and reads to your baby, it might just make your heart melt to witness the whole dad-book-baby-bonding thing.
After cocooning in quarantine, a fitness tracker can help data Dad get back in on the action. “Fitness trackers provide data about your workout that can motivate you to push harder, go farther or work out more often,” says Cat Kom, lead trainer and founder of Studio Sweat, a fitness studio in San Diego, California and Studio Sweat OnDemand, a workout app with an integrated fitness tracker. So step it up!
If you just want to get moving, a basic Fitbit, such as the Charge 3, is a good way to go. “It’s incredible how even a basic fitness tracker can motivate you,” Kom says. Generally, fitness trackers will have a primary focus. For the FitBit, it’s tracking steps. The wearable wristband tracks daily steps as well as other motivating data, such as calories burned and the hours you’re active versus stationary during the day.
For an upgrade, check out the Polar A370 fitness tracker. It monitors steps and tracks heart rate 24/7. Smart feature: It uses technology to auto calibrate as your fitness level changes. As Dad gets in better shape, for example, his resting heart rate will likely go down. Polar will automatically update that information in his profile in the corresponding free app, Polar Beat, as your fitness level improves. With this personalization, Dad can customize his workout.
Dad-inspired Baby Carrier
New dads can use any baby carrier, but this one, by Mission Critical, has an adventurous Dad vibe, don’t you think?
For runner Dads, a hydration belt, which holds a water bottle comfortably at the hip, is a key accessory that can help make any jogging route more comfortable. The AiRun Hydration Belt (ater bottle not included) keeps a water bottle close to the hip without shaking and contours to the body’s curves for a comfortable carrying experience.
A diaper bag that’s fashionably gender neutral and functionable is great a Father’s Day gift for today’s multitasking dads. This unisex backpack by Ruvalino, for example, features a padded laptop pocket, changing pad, mesh pocket organizers and insulated bottle pockets, with 14 additional pockets spacious enough to hold baby and other life essentials.
Men’s Customized Leather Bracelet
What to get a father who has everything? How about a wrist wardrobe conversation piece? Men’s bracelets can show off your guy’s confidence, personality and family devotion. This leather bracelet can be personalized with the names of your kiddos.
Dads and babies will love sports-themed baby gear. Baby Fanatic offers licensed NFL, MLB and collegiate baby and toddler products, including pacifiers, baby bootie high tops, blankets and more. For something less team-specific, these Nuk sports pacifiers are cute, too.
Sweet Father’s Day Gift Idea: Texas English Toffee
If Dad has a sweet tooth, Choccolate’s Fine Chocolates & Toffee is the most decadent of delights. Made with love in Marble Falls, Texas by husband and wife team, Steve and Michele Parsons, each buttery bite features secret-recipe English toffee covered with Texas pecans and Callebaut Belgium chocolate. BabyProductsMom discovered Choccolate’s English Toffee in her travels to the Texas Highland Lakes region. The dark and milk chocolate options are equally divine; there’s white chocolate variety too.
Daddy Photo Frame
Whether Daddy is working from home or social distancing at the office, a family photo is a must-have desk accessory everyone will love.
For Dad’s who love beer and tinkering, how about a home brew kit? The Craft a Brew Home Brewing Kit helps turn beer lovers into beer brewers. Dad will learn to make German-style Hefeweizen. The kit is designed for first-timers and hobbyists.
And who knows? Home brewing might even turn into a side gig. BabyProductsMom is inspired by Save the World Brewing, a Texas craft beer brewery that donates 100% of its profits to charity, such as Habitat for Humanity and Meals on Wheels. “It all started when my husband, Dave, got a home brew kit,” says cofounder Qwynn Rathkamp. Fifteen years and countless home brews later, the Rathkamps, who are physicians, gave up their thriving medical practices to found the benevolent brewery.
