Thoughtful Gifts Your Dad Would Love
(almost in spite of himself!)
Unless your dad loves ties, plays a sport he is passionate about, or is an avid collector of something (stamps, baseball cards, etc.), figuring out what to give him for Father’s Day can be a tough call. Sure, you know that he will gladly accept whatever you present him, but unless you manage to find something that he sees a need for in his life, chances are that it will simply be shoved into a dark closet corner and forgotten, just like the countless other gifts he received in other years.
This year might just be different though, as our gift guide has been carefully curated to include products that are bound to make it into his personal care routine, and his no-muss, no-fuss lifestyle.
Why it’s good for dad:
- Abundant source of omega fatty acids 3, 6, 7, and 9 – the good kind of cholesterol that actually supports weight loss
- Helps activate sustained energy levels throughout the day
- Promotes more robust hair and nail growth, stronger nails – perfect for dads who never want to bother with a lot of personal care products
- Antioxidants help with stress levels, promotes optimal sleep
The first Father’s Day celebration was in Spokane, WA. Dodd and her siblings were singlehandedly raised by their father after their mother died in childbirth. Dodd began a campaign to have Father's Day officially recognized but it would only be in 1966 that this holiday would be put on the official national calendar.
