With Father’s Day coming up on June 18th, are you thinking of the best gift to give Dad? We at Body + Soul have curated a list of our Top 10 favorite wellness gifts for Dad to help him feel his best and to say thank you for all that you do.
1. Massage Gun
Massage guns are a convenient and effective way to loosen up tight muscles. Whether Dad spends his day working on his feet or sitting at a desk, a massage gun is a great way to relax tight muscles and deal with neck, back, muscle, or nerve (ie sciatica) pain. Put on a little Miracle Sports Cream before you massage for a deeper massage and long-lasting relief.
We tested the top massage guns on the market and our staff pick goes to the Theragun Elite ($348 on Amazon).
While we found other massage guns to be bulky to hold and maneuver, particularly if you have any arthritis in your hands, the ergonomic design of the Theragun Elite helps you hit the tough to reach areas of your back with ease, and comes with 5 different attachments while being capable of 5 different speeds.
Our favorite budget massage gun is the RENPHO at $69.99 on Amazon. Measuring at 7.3 inches high and 7.9 inches long and weighing only 1.5lbs, its compact size makes it perfect for travel and gym bags.
2. Massage Gift Card
Pick up a gift card at your favorite spa so Dad can get some relief and relaxation. If Dad likes to look his best as well as feeling his best, Massage Envy is currently offering a Father’s Day special of 50% off any skin care treatment along with a purchase of a 60 minute massage session. Or gift the massage and keep the skin care voucher! Check out their Father's day Special here.
3. Dr. Squatch Manly Soaps
Dr Squatch is the leading brand of soaps and grooming products with natural ingredients and manly scents. Dad will love the creamy textures and masculine scents such as Wood Barrel Bourbon, Grapefruit IPA, and our staff favorite, Alpine Sage. Pick up their limited edition Star Wars Collection ($38), sure to please your favorite Wookie.
4. Bowflex SelectTech 840 Kettlebell
This is another home gym fan favorite. The Bowflex SelectTech 840 Kettlebell ($149 on Amazon) features 6 weight settings from 8 to 40lbs, and is a compact way to do your kettlebell workouts without taking up too much space.
5. Moji Heated Foam Roller
Foam rolling is a fact of life for those who push their bodies to the limit. Put the removeable sleeve in the microwave for 30 seconds for 30 minutes of heat to help loosen up the muscles and reduce the pain of foam rolling. If you have an athletic Dad in your life, give the gift of recovery with a Moji Heated Foam Roller ($79.99 on Amazon).
6. Roq Innovation LED Baseball Cap
This sweet baseball cap comes equipped with an 8 hour rechargeable LED light that’s perfect for night time outdoor activities like running, hiking, or even for emergency situations. It was named one of Oprah’s Favorite Things in 2022, and we are sure Dad will love it too! You can find it for $27 on Amazon.
7. Athletic Greens
We’ve tried so many superfood green powders on the market, and find Athletic Greens to be one of the most comprehensive as well as best tasting. With 75 vitamins, minerals, and whole-food sourced ingredients that are great for energy, immunity, gut health, and whole body support, this is a great addition to keep Dads healthy and feeling amazing throughout the day. A one month supply on Amazon is $139.99 and includes 30 one-a-day travel packs.
8. A Time-Marked Water Bottle
For those Dads who struggle to drink enough water throughout the day, the Meitagie Water Bottle makes it easy to hit your hydration goals. This 32oz BPA-Free water bottle is marked by the hour between 8am to 7pm to provide benchmarks to keep Dad hydrated all day. And at $9.89 on Amazon, it's a super budget-friendly gift!
9. Hyper-Evaporative Cooling Towels
Another great budget gift for the active Dad, these microfiber mesh cooling towels are the perfect way to cool down after a tough workout or a long day of adventuring outdoors. Simply activate the cooling effect by soaking the towels with water, wringing and placing on the skin for hyper-evaporative effects. You can find these towels in packs of two for $11.99 on Amazon.
10. Miracle Sports Cream
Miracle Sports Cream is best known for providing fast relief for back, neck, muscle, and nerve pain as well as cramps, but did you know that when you put on this therapeutic massage cream before workouts, it makes the workout SO much easier? Simply rub into feet and legs before running, or onto any muscle groups you’ll be using that day (ie arms and chest for Chest Day). The cream will quickly warm up your muscles, cool you down as you sweat, and minimize fatigue so you can push yourself further and work out longer. It also works great post-workout on soreness. This gift is perfect for Dads who are weekend warriors or gym beasts! Or Dads dealing with aches and pains.
A 2oz jar will last 3 months on average, and is $49 for one jar. Or $73.50 for 2 jars if you use the checkout code BOGO50. You can give dad both jars or keep one for yourself!
We hope you found this list helpful in finding a gift that takes care of Dad. We wish all Dads a Happy Father's Day, and thank you for all you do!
