29 Father's Day gift ideas for your fit dad

Dad can only acquire so many socks, ties, and underpants. So this year, treat your papa (or husband, or son) with gifts that will cater to his grilling prowess, daily gym sessions, or appreciation for a little manly pampering. We’ve got gift ideas for every budget to celebrate Father’s Day in a fit, healthy, and happy way (though we can’t promise this is a sock-free list).

For the foodie father

1Meat Monogrammer
In the spirit of man's inherent yearning to mark their territory at all times, we love the idea of this grilling personalization tool. We think this tool will make Pops extra proud of those steaks and burgers… branded with his very own initials. $69.95 for one custom branding tool and cutting board

2. Injectable Marinade Grilling Kit
Slathering the surface of grilling grub with marinade is so last year. Bring dad to the 21st century with this easy-to-use marinade injector. The set also includes three jarred marinades, two cans of dry seasoning, and a bottle of red pepper sauce. Not only will Dad’s grilling goods look nice with a fancy monogrammer (see above), it’ll taste good, too. $24.99

3. Beer Making Kit
Dads and beer go together like golf balls and golf clubs (…and dads and golf). Get creative and give Dad DIY hops with a beer making kit. Peruse Brooklyn Brewshop’s online shop for fun flavors — such as chocolate maple porter and grapefruit honey ale — if your pops is a little more adventurous with his beer preferences.  $40 per kit; $90 for the Quarterly Brew Club

4. Homemade Gin Kit
If beer isn’t your dad’s drink of choice, he may be a fan of this super easy to make gin kit (no bathtub necessary). It’s affordable, and takes all of 36 hours to whip up. $39.95 per set; botanical spice refills available for $10

5. Whiskey Stones
To chill whiskey without diluting it, try these fancy whiskey stones. Milled at the oldest soapstone workshop in the US, these beverage chillers mean business. Plus they look super duper manly. $20

For the tech-savvy daddy

8. Fitbit Flex 
If your dad’s a busy guy, help him keep track of his fitness. This tracker allows users to check out stats in real-time — calories, distance, and steps taken — with Bluetooth 4.0 (syncing occurs automatically anytime Flex is within about 20 feet of a computer or Bluetooth Device). $99.95

9. Cord organizer
Make sure Dad stays tangle-free with the Cordito — a simple way to wrap up earbuds, USB cables, and plugs. This gift is genius. Nothing like a burrito for Dad’s chargers! $39.99

10. iPhone Armband
The LifeProof case, made for iPhones, is comfortable for all sorts of sweaty workouts. Built to withstand seawater, dirt, snow, and high vibration environments, this band is suitable for all situations from lawn mowing to snow shoveling. $49.99

11. Shock-Resistant Watch
The Timex Ironman Shock-Resistant 30-Lap is perfect for dudes who want a solid watch with a few fancy features (and without a super hefty price tag). For dads who like to run, this watch has lap and split recalls, plus it’s made with durability in mind. $60.00

For the outdoorsman

13. Plantable Comic Books 
Make planting herbs and flowers more manly with these plantable comic books. While the comic books simply contain instructions and no real storyline, Dad can get his flower power on with style. Starting at $9.50

14. Sunscreen
Grab Dad a body mist sunscreen so he has no excuse not to stay protected when mowing the lawn, swinging some clubs, or just enjoying a few brews outside. Of course there’s a range of SPF protection and a million different types of sunscreens on the market, but here's a good place to start. Starting at $4.99

15. Sun-protective Clothing
When sunscreen just won’t do it, protective clothing can help shield Dad from Mr. Sunshine, too. This shirt blocks 98 percent of harmful UV rays. Made up of sweat-wicking fibers and breathable fabric, Dad can stay cool, dry, andprotected while hanging on the golf course or bball court. $29.99 for the Short-Sleeve Fitness Shirt; other styles available starting at $19.99

For the gym rats

19. Foam Roller Bundle
Help Dad ease aches and pains with this awesome SMRT-CORE grid foam roller and instructional DVD. Dad will learn the go-to moves (and stay safe) with a little coaching from the level-one DVD. $49.99 for the foam roller and DVD

20. Personal Training Sessions
Not all dads are up on the latest fitness trends. Give pops the gift of health with a few personal training sessions. After training with a professional for just a few hour-long sessions, Dad can use his newly found gym knowledge to stay fit on his own. Prices vary based on gym and location.

21. Sweat-Wicking Towel
Help Dad stay dry at the gym with the Nano Silver towel, which promises to eliminate odor-causing bacteria. Made out of soft and super absorbent bamboo, the towel also utilizes nanosilver particles, a natural antimicrobial agent (sure to keep Dad from being the stinky dude at the gym). $20.50 per towel

For the pampered papa

24. “Help, I Have Problems” Kit
Dads are great about fixing other people’s problems (a Band-Aid here, a little peroxide there… you know the drill). Time to pay it forward with the Help kit — six mini tins with remedies for sleep, blisters, aches, headaches, sleepiness, or nausea. Dad will be happy to stash the kit in his glove compartment and always have it on hand. $30.00

25. Manly Candles
While it’s probably not likely Dad will draw a bath and line the tub with lavender aromatherapy candles, it doesn’t mean he won’t enjoy up to 45 hours of manly fragrance. Yankee Candle’s line of man candles — from “Mmm, Bacon!” to “Riding Mower” — allow Dad to kick his feet up and relax a little. $27.99 for the 3-pack set

26. Birchbox for Men
Birchbox takes the guesswork out of gift giving. Each gift box (one per month for three months) is stuffed with lifestyle and grooming products from shave balms to sunglasses (Dad’s going to be so stylish!). $60.00 for a 3-month subscription

  • A pair of escalator mechanics have been arrested after police say they tampered with an escalator in the Langham Place mall in the Mong Kok area of Hong Kong, causing a dangerous situation. They were questioned after an incident in which the escalator abruptly changed directions, sending passengers plummeting to the ground floor of the mall. Eighteen were injured; one man was hospitalized in serious condition for a head wound. >> Read more trending news In a statement obtained by CNN, Otis Elevator Co. spokesperson Ian Fok called the arrest of its employees “a surprise.” He added, “Our legal team is working with law enforcement to clarify the situation and intends to defend our mechanics.” Video obtained by the South China Morning Post shows the moment the escalator changed directions, eliciting screams from dozens of people riding at the time.
  • A Canadian man will have to come up with a new vanity license plate, or decide to go with the standard tag, after he was told his plate could be misinterpreted. >> Read more trending news  Lorne Grabher has had his last name on his license plate for decades, but a few months ago received a letter from the Nova Scotia Registry of Motor Vehicles has canceled the plate after 25 years, CBC reported. That’s because others “can misinterpret it as a socially unacceptable slogan.” Grabher is now calling out Nova Scotia officials for discrimination. The Department of Transportation told the CBC via email that they received a complaint over the plate “as misogynistic and promoting violence against woman” and that they cannot mark that it is a name vs. an action. Nova Scotia has made about 3,100 words not acceptable for license plates including HESHE and GOD4U2.
  • The family of an American slain in last week's attack in London expressed gratitude Monday for the kindness of strangers as they insisted some good would come from the tragedy. Kurt W. Cochran from Utah was on the last day of a European trip celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary when he was killed when an attacker mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before stabbing a police officer in a Parliament courtyard. Cochran's wife, Melissa, suffered a broken leg and rib and a cut head, but is steadily improving. 'So many people have been so kind, and we are deeply touched by their goodness and generosity,' said Melissa Cochran's brother, Clint Payne. 'Your notes, prayers, donations and love have helped us so much.' Attacker Khalid Masood was shot dead by police after his deadly rampage, which police have revealed lasted just 82 seconds. Police believe Masood - a 52-year-old Briton with convictions for violence who had spent several years in Saudi Arabia - acted alone, but are trying to determine whether others helped inspire or direct his actions. Detectives on Monday continued to question a 30-year-old man arrested Sunday and a 58-year-old man arrested shortly after Wednesday's attack. Both were detained in the central England city of Birmingham, where Masood had recently lived. Meanwhile, the British government repeated calls for tech companies to give police and intelligence services access to encrypted messages exchanged by terrorism suspects.
  • Deputies were called to a Broken Arrow home Monday afternoon on a report of three people dead.  It happened near 91st and 241st East Avenue.  Investigators with the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office say three masked people broke into the house.  Our partners at FOX23 tell us the homeowner allegedly shot all three defending himself.  
  • Three days after a GOP health care bill melted down in the U.S. House before a vote, the White House said President Trump is not giving up on his desire to overhaul the Obama health law, as Republicans in the Congress also urged the President to keep pushing ahead on major health insurance changes. “I don’t think it’s dead,” said White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said of the failed GOP health bill, which foundered even after repeated efforts by the President to twist the arms of reluctant Republican lawmakers. “We’re at the beginning of a process. I don’t think we’ve seen the end of health care,” Spicer added, labeling the Obama health law, “an abysmal failure.” Spicer said the White House is currently going through a post-mortem on what went right and what wrong in their effort, as he said members of both parties in Congress had already reached out to both the White House and Mr. Trump about finding some common ground on health care policy. Spicer: Trump has received calls from Republicans and Democrats offering to work with him to improve health care https://t.co/ZQHMnWGI3O — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) March 27, 2017 On Capitol Hill, both parties were still sifting through the embers of the GOP health care bill, which was yanked off the House floor on Friday afternoon before a final vote, clearly short on support, as it divided Republicans along several fault lines. For many GOP lawmakers, the idea of giving up after just 18 days of work on health care changes, was not an option. “We cannot walk away now, without even a vote,” said Rep. Luke Messer (R-IN), a junior member of the House GOP leadership, said on the House floor. “I will continue to fight for a conservative bill to repeal Obamacare and rebuild a people-first health care system,” said Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC). But there was no immediate signal on whether the White House or GOP leaders in Congress would look to tinker with the failed health bill of last week, or maybe start to develop a new plan.
