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

  • Multiple people had to be rescued early Saturday morning in Rogers County. OTEMS paramedics report a boat started to sink on Oologah Lake just after midnight. “Additional information was received that the boat had its nose in the air, four individuals were in the water, and only one was wearing a PDF (personal flotation device),” an official said. “A Rogers County Deputy spotted what might be the boat south of Winganon Bridge but was unable to determine the precise location. However it was located by the Northwest Water Rescue unit and at 0048 hours the rescue boat reported that it had located the victims and was loading the fourth individual into the boat.” KRMG’s told the victims were hanging onto the hull when they were found. So far, no injuries have been reported.  Officials also haven’t released any names.   We do know the Oklahoma Highway Patrol has taken over the investigation.  
  • Tulsa investigators are looking for a driver who fled the scene, after hitting a male pedestrian late Friday night. Police report the auto-pedestrian collision happened around 11:34 p.m., near East Admiral and North Yale. “The pedestrian victim has been declared deceased at this time,” police said.   Investigators don't have a description of the driver or the car.  Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
  • We know this might start an argument, but according to Business Insider, Oklahoma's most famous band EVER is the Flaming Lips. Business Insider admits the song 'She Don't Use Jelly' is the Norman-based indie rockers only U.S. hit. But they say the band has had many hits in the U.K. and Europe and, even more impressive, three Grammys to their credit. Some on the list are hard to argue with, like Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band in New Jersey or Nirvana in Washington State. You can see the entire list of the most famous bands here.
  • You thought your dog was ugly. The World's Ugliest Dog Contest is celebrating man's best friend's perfect imperfections in California on Friday. The pooches - many of which are adoptable or previously adopted - will face off in a red carpet walk and 'Faux Paw Fashion Show,' organizers said. The contestants are judged on first impressions, unusual attributes, personality and audience reaction. A blind Chihuahua-Chinese Crested mix named Sweepee Rambo bested 16 other homely hounds in last year's competition and waddled away with $1,500, a trophy and a flight to New York with her owner, Jason Wurtz, for media appearances. The then-17-year-old champion proved that third time's the charm after falling short in the competition twice before. By celebrating inner beauty, organizers said they hope to showcase that all dogs, regardless of physical appearance, can be lovable additions to any family. Contest rules prevent owners from intentionally altering their animals to enhance appearance for the purpose of the contest. These pooches are celebrated for their natural ugliness, organizers said.
  • With strong bipartisan support from both houses of Congress, President Donald Trump on Friday signed into law a plan to make it easier for the Veterans Affairs Department to get rid of employees for poor performance or misconduct, all in an effort to improve veterans health care and other services. “We’re taking care of our veterans and we’re taking care of them properly,” said the President, as he signed the bill at a White House ceremony. “Those entrusted with the sacred duty of serving our veterans will be held accountable for the care they provide,” Mr. Trump said. President Donald Trump on the VA accountability bill: 'This is one of the largest reforms to the VA in its history' https://t.co/NXXQ4plpBk — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) June 23, 2017 New legislation was needed from Congress mainly because previous efforts to make it easier to fire employees at the VA had become bogged down in the courts, even preventing the VA from getting rid of people like the former head of the Phoenix VA health care director, where a health care scandal broke out in 2014. “We won’t be able to accomplish any of the reforms we need to in the VA if we don’t get the right people in place,” said VA Secretary David Shulkin, who with the support of the President, has pressed ahead with internal changes. Shulkin said this new law would “make it easier and quicker to hold our employees accountable.” .@SecShulkin of @DeptVetAffairs joins @POTUS 4 signing Veterans Affairs Accountability & Whistleblower Protection Act pic.twitter.com/Yf3MsFZLbr — Sean Spicer (@PressSec) June 23, 2017 Among the changes in the bill: + A streamlined VA process to fire, suspend or demote workers for misconduct or poor performance + The Secretary would have the power to reduce the pension of a VA worker if that person is convicted of a felony crime that influenced their job performance + The VA would be allowed to claw back bonuses given to employees who are later found to have engaged in misconduct The new law also includes provisions to protect whistleblowers from retaliation inside the VA, and gives greater authority to the VA Secretary to fill top positions more quickly inside the VA health care system. “As you all know – all too well – for many years, the government failed to keep its promises to our veterans,” Mr. Trump said, saying “we are just getting started” on major changes to the VA, one of his central campaign promises in 2016.
