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

  • As the Oklahoma Blood Institute moves into the final stretch of its 40th anniversary year, it’s trying to get word out about what it does, and the need for extra help during the holidays. In those four decades, OBI has grown to become the ninth-largest non-profit blood center in the nation. OBI Recruitment Manager Kenda Burnham told KRMG Tuesday they serve about 90 percent of the hospitals in the state, and for most of them, are the only source of blood. “That includes all childrens’, all veterans’, and all Indian hospitals in the state,” she said. “We also supply St. Francis Health Systems, which is the largest user of blood here in northeast Oklahoma.” That requires a lot of donations. “It takes close to 1,200 donors every single day to ensure we meet the needs of patients all across our systems,” Burnham said. And that need does not go down during the holidays, but unfortunately donations often do. “Holidays are a little more challenging, because people just get out of their regular routine,” Burnham told KRMG. “People are busy doing other things, so sometimes they forget to take time to give blood. So we still have patients in those hospitals, no matter what day of the year it is, that are counting on life-saving blood donors.” The process takes about an hour for a standard donation, and she said most people actually qualify, even if they’ve traveled out of the country or had a tattoo. But only about one in ten who can donate, actually do. Anyone who can help is urged to visit the OBI website and make an appointment, or find a nearby blood drive.
  • The Massachusetts tribe whose ancestors shared a Thanksgiving meal with the Pilgrims nearly 400 years ago is reclaiming its long-lost language, one schoolchild at a time. “Weesowee mahkusunash,” says teacher Siobhan Brown, using the Wampanoag phrase for “yellow shoes” as she reads to a preschool class from Sandra Boynton’s popular children’s book “Blue Hat, Green Hat.” The Mukayuhsak Weekuw — or “Children’s House ” — is an immersion school launched by the Cape Cod-based Mashpee Wampanoag tribe, whose ancestors hosted a harvest celebration with the Pilgrims in 1621 that helped form the basis for the country’s Thanksgiving tradition. The 19 children from Wampanoag households that Brown and other teachers instruct are being taught exclusively in Wopanaotooaok, a language that had not been spoken for at least a century until the tribe started an effort to reclaim it more than two decades ago. The language brought to the English lexicon words like pumpkin (spelled pohpukun in Wopanaotooaok), moccasin (mahkus), skunk (sukok), powwow (pawaw) and Massachusetts (masachoosut), but, like hundreds of other native tongues, fell victim to the erosion of indigenous culture through centuries of colonialism.
  • A photo circulating on social media appears to show a Memphis Police Department officer . >> Watch the news report here The photo was posted on Saturday, and several viewers sent it to WHBQ. >> See the photo here Memphis police acknowledged the photo and issued the following statement: >> Read more trending news 'The officer in question has been identified, and an administrative investigation is underway. This behavior will not be tolerated, and I can assure you that corrective actions will be taken,' said Director Michael Rallings. 'This type of behavior does not represent the hardworking men and women of the Memphis Police Department.
  • Former Tulsa police officer Shannon Kepler was sentenced this week to 15 years in prison after a manslaughter conviction in the shooting death of Jeremy Lake, but like every aspect of the case, determining how long he may actually serve in prison is complicated. For starters his attorney, Richard O’Carroll, has already said they will appeal the conviction. There’s also the looming case of Patrick Dwayne Murphy, whose 1999 murder conviction was overturned by the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals because it occurred in “Indian country,” and Lake’s death also occurred on what is - according to that ruling - part of a Creek Nation reservation which was never officially disestablished by the federal government. Since Kepler’s been on the roles of the Creek Nation since 1983, the pending appeal in the Murphy case could potentially land his case in federal court, obviating anything the state court did.
  • Some people just never get tired of trying to prove the Moon landing was a hoax. This time, it's a video that was uploaded to YouTube and has gotten around a million views. Newsweek reports the uploader, looking at an old photo from the Apollo 17 mission, claims to have spotted a person not wearing a spacesuit in the reflection of the helmet visor of an Astronaut walking on the moon. But some commenters say it looks just like another astronaut to them. And some point out that these days, just about anyone with simple software can convincingly alter a photo. You can look at the photo in question here.
