The Ultimate Gift Guide For Your Health-Conscious Father Figure

Father’s Day, hey? Nothing but a Hallmark Holiday invented by the illuminati to sell socks and jocks, right? Well, you clicked on this article, so clearly you hold some flicker of admirations for the father figure in your life, whether it be your dad or daddy.

One bi-product of this whole ‘pandemic’ situation, is that health is well and truly still top of mind for most, and so adding a few health-centric items to your shopping list will be very well received by the ole man.

We’ve rounded up a list of fitness, health and wellbeing gifts for all budgets, all levels of fitness, and for the men in your life who aren’t afraid of a little mental sweat. There are gifts on here for even the most seasoned fitness-fanatic, so with the short while until Father’s Day rolls around again, do your shopping directly from this page. Kick back, let the deliveries roll in, and worry about wrapping the morning of September 4th. Or don’t (Dad’s don’t really mind).


THERAGUN MINI

I’ve always enjoyed using a Theragun when the opportunity arose, but have never owned one myself. The reason? They. Are. Expensive. Finally Theragun have released another model with a more realistic price tag that still does the job!

For those that haven’t felt the ‘pleasure’ of a Theragun, give this smaller version of the self massager to your significant other… a selfless way of gifting yourself one. You won’t regret it, although your muscles might.

SONOS MOVE

Music during a workout is a non-negotiable, and headphones have their limitations, especially when going hard or working out with others. The Sonos Move eliminates most of the issues associated with gym, home gym, or even living room workouts; it’s voice activated so you don’t need to interrupt your workout by looking at your phone to change the track, it has an 11 hour battery life, and it was heat tested inside industrial ovens, so the Aussie summer heat will be no match. Portable, weather resistant, and fully wifi and bluetooth enabled… it’s the perfect addition to the home gym set up.

MATT TINNEY PRINT

Healthy dads spring from healthy minds, and there are shortcuts you can take to boosting your dad’s serotonin. According to a study in the Journal of Coastal Zone Management, those who live in houses with ocean views felt calmer than their inland counterparts. This is largely due an influx in the colour blue, a psychologically calming colour, also linked with boost in creativity according to another study published in the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s journal. However we’re not suggesting hooking dad up with a beach house. Instead, bring the coast to him with a professionally shot print. Choose from three mini prints, each placed in a Country Road frame (white, natural or black) with a mat board, gift wrapped and shipped FREE. Boom, relaxation on demand.
