It’s always exciting when a box of gifts arrives, and it’s extra great when the gifts are for someone as hard to shop for as my husband. BabbleBoxx sent me a diverse selection of Father’s Day gift ideas, so read on for some great gifts (plus a discount code for the first one!).
The Fruit & Fire Bouquet arrived separately from the rest of the Father’s Day gifts, since Edible Arrangements are made locally. It had been kept perfectly cold on a really hot day. Set into a keepsake container which looks like a tiny grill, the Fruit & Fire Bouquet is filled with pineapple “flames,” chocolate covered banana “coals,” chocolate covered strawberries with orange swizzles, and various other cut, ready to eat fruits. Not only is this a great gift for a special dad, it’s also a wonderful item to bring to a Father’s Day celebration or cookout – it’s something that everyone can enjoy.
This gorgeous selection of fruit did not last long enough for my husband to have any of it, however, because his family members are horrible people. My daughter happened to home from school just as I was finishing taking pictures, so we dug in. Then my son got home from school and finished it off. My husband never had a chance, so I might have to buy him his own with this discount code: visit Edible Arrangements and get $10 off of a $50 order with code BLOG6725 (good through 6/18/2017).
Arctic Cool Hydrofreeze Shirt
The Men’s Instant Cooling Crew Neck Shirt with Mesh from Arctic Cool might look like an ordinary shirt, but the fabric contains a really cool feature called Hydrofreeze X Cooling Technology. This fabric wicks away sweat from your skin, and then goes one step further by drawing that moisture throughout the fabric instead of letting it pool in the places where you sweat the most. Plus, the moisture circulating through the fabric has an instant cooling effect, keeping you cool and dry while you exercise! This particular shirt that I was sent also has mesh sides for extra breathability. Arctic Cool claims that this shirt can cool down by 30 degrees!
Once again, however, my husband lost out on a gift meant for him (but don’t worry, I made up for it). I asked my son to model the shirt for this post. We kept the tag and stickers on, because he was just going to wear it for a minute and then we were going to put it back in the box for my husband. But when I was done taking pictures, my son whined that it was the most comfortable shirt he’d ever worn, and he didn’t want to take it off! Being the softy that I am, I cut the tag off and let him keep it. Then, I immediately ordered two of these super-comfortable shirts for my husband!
Universal Music Group Vinyl
Giving music to someone is a really personal gift that shows you know them, and no matter what their taste, Universal Music has a great album for every dad. With vinyl, you’re not just giving music, you’re giving a keepsake. We were sent Songs In The Key Of Life by Stevie Wonder, and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John – two truly great albums, with gorgeous cover art to match.
AliveCor Kardia Mobile
The Kardia Mobile from AliveCor is an FDA cleared device that allows you to take a medical-grade EKG in 30 seconds by placing your fingers on the pads, and the accompanying free app lets you send that information to your doctor for analysis. The Kardia Mobile is small and light, and is capable of detecting possible atrial fibrillation, which is a leading cause of stroke.
The premium version of the app can also help improve your heart health by tracking five things that can affect your overall health (and are also risk factors for stroke): heart rhythm, blood pressure, weight, physical activity, and resting heart rate. Plus, you can purchase the Kardia Mobile using pre-tax dollars from your Health Savings Account and other similar programs.
So why would you want to give this to a father on Father’s Day? Because you love him and want him to be around for many more Father’s Days. This is potentially a life-saving gift.
Sexy Hair: Hard Up Gel
Sadly, it’s been decades since my husband has had enough hair to style it or use product. So, even though the Sexy Hair Hard Up Gel is a men’s hair gel, I think I’m going to keep it for myself! It won’t flake, and it holds on all hair types. If you put it on wet hair you can basically make your hair do what you want – spike it, sculpt it, or slick it back. If you put on dry hair you can achieve a sexy, tousled look. Perfect for beachy weather!
And that’s it, five very different gift ideas for the dad in your life. Have a great Father’s Day!
