Dads sometimes need a little coaxing in the wellness department. (Hey, they don’t get those dad bods for nothin!) In general, moms seem to embrace a whole-person approach to health and wellness more readily. But let’s not give dads the short shrift. They have endless potential – and we’re here to embrace that and help guide them toward a healthier lifestyle in every way we can.
That’s why we scoured the interwebs to find the best lifestyle and fitness products to give a dad you love this Father’s Day – even if he thinks he doesn’t need it.
10 Best Healthy Gifts for Dad
1. Go 3 Smartphone Sanitizer & Portable Charger
It’s no wonder that all the anti-virus protocols call for washing your hands day and night. That’s because all the germs on our hands (and our phones!) can enter our bodies through our nose, mouth and eyes. This gift will help Dad to keep his phone germ-free and keep those colds and viruses at bay. Phone Soap’s smartphone sanitizer is battery-powered and portable for a squeaky clean phone 24/7.
2. Prana Verde Yoga Mat Large
This eco-friendly, grippy yoga mat will help dad work on his “Cool Quotient” or CQ. We love the extra large one for dad, but it comes in a smaller size as well.
3. Nordic Ware Nonstick Backsplash Griddle
The next time dad decides to make breakfast for the fam, help make it healthier with this backsplash griddle. The cast aluminum, PFOA-free nonstick surface makes for cleaner cooking and less carcinogens from burnt, stuck-to-the-griddle food. A sloped angle lets grease and liquids run off (and pool in a well away from food). It can even be placed on the grill for the next round of smash burgers (a conscious indulgence we recommend from time to time)!
4. Veritable Classic Smart Indoor Garden Grower
Dad doesn’t even have to have a green thumb to grow veggies indoors because the Veritable Garden takes care of everything! Available in 7 sizes and configurations, the patented system uses ready-to-use seed pods to grow up to 68 different veggies and herbs with no pesticides or GMOs. Make dad the gardener he never knew he wanted to be.
5. Jungle Culture Eco-Friendly Bamboo Safety Razor

Jungle Culture, founded in Vietnam in 2018, aims to reduce the use of everyday single-use plastic items. They are also committed to creating a sustainable and ethical supply chain, working with small craft manufacturers around Asia.
Each double-edged bamboo safety razor comes with a jute carrying bag and is precision engineered and weighted for a seamless zero-waste shaving experience, according to the company. They even offer a user guide for safety razor beginners!
Give dad the clean, close shave he deserves while also honoring Mother Earth.
6. Jungle Culture Shaving Soap Bars

Complete dad’s shave gift set with Jungle Culture’s eco-friendly shaving soap as an alternative to shave gels and foams. Zero waste and handmade in Vietnam, the soap’s ingredients are cruelty-free, palm oil-free, chemical-free and vegan.
The soap is also made with less water content so that they last for up to 2 years. Now, that’s impressive! Inspire dad with this earth-friendly choice that will last and last.
7. ClassPass Gift Card
ClassPass is a monthly membership to one million boutique fitness gyms, studios, salons and spas around the world.
Get your dad a gift card for any amount and Class Pass will send it to him by email. And, no, he doesn’t need to be a member to redeem it.
8. Go Play Golf Gift Card

Does dad love to play golf but never seems to book a tee time? Take part of the legwork out of the equation by gifting him the Go Play Golf gift card that can be redeemed at over 5,000 golf courses nationwide. Better yet, gift him the card and the tee time for the perfect golf lover’s Father’s Day treat.
9. Partake Non-Alcoholic Beer

Has dad joined the sober-curious movement? Whether he drinks booze or not, Partake’s low-calorie, all natural and plant-powered beers are award-winning, non-alcoholic craft brews that prove you don’t need ABV for great-tasting flavor. From limited-edition cherry gose to lime, hazy IPAs to radlers, there’s something for every dad to love. And he’ll adore Saturday mornings even more without that hangover.
