Practical Gifts for Dad

Eco-Friendly Gifts for DadI don’t know about the men in your life, but mine are terribly hard to buy for. Their needs and wants are simple, and for the most part they already own the things that could end up on a list.

These ideas are fun, a little traditional, and a whole lot useful!

I hope you enjoy these last-minute gift ideas for the men in your life.

Belly Armor Blanket

Seen right, the Belly Armor Blanket was originally designed to protect pregnant and nursing women from non-ionizing radiation, Belly Armor has found that 10% of their blanket sales are from men looking to protect themselves.

Belly Armor is a patented Radiashield technology that blocks 99.9% of everyday radiation caused by cell phones, laptops, iPads, etc. Belly Armor’s protective blankets provide a safety barrier between the body and the device. This is especially helpful for the Dad who works from home or simply enjoys catching up on news and sports from his laptop.

Misfit ShineMisfit Shine

The Misfit SHINE comes in several colors and the world’s most elegant fitness tracker. Pair it with their Pebbled Leather Band, and you have a perfect Father’s Day gift! (In addition to online, SHINE may be found at your local Target!)

The SHINE is a unique fitness tracker that is incredibly small (about the size of a quarter), stylish, and water resistant. Wear it while jogging, walking, working the elliptical, and more. It can even be worn while showering or swimming—giving it a real edge over the competition.


ChocoloveWho doesn’t love chocolate? I love picking out specialty dark chocolates for my husband. They’re a fun treat that we can share in the evenings, and it’s fun to try out new flavors. We are currently loving Chocolove’s Almond & Sea Salt variety.

Some other great varieties to try are Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups (SO good!) and Theo Chocolates.

Yuzen Box

I am not generally about subscription boxes because I’m not really into “stuff,” but the Yuzen Box is a little different. It is stuff, yes, but it’s stuff with purpose, and it’s pampering for him (or her!).

Yuzen Boxes contain items like sweet treats (healthier versions!), soaps, shampoos, lotions, candles, nail polish (for her), etc. Yuzen items are always non-toxic and all pampering. They are a nice way of making the man in your life feel special. Choose a one-time box or surprise him with a subscription (4 boxes, one per quarter).


Sprout Watch

WatchSpout has been around for a while, but I love their watches, and while it’s not a dress watch, it’s a great choice for a casual watch. They’re affordable, earth friendly and they look great too! Sprout watches are available online and at high end department stores.

Made from corn resin, Sprout watches are completely biodegradable and water resistant.

Dinner <3

Nothing says love like an act of love, and putting your heart into a meal is just that. Try one of these delicious recipes for your man’s special day.
