Father's Day Gifts | UPMC Health Plan

If your dad is anything like mine, then you know how hard it can be to pick out a gift for him on Father’s Day. If there is something he really wants, he’s just as likely to go buy it himself. So this Father’s Day forget about the necktie and try one of these healthy  Father’s Day gifts Dad is sure to love.

  1. Grilling cookbook
    A perfect idea for any dad who likes to get outside and cook.
  2. Golf equipment or gift card
    If your dad’s a golfer, he’ll surely appreciate a new driver, a pair of shoes, a nice polo shirt — or better yet, a gift card to the pro shop to get what he wants or to spend it on a round of golf. After all, any day on the golf course is a good day.
  3. Healthy snack basket
    You can find many options, such as almonds and sunflower seeds, to create a nice snack pack for Dad.
  4. Physical activity tracker
    Physical activity trackers are the hot item these days and a great way to encourage someone to sit less and move more.
  5. Hammock
    There are many different options out there, including ones where you don’t need two trees that are close to each other.  This is a perfect way for Dad to relax and take a nap on the weekends.
  6. Sun safety pack
    Whether Dad is working outside or relaxing in the sun, he knows it’s always smart to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays. This can include protective clothing, a hat, and sunscreen.
  7. Workout equipment
    Easy-to-use equipment such as a kettlebell or a bench and dumbbells can go a long way toward becoming or staying physically fit.
  8. Water bottle
    A great way to drink more water is by having a nice water bottle. High-end ones now come with a filter included, making it easier to stay hydrated all day long while also enjoying a tasty drink.
  9. Fun experience/lessons
    There are many great deals out there for adventure. Has your dad ever wanted to try a new activity? Skydiving? A race car experience? Now is the perfect time to sign him up for an adventure of a lifetime.
  10. Free day at the park
    This one works for any budget, and all dads will appreciate being able to spend time with the family.  Pack a picnic lunch and go for a hike, or plan a fun family activity outdoors.
