By: Dominique Michelle Astorino

The summer season is upon us, and with the warmer weather comes outdoor adventure, workouts in the sun, barbecues, and of course, celebrating the fathers in your life. We’ve curated a collection of 15 gifts for the dads in your life — particularly the ones who are focused on health and wellness! Whether it’s your own dad, the father of your children, or simply a father figure you love and appreciate, these pieces will support great habits to contribute to a healthier, happier life. 

15 Wellness-Inspired Father’s Day Gifts 

Hurley Phantom+ Tailgate Renegade Board Shorts ($100)

Whether he’s doing a beach workout, going to hot yoga, going for a surf, or simply sweating it out at home, these sleek and technical trunks are made from stretchy, sustainably-made, quick-drying material that’ll keep him dry and comfortable. We love a multipurpose gift!

Hyperice Hypervolt Pro ($349)

Recovery is a must, and if your dad is anything like ours, he tends to skip right past it (and keeps on powering through workouts!). This gadgety gun will impress him and help him slow down to break up stiff muscles for once. 

Alo Yoga Repetition Shorts($68)

Cool colors, sleek styling, pockets, and moisture-wicking material (no soggy workout clothes, here!): the Alo Yoga workout shorts have it all. We’re certain he’ll appreciate the elastic 

waistband. From poolside to Pilates and beyond, these serve style and sport performance. 

FitOn PRO Annual Membership ($30)

From personalized meal plans and recipes to a library full of trainer-led workouts, soothing meditations, and expert advice, a FitOn PRO membership is the ultimate wellness-inspired Fathers Day gift. Whether it’s 5-10 minute workouts for the dads with busy schedules or longer heart-pumping HIIT classes, there’s something for whatever he needs.  

Avocado Organic Meditation Cushion ($79)

Help your dad center his mind with a comfortable meditation practice. This eco-friendly cushion from Avocado is super comfortable and is supportive for sensitive knees and spines. Get him acquainted by doing a meditation session together!

Comfort Zone Body Strategist Arnica Cream ($35)

For sore muscles, have dad tap into the power of mother nature. This Italian skincare brand harnesses arnica for anti-inflammatory magic, with a soothing gel-cream formula. Perfect for post-workout, post-yard work, or any time he needs a little relief.

Oura Ring ($399)

Monitor sleep quality and quantity, daily activity, temperature, and so much more with this tiny tracker. This ring (which low key looks like a men’s wedding band) is sleek and comfortable and allows the wearer to tune into sleep habits to improve overall health. It even helps you discover your perfect, personalized bedtime based on individual metrics!

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protector SPF 50+ ($49)

For outdoor workouts, adventures, and more, help him protect his skin from harmful rays. This ocean-friendly face-and-body sunblock is super powerful, and it melts into skin. 

Hoka One One Clifton 8 Running Shoes ($140)

Get your dad some ‘dad sneakers,’ but make them cool… and performance-oriented! Hoka Cliftons are a best-seller for a reason; they’re supportive yet lightweight and offer the perfect balance of structure and springiness. You’ll probably want a pair for yourself, too… 

Lululemon Fast and Free Hat ($38)

Speaking of dad shoes, put the dad back in ‘dad hat’ (again, in a cool way!) with a sweat-wicking, lightweight, tech-fabric running hat from Lululemon. It fits snugly without being oppressive, is lighter than air, and protects from sun damage while keeping vision clear during a run or workout in the sun.

Fit Men Cook Cookbook by Kevin Curry ($15)

Your dad probably follows @fitmencook on Instagram, and if he doesn’t… this book will change that. Kevin Curry is an expert at making delicious, unique, health-focused recipes that are easy to execute at home. These meals are approachable, SO tasty, and the macros are listed out so he can calculate health goals whenever he needs.

FitOn Hydrate Me Water Bottle ($28)

Does dad need to drink more water? Give him a gentle nudge with a FitOn water bottle. This one is vacuum insulated to keep drinks hotter or colder for longer and can be tossed into a travel bag so dad can hydrate on the go. 

Ippodo Matcha ($30)

Introduce pops to the crème de la crème of Japanese matcha with this perfect tin of green tea. It’s rich in flavor but mellow with just a touch of natural sweetness. A MUST try, truly. Perhaps this will be a new morning ritual for him or something you can make together! 

Vuori Strato Tech Tee ($44)

California style meets athletic performance in this supersoft Vuori tee, made with UPF+ 30 fabric for extra protection in the sun. Plus, it pulls double duty as a perfect everyday staple, making it an ideal gym-to-street piece. 

Parfums de Marly Percival Shower Gel ($65)

After a sweaty (perhaps stinky!) workout, help your dad feel fresh and fragrant with this luxurious cologne-infused shower gel from Parfums de Marly. It’s got notes of citrus, wood, and pepper for a truly cleaned up (and classy) scent. Body odor, be banished!
