Father’s Day is getting more meaningful as more and more men are realizing how important their role as DAD is to their children. While Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national holiday to celebrate fathers in 1924, he didn’t take it much further than endorsing the idea. President Nixon made it an official national holiday in 1972. (Talk about a “who knew” moment!)

Sleepletics®, the online retailer gaining converts every day for its Celliant® Performance Sheets, a product that the FDA determined to be a general wellness product – reminds us that sleep is as important to Dad as much as it is to us. Giving Dad the gift of a better night’s sleep will have him skeptical at first but within a week, he will be feeling much better!
The sheets combine premium long-staple cotton and Celliant mineral-infused yarns that recycle the body’s natural heat back as therapeutic infrared light. This increases blood flow to the muscles and improves local circulation for better sleep and faster recovery from physical activity. Receiving these sheets – available in chalk, blue, tan and light grey – Dad will know the family cares for his well-being and loves him very much.
Price: $150- Queen Size. Giving someone a better night’s sleep every. single. night. is a gift that is without a price tag!
For Dads who want to look good, giving dad some casual additions to his wardrobe will update his look throughout the spring/summer!
Think about leather sandals, a welcome change from sneakers and as appropriate with tailored slacks as shorts and jeans. Or maybe board shorts for the guy who loves to hit the beach, the pool, the lake or tool around on his boat. No matter what, there’s Dad’s closet always could use a smart update in the casual wear to go from errands to dinner parties.
A lightweight shirt that needs no tucking is important during hot and/or humid days. Available in wrinkle-free cottons, with this in Dad’s closet he’s ready to go anywhere looking style-savvy, pairing it with jeans, dress pants, shorts or even a sarong for days at the beach. UNTUCKit offers many styles.
For Dads who enjoy prepping meals for the family, you can’t go wrong with such thoughtful items as biodegradable food wrappers, air (not oil) fryers, sushi roll makers or such unique gifts as the three-in-one avocado pitter-splitter-slicer. Tools these days keep healthy eating and our changing food choices in mind, a good thing for all of us.
For Dads who prefer the eating end of food– rather than the prepping work, you might want to score all four flavors of TOP CHOPS
Jerky– undeniably the most tender jerky I have EVER seen or reviewed. Available in Red Chili Pepper, Sweet & Spicy (the hottest of the 4), Original and Teriyaki, this makes a great snack, on the run protein boost or something to tuck into a golf bag or in a carryon for a weekend getwaway.
This is a thin-sliced jerky that is very easy to chew and you find yourself reaching for it without realizing that you just about ate the entire bag. It’s very tasty, good for you and healthy. It’s a great choice for those following a Paleo or Keto diet!
Prices are available in a 5-pack monthly subscription, ($25). A single 5 pack order – $29, and an 8-pack is $40.
For the Coffee- Consuming Dad!
If your dad loves cold brew, the perfect gift would be a great either a box of favorite cold brew flavors in bottles or k-cups!
I found this great way to get k-cups of cold brew coffee to be brewed hot or can be poured right over ice. Java House (sold on Amazon.com) has several different flavors of cold brew coffee pods that have the hot & cold versatility. I bought it for my husband and I found that I couldn’t resist the smooth acid-free texture and flavor of the coffees (note my plural there! I bought at least 1 of every flavor). It’s really tasty and I love the variety.
If you don’t want k-cup pods, but are craving the experience of a bottled cold brew, you can buy those on Amazon — also from Java House as well as High Brew! I highly recommend High Brew because they are made from Arabica beans and taste perfect on the go as well as poured over ice at home. The cans come in lots of different flavors too.
Happy Father’s Day to your dad, husband, brothers, and other family members!
