Father's Day—aka the day you're obligated to put up with all of the corny jokes, quirks, and dad noises. (We're talking the yawns, the throat clearing, and the snores, y'all.) But why should they have to put up with some boring knick-knack? We've graduated from the typical range of dude goods to bring you this list of unique, mindful gifts for Father's Day.
I'm always harping on my dad about the importance of sunscreen—especially since he's always on some sort of home/yard improvement mission. It's understandable, slathering on a lotion can be a pain. But, BBE's face and body sunscreens blend easily and work right away.
2. Bombas Socks
Ok, I know I said we're staying away from your stereotypical dad-gifts, but these socks are anything but ordinary. The reason being, with every pair of socks you buy, Bombas donates a pair to the homeless. Dad can rock his new, quality socks while you give back.
3. Hims Wellness Products
From supplements, telehealth services, hair loss solutions, mental health resources, and more, Hims is making self care and wellness more approachable for men. While some of the options on their website require your dad's input, you can buy things for him à-la-carte such as shampoo or collagen protein powder.
4. Facial Toner
Beauty by Earth's toner doubles as a natural aftershave (Read on why a lot of mainstream aftershaves are bad here) and face-balancing product. Men, by nature, tend to have oilier faces, making toner an important step in keeping their complexion level. It's a gift that brings dad a stellar shave and some signature skin.
5. AllBirds Sneakers
Time to update those kicks, pops. These "dashers" from AllBirds are durable, breathable, and supportive, which is probable the trifecta of shoe qualities that my dad emphasizes the most. Even better, they're made from natural materials. AllBirds is bringing sustainable footwear to the market.
6. Natural Deodorant
Padre's pits need some attention too! Don't let him opt for a stick loaded with aluminum. Instead, get him stocked up with a natural deodorant that will keep the B.O. at bay without any harm to the pores.
Mindful gifts for Father's Day show that you care for the needs in your dad's life—needs they might not be upfront about. But, self care and quality essentials are make for wonderfully thoughtful presents.
Stay cool, dads.
