Turn about is fair play, and if you give your husband yet another tie for Father’s Day I can’t prevent him from giving you another slow cooker recipe book when your birthday comes around. If you default to the bland gifts of Father’s Days past you will be negating all the hard work we did to explain to the men of the world why they cannot give an iron as a Mother’s Day gift. This year, tell him he’s the best father you’ve ever known with a gift he’ll actually use.

You’ve probably bought many gifts for the man in your life—anniversary gifts, Valentine’s Day gifts, birthday gifts. But there’s something really special about choosing that first Father’s Day gift. It’s a great opportunity to say, “I love you,” “thank you,” and “our baby is so lucky to have you for a dad,” all rolled into one.
Maybe he’s your grandfather, your brother or a newly retired teacher who transformed your life when you were growing up. Whatever role that lucky man plays in your life, Father’s Day offers the perfect opportunity to show just how much you care. And what better way than a bountiful basket of gifts that enhance his health?
If your go-to gift for Father’s Day is a tie, socks, a shirt or other some other article of apparel, on behalf of dads everywhere, please try something new! If your dad loves spicy foods, a signature, homemade hot sauce is the perfect gift.
The trick for the perfect hot sauce is using a combination of peppers with a balance of sweetness, fruit and heat. Certain types of peppers, like the Caribbean Red Pepper and Scotch Bonnets, add the heat to the hot sauce that will make your dad’s mouth water, his ears pop and his body temperature rise. Combining different types of peppers with vegetables will add sweet, fruity and flavorful notes to your hot sauce.
Place into an inexpensive, decorative bottle and you’ve got the perfect gift for the zesty men in your life.

It amazes me how much my 5-year-old son looks up to me, imitating my behavior even as he develops his own identity. Watching him watch me has made me realize how important it is for fathers to model healthy habits. Exercise isn’t just something we do for ourselves; it impacts the health of our future generations. Dads, let’s all man up, get off the couch, and show our kids what it means to be healthy!
