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.
If your hubby uses work out supplements on the regular, like Mr. Bombshell does, consider setting up a monthly delivery of his favorite pre-workout supplement or protein powder with Set & Save at Vitacost.com. Present him with his first delivery of his favorite powder and a shaker cup with a note inside letting him know when the next shipment is coming. This is a fun and thoughtful way to give him a gift he will truly appreciate and that says you were thinking of him.
Some guys are gadget guys. Instead of shelling out a couple hundred bucks on the newest (and relatively unchanged) version of a cool phone or tablet, feed the tech-freak in him with an Omron GO Smart Digital Premium Pedometer. The high-tech sensor measures calories and fat burned, aerobic steps and time. He can geek out over the various buttons and settings while achieving his health and fitness goals at the same time.
Maybe your man is the intellectual type, always reading and researching. Vitacost.com has a great selection of books from homeopathic remedies to vitamin and mineral reference books. And if you’re looking to spice things up or just keep the marital bliss alive, let your man know you’re still interested in expanding your love to new horizons with the tantalizingly educational book Great Sex Naturally by Dr. Laurie Steelsmith and Alex Steelsmith. Because there is always something more to learn, right?
Whatever your man’s point of interest, make sure you let him know how much you appreciate all he does for you this Father’s Day…and maybe let him commandeer the remote control for just one day.
