This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 16, which leaves you with a little over two weeks left to shop. Don’t let the day sneak up on you without having purchased a great Father’s Day gift that clearly says, “thank you.” From water bottles to cufflinks, there’s something here for every dad on your list, including new dads, step-dads or anyone that took on that role.

Here are five great Father’s Day gift ideas.
The History of Father’s Day
The first Father’s Day celebration occurred in the state of Washington on June 19, 1910, after Sonora Smart Dodd, “one of six children raised by a widower,” successfully attempted to establish an equivalent to Mother’s Day. Other celebrations happened sporadically in the years’ following. Father’s Day ultimately became a nationwide holiday – celebrated annually in the U.S. on the third Sunday of June – in 1972.

Gift Ideas to Show Him Your Appreciation
#1. A Fitness Tracker/HR Monitor
A fitness tracker from Apple, Android, Garmin, Fitbit, and others can help him meet his goals. Before you buy, however, you’ll want to consider the activities he most enjoys. For example, hikers will get more use out of a device with built-in GPS, while swimmers will need a device with a water resistance rating between 5 and 10 ATM. The latter is suitable for open-water activities, whereas, the former is ideal for swimming laps.
#2. A Reusable Water Bottle
Encourage him to drink half his weight in H2O (doctor recommended) each day and reduce plastic waste with a reusable water bottle from Hydro Flask. Available in a wide range of colors and sizes, these insulated, powder coated bottles are designed to keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot for hours. They even have coffee mugs and flasks – perfect if your dad is a caffeine lover.
#3. Sweat-proof Wireless Earbuds
Help your dad meet his fitness goals and reap the many health benefits with one of several key workout accessories: sweat-proof wireless earbuds. These earbuds are designed to stay put no matter how intense his workout gets. You can find a variety of sweat-proof earbuds or, if he’d prefer, headphones at your local electronics store or online. Popular brands include Jaybird, Bose, JBL, Beats, and more.
#4. Fashionable Cufflinks
Level-up your dad’s wardrobe with a pair of fashionable cufflinks. Cufflinks replace the buttons on men’s dress shirt cuffs with distinctly elegant and sophisticated, even personalized, jewelry. Cufflinks are available in a variety of types to tie any look, whether casual or formal, together. Cufflinks can also made from precious metal or gemstones and may be engraved with your dad’s initials.
#5. A Meal Planning Service
Assist your dad in eating a more balanced diet, so he can ultimately meet his fitness goals with a meal planning service, like Kettlebell Kitchen. Based out of California, this personal service company offers several different menus with weekly specials based on location, which can either be delivered to his home or a participating gym. Give him a gift card so he can try the service to ensure it’s a good fit.
