So with Father’s Day coming up in this weekend I thought I would bring you some gift inspiration. If your Dad is a fitness fanatic or just getting started there is something for every man and if he is into his healthy food I have you covered too.
First up is all things running. There is loads of local races coming up in the summer months check out Run Ireland for a full list of fixtures. So if your Dad is an avid runner or needs a push to get him going why not get him a race entry? If he is looking for some new clothes or runners but you are not sure of his size a gift voucher is a thoughtful gift.
If swimming is more of your Dad’s style gym membership with a pool is a great option. Many pools also offer adult swimming lessons to get him off to a great start. If Dad enjoys exercise on two wheels, why not check out your local bike shop for some accessories or even a voucher to get the bike serviced before the busy summer season!
If your Dad is more foodie there are some great cook books out to help him whip up that healthy family dinner. The Happy Pear duo based in Greystones are the poster boys for healthy Dad’s. Their recipes are vegan but can be modified to add meat. Kitchen utensils are a great gift idea that can be a healthy addition to Dad’s kitchen. Powerful blenders have a multitude of uses from desserts to healthy dips and nut milks! Another two utensils I would be lost without would be a steamer and a slow cooker. These can be picked up from Argos so no excuses!
On the day, why not head outdoors for some fun family activities. With many lakes, parks or mountains on our door step here in Ireland it’s the perfect opportunity to work up an appetite for a special brekkie! To really help Dad on his health journey why not check out my next post on a healthy Irish fry!
