5 Unique Health-conscious Gifts For Active Dads

Ask Dad what he wants for a Father’s Day gift and you might get a super-helpful, “I don’t need anything” or the classic, “you’re the only present I need!” While dad might think he’s being helpful, you know that it’ll lead to aimlessly scrolling the internet for dad’s day gifts.

If you’re pressed for ideas, Within/Without is here to help! If your dad’s a food, fitness or health nut, we have the perfect health-conscious gifts he’ll love (as well as some gifts for active moms, too!)

Our Top 5 health-conscious Gifts for Dad

Within/Without’s Blueberry Granola modeled as a food gift for Dad

Within/Without Granola

Okay, so maybe we’re a little biased here, but there’s no better gift for an active dad than a delicious snack he can feel good about eating. The ingredients in our Keto and Paleo granola are nothing but clean and natural, so if dad is on a healthy eating kick, he can have a tasty snack without an ounce of guilt!

This food gift for Dad contains healthy fats from almonds and coconut oil and is naturally sweetened with honey (good for those dads with sweet tooths). Don’t just take our word for it: check out our testimonials to see why so many people love our granola for themselves and their dads!

A Reusable Water Bottle

Sometimes the perfect health-conscious gift is one that doesn’t even have to do with food -- maybe it’s all about hydration! You’ve probably seen a lot of sticker-covered reusable water bottles out there. While they’re certainly great for staying hydrated on-the-go, insulated metal water bottles are a whole new world of reusable-goodness.

Many metal water bottles are heavy-duty vacuum insulated to keep whatever food (yep, we said food!) or beverage you keep inside it at the right temperature for hours. Whether dad is taking an ice-cold beer to his best friend’s barbecue, or toting around some soup for lunch, a metal water bottle will keep the contents super hot or icy cold.

They come in a variety of colors and patterns too, so you can get one that fits your dad’s style, no problem!

Cold Brew Coffee Maker

Coffee lovers are a special brand of foodie. Once someone starts investigating which brewing method tastes the best, they’re hooked—and cold brew is a special favorite of coffee lovers everywhere. If Dad is a foodie and a coffee guru, an excellent food gift for Dad is a home cold brew coffee maker.

There are a lot of different cold brew coffee makers out there, and you’ll have to decide what’s best for your budget and what’s the right size for dad’s kitchen. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, Wired put together an excellent list of the best cold brewers.

Though it may not seem like it, this is a health-conscious gift, too. Starbucks’ vanilla sweet cream cold brew has got a lot more carbs and sugar than an active Dad might want, but they can be pretty tempting (and, we’ll admit, tasty). Helping Dad to make his own brew at home provides him a healthier choice for his daily caffeine fix and a way to experiment with his own brew.

Two steaks on a flaming grill as an example of food gifts for Dad


Got a meat-loving dad in your life? There are more ways than ever before to purchase grass-fed, high-quality steaks and meats online to grill at his next barbecue.

Whether you’re choosing to support a local farmer, or purchasing a combo kit from a mega-popular retailer like Omaha Steaks, this gift isn’t just any old meat you can find at the grocery store. For this gift, look for brands or farmers that offer specially-cuts and are packaged fresh for enthusiasts. The premium quality of these special meats makes them a health-conscious gift that’s perfect for a dad dedicated to a high-protein or Paleo lifestyle.

Watch out for this one though because they sell out fast: you’ll want to order well in advance to make sure they get to dad in time for Father’s Day!


Naturebox is an excellent health-conscious gift for Father’s Day: the company curates a collection of healthy snacks based on your preferences and ships them right to your door. They use no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners, no corn syrup, no hydrogenated oils and no MSG in their products (just like us!)

The other great thing about Naturebox is that it’s a subscription, so it’s a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. When you set up Naturebox for your dad, he gets to try new snacks every month (alongside his favorite Within/Without granola, of course!) and can adjust them according to what he likes. It’s the perfect food gift for dads who are mindfully watching what they eat.
