For the Grill
Try giving the Grill Master some gear to make his grilling healthier. Try a cookbook, a grill basket to for grilling fish, or even a pack of cedar planks to add extra flavor to everything. Or go big and get him a brand new charcoal grill.
For His Heart
No matter his fitness level, Dad will appreciate a cool gadget to track his progress. A pedometer can help him do that by recording the distance he walks or runs, calculating calories burned, and monitoring his heart rate. Many can be synced with a computer so he can download and track his progress.
For His Mind
Recent studies show that adults with hobbies that regularly exercise their brains are 2.5 times less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease, so get Dad something to keep his mind in shape, like puzzles, models, or even certain video games.
