Gifts for Dad

Gifts for dad are some of the hardest to find! If your dad is like mine, when you ask what he wants for Father’s Day, his birthday, or Christmas, he just says, “I don’t need anything.” Which is probably true for most dads. They don’t NEED anything but we want to get them something to show them how much we love them. And we really love funny presents for dad that will make him laugh out loud.

I’m hoping this list will introduce you to a few new products that are fun and show Dad how much he means to you.

10 Healthy Gift Baskets for the Wellness Fanatic in Your Life

Need a gift for the health fanatic in your life? Choose a healthy gift basket filled with wholesome treats instead of a gift basket laden in calorie-packed baked goods and candy that will tempt her to quit on her healthy lifestyle goals. You can find lots of healthy gift baskets that will satisfy all her cravings while keeping up with her healthy lifestyle. Here’s how to find the perfect healthy gift basket.

How to Choose a Healthy Gift Basket

Healthy foods don’t have to taste bland or boring. You can find tons of healthy options that taste great and still help you meet your healthy lifestyle goals. When it comes to healthy food, you have a few options. You can choose heart-healthy nuts, fresh fruit, dried fruit, cheese, and so much more. There are tons of healthy options for gift baskets that you can choose.

One thing you might want to consider is if your loved one has any special food allergies or dietary restrictions. You may want to check to see if your loved one is following a gluten-free or vegan diet. Next, think about what your recipient really enjoys. Send a box of fruit to your friend who has a bit of a sweet tooth, or choose some beef jerky, cheese, and mixed nuts for your friend who follows a keto or low-carb lifestyle. But if you send a package of carb-heavy cookies to your loved one following a keto diet, they most likely won’t be used, so it’s important to know a little bit about what your loved one prefers.

If you’re shipping something perishable, make sure it ships quickly and is properly packaged. Or, choose shelf-stable items so you don’t have to worry about fluctuations in temperatures during the shipping process. Or, choose an arrangement from Edible Arrangements® that always arrives perfectly fresh.

Top 10 Healthy Gift Baskets

For the health fan in your life, there’s no better choice than a healthy gift basket. Here are ten great options to choose from:

This arrangement looks as great as it tastes. It comes bursting with color and citrus fruit, featuring fresh orange slices, strawberries, grapes, honeydew melon, and so much more.

A delightful gift for any holiday or special occasion, this crate is packed with three different types of smoked salmon to try atop crusty bread, bagels, or all by itself. It includes bourbon and pepper, pastrami, and a Scandinavian-style called gravalax.

Cost: $139.95

All the snacks in this keto box have 0 to 4 grams of net carbs. It includes 20 low-carb snacks, such as nut butter, pork rinds, macadamia nuts, cheese crisps, almonds, jerky, and so much more.

Fresh from the farmer’s market, this gift box is sure to delight. Inside you’ll find a variety of fresh fruit, crackers, summer sausage, cheddar cheese, crunchy peanuts, and more.

We Found 20+ Delicious Gifts for Foodies That You Can Order Online

Everyone has a foodie friend in their life, and we all know that person can be a bit particular when it comes to their palate. Whether you're gifting for a chocolate lover, an oenophile, or a passionate gourmand, there are foodie gifts out there that are perfectly tailored to their tastes. The best part? No aimless wandering around candy shops or boutique wine stores. These treats can be ordered online and delivered directly to their doorstep.

A monthly shipment of three or four spectacular cheesemonger-picked artisanal cheeses, delivered right to their doorstep? We ain&rsquot cheesin&rsquo!

The Cheesemonger's Picks Cheese of the Month Club from Murray's Cheese is one of the most delicious monthly food subscription boxes out there (and it makes a great gift, too) because it's curated to absolute cheesy perfection.

This pick gets my personal foodie stamp of approval. A good cheese board will make anyone swoon.

We think that the sweetest way to show that you care is through cupcakes. This gift box includes 25 bite-sized cupcakes in 12 different tasty flavors, including Cookie Dough and Baked by Melissa's Tie-Dye.

For us, the perfect weekend morning starts with gooey cinnamon rolls from Cinnabon. This box of six delicious rolls ships overnight from Harry & David for ultimate freshness. Treat yo' self!

Let's face it. working from home also means cooking from home, and the burnout is real! Give your foodie friend a break from the holiday cooking with a gift subscription to chef-cooked meal delivery service Freshly.

Meal plan pricing starts at $8.49/ meal, and your friend can pick meals from 30-plus offerings based on their specific dietary restrictions and preferences.

Plus, Freshly is offering a limited-time give-$60-get-$60 offer. Refer your friends, and earn $60 for each friend when they join.

Instead of buying a traditional tree this year, consider getting a holiday plant you can keep enjoying long after Christmas morning. This sustainable Holiday Gift Pack includes a 12-pack of Sunwink's delicious herbal tonics as well as a Horti surprise plant you can deck out for the holidays. Yay for sustainable surprises!

We firmly believe that delicate white truffles make everything better, but especially when they're infused in hot sauce. This TRUFF Hot Sauce is an insanely delicious blend of ripe chili peppers, white truffle, agave nectar, and just a touch of coriander for a hot sauce that is jam-packed with umami flavor.

Put this on pizza, pasta, or omelettes, and try your very best not to drink it straight from the bottle. This is the ultimate practical yet gourmet foodie gift any truffle lover will love.

Whether you're serving a special breakfast in bed or just looking for a fun upgrade to weekend waffles, this heart-shaped mini waffle maker will warm any foodie's heart right up.

This single-serve mini waffle iron is nonstick, compact, and super lightweight, so you can whip up waffled breakfast treats wherever you go. This is a gift for foodies that's straight from the heart.

MasterClass is an innovative online education platform that provides access to celebrity instructors in tons of categories from acting to painting to cooking. If the foodie that you're gifting loves to cook at home, we recommend world-renowned chef Gordon Ramsay's MasterClass.

They'll see a very different side of the chef as he walks viewers through the lesser-known tricks of the trade that he's gathered during his 30-plus years in the kitchen.

Oprah's a total tea fanatic (she starts every morning by pouring herself a cup), so it's no surprise that this turmeric tea set from VAHDAM made her Favorite Things List.

This gift for foodies features an assortment of six turmeric tea infusions that are all uniquely flavorful, relaxing, and refreshing.

Inspire the people in your life who love to cook by gifting them a spice subscription from Raw Spice Bar. With either a 6- or 12-month subscription gift card, your recipient will get hand-blended, freshly ground, and globally inspired spices along with recipes.

Unlike many other spice subscriptions, Raw Spice Bar's spices and blends contain no salt, which makes this an awesome gift for the health-conscious chef.

Take the coffee lover in your life on a sensory tour with this Local Roasters Gift Box from La Colombe. This three-pack includes small-batch blends from Philadelphia, Chicago, and Los Angeles &mdash each blend pays homage to the neighborhood where they were roasted.

Let's be real: There is really no better gift for foodies than an assortment of delicious cookies from the treat fairies over at Milk Bar.

This variety pack contains one of each of the bakery's bestsellers: A Compost Cookie, Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookie, Corn Cookie, Blueberry & Cream Cookie, Chocolate Confetti Cookie, and Confetti Cookie. Consider any cookie craving covered.

Made for serving alongside crusty bread, fresh fruit, and cheese, Brightland's newest, basil-infused olive oil is incredibly tasty. ARISE is blended with basil and hand-picked heirloom Frantoio olives and is smooth, herbaceous, and just slightly peppery.

With hints of mint and clove, this olive oil will intensify the flavor of any green salad or pasta dish this season.

Gifting a foodie friend who is just slightly popcorn-obsessed? We think a Pipsnacks gift card will satisfy their craving, stat. In case you don't already have minority-owned, sustainable snacking brand Pipcorn on your radar, it's time you add them to your snacking arsenal.

Insider tip: We highly recommend the truffle flavor of this heirloom mini popcorn.

If you're gifting a foodie friend who happens to be obsessed with oysters, treat them to this gourmet gift bundle from oyster subscription service Real Oyster Cult. This chic kit comes with 20 delectable oysters sustainably sourced from across North America along with a shucking knife and gloves to protect your paws from those sharp shells.

Sun Goddess Wines from actual goddess and music legend Mary J. Blige has been bringing some much-needed positive vibes (and Black-owned representation) to the predominantly white world of wine since its launch this past summer.

For your foodie friend who loves wine, keep the vino a-flowin' by gifting them this delicious tasting set of Sun Goddess pinot grigio ramato and sauvignon blanc.

We are already big fans of Kosterina's delicious Greek olive oil, but this EVOO-infused dark chocolate takes it to the next level. This Chocolate Mezze Box makes the ultimate foodie gift for chocolate lovers, and it comes with two bars each of Almond Butter & Vanilla Dark Chocolate, Fig & Balsamic Dark Chocolate, and Nuts, Honey & Cinnamon Dark Chocolate.

Salt is one of the most elemental parts of cooking, and yet, it's often overlooked. This set of gourmet salts from The Spice House includes Hawaiian Red Alaea Sea Salt, Hawaiian Black Lava Sea Salt, Fine Himalayan Pink Salt, and Portuguese Saltcream Sea Salt &mdash four colorful ways to play with flavor in one great gift package.

This Black-owned, Brooklyn-born brand is dedicated to making superfood-boosted essentials for health and beauty, and we love their superfood latte blends.

Golde's Superfood Latte Kit will boost your foodie friend's morning smoothie or coffee with power-packed ingredients, including matcha, turmeric, coconut, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and black pepper.

The artisans at NYC-based condiment company Truffleist do not mess around when it comes to truffles. This Truffle Condiment Gift Set includes their best-selling raw wildflower honey, German mustard, hand-harvested Sicilian salt, and Greek olive oil &mdash each infused with black summer truffles from northern Italy.

Whether your foodie friend is a bit of a health junkie or is simply trying to incorporate more nutritious, fresh-squeezed juice into their daily health regimen, NutriBullet's new juicer takes the guesswork out of juicing at home.

From a full English breakfast to a Mexican michelada and a South Korean beansprout soup (kongnamul gukbap), Shockey’s recipes explore beloved cultural cures for an indulgent night of imbibing.

Let’s face it: Cutting boards can get gross.
