Father's Day Health and Fitness Gifts
A good Father's Day gift can encourage good health -- and still be fun too.

It doesn't have to be an exciting night out. Something simple
might work equally well. Just do something that your dad likes doing.
"Even if gardening isn't your favorite thing in the world,
offer to go plant annuals in the garden, or do some weeding with him," says
Schimmelfing. "Or offer to do the edging with the mower that the lawn
service doesn't do well enough to your father's liking."
"He might really enjoy something as easy as a weekly or
monthly walk around the lake or the park, or a hike in the mountains," says
Schimmelfing stresses that while it is simple, the gift of some
time may be much more meaningful than the usual Father's Day gift.
"Gifts that really matter are gifts of yourself rather than
stuff," says Schimmelfing. "After a few years, we don't remember who
gave us a particular sweater or when or why. But if you and your dad go do
something special together on Father's Day -- a road trip, or just some time
together -- you'll both remember it for a long time."
