Our Favorite Last-Minute Gifts for Dad

Motivation
Drink

It’s that time in June again (no, not Gemini season)—Father’s Day! If you got that text from your mom reminding you it’s only a few days away, don’t panic, we’ve got you covered. Whether he’s all about Savasana, loves some socks stylish, or is into the latest health/fitness trends, we have all the best goodies for your favorite fella. 

Kombucha

FOR THE HEALTH CONSCIOUS DAD 

More and more people swear by kombucha, but it can become an expensive habit! So why not make your own? Mortier Pilon Kombucha Brewing Jar is the perfect, easy-to-use kit that will give your dad a kickstart on his health—and handy work. 

Lululemon

FOR THE STYLISH DAD 

From looking cool post-workout to needing a go-to jacket for any outing, Lululemon’s Airing Easy Jacket is the summer staple for any dapper dude’s wardrobe. 

Avocado Starter Kit

FOR THE UNCOMMON DAD 

Made for dads who want something a little extra special and out of the ordinary, Uncommon Goods has *tons* of great Father's Day gifts to explore this year.

MINDBODY App

FOR THE FIT DAD 

You can’t go wrong here! A massage or gift card to your dad’s favorite fitness studio on MINDBODY is the perfect way to show your pops a little self-care.

23andMe

FOR THE CURIOUS DAD 

If your father is curious by nature, give him the gift of learning more about his history! 23andMe will finally prove once and for all that he’s not related to Tom Brady, even though his throw is “basically the same.” 


Swell bottle

FOR THE DAD WHO LOVES TO STAY HYDRATED

Does your dad always forget to drink water during the day? Keep him hydrated this summer with a Swell bottle. Step it up a notch with this Wood Collection made of natural fibers that are found in the world’s most picturesque forests. 


Patagonia

FOR THE CHILL DAD

Cult-favorite lifestyle and environmentally-friendly brand, Patagonia has Father’s Day written all over it. A simple Patagonia t-shirt will do the trick for any last-minute gift. Lifehack: Don’t know his size? A gift card always fits. 

Stance Socks

FOR THE TRENDY DAD

Because we all know how hard it is to find those matching socks out of the dryer. Step up your dad’s fashion game with Stance Socks. Plus, now he’ll make a point to keep the pair together (hint, hint). 

If none of these work for your budget, you know dad always loves a thoughtful card. All that matters is that you tell him, “hey, thanks for being the best guy ever” and spend the day celebrating him!

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
