Father’s Day is coming up fast, and trying to find the perfect gift can be tough even when you have all.the.time during quarantine. Even though it might look a little different, we still want to get a Father’s Day gift for our military guys that they will love. And for most of them, that means something they can use. Here are our editor’s favorite Father’s Day gifts for military guys this year.
Our Favorite Father’s Day Gifts for Military Guys
This ultimate resistance band training set means that your guy can workout wherever he is, even if the gym is closed, he’s out in the field, or stuck at work waiting for the CO to finish a meeting so he can closeout. But these are more than just a set of resistance bands. Hyfit Gear has smart-enabled sensors that send biometric feedback to the coordinated app on your phone via Bluetooth to suggest workouts uniquely tailored to you.
The sensors will also track your resistance level, the number of calories burned, and overall force while counting your reps and exercise duration. There are even suggested workouts within the app for him so he can focus on certain areas. No more heavy and expensive gym equipment to take up space in your base housing- with Hyfit he can work out with minimal space and minimal equipment.
There are two types of Father’s Day gifts: functional and super cool. These hand-painted military weaponry tools from Graith definitely fall into the super cool category. There are several different weapon tools to choose from including antique grenades, 20mm rocket cannon bullets, and baseball grenades. Each piece is hand-painted by using a splatter technique so each design is individual. This is a great gift for any military dad to add to his collection of cool military art for his “I love me” room.
We know our service members need to get a workout in anywhere and everywhere, and with the ABLE (Advanced Body Weight Leverage Equipment) platforms by Fitness Hardware they can take bodyweight exercises up several notches. These platforms have wheels on them so they provide an extra boost when doing pushups, core workouts, chest workouts, or even physical therapy and stretching sessions. They are a simple tool that adds so much to his daily workouts and can easily be taken with him when you PCS or for your home gym without adding a ton of extra equipment.

Every military spouse knows that their military guy needs to have his phone charged and ready to go at all times. These two lamps and charger combinations from LumiCharge are perfect for Father’s Day as they provide a fast charge and a bedside table space that is clutter-free, or help to create an office space or desk that is clutter-free.
The T2W is the sleek LED desk lamp has three light colors- bright white, soft white and soft, eye-friendly “incandescent” yellow- that can be adjusted to different brightness levels. But it comes with so much more. It also has a full calendar display, the time, the date, and teh temperature. To power up his phone, he just lays it on the cradle for a fast charge. There is also a Bluetooth speaker so he can play his favorite music while he works or rests.

If your guy is a K9 handler or he just loves his pets, then a Cuddle Clone is the perfect gift.

Grilling, camping, hiking, drinking, golfing- these are all things your military servicemember probably loves to do on their off time.
