5 Dad’s Day Gifts for Fathers Over Fifty

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.  Sunday is Father’s Day and the stores have been advertising great gift ideas for dads, everything from ties to tires.  However, if you are like me and the father of your children is over fifty, you know there are some gifts that you can give him that are better than anything bought in a store.

Here a just 5 suggestions of Dad’s Day Gifts for Fathers over 50

  • Eating Right:  as a man gets older, good nutrition plays an even more important role in how well he ages.  Hubby and I were in the grocery store and one of the ingredients that we focused on was sodium.  The daily recommended amount of sodium should not come from just one meal.  Have you checked the sodium content in a can of soup, you’d be surprised just how much there is. I enjoy cooking so when shopping we purchase more fresh fruits and veggies, fish, turkey and less red meat.  Hubby still likes his sweets but has cut down considerably since his surgery, so this weekend I’ll make him a little treat like this No-Bake Cheesecake. Enjoy!

  • Staying Active: staying physically active is important for everyone, and even more so for men as they age.  Whether it’s taking a walk together after a meal, going to the gym, swimming at the Y, lifting weights or playing golf, men need to keep their bodies physically active.  Having a healthy sex life is also important for men over the age of 50, not only because it’s a great form of exercise but it could reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer.   Remember ladies, the marital bed is undefiled (Hebrews 13:4), so give him a good workout!

  • Looking Good – men enjoy looking into the mirror and seeing a healthy smile, a well groomed face and hair as much as we like seeing them.  So give him a compliment when you see him using body washes, lotions, and other grooming products.  This not only makes him feel good but it also gives him a boost of confidence that is a gift that keeps on giving!

  • Healthy Sleep – turn off that TV, iPod, Tablet, iPhone and the lights for a good night’s rest, which is rejuvenating and slows the aging process. If you have a lumpy mattress or ill fitting sheets, perhaps you may need new set of linen or a new mattress especially if it’s older than half his age! need a new mattress

  • Prevention – an annual checkup is definitely vital for a healthy and happy life, so when your man makes an appointment he should ask to have the following tests completed during that visit: 

  • Blood pressure

  • Cholesterol level

  • Blood sugar level

  • Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) making a doctor's appt

  • Testosterone level
