Father’s Day is almost here and while socks and ties are old standbys, consider getting him something a little less traditional this year. Whether your dad is searching for the perfect steak, a surprisingly good gluten free beer or something to spice up his shower routine, we’ve found 10 gifts that let him know you’re thinking about him, all with a gluten-free spin.
1. For the dad with the good sense of humor
Ballsy (www.ballwash.com) is unlike anything on the market (you will see when you check out the website – they put a primary focus on men’s prized jewels!). For their Father’s Day Gifts, Ballsy is premiering their “Keep Your Tools Clean” box, which includes their Nut Rub, Ballwash and Sack Spray. It’s free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates or synthetic dyes, so it’s safe to use.
KC Cattle Company’s Big Daddy Beef Package provides a solution for the man who’s always on a quest for the perfect steak. KC Cattle is a veteran-owned company that sells hormone-free Wagyu beef raised on its own farms. The company employs and mentors veterans and donates proceeds from sales to many veterans’ foundations.
3. For the dad that loves coffee or red wine, but has stained teeth
Luster Pro Light Dental Whitening System features a patented Dual Power Xenon Whitening Light and Stain Lifting Serum to whiten teeth up to 6 shades in 30 minutes. It’s a clinically proven professional whitening system with no messy trays or strips. The system gently whitens without sulfates (SLS). Enamel-Safe.

4. For the dad who’s sweet, but a little wild
Endangered Species Chocolate makes all natural, organic, certified gluten-free chocolate with a mission – fueling conservation efforts across the world. The company’s distinctive packaging, which features an assortment of wild animals, isn’t just for show. Over the past three years, the company has donated $1.4 million to support endangered species and habitats. Feed his wild side this Father’s Day while also helping the planet.
Cratejoy‘s man-themed monthly subscription boxes take the guess work out of gift giving not just for Father’s Day, but for the whole year! If dad enjoys getting new stuff (and who doesn’t?), but hates to shop (don’t they all?), Cratejoy will deliver – literally. With boxes aimed at fishermen ($16.95 a month), grill masters ($27.95 a month) cigar aficionados ($27.95 a month) and even surfers ($99 a month) there’s no shortage of options.
6. For the cool dad who enjoys a cold one
Güten Beer– It wasn’t too long ago that gluten-free beer simply didn’t exist. Then it did, but many people said the taste was lacking. Flash forward to today and there’s many tasty gluten-free beers to choose from with Güten Beer leading the pack. Less than a year after launching, the company won the first-ever World Beer Cup. Consider this award-winning beer for the world’s greatest dad.
Find a 100 percent gluten-free restaurant or one with a robust gluten-free menu and take your special guy there. A really great treat for someone living the gluten-free lifestyle is being able to dine out without worry! If there are no 100 percent gluten-free restaurants nearby call ahead and speak with a manager or the chef to see about meal options. Doing the work is as much a gift as paying for the meal.
Or just whip up a gluten-free meal at home. Ask ahead of time for what should be on the menu and for any special preparation instructions. If you know him well, don’t spoil the surprise and cook up his favorite meal. Consider some inspired wine parings when putting a menu together. The effort will be appreciated more than you might realize!
Sabatier Edgekeeper Pro 21-Piece Forged Triple Rivet Knife Block Set– If your man fancies himself the next Bobby Flay, this is the gift to give. This 12-piece set ($59.99) includes an 8-inch chef knife, 8-inch slicer knife, 6-inch cleaver and more all made from high-carbon stainless steel. Each handle is perfectly weighted and balanced for optimal control. Useful, stylish and affordable, here’s a gift that’s guaranteed to get some use.
A homemade recovery kit can go a long way toward helping someone get over being exposed to gluten. Take some time and put together a care package with things such as: bottled water, aspirin, charcoal tablets, ginger, tea and other items to ease the symptoms of gluten exposure. Add some personal touches, perhaps a note to make him smile, to let him know you’re thinking of him this Father’s Day.
