Get Your Dad Cool Stuff This Father's Day With Badger Balm, Wear Your Music, Saxx Apparel, DennyMike's and ChiWalking!

3:00 am

There are a lot of gift guides out there to help you get something great Father's Day this year.

What makes the knack one different is that I sought out products that perhaps you might not think are very "Dad." We are conditioned to think that all days like to fish, barbecue and fix cars, but I really don't think that's the case. I think fathers are as diverse as moms and not all mom's spend time baking, sewing or shopping.

So here is a list that's a little different, a little off the map and I think, way more fun.

Badger Balm Certified Organic Sore Joint Rub

If you Dad's like my Dad, he does more as he gets older, not less. Perhaps it's that he realizes that time is passing quickly and he doesn't want to waste a minute of it. Everyday he's out walking, shopping, gardening, raking - active all the time, all day long even if he's achy and sore.

That's why I'm giving him Badger Balm Certified Organic Sore Joint Rub.

Complete with Arnica Montana and Black Pepper Supercritical CO2 extracts, it eases everyday aches and pains while moisturizing the skin. You can even use it on bruises and sprains!

It gently warms the skin upon application and it has a pleasant, spicy scent thanks to the use of essential oils. What I really like about it is that it goes to work quickly, but contains no harmful ingredients - only USDA Certified Organic and naturally processed, chemical-free ingredients.

Now finally I can take care of my Dad like he's taken care of me all of these years.

Wear Your Music Guitar Bracelet

Does your Dad like to rock out? I know a lot of fathers that can't get enough of Rock Band and who spend entire weekends downloading music from their past.

So give your Dad the Wear Your Music Guitar String Bracelet. You don't have to worry about whether it will fit or not because it's one-size-fits-all. Made from real guitar strings donated from over 150 artists such as Eric Clapton and Jack Johnson, you are giving both a piece of rock 'n roll history as well as beautiful jewelry - it's a 2-in-1 gift!

The bracelets come in a number of different styles and colours (I got Rock America) and because they are unisex, you should be sure and get yourself a bunch as well - I did.

Not only do these bracelets make awesome gifts, a percentage of all profits are donated to charities that support music, so you are giving both to your Dad and to others this Father's Day.

Doesn't that feel good?!

Saxx Apparel Underwear

Personally, I could not give my Dad underwear. That's just waaaay too intimate for us, but I know a lot of my friends rely on giving socks, ties and underwear each year and their Dad's come to expect it. I think it's kind of sweet, actually.

But why get something ordinary from the department store, when you can get Saxx Apparel Underwear!

The Everyday line comes in a medium-weight cotton/spandex blend that is made for the ultimate in comfort. What is so unique about this underwear is that it is made with a "performance pouch" that "prevents testicle contact," which means that Dad can finally breathe easy - everywhere. As well, elastic is used on the bottom of the leg, which prevents it from riding or rolling up.

It may seem like small things, but boy, what a difference it will make - and something that Dad can truly appreciate.

Also be sure to check out the Bamboo and Performance lines or all the lines here.

DennyMike's Cue Stuff Inc.

Your Dad doesn't have to barbecue or be "King of the Grill" to enjoy DennyMikes.

In fact, Sunday roast chicken dinner just got a whole lot better thanks to Chick Magnet, an awesome rub that totally transforms chicken. We tried it here at home and agreed it was the best roast chicken we'd ever had! And Pixie Dust is a great all-around rub that you can use on practically anything. I'm doing a beef roast with it tonight...

I love the vinegar-based Carolina-Style Sauce, as it's not like anything else I've seen before. I'm telling you - vinegar and pork is one of the most pleasurable combinations in the world. And for all of the heat lovers out there, Hot 'n Nasty is a must-have item!

The Full BBQ Gift Set is a great way to indulge Dad this Sunday. It's got it all - the rubs and the sauces that take your dinner from "Huh," to "WOW!" with so little effort, it's unbelievable.

Shop all of the products here and make Dad's day with tasty treats that you can all enjoy!


My Dad is a real walker. Everyday he walks for about 3 hours.

This Father's Day, I'm giving him ChiWalking: The Five Mindful Steps for Lifelong Health and Energy. It covers the 5 steps to walking to great health - get aligned, engage your core, create balance, make a choice and move forward.

Though we all walk each and everyday, are we really mindful of it? Are we really getting the most from our walks? This book shows the mental, emotional and physical benefits of ChiWalking, based on the core principles of T'ai Chi. Hey, this is not only a great gift for Father's Day, but for those wanting to improve their health and general well-being.

And if you're father is a runner, be sure to get him a copy of ChiRunning: A Revolutionary Approach to Effortless, Injury-Free Running, which will not only show how much you care, butwill increase both his health and energy! In fact, I know so many runners, that this is going to be a regular present that I give throughout the year!

A book about improving your health is just about one of the nicest presents you can give, don't you think?
