Does the dad in your life have more neckties than he can wear in a lifetime and more coffee mugs than he knows what to do with? It’s easy to fall into a Father’s Day gift-giving rut and this year is one that we’re all sure to remember because it’s making us all think outside of the box! While we may still need to maintain a safe 6-foot social distance, there are ways to spend quality time together. So, put down the BBQ set and power tools, and take a look at this list instead!
Live Streams Bring Families Together, Even When Socially Distancing
Did you know there are over 47,000 salon, barbering, fitness, and wellness businesses to browse on the Vagaro.com Marketplace, with a Live Stream Search feature showcasing upcoming classes and events? If you and your favorite dad live locally, use Vagaro.com to find an open-air class to take together, and shake off the indoor blues. If you and your dad can’t spend the day together, check out the upcoming live stream search to find a class that’s perfect for him—or that you can join with him for some quality time together. Here are a few of our favorites, that you can book on Vagaro right now!
Dancing Lotus Yoga + Arts SolarFlow Vinyasa Yoga builds stamina and a strong core, which helps make transitioning into new exercises and poses a breeze. Suitable for beginners or advanced students, the class focuses on creative movement and breath control, with diverse exercises and modifications to welcome every kind of body to join in, explore your own creative energy, and focus on mindfulness.
Live2Row Studios Work up a sweat with Dad with a cardio session! This live stream class concentrates on building and increasing cardiovascular capacity, so it’s great for people focused on making gains in their aerobic capacity. Perfect for rowers, cross-training across different sports, or those looking to improve their heart health, this is a class to take with Dad and feel strong!
Alice’s Fitness and Dance Nothing says “Happy Father’s Day” like a kickboxing class! Suitable for beginners and experienced kickboxers alike, this live stream class provides a fun, inclusive atmosphere for learning the basic combinations of kicks and punches. This high-cardio workout helps improve endurance, balance, and core strength while giving you and Dad a healthy way to relieve stress—punch out those Covid-19 blues! This class recommends sneakers or bare feet, but you can always create a complete Father’s Day gift by giving Dad pads and gloves to go with his live stream registration.
Fitness & Grooming Gift Packages for Dad
While soap-on-a-rope and cologne are Father’s Day classics, isn’t it time that Dad got a modern upgrade? Here are a few ideas for Father’s Day gift baskets to assemble and sell in your Vagaro online store. We’ve also included some product bundle ideas that can be given as a complement live stream classes like the ones listed above, so you can really treat dad right this year!
Yoga Dad. Everything your favorite dad needs to get started— or upgrade! — his yoga equipment. For this bundle you can include: a yoga mat, comfortable yoga pants, yoga socks, yoga block, massage balls, and a strap. Combine this gift bundle with registration to a live stream yoga class and give Dad the gift of Om!
Cardio or Bike Dad. For active dads, create a Father’s Day bundle that helps them enjoy all their favorite sports! Think sweat bands, bike or cardio gear, cyclist mirrors, heart rate monitors, exercise bands, running belts, or a self-sanitizing water bottle. Combine your heart-rate happy gift bundle with registration to a live stream cardio class—or join Dad for an outdoor ride!
Dad Needs to Get Spiffy! For lots of dads, one of the toughest parts of sheltering in place has been not being able to get a haircut. If you’re in a state where you can book a haircut, hop over to the Vagaro Marketplace and let Dad’s favorite barber take care of him. Bundle up his fresh cut with a variety of self-care items, like scalp-stimulating shampoo, beard wash, a shaving brush, men’s face wash, and SPF moisturizer. Grooming bundles are great online sellers that make a great gift, with or without the accompanying cut.
Bright Idea: Add gift wrap options to Father’s Day gift bundles and give customers one more added convenience! Don’t forget to include both shipping and curbside pickup options, so you won’t be limited to local sales.
Navigating Father’s Day may be a little different this year, but the one thing that hasn’t changed is Dad’s place in your heart. Whether you’re still socially distancing or you’re able to be with your favorite dad for the day, take the time to reflect and share with them how they’ve shaped your life. From all of us at Vagaro to all the dads, stepdads, grandfathers, and father figures we hold most dear, Happy Father’s Day.
