1. Vegetarian Grilling Cookbook – It’s unfair, but a fact: manliness is associated with being a carnivore. But tell that to 6′ 5″, 250-pound NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez, or the heavyweight slugger Prince Fielder of the Milwaukee Brewers.
One thing that is indisputably manly is grilling. So, with summer here, why not marry the two and offer your hubby The New Vegetarian Grill: 250 Flame-Kissed Recipes for Fresh, Inspired Meals. The latest edition has 50 brand new recipes, including Lentil-Stuffed Pita Pockets with Grilled Onions and Vegetarian Fajitas with Chipotle Sour Cream.
2. TRX Suspension Training System – There are options to keep the busy business traveler in your life fit. For one, the TRX Suspension Training System is like a gym that fits in your suitcase. It weighs less than two pounds, and can be set up in seconds on something as east as a hotel door jam. This is no gimmick – elite professional athletes like Drew Breez of the Super Bowl champs New Orleans Saints, and NBA star Carmelo Anthony are among the system’s high-profile users.
3. Pedometer – Are you always on your husband or dad to get up off the couch and start moving? Well, you can keep them to their word (if they agree) by giving them a pedometer. They can count their steps, and you can rest assured they are getting more exercise.
4. Spa Gift Certificate – So, you think that spa days are just for women? Think again. Massages have many benefits. They are great for the spirit, but they are particularly beneficial for a post-exercise massage, which improves recovery time.
