Father's Day is just around the corner and if you're still searching for the perfect gift, you've come to the right place! We've curated a list of top gifts for Dad's who roll (and also for those who don't). Here's our list of six great gifts for Dad this Father's Day.
Apple WatchAn Apple Watch is a great gift for Dads looking to track their fitness levels. But did you know that they have special features built in to accommodate wheelchair users? The Watch's activity app can record its' users rolls, exercise, and movement goals. It has specially designed sensors built in to consider various surfaces or inclines. Plus, with Siri's voice recognition (and more coming soon) technology, users can begin playlists or workouts without even clicking a button.

Water BottleWhile on the go, it can be easy to get thirsty or even dehydrated - and that concern can be heightened for people with paralysis. That's why a water bottle is a fantastic gift idea for Dads too busy to stop for a drink. YETI offers a variety of insulated water bottles that will keep drinks cool (or warm if the weather's frosty). You could also opt for a hands-free water bottle that's slightly more convenient.
Drink HolderIf your Dad is in a wheelchair, you may want to give him a place to stash his awesome new water bottle. Why not grab him a bottle water holder that can attach directly to his chair? This drink holder from Sheer Living can do just that.
Audible Streaming Service Gift CardAudiobooks have surged in popularity in recent years, and they pair great with the gifts mentioned previously on this list.
