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 Watch

An 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 Bottle

While 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. water bottles

Drink Holder

If 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 Card

Audiobooks have surged in popularity in recent years, and they pair great with the gifts mentioned previously on this list. What better way to get through a daily roll than to listen to some of your favorite audiobooks?

Audiobooks are a great alternative to listening to music – it enables your Dad to listen to his favorite books while working out, traveling, or doing just about anything. If he has a morning or afternoon commute, an audiobook can make it that much more riveting.

Audible offers a variety of gift options for membership plans, including: books with headphones

  • 1 month for $15
  • 3 months for $45
  • 6 months for $90
  • One year for $150

For the voracious listening Dad in your life, the one-year subscription is the best value. It saves you $30 off the standard monthly rate. Each month your Dad will get a new book, with the option to purchase more if he chooses.

Think about that: 12 books for $150, which averages out to about $12.50 a book. That beats the rates at any bookstore. This option is highly recommended for any readers who want a new and innovative way to experience reading.

Apparel and Accessories from Zappos Adaptive

If your Dad gets around on wheels, consider getting him some disability-friendly shoes, apparel, or other accessories from Zappos Adaptive. They have options such as:

  • Slip-on shoes
  • Sensory friendly clothing
  • Orthotic shoes
  • Adaptive jeans
  • Post-surgical wear

Board Games

Great for a rainy day or just to keep Dad’s mind sharp, board games can be fun for you, your Dad, and the whole family. They come in a variety of styles and formats, so no matter how your Dad likes to compete, there’s something for him. Card games, strategy games, role-playing games and more are just a few of the options you’ll have when looking for the perfect game for Father’s Day.
