Man Cave Gifts for Father’s Day

Man Cave Gifts for Father’s Day

No matter how long you’ve known that special father figure in your life, it can still be tough to find that perfect gift. Chances are that the obvious tie, socks, and t-shirt have been given numerous times, but this year can be different.

Many fathers seem to have that one place they go to for some quiet, peace, and alone time — sort of like their own man cave. Whether it’s the basement, the office, or the yard, these gifts will show him that he deserves that space, and most of all, that he deserves to enjoy it.

For dads who love a game of pool or a good sports competition, this set of antique pool balls will add a decorative but masculine flair to any area. Choosing a gift that reflects his personality shows just how much you truly care and pay attention to his interests.

Engraved Desk Paperweight

If dad’s getaway is his office space, then an engraved desk paperweight will bring a smile to his face. Not only is this gift useful, it’s personal. While the globe symbolizes he means the world to you, the engraving is what makes the entire gift. Every time the paperweight is put to use, he’ll read the message and think of you. For the days he wishes he were home, he can take it with him to his work office.

Whether his space is indoors or outdoors, this personalized wall bottle opener can be mounted on almost any hard surface. Personalize it with his initials or a favorite logo to make it his own. Next time he goes to open his favorite drink, he’ll be accompanied by this memory.

Dart Board

A dad who enjoys taking part in activities and hanging out with friends will appreciate a dart board. Plus, what’s a man cave without some kind of entertainment? For a dad who is just looking to have fun, a simple dart board will do, but for those interested in the latest and most innovative pieces, there are high-tech options with electronic features.

Heated Massage Pad

After a long day at work, a heated massage pad can be the stress reliever he needs. Compatible with any chair, sofa, or bed, this gift will give dad the relaxation he deserves. The built-in speakers are an added bonus that allow him to listen to his favorite music or book from his mobile devices while winding down.

Popcorn Maker

Going with the theme of items he can enjoy for years to come, a popcorn maker is just that. Whether he’s getting things done in the home office or enjoying his alone time in another area of the house, he’ll eventually need a snack. Not only is it a creative choice, it’s simple to use and there’s limited mess. Just add the kernels. An item like this can even make for a great bundle gift by making it into a movie-themed gift. Include his favorite movie or tickets to the nearest cinema and an assortment of candies. Keep in mind that he may just end up sharing it with the rest of the family!

Every individual in your life is unique, so when it’s time to celebrate one of them, give them a gift that truly fits them. While showing appreciation for those devoted father figures in your life should occur often, Father’s Day only comes around once a year. Take this opportunity to create a memory that he won’t forget. There’s nothing better than a gift that’s useful, personal, and enjoyable all at the same time. Happy Father’s Day to all!

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

2. Stress Relief

Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

3. Improved Sleep

Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

4. Appetite Control

Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

7. Mosquito Repellant

Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

8. Pain Relief

While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

9. The New Anti-Viral

Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

10. Improved Cognitive Function

Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

11. Money Saving

With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
