I’m a Keto Dad. 

More specifically, I’m a reasonably fit dad who’s been eating a primal / paleo diet for seven years, dropping into and out of ketosis when I wanted to.  Recently, I’ve been eating a strict keto diet as my 52nd birthday is rushing towards me.  Keto has changed my life for the better, and I hope it’s doing the same for your Keto Dad.

Because I know it’s hard to choose gifts for someone on a keto diet, and because our Keto Mother’s Day Gifts article was so popular, I was inspired to create this Keto Father’s Day Gifts guide. 

Speaking from personal experience, the best keto Father’s Day gifts for your Keto Dad are those that help him get into ketosis fast and keep him making ketones not just on Father’s Day, but every day.   

If your dad is just starting the keto diet, or has been following the keto diet for a long time, consider a Ketogenic Father’s Day gift of tools to supercharge his diet and reach all of his wellness goals.

So no more messing around.  Let’s get to the lists of great keto father’s day gifts!  I’ve broken gift ideas down into three different catagories.

DIY Keto Father’s Day Gift Ideas.

These are my two favorite Keto Recipes to make summer BBQs more keto awesome.

#1 Keto Steak Sauce Recipe

Low Carb Steak Sauce Recipe
See The Keto Steak Sauce Recipe

I bet that your dad loves Beef.  And Pig.  And Lamb.  And Chicken.  I love them all and still enjoy them all the time…but I do sometimes miss my pre-keto sauces.  After years of trial and this is my go-to Keto Steak Sauce….though I also use it on meatloaf, chicken, pork, and sometimes on veggies.

It’s Low Carb, High Fat, and even has Omega-3s.  It’s rich and savory with just a touch of bite thanks to the horseradish.  This is a very easy no-cook recipe.

You can learn to make this easy keto steak sauce recipe here. It’s going to be a great keto Father’s Day Gift.

Pro-Tip:  I don’t always add the Horseradish and Hot Sauce which is optional in the recipe.

#2 Keto Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Keto BBQ Sauce Recipe
See The Keto BBQ Sauce Recipe

Summer Barbecues need BBQ Sauce, and Keto Dad’s need Keto Barbecue Sauce.

This recipe is Low Carb and relies up near zero carb natural sweetener Monk Fruit Extract for the sweetness that good traditional BBQ relies upon. 

You’re going to love this easy no-cook recipe.  There’s not even chopping in this recipe.  With a little supervision, even the kiddos can make this Keto Father’s Day Gift.

Pro-Tip:  If your Keto Dad likes smokey flavor, a drop of Liquid smoke in this recipe is a game changer.

3 – Keto Potato Salad Recipe

Father’s Day grilling needs a side dish or two, and potato salad is a staple.

Unfortunately, potatoes are really not keto diet-friendly. 

Here is the recipe for our low-carb version of potato salad, without the potatoes.  It’s not the same thing, but it’s pretty darn good.  Try it out and let us know how it turned out.


Keto Toolbox Father’s Day Gift Ideas.

These are tools that make a Keto Diet easier for your Dad. Every Keto Dad appreciates you gifts that show that you are trying to help him maintain and improve his keto lifestyle and better health.

Most items include an affiliate link for your convenience.  When you purchase through one of these links, we do make a little money to support our work here, but it does not affect your cost.  Thank you for your support.

#1 KETO-MOJO Blood Ketone and Glucose Testing Meter Kit

Most of us Keto Dads test our ketone levels regularly using the pee strips, and this Blood Ketone Testing Kit lets us get way more accurate in measuring those ketones. This isn’t an inexpensive piece of keto equipment, and it does have consumable strips. 

This is a great Keto Father’s Day Gift because it’s something that most Keto Dads would love to have but won’t buy for themselves. { See On Amazon >>> }

Pro Tip: Consider getting extra strips, too.

#2 Fitbit Charge 4

Not all Keto Dads exercise, but most of us do and a good fitness tracker is helpful and fun.  This is a great Keto Dad Gift Idea for both work out warriors and dads who are just trying to walk a little more. Counting steps on your dad’s wrist will inspire him to take more steps and get even more healthy.

I’m a Fitbit Guy.  They are affordable, comfortable, and not too expensive.  This is the one I wear.  Fitbit makes larger and more expensive ones, but I’m not a fan of big watches, so I like the smaller profile of this tracker. { See On Amazon >>> }

Pro Tip: Also get him a nice ‘dress’ watch band that can easily be swapped out for date night. Just make sure it fits the Charge 4.

#3 Fitbit Aria 2 Wi-Fi Smart Scale

Yeah yeah, we are all on the keto diet for all the health benefits and not necessarily weight loss, but we all still like to know how we’re doing.  I love this scale.  It measures weight and body fat percentage, and it also syncs with my Fitbit app. { See On Amazon >>> }

#4 Excalibur 3926TB 9-Tray Electric Food Dehydrator

I’m a big fan of my Excalibur Dehydrator. I use it to make my own Keto Beef Jerky and even Pepperoni Chips.

This isn’t a gift for everyone, but if your Keto Dad is a bit of a foodie and DIY kinda guy, this is a dream machine. 

We had a cheaper dehydrator before, and an Excalibur Dehydrator is night and day different. { See On Amazon >>>}

Pro Tip:  They make smaller versions if you are limited on space.

#5 Chef’s Choice 15 Trizor XV EdgeSelect Professional Electric Knife Sharpener

I cook a lot and because of that, I love a sharp knife. 

While it’s manly to sharpen a knife on a wet-stone, it’s so much easier to sharpen a knife to razor sharpness with this essential kitchen tool.

This is one of my essential keto kitchen tools.

Chef’s Choice makes both cheaper and more expensive versions than the one I linked on Amazon, but this one is my choice.  The 15-degree angle gives me very sharp knives and the three steps take even the dullest knife to razor sharp. { See On Amazon >>> }


Fun Father’s Day Gift Ideas

These are just fun Father’s Day gifts ideas that are still respectful of your dad’s keto lifestyle.

Most items include an affiliate link for your convenience.  When you you purchase through one of these links, we do make a little money to support our work here, but it does not affect your cost.  Thank you for the support.

#1 Ketone Test Strip T-Shirt

When Keto Dad is rocking this shirt, every keto disciple he crosses paths with will greet him with a nod-and-a-smile…maybe even with a high-five.  Dad will laugh and wear it proudly…that’s a good Father’s Day Gift. { See On Amazon >>> }

#2 DT Systems Super Pro Launcher

Not all Keto Dads are dog guys, but if yours is, this is awesome. 

This is a dummy launcher for retriever dogs and it will throw a retriever dummy way farther than you Keto Dad can and he won’t hurt his shoulder.

I got this for Father’s Day in 2016, and we still use it to keep my giant Chocolate Lab well exercised and pleasantly tired. 

As the old saying goes, a tired dog is a good dog. { See On Amazon >>> )

#5 Berkey Filters Premium Stainless Steel Bundle

In full disclosure, I got our Big Berkey Filter for Angela for Mother’s Day probably 13 years ago.

She’s very particular about the quality of water we give our kids, and this filter was her solution. A decade later, I’m hooked on the water that comes out of our Berkey. If water quality is important to you and your family, this is a win. As a bonus, if the power goes out, you’ll still have a way to clean water.

Pro Tip: 90% of the water I drink comes from our Berkey and I add drops of Trace Minerals to every glass to keep my minerals balanced.


The End!

Well, those are my Keto Father’s Day Gift Ideas. It’s all stuff that I have and love. I hope you find the gift idea for your Keto Dad that will make his day.
