(NaturalNews) While dress ties and baseball game tickets are always a nice gift, take this opportunity to show how much you love and care for Dad by giving him something that improves his health. Here are a couple ideas that are sure not to disappoint him on Father's Day and will boost his overall wellness profile.

"All-natural" Father's Day gift idea

The American Massage Therapy Association reports that only one in 10 men go to massage therapists for treatments. Of these, just 29 percent received one for relaxation/stress reduction. Chances are Dad is battling some stress right now - who isn't! One proven way to boost his mental health is by buying him a therapeutic message gift certificate. The benefits are incredible and it'll be an experience that he'll remember for years.

If cost is an inhibition - massages range from $50 to $90 an hour - join Groupon.com, Livingsocial.com, and/or Halfdepot.com to get some good deals. Every major city in the U.S. participates in these online gift certificate deals where local businesses offer premiere services at a portion of the costs. Many offer daily specials and you should be able to pick up a massage for Dad for under $35!

Healthy Father's Day gift basket

If you're unable to see your father this Father's Day and want to send him a gift basket, stay away from the generic meat/cheese set-up and consider buying him something from Edible Arrangements. They create magnificent, fresh fruit arrangements and if he hasn't seen one of these gift baskets before he'll be in for a pleasant surprise!

How to make your own fruit basket

If you are able to see your father try making your own Edible Arrangements creation. Go to their website (http://www.ediblearrangements.com) to get some ideas. It can be a fun project you and your family can do together!

Supplies needed:

• A small wicker or metal basket
• A thick sponge that will fit the entire basket
• Several food-grade skewers
• Cookie cutters: Hearts, stars, circles, flowers are nice shape
• Fruit Dad will love: Any type of melon, pineapple, strawberries, and grapes work well.
• A creative imagination!

Unique gift for Father's Day

After studying 99 percent of every nation on earth, Positive Psychology expert Ed Diener discovered that strong, healthy social relationships are the one common denominator of all the happiest places on Earth. Not only benefiting someone's emotional health profile, Diener's research suggests that people can even expect to live 28 years longer in the happiest nations.

What's one of the most effective ways of building strong relationships? By spending time with your loved-ones and letting them know how much they mean to you. Appreciation and gratitude speak volumes and give your loved one a sincere sense of purpose in life - one of the other common denominators of the happiest places on Earth.

When's the last time you wrote Dad a letter? What better time to shower him with praise and accolades for all that he has done for you over the years than by taking a few minutes and writing him for Father's Day! Hand-written notes are oftentimes kept as precious keepsakes and they can create a sense of intimacy with the one who wrote it. Of course, letters do not replace human contact, however, many people cherish them so much that they are a very close second.
