7 Gifts For Fit Dads That’ll Arrive In Time For Father’s Day

He's gonna love 'em!


Wanita Nicol |

Fit dads are the best. Not just because they can carry heavy stuff or chase down the fastest two-legged creature on land (a fleeing toddler) but because they’re so easy to buy gifts for. These cool gadgets are just what he never knew he wanted, but will never again be able to live without.

PS: We’re loving the delivery options available to you, including next-day and same-day delivery. Bonus.

1/ Proper Sports Socks

Yes, we know socks are the clichéd crappy Father’s Day gift – but these game-changing pieces of performance footwear are not those crappy socks. Breathable, moisture-wicking fabric will keep his feet dry and reduce odour, while the seamless toe and ergonomic fit will help prevent chafing and blisters. Plus, with sizes ranging from 4-15, they have every foot covered.

3/ Massage Ball

Super portable, it does wonders for stiff, achy muscles. Where a foam roller comes short, a ball can really get into those knots and is perfect for rolling tense feet. We suspect it won’t be his for long!

4/ Suspension Trainer

This awesome home-gym tool is great for fit dads who don’t have a gym membership or can’t always make it to the gym. He can hook it up to anything sturdy and perform a wide rage of strength exercises using his body weight and the instability caused by the apparatus as resistance. Unlike equipment-free body-weight training, it also allows him to do pulling movements that will build muscle in his back.

5/ Gym Tights

Even though they’re getting more popular, some men still feel uncomfortable with the idea of working out in tights. And that’s a huge pity because they’re so much warmer in winter than shorts, but allow way more freedom of motion than tracksuit pants. Splash out on a pair of tights for him and you might just change his life. Although if he’s not quite ready for a life-changing experience, these tights from adidas are designed to work well under shorts.

He’s taken up golf? Every golf bag needs one, especially on crisp winter mornings when the fairway is covered in dew. It’s essential for wiping down wet clubs, tees, hands and yes, balls.

7/ Gym Sack

They get really stroppy with you in the gym if you try to take a bag onto the gym floor. Fair enough, since a giant tog bag would be annoying and a tripping hazard. But if you want to carry just a few little items (car keys, wallet, gym gloves, your own skipping rope and resistance band) a bag is kinda useful. He should be able to get away with a discreet drawstring sack like this one. It’s also useful for keeping wet clothes or shoes separate inside a bigger gym bag.
