Father’s Day Gifts For The Active Dad

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s time to show appreciation to the incredible dads and father figures in your life. If you have an active or gym-going dad, you’re in luck! This year, instead of the usual ties or socks, why not surprise him with a gift that aligns with his passion for fitness? Whether your dad is a dedicated gym rat, an outdoor adventurer, or simply enjoys staying active, we’ve got you covered. Here are a variety of Father’s Day gift ideas that are sure to impress and support his active lifestyle. 



For The Lifter 

  • Barbell Collars: Every lifter needs a good pair of barbell clips to secure his weights. Check out our brand-new red VASA collars. 
  • Shaker Bottle: A shaker bottle is perfect for your dad to bring to the gym. Simply add protein powder, water, and shake! VASA offers an affordable option for just $8 that can be purchased in club or online. 
  • Foam Roller: Foam rolling is one of the best recovery tools to treat sore muscles and increase performance and flexibility. 




For The Swimmer 

  • Goggles: Goggles are the perfect gift for dads who prefer low-impact workouts in the pool 
  • A cinch bag: Our VASA cinch bag is perfect for dad to carry his suit, goggles, towel, or anything else he may need for the pool.  



For The Cyclist 

  • Handlebar Bag: A handlebar bag is the perfect gift for any cycling dad—think fanny pack that sits on the handlebars of a bike for easy access to anything he may need on a ride. It also prevents the dreaded sweaty back that backpacks can cause.  
  • A Lightweight Water Bottle: An easy-to-carry water bottle is essential for anyone going on long-distance rides. Here is a great option that keeps water chilled without a plastic after-taste. 
  • Roadside Repair Kit: A tire blowout is an inevitable yet annoying reality of going on long rides, especially on a road bike. It’s good to always be prepared with a roadside repair kit for when the unexpected pops up! 



For The Runner 

  • Running Shorts: A great pair of comfortable shorts, like our VASA active shorts, are great for outdoor runs or miles on the treadmill! 
  • Durable Running Shoes: There are many great running shoe options. Take your dad to a local running store where they can assess his stride and provide feedback on the perfect shoe based on foot shape and running type! 
  • Running Belt: A running belt is perfect way to carry small items like a phone, ID, and gels. Some even come with water bottle holders for long distance runs. There are many great options like this one from Lululemon.
