Are you searching for Father’s Day gift ideas for the athletic Dad? I’ve got you covered in this post sponsored by Academy Sports + Outdoors. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Father’s Day rolls around every year and I’m always completely stumped on what to buy for my husband. What do you buy a man that has everything that he needs? Instead of buying something boring like a tie he’ll probably never wear, we did things a little different this year.
In high school and throughout his childhood, my husband was always into sports. Basketball was his go-to but once we became parents he started getting into other sports as well. Running and bike riding are sports that he has been getting into lately.
For Christmas we gifted Tatiana with a new bike so that she could learn how to ride without the training wheels. She has been asking for Dad to ride with her ever since, but he didn’t have a bike. He had been riding the bike that he bought me for Christmas. That sparked an idea for her when I asked her what we should get him this year.
My husband loves sports and spending time with his favorite girl. Put those two together and we knew exactly what to shop for at Academy Sports.
Father’s Day Gift Ideas for The Athletic Dad
If there’s a man in your life that is an athlete or enjoys sports, Academy is where you’ll definitely want to go for your Father’s Day shopping. They have great deals and everything that Dad could ever want. Before we hit the store, T and I searched the site for things that we thought Dad would like. He loves to play basketball and ride bikes with us, so we had our eyes set on gifts in those categories.
We set a limit for how much we wanted to spend and went from there. With all the Father’s Day deals at Academy, it made it easy to get the best bang for our buck. Here’s a look at what we picked out for Father’s Day.
Nike Men’s Camo Swoosh Dry Legend T-shirt: The Nike Men’s Camo Swoosh Dry Legend T- shirt is perfect for any Dad who loves to get active outdoors or indoors. Not only does it give Dad a fashionable, sporty look but it has Dri-FIT technology that helps him to stay cool and dry while he’s sweating it out.
Nike Essential Endeavor Sunglasses: Keep the style going for Dad with these sunglasses. These were a top pick for us because we knew Dad would love them. They’re perfect for when he’s riding through the sunset with T. They’re lightweight which is definitely an added plus.
Ozone 500 Men’s Fragment 29 in 21-Speed Mountain Bike: Choosing a bike for Dad was by far the hardest part. He’s super tall, over 6 feet, and we wanted to make sure that we chose the right size for him. With the help of the Academy team and their bike chart, we found this perfect sized bike at an amazing price. It’s sturdy enough for riding up mountain trails or just throughout our local bike trails. The all black sleek design is right up his alley so we knew he would love it.
Nike Men’s Air Max Sequent 4 Running Shoes: These are literally the perfect all-purpose shoes for any Dad. Whether he’s going running, bike riding or just running errands, he can throw these on and go through his day with comfort.
