The Best Father's Day Gifts For Active Dads

Earning the title of MVK (most valuable kid, natch) won't be hard this year, thanks to our handy gift guide.

Let's face it: it's not hard to please your dad when it comes to Father's Day. Usually a card, a cup of coffee and the chance to see your face for the day will do it, but that's all the more reason why this is the best opportunity to surprise him and make his day with a gift that's even more than he would ever ask for–or expect. And there's no denying that he deserves it! 

Whether your dad loves to go for long runs or bike rides on weekend mornings, tends to hit the gym on his way home from work, or just rocks his dad sneakers on the reg, there's a game-changing gift that he'll definitely get use out of, right this way. Here are some of our favorites.
