Are you shopping for The Best Dad Ever? A Dad that’s also Active? Getting the perfect gift for the perfect Dad is a tough gig, but we’ve got you covered! These 11 fun gifts will show the Active Man in your life how much you appreciate him, and, they’ll keep him moving this Father’s Day!.
1. Suspension Scooter $239.99
This just might just be THE perfect scooter for Active Dad! The Suspension is a new scooter by Micro and already one of the top-rated scooters on the market. It is designed to be fast enough and rugged enough for use by commuters, so it works great for keeping up with the kids, and he might want to use it to get to the subway or train faster too. Its patented suspension system absorbs the bumps, making it perfect for long rides on urban sidewalks. The front and back suspension work together to isolate the rider from shocks and vibrations; Dad will float over the bumps. The metallic bronze finish means Dad will arrive at work in style. Robust construction makes the Micro Suspension suitable for heavier riders, (up to 220lbs) but still light enough to be easily carried into the office, folded and stored under his desk for the commute home.
2. Micro Luggage $399.99 $299.99 through June 19th
Is Dad a globetrotter? The Micro Luggage scooter is the carry-on luggage every frequent flyer should have. A roll aboard with built-in kickboard that lets you ride to your gate, Micro Luggage will get Dad there in about half the time it takes walking. Fold it up and the Micro luggage becomes a conventional roll aboard. While waiting at the gate to board, access your laptop and paper work via the specially designed front pocket. Dad can cruise the terminal in style! (Also available, Steve Aoki Luggage, $399.99)
3. Birchbox Man Starts at $10/month
Birchbox is all the rage - even for dads! Starting at only $10 per month, Dad can try samples of the latest and greatest in mens grooming and personal hygiene supplies, then save big when they find their favorites.
4. Double Travel Hammock $60.00
Designed for one or a cozy couple, this lightweight and easy-to-pack hammock is perfect for wherever Dad's travels might take him. Made of top-quality parachute silk, it's ultra light, strong, breathable, fast-drying, and machine washable. It includes two weatherproof polyester ropes and Smart Hooks for easy hanging, and rolls into its small pouch that fits easily into suitcases and backpacks. This robust hammock can hold up to 395 lbs.
5. Pedalflow $199.99 $179.99 through June 19th
The Pedalflow is an innovative, compact, folding bike, without a seat! Designed for short commutes, the Pedalflow is great for the "last mile" to the office, riding with the kids, or just cruising around town. One of the most important benefits of no seat or crossbar is that getting on and off is quick and easy. It also lowers the weight. At only 16 lbs, the Pedaflow is one of the lightest-weight folding bikes on the market - a perfect addition to Dad's collection of rides.
6. TomTom Multi Sport $149.99
Got a runner on your hands? Dad would love this Tom Tom Multi Sport Watch. It features a GPS system, the ability to set an interval training program, compete against past times, and the ability to sync with the TomTom My Sports app. (Available in pink, turqoise, and black).
7. Essential EDC Kit $49.98
Every Day Carry – or EDC, as Huckberry calls it – is a term thrown around loosely in our world. There are countless testaments around the web to our cherished pockets' contents. Frankly, some of them leave us feeling a) scared (Is that a carbon fiber shank?) or 2) confused (You carry around 10' of paracord with you at all times?) So they created the best keyring money can buy. All you have to do is carry on.

- (1) Peanut Lighter
8. Flex Black $199.99
Designed for adults, the Flex Black is named for its color and flexible, patented deck - a marine-ply and fiberglass composite that absorbs bumps easily, even on urban sidewalks. The large, 200 mm wheels, make it one of Micro's fastest, smoothest rides. The high-quality hand grips are luxuriously comfortable, even after a long ride. This scooter is folding and stylish - perfect for Dad to ride with the kids to school or cruising to work. (Also available in Aubergine).
9. BioLite Basecamp $299.95
For the outdoorsman in your life - the BaseCamp converts heat into usable electricity for large-format cooking and charging. Using only fallen branches or small pieces of firewood, make wood-fired meals and charge devices all at the same time. It's a smart alternative to fossil-fueled stoves, creating an elevated cooking fire that burns smarter than any fire you're used to.
10. Man Crates Starting at $19.99 +
Man Crates has something for everybody - seriously. From the outdoorsman, to the sports guru - they will hook you up! Order Dad a fun Pizza Grilling Crate, or the Bass Whisperer Crate for the fisherman in your life. Starting at only $19.99, they offer gift boxes that are useful, fun, and unique!
11. Sock101 - Sock of the Month Club: Starts at $11/month
