Father's Day is one of those holidays that sneaks up on you—it's Sunday, June 20!—so gifts need to be shipped soon in order to arrive on time. For years my tradition was to get my dad a tie, but now that he's working from home and apparently super into hiking, it felt like time to switch things up. Whether your dad is an experienced marathoner or just discovering the benefits of foam rolling, he's sure to appreciate these tech and wellness items. They make the perfect Father's Day gifts for active dads, so what are you waiting for? Shop them below.

Allbirds Men's Tree Pipers — $95.00

My dad usually is a New Balance kind of guy, so imagine my surprise when he started raving about Allbirds the other day. Made from responsibly-sourced eucalyptus tree fiber, this lightweight sneaker is perfect for summer and already dad-approved.

Lululemon Metal Vent Tech Polo 2.0 — $88.00

Update dad’s Costco polo collection (just my dad?) with this lightweight, breathable one from Lululemon. It’s made for training, but also works for everyday activities. Plus, the fabric is infused with technology that helps prevent stinky bacteria from accumulating.

Amazon Fire HD 10 Productivity Bundle — $220.00

The new version of the Amazon Fire HD has 50 percent more RAM than the previous generation (something that seems like it would sound cool to my dad), and a faster processor. It supports apps available through the Amazon app store, so dad can do his workout classes without squinting at a small phone screen. Also included in this bundle: a 12-month subscription to Microsoft Office Personal and a Bluetooth keyboard/case.

Classpass Membership — $15.00

If dad is bored of his same old workout routine, help him jazz things up with a ClassPass subscription, which lets him go to different gyms without paying for a membership to each. Plans start at $15, which is enough credits for two classes a month, and goes up to $199 for 35 classes a month. Credits can also be used on spa and wellness treatments, and I don’t know anyone who couldn’t use a massage after last year.

Therabody Theragun Wave Roller — $149.00

This is the foam roller dad has been waiting for. It uses vibration therapy to really get in there and roll out sore muscles, all without making a ton of noise thanks to high-density foam.

Pact Premium Crew Socks 2-Pack — $17.00

Eventually you hit a point in your life where socks are somehow the best gift ever instead of the world’s most boring present. Show dad you finally understand why he got you socks for your birthday every year with this cushion-y pair from Pact. They’re made with organic cotton that uses over 90 percent less water than regular cotton.

Tile Sticker — $40.00

If your dad is the kind of person who sets their coffee on the top of their car and then drives off with it still there, they’ll appreciate this gift. These handy little stickers are equipped with Bluetooth tracking and can adhere to most things, making lost keys a thing of the past.
