Is your father obsessed with sports? Does he watch every kind of team game with the utmost passion? Is he interested in pretty much anything that involves physical movement and strategy? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, we think you know by now what that means: Your father is a sports nut.
Sure, you could get him a jug of golf balls or a sports cable package for Father’s Day. Or you could get him something completely awesome–and slightly insane. We found Ten Crazy Sports-Centric Gifts perfect for the sporty Dad who loves adventure or wants to try something new.
If your Father is a football lover and is always down for a pick-up game, this Stuff Football is a perfect gift. It would be sort of weird to drag a ball around everywhere and that’s how this Stuff Football comes into play.
It can be folded, put in the pocket, and stuffed with anything random whenever your Dad feels like throwing a ball around.
OK, so we just think this is cool and archery is an Olympic recognized sport, even if they don’t use Medieval style crossbows. Maybe they should and we’d actually watch it.
And, we think this gift if perfect for the sporty Renaissance Faire Dad. We know that combo must exist somewhere.
Show off your fancy gifting footwork with boxing gear from the Everlast Muhammad Ali Collection. The collection includes handwraps, heavy bags, gloves, and an inspirational quote from Ali somewhere on the gear.
Dad might not have played beer pong since college and we guess it’s not officially a “sport.” But it’s semi-athletic in the sense that it is more physical than sitting on the couch drinking a beer and, let’s face it, your Dad will probably love a competitive drinking game with his buds.
If boozin’ around the house with ping pong balls isn’t your father’s speed than give him a little pep in his step on the golf course with this Segway X2 Golf . It’s cooler than a golf cart, easier than walking, and kind of reminds us of a space age robot assistant.
If we were a Dad we’d ride this thing around the backyard with beers in the ball carrier.
Maybe there aren’t real sharks in your backyard pool, but with this weatherproof pool table, your Dad can be a pool shark while hanging out in his swim trunks in the, well, pool.
We know lots of Dads that were skateboarders when they were kids, but gave it up once they got older. Re-ignite that skating passion in your Pops with a FreeRider SkateCycle that has front and rear wheels with foot holes to balance on.
The SkateCycle is a cool, portable fusion of a skateboard and bicycle and would be a fun way for your Dad to commute to his stuffy 9-to-5 job.
Not only does the Sportcraft Step Back 3 only retail for about $150, this arcade-style mini-basketball game would be a perfect toy for your Dad to practice his free-throws from the confines of his man cave–whatever the weather.
2. Puma Phone
This smartphone from major sports manufacturer, Puma, is just super cool.
The Puma designed phone was created for the active person in mind and includes the regular smartphone perks as wells as a GPS and compass perfect for hiking, a pedometer, and a built-in solar cell for charging when your athletic Dad is bouldering up some cliff.
1. Jetlev Flyer
Maybe this would be a dream purchase for the water ski junkie dad, but it’s a jetpack run on water! It’s the wave of the future and it literally makes waves!
