Thanks to a high-quality fitness regimen, your dad is only looking better with age. For this upcoming Father’s Day, we suggest keeping that trend alive by snagging him the perfect gift.

You’ll find all those things and more in the following gift guide, which goes out to your favourite fitness freak, aka Dad.
UA HOVR Phantom 2 IntelliKnit
In partnership with UA
Athletic brand Under Armour wrapped their popular UA HOVR Phantom 2 sneakers in light and breathable IntelliKnit. As a direct result, your favourite runners now deliver 360-degrees of softness, stretch, and speed. That’s in addition to signature specs like Energy Web compression mesh and HOVR technology, which enable exceptional support and a zero-gravity feel.
Designed for high-energy return, UA IntelliKnit maps to the unique contours of your foot to improve upon flex and breathability. The proprietary material is also quick to dry and resoundingly comfortable from the first jog to the final sprint. That’s not to mention the stylish colourways and patterns, further distinguishing this footwear from the standard fare. Pick up a pair of UA’s latest to keep Dad firmly ahead of the pack.
Lyre’s Spirit Co Expresso Martini Gift Set

Dad might be avoiding alcohol in the name of optimal health, but that doesn’t mean he can’t enjoy a tasty libation. Enter this Non-Alcoholic Espresso Martini Gift Set from Lyre’s Spirit Co. It consists of two lip-smacking spirits—Coffee Originale and White Cane—both of which are completely delicious. Plus, two premium Coupette glasses perfect for every occasion. Use this incredible gift set to create an ice cold mocktail such as an espresso martini or a mojito.
Even without the mixers, these non-alcoholic spirits are perfectly sippable. The Coffee Originale is bursting with notes of espresso, spice, caramel, and toasted nuts, which gives way to a vanilla-forward finish. From the White Cane, you get a delectable blend of oak, sugar cane, coconut, and citrus, with a light peppery finish. Here’s to the good things in life! – AU$97.50
