For The Men Gift Ideas | Activewear

May 19, 2015

I know that men argue us women are hard to shop for but I disagree, men are so much harder to shop for than women.  I am starting up a series with gift ideas for the men in your life since Father’s Day is just a few weeks away.  First up Athletic Wear

My dad, Matt and my brother all love athletic wear.  Even if they are not technically working out this what they wear on the weekend.

I am always looking for comfortable athletic shorts for Matt.

They all tend to prefer the loose knit or mesh casual shorts.

Nordstrom always has a great selection of athletic wear- plus if you find it cheaper they will price match.

Under Armor Shorts | Nike Dri Fit Shorts (Matt’s favorite) | Under Armor Mesh Shorts | Adias Shorts

mens shorts

Matt had to stop running because of his back problems but if the men in your life run, these are a few great running shorts options.
Under Armor Shorts | Nike Dri-Fit | Nike 2 in 1 running shorts

For the Golf Lovers.  My Dad and brother are big into golf and they love these lightweight polos.

Nike Shadow Stripe Polo | Nike Vent Stripe Polo | Nike Dri-Fit Polo (comes in 9 different colors)

golf shirts

Athletic Tees always pair nicely with the shorts for a full set gift.
These are all under $35 so they aren’t too expensive

Under Armor Loose Knit Tee |   Nike Dri Fit Tee | Under Armour UA Tech Tee

mens tees

 I know most men like lounge pants as well.  I love the flat front golf pants, great for the golf lover paired with one of the polos above.

A few other sporty ideas. We all love the Under Armour no show socks,  they are awesome.  No joke my Dad asks for socks every year.  I guess it is something you don’t want to buy for yourself, so I usually throw a set in with whatever gift I give him.

Leather Wallet and Card Case | Preformance Watch Watch | Card Case | Iphone Hand Strap Case |
No show Socks | Nike Sunglasses | Reversible Belt

A few other gift ideas for the men.

    This is an amazing and very helpful post. I agree…men are hard to buy for!! My husbands bday, father's day and our anniversary are all within 5 weeks so gift giving for him really gets tricky. Thanks again for the suggestions. šŸ™‚
