The Best Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Runner Dads

father's day gift

I recently created a Mother’s Day Gift Guide for Runner Moms! I figured I would do the same thing and create a gift guide for Runner Dads too! Many of us have dads who love to run in our lives. If you’re not sure what to get for your father, husband, or grandpa that likes to run, you’ve come to the right place! There are many cool running gifts that are just perfect for dads! These are also great if you need to order last minute father’s day gifts!

Check out this list to get some ideas of gifts he will love!

The great news is these Father’s Day Gifts are from Amazon. Theyโ€™re easy to order and will arrive at your doorstep in 2 days or less if you use Amazon Prime (if you donโ€™t have Amazon Prime, you can click here for a 30-day free trial!)! If you want to order some last minute Father’s Day gifts, these would be perfect since they can deliver so quickly! I personally love to shop at Amazon for ease and convenience.

Running Shirts

These are a few really cute and funny running shirts that runner dads would love! What dad doesn’t love t-shirts? If you click the links, you’ll see that the shirts are available in a variety of different colors too! I love how the first 2 have funny sayings on them! Definitely some Dad humor!

Runner Mugs

If your dad loves coffee, he would love one of these coffee mugs. Mugs make a great gift and they are a daily reminder of his favorite hobby and how much his kids love him!

Medal Display

Does your dad love to run races? Thereโ€™s no better way to show off dad’s race accomplishments than with a Medal Display! This one is made especially for dads. If your dad has put in the hard work to train for and complete races, this is the perfect way to help her display his medals and honor his accomplishments.

Running Hats/Headlamps

I found this cool beanie hat that has a built-in LED headlamp which would make an awesome gift for dad to use during his runs.  The built-in light will make it easier to see during runs in the dark.  And it also comes in a variety of different colors!  I’ve also included a nice running hat or a traditional headlamp that can be used while running in the dark.

Athletic Performance Socks

I think these socks are so cute! They say “You’re the best Dad” on the sole, and the best part is they are athletic performance socks, so they can be used for running! These would be such a nice gift for runner dads!

  1. Yes, it just occurred to me yesterday that Father’s Day is coming up! My husband got me a running mug for Mother’s Day- I think I’ll get him one as well. I’ll check out the ones you recommend. Thanks!

  2. These are all great ideas! Turns out runner dads seem to like a lot of the same things we do. I need to find something for my non running hubs

  3. Great ideas! My husband’s birthday was just in May so its hard coming up with gifts again so soon for Father’s day. I need to find something for my dad too, but he doesn’t run. The mugs and shirts are great!

  4. My dad doesn’t run anymore, but my husband loves running gear!
    I think he would enjoy a new headlamp – his is on the brink. Thanks for the idea, Lauren!

  5. My husband doesn’t run. It can be hard enough to get him to walk! We don’t have kids, though, so the upside is no need for FD gifts (of course I also don’t get MD gifts).

    Although I might have something up my sleeve for this year — sort of a gift for us both. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Great ideas!

    Mine has kind of shifted from running to the gym, but there’s a definite overlap!

  7. Such great ideas! Thanks for the ideas! Some of these will be great for my husband!

  8. My husband has told his grandsons no more coffee mugs! He uses the same one every day and our cupboards are full!

  9. These are great! I was thinking of getting some kind of graphic tee for my husband!

  10. We have a joke in our household that when in doubt, get my husband socks — and sure enough, he’s getting some new running ones this Father’s Day!
