A Faraday Father's Day Gift Guide
The Faraday Team chose 10 last minute Father’s Day gifts for a biking dad!
Picking out Father’s Day gifts can be a stressful task — racking your brain every year for hobbies and sports teams that Dad likes, while picking out a last-minute card at the local convenience store. This year, use our Faraday Father’s Day guide to pick out something for every bike-loving Father, from quality helmets to bike-mounted bottle openers (yes, those exist and we think they’re awesome). Father’s Day is less than a week away, so get going!
1. Commuting Pants
Ditch the fuzzy slippers and get Dad something he’ll actually wear. Betabrand has a great selection of clothing that is both professional and bike-friendly to make the morning commute that much more comfortable. Even better, you can save $25 on your purchase if you refer a friend.
2. Messenger Bag
Travel, work, weekends, bike rides — these Timbuk2 messenger bags work for any occasion. With almost everything at 30% off from now until Friday, you can snag a great gift at an affordable price.
3. Bike Bell
If you’re stuck on what to get Dad this Father’s Day, try something practical. Spurcycle has quality bike bells, a useful gift for Dad’s that commute by bike, live in the city, or don’t want to shout at pedestrians anymore.
4. Water Bottle
Everyone loves a good laugh. Make Dad smile this year with one of these hilarious Spurcycle bottles that will keep you hydrated and in a good mood. Warning: don’t fill with actual ketchup or mustard for your next ride.
5. A Movie
Already have enough bike gear? Have a movie night with dad for Father’s Day. We recommend watching the highly-acclaimed film The Bicycle Thief. This Italian cinema masterpiece brings you through the trials and tribulations of Antonio and Bruno, a father son duo who will be sure to make you tear up and hug each other. A definite cultural and inspiring way to spend Father’s Day night. Available on Amazon.
We love bikes. Dads love bikes. Why not show it with a Faraday Bike SF T-shirt? Our design is casual and subtle, and something to be worn long after Father’s Day. If this design doesn’t look like Dad’s style, check out our full selection of accessories to find something that does.
Style and safety meet with these Giro helmets. With a variety of styles and colors, you can find something practical and personal for Dad this year.
8. Shoe Conversion Kit
Don’t want to splurge for brand new biking shoes? You can make Dad his own of any old pair of shoes with these DIY conversion kits from Retrofitz.
9. Faraday Electric Bike
You’ve always wanted to get Dad something extra special for Father’s Day. Look no further — our Faraday Electric Bikes are beautiful, fun and something he’ll never forget. Dad gave you a boost when you were little. Now it’s time to give him one.
10. Bike-mounted Bottle Opener
Bikes and beer. What’s not to love? These Road Poppers can open almost any bottle and attaches to the rails under your saddle. This takes the phrase “road beer” to a whole new level. Or, “road soda” to be safe.
