While your drawers may be stocked with Align leggings and Scuba sweatshirts, the guys in your life deserve to have some lululemon swag in their closets, too. Luckily, the brand has an incredible selection for men, whether he loves to golf, run, lift or hit the studio for some hot yoga. And since Father's Day is fast approaching on June 18, there's no better time to snag him something.

Selecting gear based on the activity your man is into will ensure he has an optimal workout sesh. For example, if golfing is his thing, a pair of breathable golf pants ($128) will keep him looking sleek and cool for all 18 holes of the course. And if he's a runner, a shorter, lightweight style like these Pace Breaker Linerless Shorts ($68) will help him avoid chafing and sweat buildup, as opposed to heavier cotton shorts, which tend to rub and bunch up. No matter the design, lululemon puts thought behind all of its styles to ensure the stretch, breathability, cut and fabric type are tailored to the type of movement performed in each piece of clothing.

Throwing on a comfy hoodie for a workout is great for warming up or cooling down. This one is made to wick sweat and is crafted from a lightweight material that won't add to your body heat. "These are warm enough when it’s cold, while not being too warm for a work out. (I can wear these for a whole 50-minute spin class)," reports one customer. A few others note that they tend to run a bit small, so sizing up may be a good idea.
