Father's Day Gift Guide

By Maddy Weedle, Jun 14


With Father’s Day coming up on June 21st, we thought we'd help you shop for dad with a gift guide tailored to his unique style. So whether he's Mr. Outdoorsy, King of the Grill or a little bit quirky, we’ve got you covered with gift ideas that are sure to impress.                                                        

 

The Chef Dad: Grilling with House of Q Cookbook ($24.99 at Indigo Spirit)

This is the perfect gift for the barbeque loving dads out there. BBQ master Brian Misko knows all of the secrets to successful grilling, and now your dad can too. With a variety of recipes from shrimp tacos to grilled mac n' cheese, this cookbook will be the hit of summer backyard barbeques.

 

The Tech Dad: Bose Soundlink Mini Bluetooth Speaker ($199 at The Source)

Designed for life on the go, this portable, wireless speaker fits in the palm of your hand and lets you stream your music straight from your phone via Bluetooth. With up to seven hours of play time of full, natural sound this high-performance speaker is perfect for tech-savvy dads who crave the newest and coolest products.

The Outdoorsy Dad: Small Banff Bag ($388 at Roots)

Made in Canada from 100 per cent Italian leather this travel bag is perfect for a weekend getaway to the mountains. We love the passport pocket and zipper closure that makes this bag convenient for air travel as well. Designed with Roots' exclusive vintage tribe leather, this bag only gets better with age.

The Quirky Dad: Chill‘N Rock ($19.95 at Land & Sea)

This set of nine soap stones will allow your dad to enjoy his fine drinks cold without diluting the taste of the beverage. Easy to use, simply store the stones in the freezer for four hours then pour the desired drink over the rocks. Pair them with a bottle of scotch for the perfect Father’s Day gift.

The Sweet-Tooth Dad: Golf Balls ($11 at Purdy's Chocolatier)

A twist on the classic box of chocolates, these Chocolate Golf Balls are perfect for a golf enthusiast dad who has a bit of a sweet tooth. Specially made for the Father’s Day Collection, the sleeve features two white and two milk chocolate golf balls.

The On-The-Go Dad: Toykobike 26 ($1195 at Holt Renfrew)

The inspiration and ethos behind Tokyobike was to create a bike that is perfect for cycling through downtown Toyko. The company focuses on comfort over speed, and a feeling of lightness that allows you to enjoy the ride. Tokyobike 26 comes in a variety of colours and is perfect for the On-The-Go dad who bikes to work during the week, or enjoys the weekend cycling around the city.

 

The Well-Groomed Dad: Original Classic Shave Gift Certificate ($45 at Tommy Gun's)

Treat your dad to a little pampering with the Tommy Gun’s Original Classic Shave. This relaxing spa-like experience involves hot towels, a luxurious lather shave and a post shave cooling treatment. Purchase a $40 gift certificate from Tommy Gun’s between June 7 and June 21 and they’ll make it $50 for their Father’s Day Special.

 

The Environmental Dad: Succulents Terrarium ($89 at Orange Tree Floral Designs)

Bring the outdoors inside with these beautiful succulent terrariums from Orange Tree Floral Design. Your dad will love these terrariums because they are low maintenance, only needing watering once a week. Terrariums are very popular right now, as they are an easy way to brighten a room and last much longer than flowers.

 

The Classic Dad: Duck Hunting Needlepoint Flask ($90 at Brooks Brothers)

This flask features cotton yarn needlepoint detail with full leather trims and lining. The country club style flask is perfect for a preppy dad who loves to celebrate the little things.

The Charitable Dad: Prostate Cancer Canada Benefit Socks ($35 at Harry Rosen)

Your dad can feel good about wearing these limited edition Italian made statement socks by Marcoliani Milano because 100 per cent of the proceeds go to Prostate Cancer Canada. And let's not forget how stylish they are too!
