Dads. What is it that makes them one of the hardest people to shop for? Whether dad says he wants nothing or everything we’ve put together a quick gift guide to help you pick the right gift for that great guy.
Something he wants: Has Dad been hinting that he wants a new FitBit? Maybe a sporty pair of ear buds? Sports equipment? Why not treat him to something fun and outdoorsy and join Dad for a hike, bike ride, picnic in the park, or just a walk around the block. You’ll find what he wants at Sport Chek. Give Dad the gift he wants and the gift of quality time, too.
Something he needs: Sometimes the best gifts aren’t wants but needs. Make sure Dad is prepared for an emergency and equipped with an easy-to-reach first aid kit for the man cave, garage, shed, or even car. Or if he’s more the handy-man type, why not get Dad a cool gadget or multi-tool from Atmosphere he can use to tackle his next project? Still not sure? Make an appointment for Dad to have a little he time and treat him to a professional haircut and shave at Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop then snap a few sweet selfies together to celebrate his new look.
Something he wears: Dad’s wardrobe looking a little lacklustre? Why not spruce it up for him? Grab dad a new pair of comfy lounge pants and a soft tee from Boathouse or Gap Factory Store to relax in at home—the perfect cuddly movie night outfit. Dad like to dress up? There’s no replacement for a crisp clean new collared shirt from Moores. Plus it’s the perfect thing to wear if you’re going to hit the town for dinner.
Something he eats (or drinks): When in doubt, give dad a sweet treat, a savoury sip, or both! Pair a box of assorted chocolates from Purdys Chocolatier with some local craft brews or an aged whiskey or bourbon from Signature BC Liquor to build a great gift and one-of-a-kind tasting flight for Father’s Day.
No matter what you get for dad, show your love, show your appreciation, and say thanks—for everything.
