The Ultimate Father’s Day Gift Guide for Every Guy

Father’s Day is fast approaching and it’s the perfect opportunity to show dad, step-dad, grandpa, uncles, big brothers, and important male role models everything they mean to us. So, whether he’s a tech enthusiast, a culinary connoisseur, an outdoor adventurer, or a fan of the finer things in life, we’ve found the perfect little something to make his day extra special.


For the Tech-Savvy Dad

  • Smart Home Gadgets
    If Dad is always scoping out new technology and downloading the latest apps, consider treating him to a Google Nest Hub or Alexa Smart Home device. Not only are they fun to talk to (try asking them to tell you a joke) but they’re a convenient and hands-free way to help with daily tasks.
  • Earbuds
    From hitting the gym to logging onto a Zoom call, earbuds are the perfect practical gift for Dad. Look for a pair with noise cancellation and a long battery life so dad can enjoy his favourite tunes and podcasts anytime.
  • Smart Watch
    Make sure Dad is always on time with a smart watch. Not only does it tell time, most smart watches include a multitude of features like a step counter, heart rate monitor, movement reminders, notifications, and more.

For the Foodie Dad

  • Grilling Set
    For the dad who loves to grill, a high-quality grilling set is a fantastic gift. Look for sets that include premium tools like tongs and spatulas, marinades, and spice rubs to elevate his BBQ game.
  • Cookbook
    Inspire Dad with new recipes this Father’s Day. Get Dad a cookbook so he can try a new cuisine or master a tried-and-true favourite dish. Write a personalized message inside for a thoughtful and memorable touch.
  • Cooking Classes
    Sign up pops for an in-person or online cooking class. Not only is it a great way for him to learn new tricks and tips, but you can enjoy the delicious end results, too. 

For the Outdoorsy Dad

  • Camping Gear
    If your dad loves the great outdoors, consider gifting him some new camping gear. A cozy sleeping bag, reusable water bottle, or portable first aid kit can make his next adventure even better.
  • Hiking Boots
    A good pair of hiking boots is essential for any outdoor enthusiast, especially with so many great spots in our own backyard. Make sure you choose a pair that are waterproof with a comfortable insole to keep Dad comfortable when he hits the trail.
  • Yard Games
    Try your luck at horseshoes, duel it out over croquet, or try your hand at backyard bocce with a fun yard game set. No backyard space? No problem! Load it up for a special Father’s Day picnic and play your new game together at the park.

For the Sophisticated Dad

  • A Dress Watch
    A classy watch can elevate any outfit. Treat pops to an elegant dress watch this Father’s Day and have it engraved for an added bonus.
  • A bottle of liquor
    Pour Dad a glass of his favourite on the rocks, straight up, or mixed as part of a classy cocktail. Not sure what’s Dad’s drink of choice? Opt for something made in BC as a nice way to support local while treating Dad to a great gift.
  • A new wallet or satchel
    Who says Dad doesn’t need new accessories? A new wallet, briefcase, or satchel is a great gift for Dad—especially if he’s working in the office. Considering adding a gift card for his favourite lunch spot or a package of his favourite sweet or salty snacks

However you choose to celebrate the guy, we wish all the dads and fantastic male role models a memorable and fun-filled day with family!
