Big, small, modern, traditional – this round-up of gifts for Dad has got it all. Pool your pennies with the sibs for a group gift, or bestow a small but thoughtful present that lets them know we’re so appreciative of all they do.
Time Concept Portable BBQ Griller and Smoker
Maybe he’s starting to dabble in smoking his beloved meat – or perhaps he’s so enamoured of BBQing and smoking that he wants to be able to hone his craft wherever he goes – to the cottage, on camping trips or even road trips. We’re certainly on board to surf at the beach and then grill some turf on our very own BBQ.
$90, available at Indigo
Kozliks Triple Crunch Mustard
This mustard is the absolute bomb and elevates a simple sandwich to gastro heights hitherto not experienced in the kitchen. We’re also big, big fans of the Market Mustard flavour – in fact, any of their products would be perfect combined into a personal gift basket. Tasty. Mouth-watering. And Canadian, to boot.
Bose Soundlink Bluetooth Speaker
This speaker has it all – great sound, totally portable, and a size that makes it easy to take to the cottage, anywhere in the house, the backyard or on travels. No need to compromise on surround sound and he can say goodbye to docking stations and cords. Bose, we all love you.
$200, available at BestBuy
Roots Canada 150 Hoody
Better believe he’ll be ready for Canada’s 150 celebrations with this classic from Roots. Made of unbelievably durable and cozy fabric, this may be the only hoody he’ll ever need.
$128, available at Roots
Indigo Taco Rack
Finally, an implement to help him with cooking tacos for a crowd. Not only does this ingenious rack hold the tacos upright to allow them to be filled, but then the whole kit and caboodle can go on the BBQ to get taco shells crispy and melt the cheese. Heaven.
$22, available at Indigo
Lululemon 5-Year Basic Tee
Oh yes, he’s been converted to the great fit and materials of the Lululemon brand. We can see him wearing this quick dry T-shirt on weekends, to the gym, and maybe even to work. Great lines, colours and our own personal favourite super soft pima cotton.
Urban Outfitters Cassette Player and Mixed Tape
He is simply overjoyed that cassette tapes are starting to make a comeback – so much so that the perfect gift would be a device for him to listen all of the recently released cassettes and original mixes he’ll be keen to produce. Why not bundle it with an awesome tape – the Guardians of the Galaxy infamous mix?
The Created Co Pint Glass
Can’t Stop. Won’t Stop. Being awesome, that is. He’ll adore this pint glass in black and steel – perfect for any beverage. If he does enjoy a beer or two, why not pair this offering with a new delicious brew for gift set he’ll enjoy with gusto. Plus, 10% of each glass purchased goes to help build wells to provide safe and clean drinking water – win, win.
Bourbon-infused Maple Syrup
This is certainly a match made in heaven that we – um, he – will be sure to adore. Bourbon adds some smoky depth to delicious maple syrup, his favourite sweetener that surprisingly is as wonderful in coffee as it is on flapjacks.
What are you getting the Dad in your life this year? We’d love to know!
