With Father’s Day less than a week away, it’s time to start thinking about good old dad! It’s time to stop procrastinating and start thinking about what that guy who gave you life really wants! To help all you last minute gift givers, I put together a list of the best gifts any father would love!
1. A Signature Timepiece
I think every dad needs a great watch and I know my father is absolutely obsessed with them! Also, if your dad is a soccer fan like mine, Tissot has come out with their Quickster Football Collection just in time for the World Cup and Father’s Day!
2. Monthly Meat Subscription to the Carnivore Club
All dads love meat and the Carnivore Club makes it easy to feed that passion. The Carnivore Club is a monthly-based club that provides subscribers with an impressive faux wooden box filled with 4-6 hand crafted cured meats from top artisans.
3. A Fine Bottle of Liquor
Even if your father isn’t a big drinker, having a bottle of scotch, whiskey, or cognac around for a special occasion or for entertaining is never a bad idea.
4. A Grooming Kit
Whether your father is clean shaven or enjoys a good beard, Billy Jealousy has something to suit his every need. With fans like George Clooney and Keanu Reeves, a gift from Billy Jealousy will definitely show him how important he is to you!
5. A Classic Robe
I think every father needs to have a break and relax sometime and a robe could be just the comfort he needs. Whether he’s lounging around the house or relaxing after a warm shower, every dad needs a classic robe.
6. A Good Quality Cigar
When I think of the quintessential man’s man, I always picture him with a cigar. I’m not saying you or your father should take up smoking but having that occasional cigar with a glass of cognac is a feeling like no other.
7. Something you can do Together
Just last week I visited the Stella Artois and GOTSTYLE Father’s Day gifting shop here in Toronto at Queen St. West and Spadina and they had put together quite a few out-of-the-box Father’s Day activities for you and dad to enjoy together. From sailing lessons to falconry, caving, fly-fishing and baristo lessons, each is a perfect way to spend time with dad, no matter what his style is.
I know this suggestions sounds like something you’ve got him in the past but getting him his signature scent or new masculine fragrance is something he’ll truly appreciate.
9. An LCBO or Beer Store Gift Card
For the hard to shop for dad, give him the gift that allows him to choose with a LCBO or Beer Store gift card!
10. A Suit
No matter who your father is, there comes a point where he is going to have to wear a suit and it’s probably time to update his tailored clothing game. Depending your father’s frame and where he’ll wear the suit to, try to get him something that is timeless like a grey 2 button suit from Z Zenga. He’ll appreciate the money you’ll spend on a well-known suiting label and will be proud to wear it whenever it’s necessary.
I hope my recommendations help and to all the fathers out there a very happy Father’s Day!
