Father’s Day is just around the corner, so naturally we’ve been thinking about ways to celebrate that special father or father figure in our lives. Whether he’s a gamer, a foodie, an outdoor enthusiast, or a homebody, there’s a thoughtful gift here that will remind him how much he’s loved and appreciated.

Gifts for the Outdoorsy Dad

If Dad loves spending time in the great outdoors, then these gifts are for him.

For Dads who love camping, fishing, or hiking, a Swiss Army knife is a practical and personal gift he can carry with him every day. Every time he needs a pocket knife, screwdriver, or pair of scissors, he’ll be reminded how much he’s loved. There’s a configuration to fit every dad’s needs from the classic Tinker knife, Fisherman, Fieldmaster, Explorer, or the SwissChamp with 33 functions. Most knives can also be personalized with your custom message.

A classic enameled percolator is the perfect companion for the campsite, cabin, or RV. This percolator blends old-fashioned charm and heavy-gauge steel functionality into one sturdy package for great-tasting, old-fashioned java.

Whether he’s relaxing in the backyard or sleeping under the stars, a camping hammock will keep him comfy and covered. This particular travel hammock weighs only 24 ounces and folds to the size of an eggplant. Comes with 9-foot tree straps and carabiners to hang between two trees.

There’s room for his glasses, rings, cufflinks, spare change, etc., as well as an option to charge his iWatch. This stand can be customized with a photo plaque, his initials, or a personal inscription.


Gifts for the Gamer Dad

Is Dad into video games? Or is he more of an old school table top gamer? These gift ideas will bring the fun!

“May all your crits be natural.” — This golden High Roller d20 die rolls nothing but 20s! It’s the perfect gift for the dad who’s a natural 20 in every way. Each solid metal die is 30mm tip to tip and comes in a beautifully inscribed box that lights up as it opens to shine on the High Roller in all its golden glory. This hefty die comes from The Storm Crow, a BC chain of “nerd bars” turned online-nerdy-stuff-store based right here in my backyard.

This gaming chair rocks and reclines for comfortable playing positions throughout Dad’s gaming sessions. Simply connect the chair to your gaming system or wireless enabled device, and the integrated 2.0 Bluetooth system and headrest-mounted speakers add to the immersive experience. Rocker chair fold down for storage when not in use.

Take gaming to whole new level with a virtual reality headset! The Oculus Quest 2 is the leading VR headset available right now. It runs as both a standalone headset with an internal, Android-based operating system (available in either 64GB or 256GB), and with Oculus-compatible VR software running on a desktop computer when connected over USB or Wi-Fi. Play the most popular VR games like Beat Saber, Onward, Down the Rabbit Hole, and highly anticipated The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners.


Gifts for the Foodie Dad

Or if Dad is an aspiring chef, surprise him with some kitchen ideas that will elevate his cooking to the next level.

A sous vide cooker circulates water at the exact temperature required for perfectly cooked meals, no matter what’s on your menu. Sous vide cooking is low-temperature cooking that cooks to the perfect level of doneness, locking in flavour and moisture for almost any food including chicken, fish, vegetables, eggs, beef, lamb, pork, and more. Since this cooker wireless, Dad can also program cooking time and check on his food through the app.

This personalized carving and serving board makes the perfect gift for the BBQ master in your life! Each handmade board is cut, carved, and sanded in North America, then personalized with custom laser engraving. Comes in walnut, maple, and cherry wood.

Does Dad do a lot of grilling, smoking, roasting, or baking? A pair of flame and heat-resistant neoprene gloves will protect him from temperatures up to 932℉. Unlike oven mitts, these have fingers which makes it so much easier to handle food and utensils. And since the neoprene rubber coating is food-grade and easily cleaned with a little dish soap and water, he can handle food directly on the grill, in the oven, or in boiling water/steam.
