When I was a kid, Father’s Day meant handmade cards, ugly ties, and Old Spice cologne. Even now, every time I catch of whiff of Old Spice it takes me back. It smells like Dad!
It’s been 30 years, and some things don’t change. Kids are still making cards with little hammers and ties and baseballs on them, and time spent with Dad is still the best present, but shopping for Father’s Day seems to get harder and harder every year. Sometimes it seems like he already has everything! If you’re feeling a little stuck like me, check out Sears Canada for some Father’s Day gift inspiration this year!
If your guy is anything like mine, the last thing he’ll ever do is buy clothes for himself. With summer on the way, it’s a great time to update Dad’s wardrobe with some cool and casual summer wear perfect for the cottage or camping with the family. Give him a pair of classic chino shorts ($19.97) or chino pants ($29.97) paired with a casual Pima cotton tee ($12.97) or poplin long sleeve shirt ($24.97). Add a pair of comfortable slip on or lace up canvas shoes ($14.99) made for weekend barbecues and kicking back on the deck.
Or if Dad’s all about music, surprise him with a new set of wireless Bluetooth Headphones ($39.99) or a Premium Stereo Bluetooth Speaker ($39.99) with dual speakers, stereo output, wireless Bluetooth transmission, and USB memory. Both connect with a phone or tablet up to 10 meters away (compatible with iOS and Android), so Dad can take his music anywhere this summer.
Speaking of music, check out the upcoming music listings in your area to see if there are any concerts or shows that Dad would love to see and slip a pair of tickets inside your Father’s Day card. Alternatively, lots of cities have free outdoor concerts in the summer that the whole family can attend!
If Dad is more into the great outdoors, check out this Canada 150 metal cooler ($69.97) exclusive to Sears Canada. He’ll love the retro-inspired look perfect for holding his drinks in style at the backyard Canada Day barbecue, not to mention all the family picnics, camping trips, and Little League games this year.
