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 into reading, anime, gadgets, or grilling, there’s a thoughtful gift here that’ll spoil Dad and remind him how much he’s loved and appreciated.
If you’re stumped and looking for that perfect gift for Dad, here are some of our favourite ideas for Father’s Day this year.
Pamper Dad with some quality hair care! STMNT Grooming Goods is a new creator-driven brand from Sophie Pok (Los Angeles), Julius Arriola (Los Angeles), and Miguel Gutierrez (United Kingdom). Made up of four lines — one specifically curated by each creator plus a general care line — the STMNT collection offers a range of high-performing grooming goods ranging from shampoos, conditioners and all-in-one care products to pomades, sprays and powders for both long and short styles.
Some of our favourite products from this collection include STMNT Beard Oil, which noticeably softened and smoothed my guy’s beard on his first use, and STMNT Hair & Body Cleansing Bar. The cleansing bar is a great option for the gym as it replaces shampoo and soap in one solid, no-spill format, though the price point is rather steep. Both products feel and smell amazing with a warm and citrusy scent that lasts all day without being overpowering.
Hubby was also a big fan of STMNT Fiber Pomade in Sophie Pok’s Staygold line, a glistening, golden paste, which gives a strong but natural-looking hold without stickiness (and smelled pretty damn good too). STMNT is available at select salons across Canada and on Amazon.ca.
For your literary dad, this unique “Dad” art piece from Book Art Boutique on Etsy is entirely folded by hand from the pages of a hardcover book. The perfect gift to display in his library or on a bookshelf.
Your gadget-loving Dad will love having a miniature tool box in his pocket at all times with this multifunction tool pen. It comes with 9 handy functions: twist ballpoint pen, ruler, flat screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, bottle opener, stylus, level, and LED flashlight.
Surprise Dad with a set of Labeled by Long Creations custom beer bottle labels made from your own special photos. You can either have digital files emailed to you for printing at home, or choose sticky labels (matte or waterproof) to be sent through snail mail ready to slap on Dad’s beer bottles to celebrate his special day.
For Dads who love their morning cup of joe, how about a brew with a little extra oomph? Death Wish bills itself as the world’s strongest coffee with twice the caffeine of regular coffee. Made from Fair Trade and USDA Certified Organic Arabica and Robusta beans, Death Wish comes in either dark or medium roast.
This 2-in-1 water bottle combines stainless steel, double-wall vacuum-insulated technology with a spacious, hidden storage compartment. Made from food-grade stainless steel and BPA-free components, the vacuum insulated flask can keep beverages hot or cold for up to 12 hours, at the same time as it keeps Dad’s keys, cash, credit cards, or other valuables safe. He can also use it to stash small snacks, protein for a protein shake, biscuits for tea, or cheese for wine!
Laurent from Custom Caricature Shop boasts he can draw your dad in any style. Does Dad love Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Simpsons, Attack on Titan, Disney, chibi, Tim Burton, or Rick & Morty? He’ll love a one-of-a-kind portrait of the two of you, created from your photos. Available as either a digital file or a printed copy.
Dads do what all the best coaches do—they motivate, mentor, discipline, and love. Author and parenting expert Tom Limbert takes wisdom from John Madden, Vince Lombardi, Tommy Lasorda, Phil Jackson, and many more, and applies it to fatherhood. Featuring photos of coaches in action with brightly coloured quotes to help Dad keep his head in the game, this volume is perfect for any new or soon-to-be dad. With a foreword written by Hall of Fame Quarterback Steve Young where he talks about his own family and shares real-life experiences.
A good portable propane grill is a must for camping, day trips, and anywhere else Dad loves to grill! This Coleman camping grill cooks with up to 20,000 total BTUs and fits a 10 inch pan. The 2-in-1 design lets him use the stove and grilling section at the same time so lunch is ready in half the time.
Upgrade Dad’s multimedia setup with Govee TV LED backlights. The included 1080p intelligent camera captures colours on the TV screen and automatically applies them to the LED strip light segments on the back of the TV, displaying multiple colours simultaneously for an immersive movie, gaming, or music experience. The control box is also equipped with a built-in mic so the lights can sync to music. Compatible with Govee Home app, Alexa, or Google Assistant.
Help Dad wake up easier and more energized with a smart sleep and wake-up alarm clock light. He can relax and fall asleep easier with light-guided breathing and simulated sunset, then wake up with a gradual simulated sunrise. Other smart features on this model include midnight lamp, FM radio, phone charging dock, power back-up, speaker, auto dimming display, smart snooze, and AmbiTrack sensor that measures bedroom sleeping environment.
