Foolproof Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Foolproof Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Dads are notorious for being hard to shop for, but that’s not really true… It’s just that they don’t create elaborate wish lists (or Pinterest boards) as mom does. So, this year we’re getting ahead of things and helping you find the perfect gift for dad – because it does exist.

These gift ideas won’t blow your budget and they’re appropriate whether you’ll be spending the day with Dad or delivering his gift and celebrating the day via Zoom.

6 gifts *almost* as good as the best bad dad joke…

Putting Practice

Is a day spent hitting the links your dad’s idea of the perfect day? There’s never been a better time for a socially distanced sport like golf, but some dads can’t tee off where they live and need putting practice.

An indoor putting green is the perfect way for him to work on that follow through and gain putting confidence.

Facial Hair Care

Is your dad a proud beard guy? Grooming and maintaining a beard takes time and dedication. Whether your dad has more of a light-and-scruffy situation  or a full-on-beard-and-moustache, a beard oil will nourish his skin (pampering!) and provide plenty of moisture to facial hair.

On the back of Father’s Day comes the season dads across the country deem the best… Grilling season! If your dad doubles as a pitmaster by night, a surefire way to put a smile on his face (and some good grub in his stomach) is with a grilling gift.

Visit TSC to update dad’s grilling utensils, like tongs, a grill press or basting brush, with Outset Grilling.

Alternatively, you might surprise dad with a delivery of his favourite cuts of meat via Inabuggy. The perfect treat for Father’s Day dinner!

Healthy Essentials

Was your dad devastated when his gym closed only to discover how much he loved the WFH (working out from home) life? If so, get him a gift from MyProtein to make training and recovery even more effective.

Protein powder and bars for muscle building, performance activewear, anti-inflammatory Omega-3s, straps/bands and mats, and more make perfect gifts for the fitness-focused father.

A Graphic Gift

Is your dad’s idea of dressing up a tuxedo printed t-shirt and his “good” jeans (aka the only pair without holes)? If he shows his love for classic puns and TV shows with a graphic tee, then Threadless is a sure bet! Choose the graphic, shirt colour, size, and even the graphic colour, for a super customized tee dad will only take off on laundry day.

Macho Self-care

If pain relief creams just aren’t cutting it for the dads with active jobs, the ones that spend weekends on projects around the house, or the goofy grandpa the grandkids use as a jungle gym, a massage gun is a great gift! The Theragun mini is powerful enough to work out knots and soothe any aches or pains without the bulk of other electric massage devices. Plus, it’s so small he can even take it on-the-go! Perfect for trips to the cottage or post-pick-up basketball game.
