As much as we all feel like we have been on hold for the last several months, the time keeps on ticking. Suddenly, we find ourselves in June and it’s time for our Father’s Day 2020 Gift Guide!
You might be ready to take on the mall, or you may be a little hesitant. You might be wondering just WHERE those last 10 weeks went? We’ve got you covered with items you can find in your local stores, and online so Dad can be spoiled on his special day no matter how you choose to celebrate. Zoom calls , social distancing BBQ’s and hugs from a distance might be what your Father’s Day looks like this year, but we can make the best of it with a little creativity.
So here friends, is our Father’s Day 2020 Gift Guide!
For the Sporty Dad
Bridgestone Golf NEW Tour B Line Golf Balls
On AMAZON for $66 a dozen
Created with input by Tiger himself, these balls are one of the top of the line – you know – the ones your dad won’t buy for himself! A box or two of these will put a smile on dad’s face and maybe take a stroke or two off his game. Add a game of golf and you have the perfect Father’s Day outing as well!
Lululemon Surge Short 6″ Liner Special Edition
Available at Lululemon $88 CAD
Available in three colours, the dad in our house claims these are the most comfortable workout shorts ever made. The liner is a little longer than the actual short and keeps “everything” in place for a long sweat sesh. Dad will look especially trendy in the Lunar Rock colour shown above.
Available on AMAZON for $287
If you can’t bring yourself to spend $500 on the full version, this “mini” is said to be the best massager on the market. Dad will love slipping this into his golf bag for a quick pre / post game massage. If he travels a lot, this is the perfect lightweight addition to the carry on.
For the Foodie / Mixologist Dad
Home Cocktail Smoking Kit
Available at Spirits with Smoke for $164.99
Have a dad that loves creating cocktails and showing off his expertise? Spirits with Smoke (a fantastic local company) can help dad add a unique flair to his next dinner party with a kit to smoke his own cocktails. These boards make it easy and fun to add a smoky customized flavour to a favourite cocktail with a super cool presentation his guests won’t soon forget! Check out some of our fav. Scotch HERE to pair with it for the perfect gift.
GLASS FREEZE™ BEER GLASSES
Available on AMAZON for $44.20 (set of two)
Does dad crave the perfect cold pint, but cringe when the last half is lukewarm? These cooling beer pint glasses have the best reviews – simply freeze ahead and the beer stays cold until the last drop.
Le Creuset Cast Iron Skinny Grill
Available at Williams Sonoma for $149.95
Let’s celebrate the dad that loves to get in the kitchen. You know him – the dad that has been watching The Food Network for the last several months? Dad will love this cast iron grill perfect for the BBQ or the stove top and it comes in 7 signature Le Creuset colours so you can pick dad’s fav.
Merlot Infused Coffee
Available at UNCOMMON GOODS for $27.50 CAD
For the finale of a great meal, Dad will be so stoked to offer the perfect after dinner drink! Coffee beans aged in oak wine barrels this coffee is caffeinated, but doesn’t have any alcohol and is a fun way to end dinner. Pair with a “World’s Best Dad” mug and you’ve got the perfect gift!
FOR THE TECH SAVVY DAD
Philips Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock with Colored Sunrise Simulation and Sunset Fading Night Light
Find it on AMAZON for $158 CAD
The alarm clock sleep experts recommend! This alarm clock light slowly increases in intensity, shifting from soft dawn red to warm orange to bright yellow over a period of 30 minutes to wake up Dad in the most friendly way. If Dad is still sleeping when the room is fully lit, as a last resort, this clock features sound to get him moving!
Garmin Approach S40 – GPS Golf Smartwatch
Buy it on AMAZON for $320 CAD
Think of this watch as an activity tracker with benefits! This smartwatch has over 30,000 golf courses loaded, showing dad course elevation as well as distance from the pin to help improve each shot. I know this is one item my husband is secretly hoping HE gets for Father’s Day!
It sounds gimmicky but having access to all that info with the flick of your wrist is actually pretty cool – and something the tech savvy dad will totally love.
Available at APPLE for $329
Because Dad deserves the best, and we have come to expect just that from Apple. The “new and improved” AirPods feature active noise cancellation that turns on and off. I love this. For those of you that exercise with dad (or your husband), this means that he will be able to hear his music and listen to you filling him in on the latest, all at the same time. With a more customized fit (three different size inserts) and the fact that they are sweat and waterproof, Apple has once again come up with tech that is on every dads list this year.
For the Fashionista Dad – and yes – men CAN be Fashionista’s!
Ugg Brunswick Robe
Available at UGG for $195 CAD
If you are buying for dad, your mom will be so happy to see him in a “new outfit” after the last few months of isolation. If you are buying for your husband – haven’t you already burned the robe he’s been living for the past 10 weeks? Time for a fresh start. Soft, cozy, with a hood and everything we have come to know and love about UGG. Dad might not take it off for another 2 months… 🙂
Secrid Mini Wallet
Available at HARRY ROSEN for $95 CAD
Stylish and super functional this wallet has become super popular for its unique protective aluminum card sleeve, which stops breaking and bending of Dad’s credit cards, and unwanted wireless communication fraud attempts. Style – check! Function – check!
Flower Pocket Square
Available at TED BAKER for $59 CAD
So you don’t want to go with the boring old tie, but you are not brave enough to buy actual clothing for Dad? Why not impress him with a flashy pocket square. Fashionista men love to throw a little something unexpected into their workwear. This daisy print silk pocket square in a bold coral hue does the trick. If you don’t think Dad can handle the vibrancy of the coral – it does come in a more subdued navy as well. Super well priced, this is a fun accessory maybe Dad wouldn’t buy for himself but would totally love.
So there you have it – our Father’s Day 2020 gift guide. Of course, we could have gone for days with all the cool things out there for dad but here are a few ideas to get you started.
