Father’s Day takes place Sunday, June 17. Need gift ideas? Central City has tons of ways to celebrate dad! Give him a gift to match his interests; here are some ideas from the shops and services at Central City…
If your dad is a beer connoisseur, present him with a selection of locally brewed beers like the award-winning Red Racer series from Central City Liquor Store. We’re sure he’d also appreciate a set of six quality made Dailyware Craft Brew Beer Tasting Glasses from Bed Bath & Beyond and/or the National Geographic Atlas of Beer (Globe-Trotting Journey Through the World of Beer) hardcover guidebook from Black Bond Books. Top the gift up with a selection of sweet and savoury nuts or other yummy beer snacks from T&T Supermarket or Walmart.
Does your dad love the outdoors? Pick up a tent, sleeping bag, rolling cooler, folding chair, or other cool camping essentials for his next adventure at Walmart or Bed Bath & Beyond. We particularly love the Wakeman Outdoors LED Camping Lantern from Bed Bath & Beyond that features a portable design, handle, and dimmer switch to adjust the brightness. Dad would also appreciate the GoPro HERO5 Waterproof 4K Sports & Helmet Camera from Best Buy to capture his excursions with advanced 12MP image sensor, advance video stabilization, and protune control.
Is dad’s favourite hangout the office? Give him a fashion-forward tie in a trendy floral, circle, or stripe print from Le Château to finish his look. Or consider a gift of a pair of stainless steel cufflinks or a metal card business case from Things Engraved; make it an extra special gift by personalizing it with an engraved message or his initials. He’d also love the Apple iPad mini from Best Buy featuring 7.9-inch Retina display, touch ID fingerprint sensor, up to 10 hours of battery life, and two speaker audio.
Give dad a healthy gift with a smart fitness watch like the water and shock-resistant Samsung Gear Sport watch in variety of colours that features a heart rate monitor, a GPS, and altimeter from Best Buy. He’d also appreciate a membership to Club 16 Trevor Linden Fitness at Central City… with state-of-the-art cardio and strength training equipment and unlimited Group Fitness classes, it gives him tons of convenient workout opportunities. Another great gift option? A bold graphic print dry-fit Nike or Adidas t-shirt or shorts from Foot Locker.
Does dad take pride in his looks? Give him the gift of style with a luxurious hot shave or cutting edge hair cut from Man Cave Barber Shop. Why not visit Shoppers Drug Mart at Central City and pick up a new cologne for dad? The store carries a wide selection of scents from top designers, brands, and celebrities including the popular Bvlgari Aqva, Burberry Brit, and Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio. While there, pickup his favourite skin care products including cleaners, toners, moisturizers, and sunscreen from lines like L’Oréal Men Expert or Vichy Homme.
Does dad love to explore? Get him the Swiss Gear La Sarinne Lite series of expendable spinner luggage from Bentley; constructed of durable yet lightweight hardside materials, it has a retractable push-button handle that locks into place when extended. He’d also appreciate the handy Tracker digital luggage scale so he can avoid extra luggage charges. Feeling generous? Give dad an amazing trip to a major sports event… tennis fans would love an trip to the Rogers Cup in Toronto and golf lovers would go crazy over a trip to the PGA Championships in Missouri from Maritime Travel or Flight Centre at Central City.
If dad likes to BBQ, gift him with a selection of BBQ accessories. We like the quality-made, durable, and stainless steel 3-Piece BBQ Kickstand Tool Set from Bed Bath & Beyond. Dad would also appreciate a Cedar Wood BBQ Scraper from Showcase; it’s made of non-toxic, environmentally-safe, and renewable materials that is a safe alternative to the traditional wired grill brush. Or get your favourite grillers a selection of gourmet BBQ sauces and spices and/or a heavy duty BBQ apron from Winners. Is your dad extra special? Give him a Grill Chef 70,500 BTU Dual-Fuel BBQ from The Brick so he can create delicious meals all summer long!
Give dad a heartfelt homemade gift. Pick up a blank card, stickers, and pens from Dollarama and make dad a personalized card. Make your own custom t-shirt for dad with a plain t-shirt and fabric markers from A Buck or Two. Or pick up breakfast ingredients like pancake mix, fresh fruit, and bacon from Walmart and treat dad to breakfast in bed!
