Father’s Day is just over a week away so it’s time to start thinking about what to get dad this year. If your father’s are anything like mine, he’s a fairly simple guy that is impossible to shop for, because he doesn’t want anything – ever. I usually like to just spend the afternoon with my dad at a driving range or out having lunch because spending time together is really the best gift. But sometimes it’s nice to treat dad to a good gift, things he would never buy for himself but still actually use. I decided to throw together this quick Father’s Day gift guide to help make the impossible task of shopping for dad that much easier this year!
I recently had a chance to preview the Swarovski Fall/Winter 2018 collection with NKPR and asides from all the stunning jewellery and accessories they had for women, they had a great collection for men that got Swarovski on my radar for male gift-giving. These stainless steel cuff links with grey crystals are a great gift for dad whether it’s to compliment is office suits or perhaps to be worn for a special occasion coming up in the family! I love the button inspired design that makes these perfect to be worn either formally or for a casual event.
Casper Pillow, starting at $85
What do dads love more than beer, sports and BBQing? Sleeping of course! So why not get dad the best gift ever and get him a Casper Pillow? I’ve had mine for a few months now and not only have I been getting some of the best sleep I’ve had in a while, my pillow still feels as it did the first night I slept on it. The Casper pillow is made differently than your average pillow, they have a pillow zipped inside of a pillow like case, so you don’t get those sinking spots while you sleep. It’s made with breathable materials like 100% cotton that always make sure you’re sleeping on the cool side of the pillow. The Casper Pillow comes in 2 sizes, Standard and King, and they also just launched their nap size pillow, in case dad needs a snooze on the go!
Dads are really just big kids with responsibilities, so getting a dad a “toy” is often a safe bet when it comes to gift giving. This Leatherman Tread Tempo watch is not only a toy, but a super useful gadget that dad is sure to get plenty of use. The Tread Tempo is the world’s first multi-tool watch with over 30 tools built in including a Phillips head screwdriver and a bottle opener. The watch itself is still a sleek design making it a great piece to wear dressed up but functional and tough for everyday use!
Bivouak Beard Oil & Shaving Cream, $32.50 & $42.
Dads are definitively the originators of good beards, but not always the ones to keep up with their grooming supplies. Help dad out this Father’s Day with the Bivouak Beard Oil & Shaving Cream available at The Detox Market. The brand is from Paris and creates toxin-free products for men, to give them alternatives to the average products on the market. Both products have a masculine woody scent that dad is sure to love, and whether your dad’s a beard guy or clean shaven Bivouak has his facial grooming taken care of! You can use my code THEMJELLE10 to save 10% on your order, a little gift for you!
JP Wiser’s 15 YO Canadian Whisky, $49.95
If you’re looking to just go with a simple gift dad is sure to love, and one you can share with him, than this bottle JP Wiser’s 15 YO Canadian Whisky engraved with a Father’s Day message is your best bet. A classic Whisky and a favourite of connoisseurs, this 15 YO has the smooth and rich flavours of banana and caramel with a dried fruit and nutmeg finish. Note this engraved bottle is sold exclusively online, however I’m sure any LCBO has a great selection of Whiskys, Scotches or whatever Dad’s drink of choice may be!
