You never mean to leave a gift until the last minute, especially a gift for someone who has spent your entire life raising you. But we will all (sheepishly) admit that time gets away from us. That ’s why we’ve done quite a bit of thinking about these perfect father’s day gifts. With the holiday right around the corner, there is still time to get dad a well thought out gift.
I Love You Dad Journal $14.95 at IndigoEvery parent’s favourite part of a good gift is a thoughtful card. Take the time to make your entire gift as well thought out with a gift like this I Love you Dad Journal, which has pages of prompts for you to fill out fondest memories and favourite traits. A Family Membership to Dad’s Favourite Spot $145-195 on respective websites Perhaps even better than sharing your memories, you can gift a membership for any place dad can enjoy his favourite recreational activity to make new memories with him. The Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario both offer memberships that allow admission during regular hours as well as to members-only after-hours events. If dad isn’t the artistic type, the Toronto Zoo also offers memberships with unlimited access, a 10% discount on gifts and meals, and exclusive early access to the new Giant Panda viewing and TIFF members get access to a members lounge, member preview days as well as discounts on workshops, series and camps. Printed Topman Ties $18 at Topman.com Personalize the necktie cliché by grabbing a necktie with personalized patterns. The details on this selection from Topman are small enough that the quirky designs are only discernible from a close up, meaning dad can wear it to the office and still look professional. Project Smoke $17.50 at Indigo With barbecue season coming up, transform your dad into the grill master he always wanted to be.
