Father's Day gift ideas

By: Cindy Jacobelli

Dads can be funny characters. If you ask them straight out what they’d like for any given occasion, they usually answer in a non-committal and far from helpful way. Perhaps it’s playfulness. Perhaps it’s sincere uncertainty. Either way – it can make shopping for these special guys a challenge. But never fear! There are fantastic options out there. From small and humorous to big and bold, here are some Father’s Day gift ideas to get you started.

Vintage decor for the home office
Whether it’s the corner office or the home office, Dad probably spends a lot of his time working and not thinking about the look of his surroundings. Help him make the space as warm as it is productive, with these vintage brass hourglasses. Restoration Hardware, $209 - $249. giftguide-fathersday-book.jpg

Vintage prints
Although Dad’s probably had a hand in decorating the house or decorating ideas, chances are, he’s not left a defining mark in the process. This vintage print gives him a chance to put a stamp on at least one room. It’s masculine, with soft colours that are more likely to blend with everything around it. Etsy, $60 USD. giftguide-fathersday-tag.jpg Leather bag tag
Sometimes the little things that bring a smile to your face make the best Father's Day gifts. If Dad’s on the road a lot, this simple, yet stylish tag will help his bags stand out from the crowd. Owen and Fred, $22. giftguide-fathersday-aporan.jpg
'His' very own apron
If Dad loves to spend summer nights and weekends manning the grill, then an apron is a thoughtful (and practical!) gift. It may not be the most exotic of Father’s Day gifts … but it’s definitely one he can call 'His'.
Layla Grayce, $80.
