Though we’ll all be doing a little guessing on how we’ll be celebrating dad on Father’s Day – one thing you won’t need to guess on is what to get dad for Father’s Day. That’s because we dove into the world of ties and tools and said FORGET IT, and then put together our very own Best Gifts for Father’s Day hit list.
This Toronto-based boutique is a no-brainer when it comes to gifts for the Dad who loves to play bartender or mix up a night cap. From fancy barware and glassware to everything you need to make the perfect drink — think garnishes, bitters, recipe books, and beyond — you can find it at this store.
If you’re looking to do some serious dad spoiling this year, then you’ll want to head straight to the High Rollers Lounge. Think gold Japanese cocktail shakers, seriously gorgeous gold rimmed serving trays and the ultimate gift for the dad who has everything – a champagne saber. That’s right, a SABER. Need we say more? Shop online and have the gift sent straight to dad.
This east-end Toronto fashion curator in Leslieville has an unbeatable selection of unique and timeless gifts you won’t find anywhere else. WARNING: this shop is for the dads with some serious style game. From a classic fedora, to tie-dyed swim trunks, to retro New Balance kicks, they’ve got all the goods to keep dads looking good (including the dad prerequisite assortment of plaid wear!).
Once you’ve got dad in the best threads, get him Zoom camera ready with Good Neighbour’s extensive line of beard grooming accessories. Or, for the dad in need of an at home shave solution (who isn’t with barber shops closed?), we love the Truman Shave Set in Total Orange.
And finally, for the first time dads out there, check out the New Daddy Survival Kit. With its restorative bath oil, ear plugs and sleep mask, this kit has daddy nap time written all over it.
Q for Quinn
Rated as a top Father’s Day Gift for 2020 and 2021 by Motherly, the Matching Family Sock Collection by Q for Quinn is no ordinary sock collection. Designed to be worn mismatched, these socks will put an end to the daily “I CAN’T FIND MY OTHER SOCK” routine that ensues in the morning dash to get ready. Available in cute designs for the whole family like Inside a Robot and Popsicle, these socks are made from organic GOTS cotton and include added rubber grips for safety. The best part? With every 6 pairs ordered, 6 meals are donated to kids in need through Mary’s Meals – so the entire family can look good and feel good with this purchase.
Sweet Flour Bake Shop
Now that we’ve got dad looking good, it’s time to get him feeling good and there’s no better way than with a little sweetness! This year, our Father’s Day Collection has all of dad’s favourites – cookies, cupcakes, cookie cakes – and we’ve even got a special surprise the whole family can enjoy (spoiler alert: it’s our NEW DIY Father’s Day Cookie Cake Kit).
When it comes to dads, we’re pretty big on keeping it simple, like our classic Gift Box of 24 cookies, filled with all kinds of deliciousness like Chocolate Chunk, Almond Toffee Milk Chocolate, and Chocolate Rainbow.
Things get a little fancier with our Father’s Day Cupcakes, 1 dozen chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, each with a decadent vanilla bean filling that no one, dads included, can resist.
But if you’re looking for something a little different, we say go for the kit! Our NEW DIY Father’s Day Cookie Cake Kit is a great gift that everyone can enjoy. The kids are excited to show off their Food Network acquired decorating skills and dads get to sit back and enjoy biting into a giant cookie cake when the decorating is all over.
It’s time to indulge dad this Father’s Day. It’s been a tough year and he deserves to be sipping cocktails in fancy glasses, preferably poolside, celebrating with a cookie cake with his name on it (literally!)
At Sweet Flour, we want to delight you. We want you to experience the warmth of a fresh baked cookie, the joy of a spoonful of cookie dough, the decadence of a creamy filled cupcake or a handcrafted ice cream sandwich. From just because to just married, we believe every moment is worth celebrating. DISCOVER MORE >
