Father’s Day is coming up on June 19th and now that we’re all finally hanging in person, finding the perfect gift for dad has a little more added pressure when you can no longer hide behind your Zoom screen and blame the wrong colour on Amazon. But DO NOT start panic shopping for Father’s Day – 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 rose gold mixing pitchers 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, and even giant cookie cakes! Don’t forget, we offer express delivery across the Greater Toronto Area and Canada, so no matter how near or far you are to dad, we’ve got you covered.–
When it comes to the best gifts for dads, we’re pretty big on keeping it simple, like our classic Gift Box of 24 cookies, filled with all kinds of deliciousness (see below for all the tempting flavours). Make it extra special and add a Happy Father's Day decorated cookie.

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. Our Father’s Day cupcakes are available for delivery in the Greater Toronto Area only.
If you’re looking to make a BIG impression this Father;s Day, we say go for our giant cookie cake! Select dad's favourite cookie flavour from any of our signature varieties and have it decorated with your own personal message.
Each personalized cookie cake comes in either an 8 or 12 inch diameter and bakes up to 1 inch high. Having the whole gang over to celebrate? The 12 inch cookie serves approximately 8-10 people. Just you, dad and a few chosen others? The 8 inch cookie cakes serves a smaller group of about 4 to 6 people.
It’s time to indulge dad this Father’s Day. Up your gifting game and have dad sipping cocktails in fancy glasses, preferably poolside, celebrating with a giant cookie cake with his name on it (literally!)
