With many retail stores open and patios reopening this weekend, it’s the perfect time to celebrate the dad in your life. Here are five gift ideas for every type of dad out there:
For the cigar aficionado
Celebrate dad with a freshly rolled cigar from Village Cigar Co. This month, they’re featuring the award-winning Flor de las Antillas from My Father Cigars at a special price. Village Cigar Co is also reopening their barbering services this Friday so if, after three months in quarantine, your dad is starting to look like Tom Hanks in Castaway (and, really, aren’t we all?), treat him to a good old fashioned hot shave and haircut.
For the active dad
If your dad is the type who starts his day with a 5 a.m. run or bike ride, hook him up with new gear from The Running Room or Racer Sportif. These specialty retailers offer everything from apparel and equipment to nutritional supplements, hydration systems and more.
For the foodie
If the key to your dad’s heart is through his taste buds, spoil him with a gourmet meal for Father’s Day. Order takeout or enjoy your meal together on a patio. Click here for a list of patios that will be open as of Friday, June 19.
For the trendsetter
A classic gift like a tie, belt or socks is always a good bet for the dad who likes to show up in style. Art Lee Menswear, Burrows and Burrows Too offer a selection of designer collections you can’t find anywhere else, making them great go-tos for Father’s Day accessory shopping.
For the coffee connoisseur
If your dad loves his caffeine, help him level up his morning cup of joe with a Chemex coffee brewer and freshly ground coffee from local favourite Tribeca Coffee Co.
