Every Father’s Day, I start off intending to find personal and thoughtful gifts, and then, once the date approaches, I give up and buy something more practical like fancy electronics or top-shelf alcohol. It can be tricky to find just the right present.
But, after the year we’ve had, I’m definitely ready to change things up a little, and spoil the dads in my life with extra thoughtful and creative finds this Father’s Day. Power tools and cologne sets are great and all, but I have a feeling that it’s the more personal, curated gifts that will really resonate this time around.
Depending on whom you’re shopping for, that could mean a chore coat with a lifetime warranty, an artisanal gin-making kit or even a custom-built box of truffles — here are a dozen great Father’s Day gift ideas, all from local businesses and crafted with care in Canada.
