6 Father’s Day Gift Ideas


At Jux-ta-Pose on Bloor St.

We already covered what card to get dad for Father’s Day — a bacon-scented card made from barley, of course! And here’s the perfect pen for signing that card or to give to the pen-collecting dad in your family.

So what else to get dad? Well he seems to like puttering around in the wood shop so he must like all things wooden, right? How about anyone of of these Henderson Dry Goods products made in B.C.


Available at Brika and Spruce.

Or how about the token father’s day mug with a not-so-kitsch twist, also made in B.C.?

Of course you’ll want to fill that mug with some specialty coffee. I’m loving the Support Ontario campaign at Whole Foods right now. After reading about your local roasters on the display cards, you’ll definitely want to support them by trying a local roast.

And what else makes a great morning but a smooth shave. Why not give this cute, I mean manly, Savon Du Bois shave set (made in Port Perry, Ontario) to encourage dad to get rid of his playoff beard? Combined with the Barnswallow Pottery shave mug (made in Maine), this gift makes the perfect all natural shaving kit.

And if that doesn’t motivate him, this razor definitely will! The simple ergonomics on the Bolin-Webb R1-S razor made in the UK just makes you want to pick it up and give it a try. Available at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) and Ma-Zone.
