When is Father’s Day? Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16th. Father’s Day celebrations are easy. No really! All about giving the leading man in your life the day off, as long as it starts there, you’re already ahead. Taking over his chore list, hanging out in the backyard, taking a day trip to one of his favourite places or restaurants, or just catching the game together, the time you spend connecting (while he takes a load off) is sure to be appreciated. But when it comes to Father’s Day gift Ideas, things can get a bit trickier. Dads are notoriously hard to buy for, especially when it seems like he already has everything. That’s why we’ve come up with a few Father’s Day ideas to get you started! Based on his interests, all you need are a few hints or observations and you’ll be set. Then shop the best gifts for him if he’s a music-lover, adventurer, has everything, or is celebrating his first Father’s Day. Alternatively, you can make new memories together by giving him an experience he’ll never forget!

If He Loves Music… If your dad loves turning the volume up to 11, then music, audio equipment, and books on his favourite bands or from his favourite artists can be a great Father’s Day gift. For dads who like to rock out at the dock, we carry a fantastic selection of portable, wireless speakers that pack serious sound no matter the size. If you don’t want to listen to his dad rock at home, or he wants to bring his favourite tunes with him to the gym, you can power his workout for hours with headphones. If he’s serious about sound, investing in vinyl for at-home could be the way to go. Crosley record players combine old-school character with current demands for size and space, without sacrificing sound. Plus, you can get him a record he loves, with a full selection of albums from classic rock to jazz and hip-hop available in our Record Shop. If you know his favourite bands, are sure about a specific genre, or just want to celebrate his love of music in general, then you can also find books that will have him lighting up in our Record Shop, or by searching Entertainment books.

If He Is An Adventurer… Some dads love the great outdoors, and can’t wait to get outside, no matter the weather. If this sounds like your dad we have you covered with a few Father’s Day gift ideas for the outdoorsman…or if his style tends to be a little more on the granola side. A great new backpack can be as fashionable as it is functional, for weekend trips or days at work. Water bottles can keep him hydrated when running the trails, or looking to make the next train. Sunglasses make trips in the wilderness sun-safe without sacrificing style. And we have a great selection of books that will sharpen his outdoor skills, or continue his reign as king of the grill.

If He Has Everything… Being a dad can be serious business, but on his first Father’s Day, getting sentimental can help put things in perspective, while you say thanks for the backup. Pairing a picture and a frame is a great way to give him a gift he’ll always remember from his first year.

If He Has Everything… What to get the man who has everything? It’s never easy! But we have a few Father’s Day gift ideas worth trying. If he’s a culinary whiz, then whipping him up something for the kitchen could be a way to set his day apart. Le Creuset dishes that go from oven to table, SMEG appliances that make everyday activities look good, and coffee makers from Nespresso, Bodum, Fellow, and more can take his chef’s game to the next level.

A little tech can go a long way, and Fitbits for the active dad can help him keep his health goals in check. Home assistants from Google, Nest, and Philips connect him to areas of the home he loves even further. For playful moments, or rediscovering his creative side, instant photography cameras and film from Polaroid, and Fujifilm are fun gifts to give.

The stylish Dad can always appreciate a new accessory whether it’s a laptop case, wallet, watch, or hat. Serving as a wardrobe update, or conversation started.

For a memorable Father’s Day gift, getting out of an everyday routine and enjoying time set apart for you to be together could be the greatest gift of all.
