5 Unique Gifts for Dad This Father's Day

Along with June’s warmer weather comes Father’s Day! One special day of the year when we honour our fathers for all of the early morning sports practices, and late-night study sessions. Break free from the normal routine of new golf balls or a tie and give him something he won’t be expecting! Reinforce your rightful place as the favourite child with one of these unique local gifts this Father’s Day on Sunday, June 19, 2016.

Landscaping Consultation

Give your Dad the inspiration he needs to turn his backyard into the ultimate entertaining space. A landscaping consultation with Candace Mallette Landscape & Garden Design will allow him to test his wildest ideas with a seasoned landscaping professional and set his sights on the most feasible possibilities for his next summer project. To take it a step further, figure out if your Dad needs any new tools to complete his prospective projects!

Brewery Tour and Beer Tasting

Gift your Dad an experience he won’t forget with a Craft Brewery Tour by Brew Donkey. Your Dad will visit some of Ottawa’s best and well-known breweries, and perhaps discover a new favourite brew along the way. Bonus? You can offer to go with him for an afternoon of bonding – and brews! If you want to go a step further to complete the experience, include a Spiegelau Beer Tasting Set with your gift so he can continue to enjoy the brews in style at home. 

Bartender’s Set

No bar area is complete without the right tools. Give your Dad a Bartender’s Gift Set, featuring a stainless steel cocktail shaker by Trudeau, a jigger from Swissmar and a strainer from Danesco, and he will be sure to impress at the next family get-together. Make the set complete with fun drink coasters for the bar top, reading: “Dad’s Beer Goes Here”!

Personal Training Session

Has your Dad been talking about getting back in shape but having trouble getting started? Give him the gentle push he needs with a one-on-one personal training session package from Executive Fitness Leaders. This way he can try it out without having to invest anything upfront himself.

Guided Wine Tasting  

A Guided Wine Tasting with Domaine Perrault will impress any Dad with a particular taste for trying out different wine varieties. With a guided wine tasting, there are options for small, intimate tours as well as options for larger groups – turn the tasting into a fun soirée with friends and family.
