Father’s Day isn’t just a day for dads, it’s a day to honour dads, step-dads, grandfathers and all men who act as a father figure in your life. With every year that passes, it can be difficult to figure out what to get him and let’s face it- gifts start to get a bit predictable. On Sunday, June 18, impress your father with one of these local gifts that are thoughtful and most importantly, ones he will never guess!


Warren Chase Dog Tag Gift Certificates

For the man who knows the importance grooming plays in their lives. It’s not just mom who needs a day at the spa! The Warren Chase Urban Retreat for Men has the perfect gift certificate dog tags that give dad/granddad the opportunity to get himself cleaned up for that special Father’s Day dinner. Help dad kick back, have a drink, get a haircut, and enjoy a massage.


Timber Watches

Dad might already have a watch, but does he have a watch made from sustainable bamboo? These lightweight watches are guaranteed to be a conversation starter with friends and family. Matt and Rob, founders at TimberWatches, were tired of searching for affordable and high-quality wood watches, so they started producing their own right here in Ottawa, ON.  Every TimberWatch comes with a bamboo gift box making the perfect gift solution!


Local Craft Beer Gratitude Pack

Is dad a beer lover? This beer carrier just might do the trick for his next BBQ, time spent with buddies or out in the garage. This gift includes beer from one of Ottawa's local craft breweries which you can customize with dads favourite Ottawa craft beers! It also comes with this locally handmade, walnut stained carrier which is a great keepsake for future parties and backyard gatherings.  Ottawa Gift Baskets has thought of everything to make this gift extra special.


Get Daddy Back to the Gym!

Has dad been talking about getting back to the gym but has no idea which gym to chose or where to start? You can help take the guess work out of it by providing him with a mini Heath Assessment & Personal Training session from Executive Fitness Leaders. Now he doesn’t have to worry about where to start.


A Quest in Time

For when you have a dad who love puzzles or pointing out every historical fact in the city. Get the family together for some quality time of Father’s Day. This clue package will lead the way as 'players' solve puzzles and see interesting sights.  When he opens his gift card from UrbanQuest, he’ll be ready to solve puzzles and discover where each clue will take him next! 


Helicopter Tour – Ottawa

Some dads are always talking about the planes flying overhead! This is a unique opportunity to take him up above Ottawa on a helicopter ride of a lifetime provided by Heli-Tremblant! Your dad will be able to snap pictures of the Ottawa River, Gatineau city (on the climb to the Casino) and spot all the Ottawa attractions in the downtown core! Want to take him somewhere a bit different than Ottawa? Heli-Tremblant also offers tour of Mont-Tremblant.
