Father’s Day 2022: Gifts For Every Father Figure In Your Life

Fathering Day aka Father’s Day is just around the corner (June 19th this year). That’s right, we are helping to reclaim the day for all the father figures in our lives. Fathering Day is all about celebrating not just our biological dads but also the other men who have raised us, shaped us, and taken care of us throughout our lives. It could be a family friend, a guncle, a coach, or even a mentor.

But what to gift them? Not to worry, we have got you covered with all the best gifts for all the coolest father figures on your list this year.

ABOVE: Away’s sleek aluminum suitcase

Gifts for the adventurous guy
One of the keys to successful adventures and travel is a great suitcase. Perhaps it’s time to upgrade Dad with an Away suitcase? We love the sleek aluminum collection; perfect for the father who also sees himself as a secret agent. With gas prices on the rise, gift him a train ticket; The Maritime route with VIA Rail promises beautiful scenery and coastal adventures. And if you want to gift him some true adventure, book him in for a trip to Ski Country Colorado. Whether he travels in summer or winter, there is adventure in Colorado year round.

ABOVE: The Spirit Gas Grill from Weber

Gifts for the backyard griller
The hottest father’s day gift this year (pun intended) just might be the Spirit Gas Grill from Weber. The three-burner Spirit SP-335 gas grill is equipped with everything you need to grill an entire meal outside. Simmer sauce on the side burner. Create an intense heat zone for a perfectly seared steak on the sear station. And be sure to add in the ultimate barbecue apron from Lee Valley. Or if Dad is more about the chill backyard life,  gift him a high end cooler to keep their drinks nice and chilled. Yeti is world renown for making top of the line coolers, the Tundra 45 Hard Cooler is the perfect size and comes in four different colours. It is sure to make backyard dad happy this Fathering Day.

Gifts for the amateur mixologist
If grandpa taught you the importance of a proper made cocktail, we have the perfect gift gift for him. Stop by Cocktail Emporium and pick him up a great Japanese cocktail shaker or some vintage glassware. Or perhaps gift him the gift of knowledge (cocktail knowledge) with a virtual cocktail making class from 180 Drinks. You can choose from group or individual zoom classes. And they even can put together a custom cocktail making kit for him. Or perhaps, just stock up his home bar with some of the best booze out there –  some Crown Royal and Laneway Gin?

Gifts for the guy on the run
For the man who loves a daily run, may we suggest upgrading their running gear to the latest from Forward With Design. This Canadian brand might be the new player in the market but their seamless training tee and 7″ lined shorts are instant classics. With lightweight, quick-drying, moisture wicking, and even made with recycled materials, what more could a man on the run ask for? Or maybe a running shoe upgrade? Gift him a pair of the AllBirds Tree Flyers running shoes. This lightweight shoe provides amazing stability and breathability to help him go faster and further. Plus we think it just looks cool in the colour ways offered.

ABOVE: The Ray from Sonos

Gifts for the tech savvy dad
The latest from Sonos is the Ray, a compact yet impressive soundbar with new innovations that deliver incredibly balanced sound that’s perfect for smaller spaces. The SONOS Ray delivers impressive sound tuned to perfection; enjoying movies at home just got better. Or if you have a creative techie on your list, we recommend the latest tablet from Samsung: The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. This smart tablet features everything you would expect plus it allows the user to write, sketch, doodle or draw their wildest ideas into reality with the ultra-low latency S Pen. You will surely get bonus points for creativity with this Fathering Day gift.

Gifts for the foodie dad

This Italian mecca of food and fabulousness has the best of Italy to enjoy in the comfort of home. Eataly Toronto has even curated a variety of gift boxes with themes like authentic Italian cooking staples, or the perfect Father’s Day feast. The way to his heart is through his stomach.

This beautifully designed 12-cup capacity drip coffee maker ensures the ideal time and temperature setting for brewing the highest-quality coffee. Plus it’s stunning on a countertop. Finally, you can’t go wrong with the Always Pan as the perfect foodie father gift. This pan has taken the cooking world by storm with its innovative approach to cookware and its great range of colours. We recommend the all new cast iron always pan in blue salt.

Gifts for the well groomed
Every well groomed guncle either rocks a clean shaven face or the perfect amount of stubble. Either way, they need a great shaver. So why not gift them the newest Philips Shaver S9000? Philips’ most advanced shaver to-date, with built-in AI, the S9000 delivers a truly personalized shave and enhanced skin comfort, thanks to SkinIQ technology, the latest cutting-edge innovation that adapts to each individual skin and hair types, for healthy looking skin.Or may we suggest a great fragrance like Paco Rabanne Invictus Platinum for the fathers in your life that like a woody aromatic fragrance. Or Prada Luna Rossa Ocean for those who prefer a cocktail of citrus combined with a lively duo of lavender and sage. It is fresh, clean sensation yet sensual and sexy. Finally, any well groomed guncle would appreciate the gift of manscaped.
