Make Dad’s Day

June 1, 2021

Shop our pop-approved Father’s Day gift guide. —Vita Daily

Gift dad one of the world’s most discerning drinks. The Dalmore‘s 12-year-old Sherry Cask Select ($130 at BC Liquor Stores) is finished in three styles of aged oloroso sherry casks, each providing its own characteristics and flavours. A stunning and elegant single malt bursting with sweet fruit and decadent spice, it’s the perfect present for papa.

Help dad get down to business with Bugatti’s Domus briefcase ($480). With room to store his laptop and everyday essentials, this stylish bag in soft cognac leather will stand the test of time.

They say that all good things come in … triangles? If dad has a sweet tooth, it’s true! Gift him a Bottoms Up candy box ($70) from Sugar Chic, filled with boozy gummies, or build your own premium box ($70) for Father’s Day delivery across Canada.

Nothing makes a happy father like beer. From Stanley Park Brewing, The Captain Hazy IPA makes an ace gift; straw-coloured and super-hazy from the addition of oats and spelt, it boasts a flavour combo of stone fruit and tropical fruit, a soft medium-full body and a smooth finish. Brewed for captains, serve it to dad with a Father’s Day feast of fried chicken and poutine.

Not only does the Dyson Purifier Hot+Cool Formaldehyde ($900) heat and cool the whole of dad’s man cave, it automatically senses, captures and traps pollutants for cleaner air and detects and destroys dangerous formaldehyde.

Add dad to the circular economy with this Fendi Elite Monster Eyes wallet ($400 at Love that Bag etc. while supplies last). Made of forest-green calfskin, this preloved designer piece will ensure all eyes are on him.

Quench his self-care routine with SkinCeuticals’ Hydrating B5 gel ($94 at Project Skin MD). It replenishes the nutrients dad’s skin needs to feel smooth and appear younger, and contains vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid, the body’s natural hydrators, to bind moisture in.

As freedom of travel becomes a reality once more for some, Chopard‘s L.U.C Time Traveler One Black ($20,500) makes a stellar gift for the globetrotting dad, with a new design and lightweight wearability, and produced as a limited edition of 250 pieces.

Fathers are constantly on their feet, so Baby Foot—the foot peel with the cult following—has designed a mint-scented foot exfoliant for men ($25) in larger sizes.

See him swimming in style this summer, with chic shorts from Dior’s latest beachwear capsule.

The Colgate Keep ($19 at London Drugs) lets dad reduce plastic waste in his oral-health routine without sacrificing a healthy smile. Just replace the brush head every three months but “keep” the handle—for life. Londondrugs.com

For man’s best friend, Fendi‘s pet travel line includes this luxe leash ($470) and collar ($360), the latter with a customized leather tag.

Shiseido’s new men’s line is made specifically for dad, with Tsubaki flower extract to help negate skin-cell damage caused specifically by male sex hormones.

It’s funny the thing dads get amped up about, like Wi-Fi. Keep him connected with the Drive Reach ($700) by weBoost, which increases cell signal in vehicles (cars, trucks) for multiple users.

From Plantsome, Gus ($52) is dad’s gateway to plant parenthood, easier to take care of than a pet rock (OK, almost as easy).

Can’t purchase dad a Porsche? Gift him the Porsche Drive experience—a daily or weekly rental service that provides a vehicle (from an iconic 911 to a fam-friendly Cayenne) with concierge delivery and pickup.

If dad’s the kind of guy who leads an intense lifestyle, his skin might suffer the consequences. The new ClarinsMen energizing duo (gel, $52; eye gel, $42) gives stressed-out skin a welcome shot of energy.

Move over mommy-and-mini fashion, it’s time dad got in on the trend. Little Yogi makes swimsuits for daddios and kiddos, including boardshorts, rash guards and one pieces, in cool prints like Little Surfers and Flower Power.

With a sleek two-toned design and shapely silhouette, Michale Kors’ Caspian sneakers ($198) lend a sleek-yet-modern touch to any DOOTD (dad outfit of the day). Crafted from smooth Nappa leather and set on flexible rubber soles, they’re both comfortable and durable so he can sport them all year round.

Sulwhasoo’s Herbal Soap ($50 at Holt Renfrew) is an everyday, anti-aging soap with anti-oxidant rich Korean Red Ginseng and Peony. Made with a 40-day aging process, this mild bar works into a rich and nourishing lather that envelops skin to lift dirt and recapture healthy-looking radiance without stripping the skin.  It is best followed by the global bestseller First Care Activating Serum.
