Tired of getting your Dad the same ‘ol Father’s Day gifts? We’ve put together a list of some last minute gift ideas of some fun items & activities to show Dad how much you really care this Father’s Day, Sunday June 17th. (even though you did save it for the last minute 😉.
The Dapper Dad
We want dad to always look good and if we know the modern day man, we know he can never have enough funky pocket squares, ties & socks. Check out these fun, curated gift boxes & men’s accessories from Custom Suits Toronto. You can get a Father’s Day gift box for only $49 which includes a tie, a pocket square & a pair of socks.
The Action Junky Dad
Does your dad love sports cars, but just can’t make sense of getting himself one? Well there’s a way to get his fix without trading in the minivan. The Porsche Track Experience is the ultimate gift this Father’s Day for all car enthusiasts and driving aficianodos. They have different options for varying skill levels and the goal is to drive the car to their full potential with precision.

The Aquatic Dad
When was the last time you spent some quality time with dad while enjoying the stunning scenic views of Toronto’s iconic skyline? This Father’s Day treat him like a captain and enjoy an afternoon brunch or evening dinner with delicious culinary offerings paired with a selection of beer, wine and specialty cocktails aboard Mariposa Cruises. Tickets range from $62.95-$78.95 for adults and $32.97-$47.27 for children between the ages of 4-12. (kids under 3 are free). To book or for more info, check out the website.
The Foodie Dad
Now I know the BBQ is a sacred domain for any dad, but this is the one day he’s aloud to take a break from the grill. Why not treat Dad for an authentic Southern-style BBQ experience that’s sure to get his stamp of approval. A Southern gentleman cherishes local food and traditions passed down through generations so show him some Southern hospitality this Father’s Day and grab a catered Uncle Smoke Cookhouse Signature Sandwich Platter for the whole family to enjoy. They offer an assortment of classic BBQ sandwiches including Angus beef, fried chicken, pulled pork, pulled chicken, and smoked bacon.
The Dad that Needs Relaxin’
We know he’s not going to admit it, but sometimes Dad just needs a little push to get that sore back treated. “Walking it off” sometimes won’t cut it and while many people see massage as an indulgence, the physical and mental health benefits are exceptional. Since June is also Men’s Health Month, it’s the perfect time for dad’s who are skeptical to try out the sports massage – a no-nonsense massage that aims to stretch tight muscles, stimulate inactive muscles and improve soft tissue conditions. If you’re feeling super giving, throw in the men’s facial, targeted to erase razor irritation, provide deep pore cleansing and toning. Let’s face it, this is something he would never treat himself to, but we promise he will thank you after. Massages and facials start at $69.95. Check out their site for to find the your nearest location.
The Chef Dad
While your dad might have a pretty good grip on grilling, a gourmet barbeque class is his chance to take his game to the next level. Covering everything from brining, rubs and mop sauces, your father will learn how to perfect his steak, chicken, pork and even vegetables to while getting extra tips and tricks from an award-winning chef and pit master. Relish your time together as you ketchup over some delicious barbecue cooking. The class is $149 and you book it here.
Whatever you decide to do, let’s show dad how much we care about him this Father’s Day and most importantly create lasting memories he can cherish for years. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there and we hope you enjoy it with loved ones, great food and memorable experiences.
