Let’s face it, life as we know it is no longer… but that doesn’t mean Dad doesn’t still deserve a little something to make him feel appreciated this Father’s Day. As lifestyles have changed due to COVID-19, people have adapted and social distancing measures have been put in place, local businesses need your help now more than ever… and no doubt that budgets have changed for many too. While oddly, despite spending more time at home, it seems like work days just keep getting longer… so who has time to shop?
So instead of focusing on all the flashy latest gifts you can give Dad this year (like the latest tech and more), we focused on a roundup of some of the best last minute gift guides that are perfect for any dad, to either giveback, support the community, or that won’t break the bank…all while making sure he feels special too. Because we’ve all been picking up a little more slack these days.
Here’s our Father’s Day Gift Ideas that are approved for the new COVID-19 lifestyle:
Bulldog Skincare for Men
There’s no denying that we could also use a little more TLC in the grooming department these days and if dad’s growing a beard, he’s likely looking a little scruffier than normal these days… in comes Bulldog, with a variety of skincare and grooming products to fit every need. Why not curate a selection of their products for dad and show him you care. 😉 #BrowniePoints$16-35.00 CAD at Amazon

The key = make sure you order a case, because we guarantee he’s going to want more from where that came from. 😉$52.80 at Two Sisters Vineyards
If dad’s been on a health kick in quarantine, he’ll definitely be thanking you for time to come. Whether you take the plunge and get him the bike, or just a subscription to the app… we’re sure he will be thanking you either way. The best part is, as of June 2, the Peloton App is now available on Apple TV, making Peloton’s fitness content more accessible to even more people.from $12.99/m at Peloton
Tequila Don Julio 1942
Our editor often says, he believe that Tequila is the whisky of the new generation. This outstanding tequila by Don Julio, the 1942, solidifies just that. The 1942 pays homage to the year Don Julio González began his tequila-making journey. Produced in small batches and aged for a minimum of two and a half years. Bright golden amber colour; the bouquet is filled with notes of caramel, chocolate and flavours of toasty oak, vanilla and cooked agave; with a long lingering finish. The perfect addition to any enthusiast’s bar.$236.95 at LCBO
