With Father’s Day 3 weeks away, the search for the perfect present is on! That’s why I’ve put together a Father’s Day gift guide featuring different Canadian businesses.
Father’s Day is always a tough one for people. What do you get your dad? Besides the stereotypical tie, my gift guide features some unique finds! Featuring Baarden, Road 102 Designs, Blondie and the Beard and Becker Handmade, your dad won’t be disappointed.
Honestly, these gift ideas are perfect for any person who likes a masculine vibe. And remember, Father’s Day isn’t just to celebrate dads. It’s also for any male role model in your life- uncles, brothers, grandpas, teachers or mentors!
1. Beard Care
Does your dad have a beard? If so, Baarden has you covered! With a wide selection of beard-care products, your dad’s beard will have the nicest one around.
From beard oil to beard balm, Baarden only uses organic carrier oils and butters in them for the best quality. If you’re interested, you can learn more about their ingredients and process on their website!
If Baarden has you intrigued, right now is the perfect opportunity to head to their website and buy.
Why? Because they’re having a massive sale for Father’s Day! Just use code FATHER for 20% off at checkout. But you need to act fast because the code expires after June 16. Head there now before it's over!
Randy, the owner of Road 102 Designs, creates unique cement planters, candle-holders and home decor. If you know a plant dad, this gift is perfect for him!
Randy makes her own moulds and then pours cement into them to produce her beautiful planters. After it is cured, Randy will seal, paint and add gems and gold detailing, which is a 2-day process. Wow!
Father’s Day is the perfect time to show your appreciation to the father-figures in your life. What better way than with a thoughtfully crafted planter?
Head to Randy’s Etsy store to pick one up before it’s too late!
3. Custom Pen
Located in Barrie, Ontario, the wife and husband team from Blondie and the Beard creates the most beautiful handmade pens! This gift is perfect if your dad writes a lot.
Now, every time he picks up his pen, he’ll think about your kind gesture!
Blondie and the Beard post many behind the scenes photos on their Instagram account if you’re curious about how they make their pens. Each pen is handcrafted from locally sourced wood right in their garage! They also make custom magnifying glasses and letter openers.
With so many unique patterns and designs, there is sure to be a pen that suits your dad’s personality. If you’re interested, browse through their full collection on their Etsy shop.
4. Bow Tie
If you know me, then you know that I have a serious obsession with hair bows. If your father is into bow ties like I am with hair bows, Becker Handmade is the store for you!
Joel’s bow ties are made from fabric that’s internationally-sourced, and some are even repurposed from discarded neckties!
With so many unique patterns, it’s so hard to choose. If your dad loves to dress in style, a bow tie is the perfect Father’s Day gift.
5. Handmade card
No gift is complete without a handmade card. Because you can write a personal message inside, it brings a thoughtful gift to the next level!
Each card has been thoughtfully put together by hand, by me, so no two cards are the same- even if the design is! With these cards, I used darker colours, so it’s a bit more masculine than my usual card aesthetic. Check out my Instagram page for some work in progress pictures- my design has dramatically changed since then!
I also have some older card designs that could also work for Father’s Day, but it’s a bit more subtle. The Journey to Home and Keys to Nature cards are some of my personal favourites. Check out the cards that I mention by clicking their names!
And those are my top 5 gift recommendations for Father’s Day. I wish you luck on the search for that perfect present!
