Marketplace: Father’s Day Gift Ideas

This Sunday is Father’s Day. Does this mean that you’ll be spoiling your dad with a crafty¬†tie greeting card or¬†golf accessories? I’ve given my dad a variety of gifts over the years, some of which I rounded up in this post (just in case you’re looking for a last-minute gift idea). I’ve been a student forever, so naturally my¬†Dad has a collection of university t-shirts, sweatshirts, and mugs from a variety of Ontario universities. It’s¬†been a really convenient gift to buy since I¬†could shop in between classes. Luckily, dad loves them (or pretends to) and wears them all the time.

My dad seems to like anything that has the¬†letter “B”¬†on it (to match his first name, of course).¬†Because of this,¬†I’ve given him loads of “B” presents like the ones below (though not necessarily in white – my dad likes colour).

Another go-to gift idea for the B-man is wine. Red. Any brand, price point, and country of origin will do.

A final successful go-to gift for my dad has been anything and everything related to the BBQ.

I know my dad is reading this post, so I can’t reveal what he’s going to get this year. Hint – it’s something from the list above! Why ruin a good thing, right?

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Father’s Day to those who celebrate!
