Father’s Day Gift Guide Toronto
Did you know that Mother’s Day is the second biggest spending holiday after Christmas? That doesn’t sound fair to Dad. Let’s make him feel special with these gorgeous gifts.
If he loves music:
Buy him a pair of Urbanears headphones. We love the Plattan model, a classic headphone available in a multitude of colours. From $70 at Sonic Boom. 782 Bathurst St., Toronto, 416-532-0334, www.sonicboommusic.com
If he loves making pancakes:
Noble Tonic 01 Tuthilltown Bourbon Barrel Matured Maple Syrup. The best looking maple syrup we’ve seen to date. Oh yes, and it tastes good, too. $24.95 online at www.mikuniwildharvest.com
If he loves his shoes:
He will probably love taking care of them, too. This Izola shoe brush will keep his loafers shining. Just make sure you’re not the one shining them for him. $ at La Merceria, 506 Adelaide St. W., Toronto, 416-848-0057.
If he loves his backyard:
Then this hammock is the ultimate way to enjoy it. String it between two trees, or buy the stand, too. He will also benefit from the extra daughter visits; you’ll need to test it out for him a few times, right? Double rope hammock, $69.99, and stand, $129.99, both from Canadian Tire. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
