Put dad or granddad in the spotlight with a framed photo of him with the kids.

Perfect for putting on his desk at work or at home, he'll treasure special memories and love this personal gift.

Choose a classic dark wood frame with insert or buy him a digital frame which will play pictures of his adoraable family throughout the day.

Perfect for gadget lovers, and you can continually upload photos so dad can see what you're up to while he's still at work!

This 10 inch digital picture frame takes just a minute to set up so is perfect for even the least digital-savvy amongst us!


We usually think of giving flowers on Mother’s Day, but lots of men love to receive flowers, too.

For Father’s Day, choose flowers with a more masculine monochromatic palette in deep blues, whites or purples.

Dendrobium orchid bouquets in white or purple are perfect for men, or a bunch of bright sunflowers make the perfect Father's Day bouquets.

Lots of men also appreciate strong tropical flowers like calla lilies or birds of paradise with their quirky exotice appearance.

Large coffee mugs like these funky ceramics make great containers for flower arrangements and give him something to use after the flowers are gone.


The way to a man's heart is through his stomach they say.

And dads love to get their favourite foods for Father’s Day.

Surprise him with a bouquet of chocolate bars instead of flowers, or a hamper of his favourite beer and snacks.

Many dads will be more than happy with a meal out, take away or a homecooked meal with their favourite people too.

Treating him doesn't need to cost a fortune!

If the man you're buying for loves ot barbecue, buy him a new set of barbecue tools or a fun apron, stock the fridge and let him loose on the grill.

Gift Baskets

A gift basket is such a versatile gift, especially if you make your own.

Include a variety ofitems you know he loves, and some new things to try, all in one special package wrapped up with love. 

Gift baskets can include foods, coffee, beer, wine, gift certificates, and anything else that the man in your life might like.

The best gift baskets have themes, such as for the gardener, the grill king, the sports fan or the outdoor man gift basket pictured below.

You know your dad or partner best, but a few themes to consider are:

• Movie Night
• Beers from Around the World
• Favourite Snack Foods
• Gourmet Popcorn
• Gourmet Nuts

You can purchase premade gift baskets or put one together yourself using a creative theme and container.

There is no end to the baskets, buckets, crates or vintage containers you can find.

He’ll be sure to enjoy uncovering all the fun items you give him!

DIY Gifts

While store bought gifts are always an option, there’s nothing more personal than something handmade by your child for a special dad.

These one of a kind gifts will warm his heart and let him know just how much you love him and think about him.

Handprint crafts are perfect for capturing a moment in time, or you could make a coupon book or scrapbook of memories.

Finally, never underestimate the gift of time.

A family day out or time spent together is priceless, so head out for a long walk, go on a day out, go to the movies or a sports event, or just spend some time in the park with a football and a picnic.

If you can't manage this on the actual day, place the tickets or plans for the day out in his Father’s Day card.

If you have a big family with many dads, you could consider hosting a Father’s Day Brunch.

Invite the extended family over for a brunch featuring everyone's favourite brunch dishes.
