Father’s Day is June 20…and while much fuss is made about mom every year, dad deserves his special day too! To celebrate the world’s greatest dad, think about his hobbies and interests and be sure to plan ahead to make this a day he’ll remember! These 11 unique gift ideas will suit every taste and budget.

  • BBQ party. Give the master BBQer a break—let him relax and have mom and the older kids take over the grilling duties. Cool new barbecue tools he can use all summer long are a great gift idea—see Flyerland.ca and the Certified BBQ Experts for delicious deals.
  • Hit the links. For dads who love to golf, give a day on the course, or get together with friends and plan an outing for all the dads. If there’s a particular new club he wants or some new golf attire, swing over to Flyerland.ca where you’ll find super savings from SportChek.
  • Go fishin’. Dad will be hooked with a wide range of gift ideas for fishing, water sports and enjoying the great outdoors. Catch all the best deals with the Bass Pro Shop flyer on Flyerland.ca.
  • Extreme gifts. If dad loves adventure, treat him to the thrill and excitement of a helicopter ride, skydiving, white water rafting, driving a race car and more. Visit Flyerland.ca and check out the Life Experiences.ca flyer for the ultimate in gift giving.
  • Picture perfect. Favourite pics of mom and the kids make a thoughtful gift and are even better when pasted on a mug, calendar or in a special photo frame—see the Black’s flyer on Flyerland.ca for even more ideas. Or create a slide show for his screensaver featuring fun family photos.
  • Personalized coupon book. Dads appreciate a little help around the house, so design a personalized book of coupons for washing his car, cutting the lawn, cleaning out the garage—just use your imagination!
  • Make a day of it! Plan a family outing to local attractions such as the Hockey Hall of Fame, Niagara Falls, comedy shows and more fun events—see Flyerland.ca for lots of special deals.
  • Gifts from little hands. Homemade gifts for his office, workshop or rec room like paperweights, picture frames or decorated boxes to organize his stuff are gifts from the heart dad will love. Check out the Wal-mart or Zellers flyer on Flyerland.ca and save.
  • Handyman help. If dad has been thinking about building a deck or finishing the basement, give him a gift the whole family can enjoy! See flyers from the Handyman Connection, Home Depot and DIY Tools on Flyerland.ca for extra savings. 
  • Practice makes perfect. Does dad want to perfect his golf swing, better his backhand or finally learn to play the guitar? Lessons for his favourite hobbies are gifts that will keep on giving.
  • Dinner for…the family! Treat dad to a meal at his favourite restaurant with the whole gang. Or make dinner at home and make it even more festive with cards and a special cake from Baskin Robbins for the “World’s Best Dad”.
