Father’s Day is this Sunday.  Don’t panic, we’ve got you covered with some great last minute gift ideas for dear old Dad.

1  Stop by Habit Coffee and pick up a bag of hand-roasted whole bean coffee for Dad (340g for $15-$16).  The perfect treat to go with morning crosswords and his #1 Dad mug (circa 1987).  Bonus –  buy beans on a Friday and you get a free cup of French Press coffee for yourself, because it’s hard work being Dad’s favourite.  – Find Habit Coffee at 552 Pandora Ave. or 808 Yates St., Victoria BC.

If the man’s looking a little grizzly these days, book him in for a Classic Hot Lather Shave ($45) at Victory Barber & Brand, because sometimes Dad needs pampering too.  – Find Victory Barber & Brand at 1315 Blanshard St., Victoria BC.

3  Dad likes beer, right?  Head over to Phillips Brewing Company and fill up a Growler with his favourite brew.  Add a little style with a custom Smoking Lily Growler backpack ($30) for those Growler-on-the-go days.  It’s just $5 for the 1.9L bottle (his to keep!) and $10 for every fill. – Find Phillips at 2010 Government St., Victoria BC.

4  If you really want to show the man that raised you right just how much you love him, hop in the car Sunday morning and take a little road trip to Qualicum Beach for the 20th Anniversary Father’s Day Show & Shine.  With over 600 cars including custom models, antiques, classics, hot-rods, muscle cars, and motorcycles it’ll be a Father’s Day he won’t soon forget. – Find the Show & Shine in downtown Qualicum Beach…and since Dad won’t ask for directions we suggest you bring along your smartphone.

Love you, Dad.
