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.
2 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.
