And then maybe enjoy a glass of this lovely wine on the deck and illuminate the night with this Hiking Trail candle from Coal and Canary. This candle’s wide wooden wick burns clean and produces a soft crackle when lit, which makes it sound like a tiny campfire. $30.

For the practical man who still appreciates a little everyday luxury, this Urban shave soap set by Inspired Soap Works Limited is made with olive oil, shea and cocoa butter, and scented with crisp clean essential oils (lemon, tea tree, juniper).  It’s a great way to start the day, and easy on the pocketbook at $15.95 through the One of a Kind Online Shop.



Let comfort and style define this Father’s Day with Bogs‘ signature quality in the Hudson Webbing Sandal. Lightweight and durable, the Hudson will be his go-to footwear all summer long.  Built with Bogs’ H2O grip, these sandals have great traction on wet surfaces.  They also come with some fun facts: they are made of durable neoprene and won’t compress with wear.  Built right into the shoe is the DuraFresh anti-odour system, a permanent anti-odour bio-technology that eats sweat before it gets bacterial (aka smelly).  DuraFresh is made from dirt from Alberta, which is then shipped to the factory in Texas.  A sweat-eating sandal.  Who’d a thunk it?  $50.


Feel like a splurge that’s kind of like a gift for you too?  Bugaboo’s latest collaboration with Diesel is edgy enough for dad and perfect for baby too.


And of course, there is more than one way to splurge.  Indulge your favourite father with the gift of relaxation, serenity, health and/or sanity, depending on wherever the man is at.  Toronto Yoga Mamas is offering FREE yoga to Dads and Dads-To-Be for the whole month of June. Which means that the absolute best time to wish him a happy Father’s Day is right now, to get the most of this offer and the month of June. Happy Father’s Day!
