Here are some grooming & skin care products for men:

  • Shaving cream;
  • after-shave lotion;
  • razors;
  • deodorant;
  • shower gel;
  • shampoo;
  • lotion;
  • sunscreen lotion;
  • foot file or pumice stone;

  • and/or foot cream.

2. A Fun Box With His Favourite Snacks.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve caught my husband sneaking a bag of Mini Ritz to his office. Or finding out that he has a secret stash of peanuts in his drawer!

Who ever thought something so simple could bring so much joy to men? They like to have fun too! So, take this opportunity to please your dad’s or husband’s palate with a box of his favorite snacks.

Organize a mini-reunion with your children and do a brainstorm of dad’s favorite snacks. Ask yourself if he has a sweet tooth, or if he’s more into salty snacks? Then, make a list of the snacks you’ll buy. Finally, place them in a cool box or basket along with a thoughtful note. He’ll be so pleased!

3. A Mini Home Office Revamp

Does your dad or husband spend endless hours working from home—sit on his chair? I get you. Ever since my husband started working remotely, it seems that he’s glued to it. So, It’s time to encourage him to move more, for sure. But it’s also a great idea to add extra comfort to his days!

If you also think that your dad’s (or husband’s) working space can get comfier, this is the perfect time do it. That said, you can give him a comfy chair, a better lighting, a bigger desk, or a new carpet to keep his feet warm during chilly days.

And if you want to make his office look cooler, you can help him select his favorite pictures, posters, or souvenirs, and decorate the wall he shows when taking Zoom calls. It will show his unique personality!

4. Supplies for His Favorite Hobby

There are endless hobbies dads enjoy getting lost in for hours. For instance, I remember my dad enjoyed playing his guitar during the weekend. And my husband, for example, enjoys working on his 3D printed models whenever he has time.

So this Father’s Day, surprise dad with a few supplies for his favorite hobby, along with a coupon to spend time on it. You’ll be giving him a double treat!

If you’re down with this idea, take a few minutes to think of dad’s favorite hobbies and plan a day to order his gift online or visit to a specialty store.

Let his creativity flow this Father’s Day, he’ll love it!

From a simple heartfelt letter, a cake, a drawing of his favorite Marvel character, a potted plant for his revamped office, a personalized frame, to delicious homemade cookies. These are simple, inexpensive, and unique ideas that will melt his heart.

That being said, use your unique talent to create a special gift for dad!

Now, let’s take a look at when is Father’s Day celebrated in Canada.

When is Father’s Day in Canada?

In Canada, Father’s Day (Fête des Pères in French) is celebrated on the third Sunday of June (Source: Wikipedia). Although it’s not a public holiday, it’s a special day when Canadians honor the many fathers who care for and educate their children (Source: Government of Canada). People use this day to spend quality time with their fathers or father figures, highlighting the important role they play in nurturing, teaching, and enjoying time with their children.

“…on Father’s Day we thank all fathers, in Canada and abroad, for embracing their place in the lives of their children, and understanding that no responsibility in life can compete with the responsibility that comes with being a good father.”— Hon. Beverley J. Oda.
