Father’s Day Gift Guide

In the past, we’ve explored the gift ideas that appeal to all kinds of dads, ones who dress up, enjoy fine wine or scotch, travel, and splurge on grooming products. This year, we’re giving our ideas for the other 2/3s of dads out there – the guys who prefer to be in the yard, get the guys over and BBQ. Don’t be confused, these are still Style Dads but these guys are more comfortable in the yard than they are at a martini bar.

Here are clips from our recent press tour, below are details on where you can find these great items for your dad.

Men’s Holiday Gift Guide

Men are notoriously hard to shop for. We may say, “we don’t need anything,” and that may be true, but we still love opening a well-thought out gift on Christmas morning. From the tech lover to the style guy in your life, or even the man who appreciates a proper cocktail, here are our picks for holiday 2015.

 

Dewar’s 12 – The world’s most awarded blended scotch, the Dewar’s 12 is the perfect drink to pour neat or on the rocks and enjoy conversation over the holidays.

Dewars 12

LG G4 & Music Flow P7 – For the tech lover on your list we have two devices that are getting a lot of attention. The G4 is newest smart phone from LG with a 16 megapixel main camera so they can snap and share all of their memories over the holiday. It also connects seamlessly via bluetooth the Music Flow P7. With two channels this speaker fills the room like no other (or buy two and connect them for even bigger sound). Visit LG Canada. LG

HomeSense – We love a beautifully set up bar. Presenting your holiday guests drinks from decanters, in proper glassware, mixed in shakers and pitchers makes them extra special (and delicious). Visit the HomeSense website for inspiration and visit a store near you.

Mr. Turk – We met Mr. Turk himself at his Palm Springs flagship store a few years ago and we can’t get enough of the California dapper style. These are the pieces that a lot of men wouldn’t pick for themselves but when they wear them the compliments come flying. Push him out of his comfort zone and get him looking chic for the New Year. Mr. Turk delivers to Canada too, fear not!
