Gift Guide For Any Dad

father’s day

When it comes to Father’s Day, it’s time to go beyond just the new set of tools or a coffee giftcard.   While these are great items, and well, who are we kidding, we probably gave our own desi dads these gifts growing up, but, our kids and us masalamommas, really do know our partners better than that. So why not tailor a gift just this one day in the year?

Did you know?

According to a new Sears Canada Survey more than one third of Canadian dads (36 per cent) agreed the number one gift they would most like to receive for Father’s Day is fashion-related, whether it’s a hot new suit, a crisp shirt and tie or trendy boat shoes — a true sign that gifting dad with a new tie or statement socks is far from passé, and that fashion dad is here to stay!

We want to celebrate all the roles dads play in our families and the fact that dads are much more hands-on and involved in parenting these days.  Whether he’s a gadget guy or the golf enthusiast, the Stardust (geez, did we just write that?!) cover model or an outdoorsy cottage-going nature hiker, there’s a gift for every dad persona.
