2015 Father's Day Gift Guide

This year Father’s Day falls on Sunday June 21st. It's of course a special day when you can commemorate the love you have for that special person in your life, your Dad.

Fathers deserve to have a day when they can relax and have their loved ones show them how much they care. Sometimes it may be difficult to find that perfect gift that dad would like. I’m sure Dad though will like whatever you decide to give. But if you are looking for some ideas, then here is a list of suggestions that I am sure any Dad would love:

The Body Shop (Canada)-

This year for Father's Day, make him smell amazing this season with this head-to-toe collection in The Body Shop's iconic White Musk® For Men scent: a sensual blend of musk, lavender, cedarwood, vetiver and amber notes.  The Modern Gent's Fragrance Kit is the perfect gift for the dapper Dad!

Give Dad a break from the BBQ on Father’s Day and treat him to dinner at Red Robin! Celebrate with over  two dozen craveable, high-quality burgers with Bottomless Steak Fries, salads, soups, appetizers, entrees, desserts extensive selection of local and regional beers.

Way Spa-

Dads might like any one of the massages,a hot towel shave or a back facial. These treatments are more manly than a mani,pedi but lets face it,Dad could use one of those too. Once men get pampered with a spa treatment, their guaranteed to be back again!

Litehawk Mini High Roller-

Roll across the floor, up the wall, across the ceiling and fly it back to hover before you.

The small size means this quad copter is nimble and precise, even while flying in the tightest of places. Innovative high impact resistant roll cage protects the quad copter and allows flight in any way the pilot would like to fly…or roll. Indoor/outdoor flight and thanks to super-bright LED orientation lights to fly in the dark too.

Features 4 channel 2.4GHz radio technology that allows the freedom of having extreme fun with no worries about frequency or channel conflicts. Experience precise flights using digital 3 axis stabilization technology. Includes on board rechargeable Lipo battery. Two flight modes available in addition to auto-pilot mode. Range is about 150 ft.

An excellent gift for Father’s Day because quad copters / drones are very popular right now! It's a challenge to learn how to fly and dads can enjoy this with any of their kids – girls or boys. There are You Tube video links that show how exciting this toy can be! All of the parts are replaceable so even if dad is demonstrating his skills and something breaks; it’s as easy as visiting to get it up and running again. 
Retails @ $59.99 suggested

The Mini High Roller is available at specialty retailers nationwide, including:
Best Buy, Toys R Us, TSC (The Incredible Country Hardware Store) and Home Hardware

Logitech Keys-To-Go-

The Logitech® Keys-To-Go ($69.99) is a portable, standalone keyboard that can fit anywhere and go everywhere. It’s thin, light and durable, so you can easily tuck it into your bag or coat pocket.

For dads that love a cup of great coffee, they have just the right gift for them. There is a difference between freshly roasted coffee beans and coffee beans that have been sitting idle, waiting to be consumed. At, they strive to ensure that all coffee delivered to their customers is freshly roasted to allow the unique aroma and flavor to flourish when brewed. All their coffee is ethically sourced, proudly roasted on the West Coast, and shipped within two weeks of roasting date. For this Father’s Day, give him the unique gift that will certainly impress.

**Gerry tried the coffee in this pack and loved the robust flavors. Unique aromas and flavoring came right through from start to finish with GotMyBeans. The best thing? The coffee stayed fresh for hours upon hours! But don't take our word for it- buy some for dad this Father's Day.. he's going to enjoy these :)
