Father's Day Gift Guide


Father's Day is Sunday June 15- have you got your Dad a gift yet? Here are some great ideas with something for every Dad- even the ones who are impossible to shop for! (Added Bonus: Most of them are from local YVR companies all deserving your love & support!)

Mr Money Bags
How long has your Dad had his wallet? If he's anything like mine, probably longer than you can remember. Give him something that's both practical & stylish... 

...like Stitch & Locke's the SLIDE wallet. Made from eco- friendly materials including cork, the SLIDE is streamlined & minimalist with room for 8 cards and cash and easily slips into pockets without the bulk of traditional a traditional wallet. Retail Price: $38

If you're looking for a more formal item check out local jewellery line foe and dear. They have sharp & snappy money clips that would be a classy gift for the suit & tie Dads out there. Available in matte finish or polished sterling silver, go to their Etsy store to view available items. Locally made right here in Vancouver, these are a classic gift right out of Mad Men. 



Mr I've Had This Shirt FOREVER
Give Dad his next favourite shirt for Father's Day and kick the old ones to the curb. For the Dad who never throws out his clothes & is infamous for wearing the same 3 shirts in rotation, here's some great ideas from some local Vancouver lines.


Here's a piece right out of the local scene- for locals & anyone who's visited YVR you'll recognize this locale on this T! Stanley Park T- shirt from The Hive Printing (you can purchase from their Etsy store here) $28. You can find The Hive at The Eastside Artisan June 7 at the Woodward Building in Vancouver.












If you're looking for a fresh take on classic pieces, check out Compass Travel Co by recent KPU grad Keisha Lowes (more on the line in our coverage of The Show 2014). Combining style & comfort, this line elevates wearable clothes into a fashionable elite. keisha.lowes@gmail.com







Mr I Have Everything
We all know someone who's hard to buy for. Dads tend to fall into this category a lot. If yours is a little into fashion or has a funky fashion sense, how about a fun accessory? 

Try a bow tie! Have some fun with Dad this year & give him one of the top accessories out there. Check out Maison Beautista for some awesome locally made pieces!
Another option from foe and dear is a fun little finishing touch: a tie bar. A dapper idea to complete the ensembles of the formal dudes out there- break out the martinis! Available through their Etsy store.
I hope this list has given you a few ideas to get the ball rolling! Happy hunting & enjoy some quality time with your Pops this Father's Day!
