by Downtown Calgary · 0 comments

Father’s Day is this Sunday and if you are anything like the majority of the population, you might have forgotten to pick up your Father’s Day card and gift. Luckily, there are so many great spots to pick up fantastic gifts for your dad right down here in the heart of the city.

The Vans x Peanuts Collection is the perfect nostalgic gift to give dear old dad with all the fun characters like Charlie Brown and Snoopy adorned on classic Vans footwear and clothing. This Charlie Brown baseball tee is a great addition to his summer wardrobe – and dads of all age groups will love the throwback to their childhood.

Available at Simons

If the Dad in your life is a music fan, he’ll probably love checking out this great coffee book called Vinyl Me, Please: 100 Albums You Need in Your Collection. It is a beautiful book full of fantastic discography that any audiophile worth their salt should have on their vinyl-filled shelves. Plus, we can all use some tips when it comes to the best music worth collecting – take a peek at it too and learn something about music history.

Speaking of music, if Father Dearest can’t stream his fave Spotify playlists without a sweet speaker to listen to them on. Pop into the Telus Connected Experience Store at The Core and check out their great selection of smart home products including the Sonos PLAY:3. Not only is it a sleek and stylish for the tech-savvy dad but it also compatible with a number of devices – the possibilities are endless. Hook it up for seamless play in multiple rooms, using your phone, tablet or computer. It features Trueplay tuning which analyzes your room to deliver sound personalized to the space and the available acoustics.

Is Dad planning some adventures this summer? You’ll want to pick up a Fjallraven Kanken backpack for him to stash away all of his snacks and adventure must-haves in. Designed in Sweden, the Fjallraven backpacks are the ultimate classic outdoor accessories – dating back to 1960. The style is timeless and looks good whether Dad is setting up camp in the woods or heading to the park with the kids.

Available at Little Burgundy

Is your dad a total coffee snob? Or perhaps he needs to be schooled on his coffee habits? Pop by Monogram Coffee for some freshly roasted beans (in the coolest bag to boot) and pick up one of their branded glass Keep Cup Travel Mugs. Every time your dad makes a coffee, he will think of you!
