Father’s Day in Downtown Calgary

by Downtown Calgary · 0 comments

Are you a last minute shopper? Don’t worry – we got you!

It’s the time of year where we get to celebrate our dear old Dad. But what do you get the man you owe it all too when he has quite literally everything he needs – or so he seems. The trick is finding that one item you know he’s going to love and cherish, but he doesn’t know he wants yet!

Simple task, not in the slightest!

We aren’t talking “best dad ever” mugs or plaques; he likely has enough of those from over the years. We are thinking a locally made pair of socks, new suit accessory, or a piece of gear to help him enjoy his outdoor pursuits this summer. 

Regardless if your dad’s interests or fashion style, here are 8 spots in Downtown Calgary that you can pick him up the perfect gift that says “I love you,” and won’t collect dust in his office at the same time!  


Whether your dad needs a new pack, jacket, or pair of classic convertible pants, Patagonia has it all and then some! He will love sporting his new adventure look next time he heads out to the mountains. 


Your go-to store for everything home and fashion! Whether he needs to replenish his tee shirt collection, get a new pair of Levis, or update some of his fashion choices – we can guarantee you’ll find what you’re looking for at this trendy Canadian fashion department store. We’ve also heard that the word on the block is that they are having some pretty crazy sales at the moment!

Father’s Day at the Core

Bring your dad downtown and score a FREE round of mini golf on the second level of the Core. When you’re done, drop your scorecard off and you’ll be entered to win an exciting prize pack, or a round of golf for four people at Play Golf Calgary. Quality time is the best gift you could truly give him!

Up your dad’s sock game and so he can become the trendiest one at work! These socks are designed here in Calgary are great for wearing with dress shoes, chucks, loafers, or steel toed boots. No matter his style, they will fit! Also be sure to check out the other local goodies that they offer in this store, such as Bro Brick and Local Laundry.

Their in-store promotion is also worth checking out!

A true classic for gifts of all sorts! From a card to knick-knacks you never knew you needed, it’s very likely you’ll come out of this store with way more than you intended. From books to games to accessories to get the grill going, Indigo has it all and then some.
