Father’s Day

fathers day  derks blogFather’s Day is coming up, and we have some good ideas for things to get your dad for the big day. We all leave Dads so underappreciated. So we want to find ways to really show your dad how much you appreciate him.

If you plan on going with a gift, we love the idea of going classic. Ties are a great go-to (feel free to come to Derks and check out our awesome selection!). Sure, it might be cliché, but they always go to good use, and you can never have too many ties. They are the ultimate dad gift.

If your dad is not the tie-wearing type, get him something to do with his favourite hobby. Fishing gear, camping gear, tools, tickets to a car show, tickets to a concert, a gift card to his favourite electronics store. Think outside of the box!

Maybe your dad isn’t the gift guy, and he would prefer some quality time. We have ideas for that too! A fishing trip, camping trip, a game of golf. This is obviously the tip of the iceberg. Try going to a concert, a comedy show, an escape room, Axe Hole in Edmonton!  A movie, a road trip, anything he might want!

Basically, think about it this way: how well do you know your dad? If you know him well, you will know exactly what he would want. If you don’t, go for a gift that really goes for the quality time. Your dad will only be around for so long. Do not miss out on the opportunities that you have to spend time with him. These days run out all too soon. It is important that you take advantage of them every chance you get.
