Unique Father's Day Gifts

Here’s a handful of off-the-beaten-path Father’s Day gifts for that special Dad in your life.

Happy Father’s Day from Mrs R!

For the snap-happy Pop:  

Califonia-based company Anchors & Anvils make carefully crafted leather accessories for cameras— and sell a small collection of vintage cameras that have been lovingly restored.  We love the look of this wood-panelled Minolta.


For the thinking Father:

The House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods by Matt Bell.  Hot new writer Matt Bell ponders the meaning of fatherhood, husbandhood and manhood from a strange world of bears, giant lake monsters and endless rooms.  A powerful exploration of the limits of parenthood and marriage.

For the thirsty Dad:

Maestro Dobel Tequila is double-distilled, matured in Hungarian White Oak barrels, and filtered for exceptional smoothness and clarity.   This is a seductive sipping tequila – no matter what his usual tipple Dad will be impressed.


For the stylish Papa:

LODING hails from France and specializes in  providing the highest quality mens shoes, shirts, ties, belts.   Every style of any particular item is the same price  – and the quality is excellent.  Their first Canadian store  recently opened in Toronto, making smart Parisian style accessible to Canadian men.


For the Dad who loves to cook –  but could use a helping hand:

The first Wi-Fi-enabled leave-in probe thermometer from Williams Sonoma. Connect this smart thermometer to Dad’s iPad or iPhone and he can schedule separate timers and alerts for tasks like basting the turkey so everything gets to the table on time.  Imagine a holiday meal without hearing “When did I put the INSERT DISH HERE in?”



For the golfing Dad:

Loudmouth‘s golf pants live up to their name.  Fun and impossible to miss on the course, why not combine sport with art with this Mondrian-inspired pair?
