Great Gifts Ideas For The Hard-To-Buy-For Dad

Fathers Day

Still looking for a last minute Father’s Day gift? Sport Chek and Mark’s offer a wonderful selection of products that would make the perfect gifts for Dad. Below a couple of items that make fantastic gift ideas for every budget and were on my husband’s “wish list’ this year. A gift card to either/both stores would always be a great present as well.

Stanley One Hand Vacuum Tumbler / Mark’s ($26.24)

  • Stenley TumblerIdeal for tote-along hot beverages at work or school, this Stanley one-hand vacuum flask keeps drinks hot for up to six hours and cold for up to 24 hours. This flask has a thermal push-button lid that you can open and close with one hand, which makes it easy to take breakfast on the run. The stainless steel flask is BPA-free and comes with a lifetime warranty.

The mornings are busy at our home. Our 4-year-old has to be at pre-school by 8:30am every morning and my husband drops him off before he starts work. We are always rushing and running to eat breakfast before leaving and that means he often has no time to drink his morning coffee or ends up drinking it in a hurry. The Stanley Tumbler is perfect for him to take his coffee on the go and to enjoy it at work!

LEVI’S 513 Slim Straight- Cash Jeans / Mark’s $79.50

  • Levi jeansLevi’s® most universal slim fit jean. The 513™ Slim Straight Jean is cut straight for more room in the seat and thigh, and narrows from the knee to ankle.

Because a great pair of Jeans always make the perfect gift. My husband rarely wears anything other than jeans and a pair of Levi’s is a classic gift! The Slim Straight cut also looks great casual or more dressy with the right top and shoes.

Mark’s offers a great selection of Jeans in brands like Levi’s, Buffalo, Denver Hayes and more, be sure to check it out online.

Lacoste Ultra-Dry Men’s Polo /Sport Chek ($98)

  • LacosteThe essential athletic polo in a piqué version of our ultra-dry performance fabric that wicks moisture away and dries quickly. Wear it on the tennis court or to amble about town on casual weekends.

Because men love being comfortable and looking stylish at the same time. This ultra-dry men’s polo is great because it wicks moisture away and keeps him dry while looking great. Perfect for weekends with the family!

Mark’s also offers footwear, workwear and accessories for the working Dad. You will also find a lot of sports equipment and accessories at Sport Check for the active-sporty Dad. Both great stores to check out if you are looking for a special gift for Dad!

Happy Father’s Day!
