Whether you call him Dad, Pa, Pops, or, Papa, Father’s Day is just around the corner and that means it’s time to get him something special. Luckily, there’s no shortage of places in Barrie if you’re looking for awesome Father’s Day gift ideas!
1. Always Bearded
Are you always standing in awe of your dad’s magnificent beard? Facial hair like that doesn’t come easy. The folks at Always Bearded have everything he needs to take care of his beard including cream, balm, shampoo, conditioner, combs, and brushes. They’re locally owned too!
Find them online or at 122 Saunders Rd Unit 14.
2. Tangle Creek
If there’s one tried and tested way to make dad happy, it’s a day on the greens and you can’t find much better than Tangle Creek. Along with the perfectly challenging 18-hole course, Tangle Creek sports a 400-yard driving range, short game, and putting practice areas. They also have a beautiful clubhouse where you can enjoy a cool drink and some food after the game!
If you’ve ever spilled something, gotten crumbs everywhere, or otherwise made a mess in your dad’s car (which we can pretty much guarantee you have, cause every kid does) this is a good way to make up for it. An interior detailing at Zenetec will have it looking spick and span! Or you can pick him up a car wash pass so he can get his car cleaned up as many times as he wants.
4. Everleigh Garden
If you can’t quite pin down what dad wants, Everleigh Garden has more gift ideas than you could possibly want! If he loves his coffee in the morning, you could pick him up a brand-new coffee maker or if he spends his time shining up the bar, they have a fantastic selection of barware and bar accessories.
5. Napoleon Home Comfort
You know what dad’s love? Grilling. And nothing takes your grill game to the next level like new BBQ accessories.
Baskets, rotisseries, tongs, spices, sauce – you’ve got a lot of options in this category. Just prepare for your dad to spend a couple of hours standing at the grill with his hands on his hips with a huge smile on his face.
6. Burnetts Butcher Shop
Does your dad love grilling but has everything he needs? Don’t fret. Do you know what goes great on a grill? Meat.
Here in Barrie we have several amazing butchers. Barnett’s Butchers is one of those locations and they have some great packages that would make excellent Father’s Day gifts. Or splurge and get dad that Tomahawk Steak he’s always dreamed about?
Come on….he’s worth it.
Expand dad’s palate with a tasting box from J’Adore Fine Cheese. The downtown Barrie cheese shop regularly releases new tasting boxes, or you can build your own by ordering your favourites from their website. Some of our Father’s Day favourites include the Scotch Tasting Box, Charcuterie Box, or Irish Whiskey Box.
As Father’s Day approaches, it’s time to show our dads (and other important role models) just how much they mean to us. This year, instead of reaching for the same generic gifts, why not celebrate their uniqueness and support our local businesses at the same time? From delicious treats to practical but unexpected items, Barrie offers an array of thoughtful and one-of-a-kind Father’s Day gift ideas.
