Father’s Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner. How are you celebrating your Dad for giving you a lifetime supply of bad jokes, good advice and great conversation? During this time, it’s more important than ever to support our local communities and small businesses so why not do that when buying your Father’s Day gift this year?

Here are some ideas for you to get started:

Fly Fishing Day Trip from Drift Out West Fly Fishing

If your Dad loves to get outdoors and hit the river, this guided trip will be the highlight of his summer. Fly fishing on the spectacular Bow River or one of Alberta’s pristine mountain streams is a bucket list experience. Quinn is the guide at Drift Out West and he provides everything your Dad needs for an adventure to the Bow River. Or book a trip for your whole family to spend the day outdoors together taking in the beautiful scenery of Alberta and creating memories to last a lifetime.

Coffee and Mug from Good Earth

Support your local Good Earth by buying your Dad a coffee bundle. Pick out his favourite bag of beans, a cozy mug and maybe a baked treat or two to pull together the perfect Sunday morning experience. Good Earth opened in Calgary in 1991 and since then has expanded across Canada but has always stuck to its roots of providing good coffee and food. You can share a cup of coffee with your Dad on Father’s Day morning knowing that you’ve helped support your local community at the same time.

New Golf Bag from Woodside Golf Course

You might not be able to get your Dad a better golf score, but the least you can do is help him look cool on the course with a new bag. Woodside Golf Course is located in Airdrie and has all the things that Dad needs to improve his game. Woodside is there to champion your opportunity to have an insanely outrageous time.

Baked Goods from Tara Sweet Shop

Give your Dad the gift of homemade baked goods. Tara’s Sweet Shop is located in Calgary and offer a wide range of homemade Pandesal and Donuts that will be gone as soon as your Dad opens them. They pride themselves on being able to offer quality services with a friendly face, and our customers will attest to it. Sound good? Of course it does. Check out their website for the list of breads, cakes and other sweet treats they make.
