Father’s Day takes place Sunday, June 17. Need gift ideas? Eagle Creek Village has tons of ways to celebrate dad! Give him a gift to match his interests; here are some ideas from the shops and services at the Village.
If your dad is a beer connoisseur, present him with a selection of locally brewed beers and ales from Cascadia Liquor like the new Twisted Stalk Blackberry Helles fruit beer or delicious new Ukidama Lychee Saison ale made by Vancouver Island Brewing. We’re sure he’d also appreciate a set of quality-made Riedel beer or tasting glasses from A Step Above. Top the gift up with a selection of sweet and savoury nuts or other yummy beer snacks from Quality Foods.
Give dad a healthy gift with a membership at the YMCA at the Village with state-of-the-art cardio and strength training equipment and group fitness classes, it gives him tons of convenient workout opportunities. Another great gift idea is a KitchenAid or Cuisinart juicer from A Step Above so he can create fresh, nutritious fruit and vegetable juices at home. Give him the gift of wholesome fuel with a gift card to Subway for his favourite sub. Looking for other inexpensive fitness related gift options? Try sport socks, reusable water containers, a baseball hat, or a pedometer from Dollar Tree.
Is dad’s favourite hangout the office? Give him a practical yet trendy travel mug and/or gift card from Starbucks or Tim Hortons to make his morning trips to the office a little easier. Looking for a budget-friendly gift for a businessman? Consider a selection of inexpensive office supplies like notebooks, pens, and business card holders from Dollar Tree – coordinate them in his favourite colour for a gift that will wow him.
Does dad take pride in his looks? Give him a cutting edge hair cut and quality hair products from popular brands Redken, Crew, or Paul Mitchell from Great Clips. Why not visit Forbes Pharmacy at the Village and pick up his favourite skin care products including cleaners, toners, moisturizers, and sunscreen? The store has a great selection of organic and natural lines.
Does dad love to explore? Give him a vacation to a local destination like Tofino or Campbell River or a far-off journey to an exotic locale like Mexico or the Dominican Republic. Whatever the vacation, give the gift of peace-of-mind by purchasing travel insurance for his next trip from Coast Capital Insurance or Coastal Community Savings Credit Union. He’d also appreciate handy travel accessories like a passport holder, luggage scale, or travel pillow from Dollar Tree.
If dad likes to BBQ, gift him with a selection of BBQ accessories. We like the inexpensive BBQ tools available from Dollar Tree. Dad would also appreciate a Gift Card from Quality Foods so he can purchase his favourite grilling items like Canadian AAA Black Angus 21 day aged top sirloin grilling steaks or a selection of locally caught seafood from French Creek Fisheries or Eco Trout Lodge. Top up the gift with an assortment of gourmet BBQ sauces and spices from Quality Foods and an apron from A Step Above and you have the perfect gift for your favourite griller!
Give dad a heartfelt homemade gift. Pick up a blank card, stickers, and pens from Dollar Tree and make dad a personalized card. Make your own custom t-shirt for dad with a plain t-shirt and fabric markers from a Dollar Tree. Or pick up breakfast ingredients like pancake mix, fresh fruit, and bacon from Quality Foods and treat dad to breakfast in bed!
