Everyday should be Father’s Day. Whether it’s for the man cave enthusiast, the aspiring chef, the adventurer or the mellow guy about the house, we’ve got you covered with a few ways to celebrate the dad, grandad, or mentor in your life.
The Gadget Lover
For the one-and-done kind of dad, we suggest the Shark AI Robot VacMop Pro that features double-duty cleaning technology. Not only does this bot sport incredible suction vacuuming, it also simultaneously mops floors at high speed to break down tough, stuck-on messes.
The Kitchen Warrior
The Ninja Foodi 6-in-1 8-qt. 2-Basket Air Fryer with DualZone Technology is the sidekick every Foodie Dad needs, whether cooking up a feast for game day or making sides for the barbecue of a lifetime. Impress him with the first air fryer with two independent baskets that let you cook two dishes at once. This kitchen warrior’s Smart Finish Technology intelligently manages cooking so both dishes finish at the same time and require little to no oil — making it a healthy way to cook dad’s favourite snacks!
The Action Hero
The active person in your life is also bound to suffer from workout aches and pains. Awaye, a new topical pain relief cream, can help soothe those same aches and pains that might hold him back from his everyday activities — biking, golfing, gardening, doing chores, well, all of it. Made in Canada, the Awaye contains capsaicin, which is derived from chili pepper, and terpene that is found in essentials oils, offering safe, non-addictive, clinically tested relief from acute and chronic pain due to sprains, backaches, muscle soreness and more.
Start your engines and give the gift of this detailing tool to keep dad’s wheels at their best. The Shark UltraCyclone Pet Pro+ is a powerful hand vacuum perfect for tidying up the car, the man cave, even the furniture. Its two ultra-powerful cyclonic air streams, long-lasting filter and extended motor life get the job done. This nifty device also features a detachable self-cleaning Pet Power Brush, which means easier clean up after his fur babies, too.
Give dad the gift of clean air with OZONOS, an air purifier that improves air quality by helping eliminate allergens, viruses (including coronaviruses) and odours. And it’s just a bit bigger than a typical Bluetooth speaker — making it portable or easily wall-mountable. It can also be connected to a smart home device for seamless control and there’s no filter, so it’s virtually maintenance-free.
And, for the One Who Has Everything …
Help him kick off summer by feeding his wanderlust. Hotel X Toronto by Library Hotel Collection has partnered with Porsche Drive to create a weekend staycation experience — with the ultimate getaway starting right in the guest’s driveway.
Hotel X is calling it a door-to-door experience, with the Porsche Drive concierge service delivering a Porsche 911 directly to the guest’s residence and providing a custom scenic route for their cruise to Hotel X Toronto. Upon arrival at the hotel, a VIP parking spot comes complimentary. Part of the getaway also includes a picnic experience for two complete with Instagram-worthy destination recommendations.
The VIP guest will have access to the Porsche Drive concierge and the amenities available at Hotel X Toronto during their stay. Once the weekend has come to an end, the guests will drive home in “their” Porsche 911, where the Porsche Drive concierge will pick up the car, completing the weekend escape. The Porsche Drive Experience is available starting June 19, 2021 and runs through to September 6, 2021, with packages starting at $1,718.
