Father’s Day Gift Guide – for the Dad Who Loves The Coast and Cottage

Here’s a Father’s Day gift guide with a diverse range of options to suit different interests and preferences:

Battery Operated Chain Saw: For the dad who loves DIY projects or enjoys spending time in the garden, a battery-operated chain saw can be a handy tool for pruning branches or cutting firewood.  I love this chainsaw as it’s light weight enough that you don’t get tired using it and yet powerful enough to cut through large branches.  

Croquet Set: Perfect for the dad who enjoys outdoor games and activities, a croquet set can provide hours of fun for the whole family in the backyard or at the park.  My family enjoys what we call “extreme croquet”.  The course is challenging and populated with a few water hazards, otherwise known as sprinklers.

Binoculars: Whether he’s a birdwatching enthusiast or enjoys outdoor adventures like hiking and camping, a high-quality pair of binoculars can enhance his outdoor experiences.  I’m forever checking the ocean hoping that what I’m seeing is a whale.  Usually it turns out to be just a bird though.

Apple AirPods: Ideal for the tech-savvy dad who loves listening to music, podcasts, or making hands-free calls on the go.  I really struggled with paying this amount of money for earphones for myself but I have to say that I am so glad I did.  These are a game changer.  Listening to audio books while I weed has me almost looking forward to the chore.

Google Nest Doorbell: For the dad who prioritizes home security and convenience, a Google Nest Doorbell can provide peace of mind by allowing him to monitor who’s at the door from anywhere using his smartphone.  It’s great for checking if a package has been delivered too.

Google Nest Smoke Detector: Another great addition to a smart home setup, the Google Nest Smoke Detector offers advanced smoke and carbon monoxide detection capabilities along with smartphone alerts for added safety.  And who doesn’t appreciate a text from their smoke detector.  Cue eye roll.

Lululemon ABC Slim Fit Trousers: Combining style and comfort, Lululemon’s ABC Slim Fit Trousers are perfect for the active dad who appreciates clothing that can transition seamlessly from work to workouts.  My adult sons are huge fans of how comfortable these pants are.

Beach Blanket: Whether he loves lounging on the beach or picnicking in the park, a durable and stylish beach blanket can make outdoor relaxation even more enjoyable.  

Adirondack Chair: Give him the gift of relaxation with a classic Adirondack chair for the backyard or patio, perfect for soaking up the sun or enjoying a good book outdoors.  The outdoors equivalent of a Lazyboy.

Hoover Spotless Portable Carpet Cleaner: Ideal for busy dads who want to keep their carpets and upholstery looking fresh and clean without the hassle of renting a bulky carpet cleaner.  Perfect for the Dad who is perhaps a bit of a clutz and always spilling.

Mexican Train Dominoes Game: For the dad who loves game nights with family and friends, a Mexican Train Dominoes set can provide hours of entertainment and friendly competition.  And unlike Monopoly, the games don’t go on forever and no one leaves the table in a huff.

Acurite Pro Weather Station: Perfect for the dad who’s fascinated by weather patterns and loves to keep track of temperature, humidity, and other weather metrics right from the comfort of home.  Living on the ocean, I’m always checking the wind speed out of curiosity.  When it hits 45 km/hr, it’s time to charge all my devices as a power outage is a definite possibility.

Nespresso: For the coffee-loving dad who appreciates the convenience of a quality espresso or cappuccino at the touch of a button, a Nespresso machine is a must-have addition to his kitchen.  

With this diverse selection of gifts, you’re sure to find the perfect way to show your appreciation for dad on Father’s Day!
