The Need for Speed
Start your engines and give the gift of this VROOM-worthy detailing tool to keep Dad’s prized possession at its best. The Shark UltraCyclone™ Pet Pro+ ($130.00) is a powerful yet nimble hand vacuum perfect for tidying up the car. 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 Dad can bring Buddy along for the ride without worrying about fur being left behind.
The Chef, the myth, the legend
The Ninja® Foodi™ 6-in-1 8-qt. 2-Basket Air Fryer with DualZone™ Technology ($179.99) is the sidekick every Foodie Dad needs, whether cooking up a feast for game day or making sides for the BBQ of a lifetime. Impress him with the first air fryer with two independent baskets that let you cook two foods at once. This kitchen warrior’s Smart Finish Technology intelligently manages cooking so both foods finish at the same time and require little to no oil, making it a healthy way to cook Dad’s favourite snacks!
The Grape Gatsby
Give the gift of a stellar sip to the wine collector of the family, courtesy of Jackson Family Wines. Whether Dad loves a rambunctious red with their favourite cut of steak or enjoys a well-rounded sip on a cool summer evening, JFW has a selection of vintages available across Canada that are cheers-worthy. Our favourites are: Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($29.95) - The colour of deep ruby-purple, this cab opens with hints of grilled black plum, blueberries, vanilla bean and pie spices with sprinkles of red fruit. Classified as medium to full-bodied, it offers great flavour intensity and is the perfect accompaniment to a mouth-watering seared steak!
La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ($34.95) - Sonoma is renowned for the quality of the Pinot it produces. This one is nuanced and silky with impressive cherry, strawberry, earth and spice aromas and concentrated flavours. A great choice for cedar-planked salmon, or pork dishes.
