4 Calgary Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

This year, get dad some pocket cocktails, a cool cat perch or some tasty Italian salami.

This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 17, which means there’s still plenty of time to do some shopping and pick out a great local gift for the father figure in your life. Here are four gift ideas from local companies to consider.

Pocket Cocktails from BarCountry

A post shared by BarCountry (@barcntry) on

These dehydrated cocktail mixes are perfect for the dad who loves to explore and drink. The next time he’s going camping or on a hike, he can simply pour the cocktail mix packet, follow the directions for how much spirits and water to add and shake it up. The cocktail options include a coconut-lime margarita, a cherry infused old fashioned, an all-dressed bloody Mary and a pickled bloody Caesar.



A Cat Perch from Flat Furniture

Flat Furniture offers the perfect gift for all the cat dads out there. This nifty cat perch is made of Baltic birch plywood and you can choose whether each shelf should be a plant holder, a cat ledge or simply a shelf. You also get to choose whether you want red, yellow, blue, green, black or light grey felt (or no felt at all) covering each of the shelves. The sisal rope around the base makes for a perfect scratching post.



A Bracelet from Playfield Bracelets

Created with beads made of materials ranging from meranti repurposed wood to volcanic stone, these bracelets aren’t just pretty to look at. Each time one is purchased, 10 percent of the profits end up supporting a Canadian charity or non-profit. Playfield Bracelets are available at seven local retailers and online.



Italian Salumi from VDG Salumi

Dad can use VDG’s Italian salumi when crafting a charcuterie board or simply for snacking on alone. The locally made, perfectly packaged tubes of salami come in three flavours: there’s a prosciutto salami, a fennel salami and a spicy calabrian salami. You’ll find VDG Salumi products at 10 local retailers.
