10 Unique Father’s Day Gifts That Are More Thoughtful Than A Tie
It’s almost time to celebrate one of the most important men in your life – your dad (and don’t forget your grandfather, father-in-law, or any other dads you know!). But dads are notoriously hard to shop for – especially on a budget! That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the bestselling and top-rated Father’s Day gift ideas for every type of dad. So it’s time to trade in that tie you get him every year for some of these unique gifts he’ll actually use – and love!
Arguably the most polarizing candy out there, black liquorice has a love/hate relationship with many…except for dads, they love this stuff! Lakrids Artisan Sweet Liquorice is even better than the kind dad grew up with – imported from Denmark (and new to Well.ca!), this premium treat offers sweetness balanced with strength and a touch of finesse from pure aniseed.
Help dad upgrade his look with this Tiger Eye Lava Bead Bracelet from Oriwest – guaranteed to make any dad a cool dad. The authentic lava beads are made from
cooled lava and offer a unique way for dad to experience aromatherapy on-the-go – he just needs to add a few drops of his fave essential oil (or yours!) directly to the bead and enjoy the subtle fragrance. It lasts for days!
