Dads of all kinds have been there for us, from our first bike ride without training wheels to when they shed a tear at our high school graduation. After all the birthdays, soccer practices, and comforting hugs, we’re all grown up—but our dads get to still play a huge part in our lives, especially as we have kids of our own.
The month of June has approached us and with it, Father’s Day is on the horizon. For those that want to show their appreciation for Dad, or love sharing his new gadgets, it is time to start thinking about gift ideas. If you need a little help coming up with a “wow-factor” gift, here are a few choices from London Drugs:
Help Dad get a jump-start on his exercise this Father’s Day with the Fitbit Flex. This stylish device is perfect for a fitness lifestyle. During the day, it tracks steps, distance and calories burned. At night, the Fitbit Flex will track Dad’s sleeping patterns, and will wake him up gently in the morning. He can even see how he is stacking up against his personal fitness goals by checking out the LED lights that show his progress.
GoPro HERO4 Adventure – Black
Is Dad into videography? Give Dad the gift of capturing precious Father’s Day moments with the most advanced GoPro ever, the GoPro HERO4 – Black. The Emmy award-winning GoPro performance is taken to a whole new level with it’s image quality and 2x more powerful processor. With 4K high-resolution and a high frame rate of 1080p120, Dad will be able to capture stunning videos yearlong.
Whether it’s the cooking, yard work or picking up and dropping off of the kids from school, dad is always there to lend a hand. This Father’s Day, take the load of responsibilities off dad and make him feel like a kid again. London Drugs has some fun gifts that both you and dad can enjoy.
Almost every boy has at one point played with a remote control helicopter. This Father’s Day, give Dad a chance to have a little fun and gift him the Cobra Large Single Blade Helicopter. Why not make a day out of it and spend Father’s day learning how to fly the helicopter together? The Single rotor technology will make for a realistic flying experience.
Does dad like adventuring and finding new places? Go on an adventure with Dad this Father’s Day with the Magellan Roadmap GPS. Explore together and maybe even find a new picnic spot or a new golf course that you both may not have known about before.
Does Dad still have some classic vinyl? This Father’s Day, give dad the chance to transfer those albums into the digital world and onto his PC, or music player, with the Sony Turntable. Using the USB connection, he can import all his favourite music into his computer and create MP3 files to store on a PC or bring along with him on his favourite portable player.
Maybe Dad is a little more into listening to music than making his own. If that seems to be the case, think about gifting Dad a Led Zeppelin III Remastered CD. Let Dad listen to some tunes while he’s working away in the office or driving off to work. Give him two presents in one and purchase the Led Zeppelin III Remastered Vinyl as well. There are hundreds of other vinyl albums in stock if Led Zeppelin isn’t dad’s thing.
Is Dad into gaming? Or, even better, are you too? This Father’s Day, gift dad an Xbox 360 controller to intensify his gaming experience. Why not challenge Dad to a one-on-one game? Give him one more extra surprise when he opens his presents this Father’s Day: pre order the Xbox 360 Watch Dogs that dad has been raving about for months.
Maybe Dad is more into sitting back, relaxing, and putting his feet up this Father’s Day. If so, why not look into purchasing Dad a brand new Samsung LED TV. This Samsung TV gives high quality and great colour so you and Dad can pull out some of those old home videos and laugh about that crazy mustache he used to have.
This Father’s Day, think about having a BBQ outside and enjoy the June weather! The Klipsch Woofer at London Drugs is a great system that provides quality sound even during your outdoor activities. Gift dad the chance to blast his tunes in your background or local park; this is a gift that everyone can enjoy!
Kick up the Father’s Day BBQ and get your Italian feel on. The Bakerstone Pizza Oven converts your natural or propane gas grill into a gourmet pizza oven. Team up with Dad to bake pizzeria quality pizzas in two to four minutes in your own back yard. Convert cooking into an engaging, delicious & exciting social event!
Help Dad take the work out of the dreadful grill cleaning with the Grillbots BBQ Cleaner. This device has powerful motors and replaceable bristle-brushes that get the job done. Take the workload off dad by showing him how to simply place the Grillbot on the BBQ grill, press the button and it’s good to go. Dad will be pleased to see that all grease and caked-on grime is removed leaving the grill sparkling clean. This item will be available soon.
It’s a special day to celebrate the devoted Dad, but unlike Mom, he’s a bit harder to shop for. He doesn’t drop hints for gifts, or expect anything other than perhaps a special sleep-in. He may not be loud and proud about his special day, but it’s always nice to surprise Dad with a small token of your love and appreciation.
We asked a few of Canada’s popular parenting bloggers, and their special guest contributors, to help shine a spotlight on Dad, and help uncover some fun finds for Father’s Day at London Drugs.

I thought I knew all the best places in town to buy records, that is, until recently. Imagine my surprise when I learned London Drugs has quietly been building up their record section. They have a great cross section of LPs for sale – everything from staples like the Beatles, Rolling Stone and Jimi Hendrix, to metal (Iron Maiden) grunge (Nirvana), modern rock (Black Keys, Coldplay), 80s pop (The Cars) and beyond. They also had a decent selection of picture disks, box sets and even a couple of cool seven-inch singles. I was impressed with their selection. Kudos to whoever is responsible for purchasing.
