TRY YOUR LUCK: Help Dad Look the Part this Father’s Day with Mark’s!

You may have noticed that Father’s Day’s around the corner, and it leaves me with mixed feelings. Sure, as a Dad it’s great to have a day recognising our efforts, but it constantly feels like we put a lot less thinking into it than Mother’s Day.

Maybe we’re too hard to shop for. We invariably see variations on the same gifts every year—booze. Gadgets. Sports stuff. Shaving things. New tools, automotive merchandise… if you’re going to get Dad a gift this June, you should at least do it right.

This sentiment in mind, I’m here to remind you that Mark’s has so much more than shirts and neckties for your Father’s Day shopping this June! You can keep him looking stylish with gifts like a pair of Timberland Grantly Chelsea Boots ($159.99). Or Silver Jeans Co.’s “Eddie” Relaxed Fit Tapered Leg Jeans ($115.00). Or you could get him ready for when summer inevitably ends months from now (#TooSoon?), and put a Denver Hayes HD1 Cross Hatch Stroller Jacket ($119.99) on his back like the one I’m rocking this fall!

I like it—and shopping at Mark’s—because they carry product combining fashion with functionality. The Stroller Jacket’s water-repellent, breathable, and easy to wash, so for a Dad routinely at his little boys’ mercy, it’s a perfect fit. (#DadJoke.)

And if I’ve learned anything from my time writing posts for Mark’s, I’m not the only one who’s down with their brand—plenty of my readers tell me how much they trust Mark’s to give them the right gear for their work and personal needs!

That in mind, I’m giving away a $100 Mark’s gift card to one lucky Canadian so they can refresh their wardrobe with some stellar Mark’s gear! It’s a Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad contest, so it takes little but a valid email address and a click to enter, but your chances improve astronomically if you look into the additional entry options! Many will enter, but one will win—why not do what you can to help that one be you? Good luck! (Contest open to Canadians aged 18+ living outside of Quebec. Contest ends 7/3 @ 11:59 PM ET.)

Show Dad You Care with a Father’s Day Gift from Mark’s — The Kind of Gift He’ll REALLY Use.

So this Father’s Day, let’s all try to do a little better and give our Dads something they can actually use. Our homes are already easy to fill with clutter—it’s time we help our fathers be the men they want to be. They act the part and often talk the part—help the make sure they continue looking the part.

I hope you have an excellent Father’s Day planned, and until the next,

  1. Sadly my Dad passed away 7 years ago and we miss him dearly.
    About 15 years ago, I bought my Dad a picture frame that you can record a message on. We had a big family party on Dad’s 80th birthday and he put a pic that was taken that day in the frame and recorded a message about it. We like to play the recording on special anniversaries to hear his voice and sometimes it plays on it’s own!

  2. This year I will be getting my stepdad a bottle of Baileys and a hat, he loves sitting out in the mornings drinking his coffee with baileys and the hat to protect his head from the sun!

  3. I am getting him a gift card to LCBO and will make him a nice dinner when we can find time to get together since we live 3 hours apart.

  4. My dad always loved fishing when he was living and one year for father’s day, the three of us kids went together and bought him a fish finder..or depth finder for his boat.

  5. Prob not getting him anything for fathers day but you never know..he ended up getting headphones for his bday… bought him a car for work last yr and this year he bought a camper so we’ve been camping, and buying stuff for it (we had a super old one before so we have had to add a few items) I think I’m going to make him fix the astronomy shed (We n eed to replace the flooring as its rotted on us..yes, we have an astronomy shed we built in the back yard with a rolling off roof…the man has everything INCLUDING ME LOL)

  6. My Dad passed away almost 10 years ago. I’m not sure what my favourite gift I ever got him for Father’s Day was. I know the last gift I bought him was a CD (the best of ELO), and he kept it in his car to listen to it while driving. I still have that CD. He really wanted it.

  7. I will have my dad over for a bbq and offer a card with a gift card for Swiss Chalet for him.. He will enjoy that.

  8. My dad passed away when I was quite young. I will be buying a new garburator for my husband for the kids and I.

  9. I never get my father “stuff” because he appreciates spending time with us and creating experiences and memories more. So this Father’s Day, my Dad and I will be spending time visiting a local museum and the attending a BBQ hosted at my sister’s house!

  10. My dad passed away a week before Xmas, 2005. The last few years his health was not good (vascular dementia), but when he was active, he loved going fly fishing for a few days in the spring & fall. When my godfather was alive, he took him too. He camperized a Dodge Maxivan, so when it was complete, I furnished it with matching unbreakable dishes & cutlery. When he couldn’t go any longer, he was just as happy with a bottle of Wiser’s Deluxe, or a classical CD or 2.

  11. My favourite thing that I got my dad was a Beach boys album since he loved them. sadly I do not remember any other gifts since I was only 8 when he was killed in a car accident

  12. My dad passed away last summer do this year I’m celebrating another father, who is turning out to be a wonderful DAD…my son!!

  13. My sister and I bought my Dad a fitness tracker. He tracks the number of consecutive days he walks and he’s over 1200 so this will help track even more cool stats!
