Citywide Gift Guide for Deck Loving Dads

Let’s face it – Dads are hard to shop for, and usually won’t tell you want they want for Father’s Day!

If the Dad in your life loves his deck, then we’re about to make gift giving a whole lot easier.

These gift ideas are perfect for any Dad who loves spending time outdoors. Read on to find the best gift ideas for your Dad!


Best Relaxing Gifts for Dad

Nothing beats lounging in a hammock with a drink and watching the world go by. Hammocks are great for decks and patios of all sizes – as you can quickly take them down if you need the space. If your Dad camps, he can pack up his hammock and take it with him. Available in all colours, designs, and price points, hammocks make ideal gifts for Dad!


Best Grilling Gifts for Dad

Father’s Day kicks off backyard barbecue season, making grilling gifts perfectly timed. If Dad needs a new BBQ, now’s the time to head over to Costco or Canadian Tire to get one. If he already owns his dream BBQ, give him a set of grill tools, a new cook book, or bring him some local meat or produce for him to cook up.


Best Birdwatching Gifts for Dad

Birdwatching is one of the most underrated therapeutic activities around. By giving a bird feeder, you’re treating Dad to years of chilled-out fun on his deck. This is an inexpensive gift that comes in all designs. Get the young ones involved in this gift by making a DIY bird feeder!


Best Entertaining Gifts for Dad

If your Dad loves a good deck party, treat him to some games he can play on the deck. From life sized Jenga (which yes, you can make this yourself) to a Cornhole Set, you’ll have no problem finding the perfect game for him.


Best Boozing Gifts for Dad

While you could grab Dad a bottle of wine or pack of craft beer, we’ve got a better idea. Treat Dad to a portable bar cart or bench. You can find these at most local home stores, or DIY your own from re-purposed furniture. A portable bar cart or bench is the ultimate booze-friendly gift. If you really want extra points with Dad, stock the bar with ingredients for one of these winning Father’s Day drinks.


Best Stylish Gifts for Dad

A new pair of shades are the perfect gift for Dad. Whether you’ve got a sporty Dad, a handyman Dad, or a silly Dad to shop for – there are shades to suit everyone. Sunglasses are always a much appreciated gift, and one that will be used for years to come!


Best Deck Upgrade Gifts for Dad

For the practical Dad that doesn’t want anything more than your presence for Father’s Day, consider chipping in as a family to upgrade his beloved deck.


  • Low maintenance vinyl decking helps Dad spend more time enjoying his deck, and less time maintaining it.


  • Privacy walls help the whole family feel more at peace without the neighbours looking in on your celebration.


  • Patio covers provide valuable shelter on your deck, so that Dad can use it all year round in the rainy Vancouver weather!
