The Gift of Time for Dad


Every time I ask my dad what he wants for a gift, he tends to be stubborn and says “Nothing.”  If I press a little further, nine times out of ten he’ll then say, “just give me your time.”

This about sums it up. The most memorable things I can think of with my dad have been moments we’ve shared together. Fishing off the side of the boat as a kid, talks in the car, movie nights, drives up to the cottage…it was always about time together.

I’ve always been very nostalgic. Good ‘ol Google tells me that this word essentially means “a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.” I often find myself in this nostalgic state, especially around times of year like Father’s Day.  It’s great to look back on good times with those you love. Experiencing life with people close to you is a gift in itself, and being able to cherish the memory makes it even more meaningful.

Oftentimes, the most beautiful gifts to give are those that remind the recipient of those special times.. The meaning in gifts holds so much when it evokes special memories.  As Canada’s premiere gift company we take a great gift and help you evoke the special meaning behind it.  For example, when my Dad says he just wants “my time” I think, a pocket watch with his name and “love your daughters” engraved on it is a unique way to mark all the special times we’ve spend together.  My Dad is gonna love it!

But that’s not all you can please and surprise your beloved dad. Many men have a sweet tooth, despite the common stereotype in society that this is the prerogative only of girls and women. Therefore, giving a universal sweety gift is a tempting idea, especially because today you can find hundreds of options for such a presentation. A sweet gift for him can be filled with chocolate, fruit, candy, waffles, and other sweet surprises, as well as complemented by alcohol, coffee, nuts, or even cheeses. Choosing the right set depends solely on your imagination and your father’s preferences.

Give joy to your loved ones and receive it in return – together with us!
