For Dad

For most of my childhood, Dad’s Day meant heading to the local drugstore to pick up yet another Old Spice Soap-On-A-Rope. Sweet man that he is, my father welcomed each new bar with the same sense of surprise and glee as the last. So, in honour of all the amazing men in our lives, this Sunday is all about celebrating Dad’s very special qualities, and more importantly, big-time pampering. That means: coffee in bed, handmade cards, buttermilk pancakes, and maybe even an afternoon of golf.

And for those looking to slip a little extra something under Dads pillow – we’ve hand-picked a few goodies. Just remember, if all else fails, there’s always soap-on-a-rope!
