The Ultimate Father’s Day Guide
– By Jon Wiebe
Father’s Day is coming up quick and I wanted to help you out with this ultimate Father’s Day guide; which includes some great gift ideas, as well as some things you can do with your dad on Father’s Day! Make sure you read to the bottom to learn about a great contest you could possibly win for him too.
Park Royal is the one-stop Father’s Day destination. Not only can you find a gift for your dad (no matter what he’s into) but it’s also a great place to spend Father’s Day with your dad. If you need some help shopping for your dad this Father’s Day, head on over to Park Royal and let this guide help you find him the perfect gift!
Park Royal boasts the only Simons in BC, which makes it the perfect place to start looking for a gift for dad. A tie is one of the classic Father’s Day gifts and you should definitely use the opportunity to help your dad update his shirt and tie game.
From a simple plaid to a spring floral, Simons has a wide range of styles and patterns to fit any budget.
We all know that dads love their tech and gadgets. Best Buy at Park Royal is your first stop if tech is first on your dad’s wish list. One piece of technology that I think is a must is a set of Apple AirPods. This Best Buy location features a great Apple shopping experience with a full service Apple Store inside! It’s the perfect place to grab your dad some AirPods or maybe a new strap for his Apple Watch.

RYU is a Vancouver based company that focuses on urban athletic apparel. The staff at the RYU Park Royal location were so helpful in showing me some options not only for my own dad – but I might have checked out a few pieces for me as well.
What’s great about RYU is that they not only outfit athletes of all disciplines, but they also have some great lifestyle pieces as well. So even if your dad isn’t an athlete, they’ve got something that’s going to help him look and feel great. They have this great promotion happening right now that’s perfect for Father’s Day. Buy any top and bottom and receive a tech tank at no charge. Something for dad and maybe something for you?
What would dad be without his tools and his ability to know exactly how to fix pretty much anything. One of the things I love most about my own dad is how he is willing to jump into any project at my house. He always has the right tool for the job. One of the best things about Park Royal is that they truly have a store for everything. Home Depot in the Village at Park Royal is the place to pick up a new tool for your dad. Or maybe splurge on that Nest Thermostat you know he’s been eyeing up.

While the gifts are great, if your dad is anything like me, the thing he wants most is time with his kids. Bring your dad down to Park Royal this Father’s Day. Grab a drink at the Starbucks in The Village at Park Royal (this location features the Nitro Cold Brew – which is one of my favourites) and spend some time window shopping at Tesla.
And don’t forget about dinner! The Keg at Park Royal features a dining room filled with stunning art pieces from some private collections as well as a huge patio. The Keg has always been a part of special traditions for me and my family, and Father’s Day is no exception!

No matter the occasion, there’s one place to get together for it. For every hour, there’s Cocktail Hour at The Keg.
