Find Cool Gifts for Dad in Toronto
Father’s Day is just a few days away. If you have left your gift shopping until the last minute, we have some cool ideas on gifts for dad from some of our favourite men’s retailers in Toronto.
Cuffwear is a Toronto-based company, started by former Toronto Bay Street banker Chris Zownir in 2005. He left his corporate gig to fill the gap he saw in creative office wear. His company makes casual, classic and playful cufflinks that help his former colleagues complete a look, express themselves, and make a statement.
We think these Bull Bear – Black Cufflinks finished in black enamel with rhodium plating are super cool. They are the perfect gift for the banker dad. It comes in an individual gift box. The company swears by their top quality materials, premium packaging and manufacturing. In fact, they ensure they will last for years to come and will replace the or give you a full refund if you are not happy.

This French fashion house for men was brought to Canada by restaurateur Yannick Bigourdan of Nota Bene and Carbon Bar. His passion for the brand’s high quality products at a single price in a luxurious environment convinced him that he could successfully introduce the retailer to the Canadian market.
These Classic Armagnac Patina (leather) Ankle Boots with single boot strap, upper smooth “one cut”, full grain calf leather could certainly make any dad look like a million bucks, and they can be worn all year-round with a variety of looks.
