VAM has you covered for Father’s Day!

Father’s Day is upon us and what better way to celebrate Dad than with some amazing products that are both functional and visually appealing?

MAKR Carry Goods creates sturdy and practical leather goods  such as wallets and keychains. For the Dad who appreciates great craftsmanship, these would be a fabulous gift. For the Dad who isn’t afraid to make a fashion statement, we recommend these Dolbeau ties. Handcrafted in Toronto from quality Japanese materials, these ties feel amazing and are stylish to boot!

We have a large selection of clothes for men, including the line 18 Waits, which is all made in Canada. We also carry Stanley & Sons aprons for the Dad who loves to grill (don’t all Dads love to grill?). We also carry N-Product which is a fantastic local company. These wooden cufflinks would be a great gift for any Dad!

If your dad is the outdoors type, a Pendleton blanket or Swiss Army Knife is always a solid gift idea since it’s both thoughtful and useful. We also carry Opinel knives, which would be ideal for a Dad who appreciates history, these knives have been around since the 1800’s!

VAM is also stocking an awesome range of stationary and MAKR notebooks as well as Filson bags. For the Father inspired by the nautical life, this limited edition art print by local company, Northern Army would be a great addition to an office or living room.

Pamper Dad without letting him know he’s being pampered with our line of Baxter of California products. From face washes to soap and deodorant, these products smell fresh and great while being ideal for sensitive skin. You can also update Dad’s cologne situation by getting him some Bravado Ea De Cologne by Baxter of California.

For the Dad with the home in mind, Na Coille cutting boards and products are fantastic. Made from local wood, these products are simple and luxurious looking. There’s a cutting board for the father chef and even iPad holders for the tech geek Dad. We also carry Kindling Quarterly, a magazine devoted to fathers and their children, a great read for Father’s Day.

We have recently started carrying Komono watches, made in Japan, these timepieces are unique and different. Truly conversation starters, these watches have a great price point as well. We also carry Garrett Leight California Opticals, ideal for the cool Dad who loves his shades. You can also ensure pops gets a great shave with this Baxter of California shave kit.
