Find the Perfect Last Minute Father’s Day Gift at Breakaway Experiences
Find the Perfect Last-Minute Father’s Day Gift
They say that any man can be a father but, it takes someone very special to be a dad. They are there for protection, have toes to stand and dance on, and to kill the spiders.
Among many other things, of course.
That is why they deserve to be spoiled on Father’s Day, but sometimes, it can be tricky to find the perfect gift.
Darasak is an incredible father to our girls. He helps them with so much and does so much around the house too.
When it comes to gifts, though, he already has most of what he wants. What Gabs and Mimi love to do for him is to make him a gift and then leave it to me to plan an experience.
So, What Do You Get Him?
If you have a dad in your life that has everything or is an adventure junkie, Breakaway Experience is the way to go!
If you’re like me this year, it’s been a HECTIC June so far, and I haven’t had a chance to get a gift yet. No worries, I’ve compiled some of the coolest experiences that you can buy Dad this year.
There are a couple of things that most men love, that’s meat (hello bacon and jerky) and adventure.
Apart from finding an experience for him, get him a man bouquet from Manly Man Company. Sticks and sheets of jerky carved into the shape of flowers and roses that are presented inside a pint glass or beer mug “vase.”Visit the website and find a gift set for him.
Stunt Car Driving Experience
Dan can learn how to drive a car like the stuntmen in the movies. He can experience the thrill of making a car do some fun, crazy stunts. This Stunt Driving Experience provides the cars, professional stunt drivers, and a safe environment at Country Heritage Park (Milton) to do J-Turns, Reverse 180s, and Slalom Driving.
BBQ Smoking Class
Dad can take his backyard BBQ game up a notch in this fun, hands-on BBQ Smoking Class. He’ll learn the low and slow method to produce mouth watering, fall off the bone meat every time he BBQs!
Cowboy Cookout and Horseback Ride
Dan can enjoy Banff the cowboy way! He can take horseback (or wagon ride) along the base of Sulphur Mountain, enjoy a BBQ feast western style, and return along the Bow River banks.
This adventure is perfect for a unique family excursion in the spectacular wilds of Banff National Park.
Winnipeg Wine & Food Pairing Tour
Enjoy great wine with artisanal food pairings during the 5-hour, 5-course progressive Winnipeg Wine & Food Pairing Tour. You will discover the city’s best culinary gems as you visit 3 epicurean establishments.
Halifax Craft Beer Tour
Dad can jump on the Beer Bus and discover the mouth-watering world of craft beer on a three-hour guided Halifax Craft Beer Tour. He can sit back and relax as he is brought to four stops including breweries, brew pubs, and beer bars/pubs.
Introductory Flight Experience
Dad can feel the exhilaration as he takes the controls, learns to fly and experience flight from the pilot’s seat with an Introductory Flight Experience over the Coast Mountains. Purchase this experience before Father’s Day and Dad can bring a passenger along for free.
Ottawa Biplane Ride Over Parliament Hill
This is the perfect experience for anyone who has always want to take a trip back in time to the golden age of aviation. Strap on your aviator’s cap and goggles and get a bird’s eye view from the open cockpit of a vintage 1939 WACO UPF-7 biplane.
Experiences, Not Things!
There you have it folks, now that you are armed with these ideas, you are sure to give Dad the most PERFECT gift this Father’s Day.
I always say spend money on experiences, not things and I still stand by that! Believe me, it makes for a much more memorable experience.
I hope you can find a last-minute Father’s Day gift with this list.
