Gift guide for Father’s Day

Not sure what to get dad this year? Let me help get your shopping list started!


Clothes: There are a number of great downtown men’s clothing stores. With stores like EPH Apparel, Hanford Drewitt, or International Clothiers, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.

Cigars/Alcohol: If your dad enjoys either of these things, Fenton’s at The Forks Market is the place to buy it. Choose from a wide variety of cognacs, cigars, and liqueurs.

Beers & bonding time: If your dad loves nothing more than a cold brew, why not get him tickets for Tap In beer tour this summer! Not sure where to take him out for a drink? The Tap In tour takes you to four different pubs in one night, tasting and trying new pints at every stop. First tour runs on June 29; book your tickets here:


Team Gear: Help your dad support our home teams and get him something from the Goldeyes Souvenir Store or Jets Gear. Or if these aren’t his teams, head over to Uptown Sport Cards and Collectibles for a large selection of gifts for dad.

Athletics: Maybe your dad likes to get out and get moving. If he does, you can find the perfect gift for him at either Mountain Equipment Co-op or Foot Locker in Portage Place.

Or perhaps you want to take dad out for a nice dinner! Well, downtown has tonnes of places he might enjoy:

The Keg Steakhouse & Bar: The Keg is a guaranteed great meal! For the steak- and seafood-loving dad, The Keg is sure to please!

Prairie 360: Get a delicious meal and a fantastic view at Prairie 360. This will be a dining experience your dad will never forget!

Pony Corral: For the Winnipeg-loving dad, Pony Corral offers a can’t-miss dining experience. With great food and plentiful portions, you and dad are sure to leave with full stomachs!

Danny’s All Day Breakfast and Brunch: For the breakfast-loving dad! Give your dad the gift of choosing from all his breakfast favourites at any time of the day.

Beer hall

The Common in The Forks Market: A venue that’s fun for the whole family, but dad can still drink a beer or two. The Common is the new craft beer and wine kiosk’s in the newly renovated “Food Hall” at The Forks Market. Check out their new communal dining space and enjoy a day at the Forks.

This is only a handful of options to help you celebrate Father’s Day. With all that downtown has to offer, you’re sure to find the perfect gift or experience to show your dad just how much he’s appreciated!
