For the Dad who needs a break
You know your Dad works hard, so why not help him sit back and relax in style with a colourful, comfortable Muskoka chair? Perfect for an afternoon on the dock or in the backyard, he may just want to put his feet up and stay there all day. Throw in a new book and a six-pack of Dad’s favourite beverage for the ultimate stress-busting gift set.

For the foodie Dad
If your Dad loves to spend time in the kitchen, introduce him to life as a locavore with Emeril Lagasse’s new book, Farm to Fork: Cooking Local, Cooking Fresh. Your Dad will learn about cooking with locally grown ingredients for every season, and even find out how to make his own pasta and cheese at home. With recipes like Sweet Potato Ravioli and Cheesy Creole Tomato Pie, you may want to volunteer to be the official taste-tester for Dad’s latest creations. Add a grow-it-yourself herb garden to this gift bag so Dad can start growing fresh ingredients in his own backyard.
Available from HarperCollins Canada, $27.
