I’m an only child and was a little girl who loved all the girly girl things. This posed somewhat of a problem for my dad who is an outdoorsy type of man. He really couldn’t get into my ballet classes! Instead, he bonded with me by including me in the hobbies he loved.
My dad is a hockey fan and he had me in skates as soon as I could walk. Some of my most cherished moments are the times in which we skated all afternoon at the skating rink across from our house. My dad was a great skater and being a kid I thought he was definitely NHL quality! I remember being so proud when the high school students wanted him to join in on there games. He also took me to hockey games and even stood outside of the old Montreal forum so I could could get Patrick Roy to sign my studded 90’s jean jacket.
My dad’s second love is fishing. Obviously, he made sure to teach his little girl how throw a fishing line and even pull the guts out of a fish! Yup, you read write my dad made me do that! Still, those are the memories I cherish because that’s how we bonded while I was growing up.
On Father’s Day, I always try to get my dad a little something. Like most men, my dad isn’t that thrilled to receive flowers. He isn’t the easiest person to buy for either. To be honest, picking out a present for him for special occasions is not the easiest! He has everything he wants and knows what he likes. That’s why I like to purchase gift cards for my dad, so he can get exactly what he wants. I know my dad would love a gift card from Sportchek.
This Father’s Day there is a fantastic gift card promotions going on. Safeway, Katz, Metro and Sobey‘s are offering select gifts cards at discounts. Some the gift cards include – Sportchek, iTunes, Spafinder, Roots, The Keg and more. I love when gift card’s go on sale. Is there any better value?
