Vancouver Shopping: Father’s Day Weekend #onRobson

At least one day a year we put aside time to celebrate the father figures in our lives. This year Father’s Day, the day celebrating dad bods and dad jokes, falls on Sunday, June 19th. Make sure to show the hard working, funny, supporting, and ultimately loving father figure in your life just how much he means to you with our tips.

The RSBA Executive Director, Muneesh Sharma, took an afternoon stroll with his daughter Eva and visited businesses where he’d like to get a gift from. So we’ve got you covered with the best insider list of awesome restaurants and the most coveted gift guide so you can plan the perfect Father’s Day #onRobson!

One of our top picks are the trendy shoes from Steve Madden. Choose from stylish men’s casual shoes like sneakers, tennis shoes and loafers. Dress shoes are also the perfect way to elevate your style, whether you’re headed out for a fantastic dinner at a restaurant or heading to a wedding at an upscale venue.

Sunglasses are another piece for summer you can’t live without, and Bailey Nelson offers the BEST sunnies you’ve ever seen! The rounder style is very on-trend for this season and you can also choose from several colour options.

At Plenty you can find amazing fashionable shoptions for dad. A versatile layer for the active dad to wear for everything – from everyday errands to casual work style – never goes out of style.

Well, what’s a shopping sesh without some good bites in between? DYK family-friendly Red Robin has some of the tastiest burgers in the city? Try it by pairing with one of their decadent milkshakes and you’ll get what we’re saying… even Eva couldn’t resist!

After a very productive day of shopping around with dad, Muneesh and Eva stopped at Little Café on Robson for a little pick-me up. This café offers freshly baked pastries and local roasted beans for the coffee lovers. Yum!

Take some time this weekend to enjoy with your family around Robson Street. Our Outdoor Summer Market in partnership with The New Gen Collective is happening every Saturday until the end of August at Bute-Robson Plaza from 11 am to 6 pm, and on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays at Jim Deva Plaza as well. Join our weekly giveaway for a chance to win $300 in gift cards to some of our fave shops #onRobson. Happy Father’s Day!
