Top Gifts for a Cottage Dad

15 Jun 2016 Cool Stuff

The best gift for a cottage Dad is one that he would love to have but normally wouldn’t buy for himself.

Dad keeps the cottage in good condition and ensures all the essential equipment is running smoothly. A good Father’s Day present could be a tool that makes his life easier at the lake. You might also consider buying a unique gift for Dad that is connected to a cottage hobby.

Here are a few special cabin gift ideas for your father to show how much you appreciate all his hard work at the summer retreat.

Magnetic wristband

How often do nuts, bolts, washers, and screws fall into the grass, between the boards on the deck, or into the lake just as Dad is about to complete a little project?

This magnetic wristband is perfect for your favourite cottage handyman.

Cottage hammock

Dad deserves a break once in a while and a hammock is the ideal gift to help him to relax at the cottage. Why not add in the handy beverage holder?

Laser measure

If your cottage Dad likes to build decks, docks, tool sheds, or is planning an addition to the cabin a laser measure is a must-have tool.

Breakfast sandwich maker

Is Dad in charge of breakfast on Sunday morning at the cottage? If so, he will love this sandwich maker for putting together the perfect english muffin, ham, egg, and cheese sandwiches for the whole family.


Most cottage Dads are wildlife fans. This set of binoculars and a book of North American birds will get hours of use at the lake.

Me and My Dad book from a cottage kid

Dad teaches us all kinds of important life skills when we are at the lake. This is a great book for Dad to read with the little ones while hanging out in the gazebo.
