And here it is again – our long-awaited Father’s Day Luxury Gift Guide!

If you’d like to find an ultimate, luxury item for a Father (or Father figure) in your life, then look no further. FAJO team has compiled another in-depth list, and today we share our Top 7!

1. Ninja Foodi Smart XL Pro

BBQ season may be in full swing, but you can make someone lucky and gift them this item – so they could have a BBQ all year! Ninja Foodi Smart is an exceptional 7-in-1 indoor grill and griddle with a smart cook system. It also features a 3.8L air fryer. You can roast, bake, dehydrate and broil – and, best of all, it’s completely portable!

Providing edge-to-edge high heat and a temperature control system, this powerful grill is customizable, allowing you to switch from griddling and grilling to air frying with the touch of a button. With the 260°C independently powered grill grate, you get direct, edge-to-edge high heat for steakhouse grilling, griddle searing and more.

The 12” flat top BBQ griddle interlocks with the grate to harness its direct high heat. Precise temperature controls allow for fast, even cooking without hot or cold spots. You also have the option of hood down or hood up cooking: keep the hood down to add cyclonic air for fast, even, high-heat cooking, surround searing, crisping and melting; or keep the hood up for intense high-heat searing and flavours with direct bottom heat only.

The Smart Cook System is also amazing: it has 4 smart protein settings, 9 customizable doneness levels and the Foodi™ Smart Thermometer that lets you achieve the perfect doneness from rare to well done at the touch of a button. This grill grate is perfect for family gatherings or small parties, and fits 6 steaks, mains and sides at the same time, and more. The flat top BBQ griddle allows you to cook a whole platter of nachos, 4 sandwiches or 6 pancakes. It’s easy-to-clean, PTFE/PFOA-free and the cooking pot is dishwasher safe. All in all – a great Father’s Day gift idea!

2. Emma Original Mattress

What can possibly be better than a good night’s sleep? Emma Original Mattress is an award-winning product that was designed specifically with Canadian sleep preferences in mind. How cool is that? The Emma Original is loved by back, side and stomach sleepers alike. It’s been Canada’s most-awarded and the World’s #1 best-selling mattress for a reason!

Picture a plush, hotel-quality, pillowtop and washable UltraDry® cover that’s moisture-wicking, breathable and just feels good to touch. The best sleep is the one where you wake up feeling rested and rejuvenated. With Emma Original Mattress, you will feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud made up of 10” premium memory foam. If you share a bed with a partner, and you happen to be a light sleeper, you won’t have to worry about waking up because your partner keeps tossing and turning. The motion-isolating foam is designed to minimize movement and weight disturbance to ensure one side of the bed’s turbulence doesn’t affect the other side at all!

The mattress also features breathable AIRGOCELL® comfort layer that helps keep you cool all-night long. Equally, the 3-Zoned HALO® memory foam transition layer provides targeted pressure-relief for improved spinal alignment, and optimal support for your shoulders, back and hips. The design also features a durable HRX Supreme® base layer that has over 100 supportive points that distribute your weight evenly to reduce pressure on the body. Another very important feature that is environment and health-related: Emma’s top-of-the-line foams are all CertiPUR-US® certified, meaning, they are made without any ozone-depleting chemicals and safe from VOCs, formaldehyde and phthalates.
