Father’s Day is Sunday! (Seriously, it is…) Here’s a roundup of gift ideas for dear old dad – and you won’t even have to leave the neighborhood to get them. #shoplocal
The Outdoor Dad – With being cooped up for months, this dad wants to get outdoors (while social distancing, of course). American Provisions has a Father’s Day picnic basket filled with meat, cheese, snacks and wine – perfect for taking to the park, the beach or in the yard! You can order the basket here!
The Well-Groomed Dad The well-groomed dad did not wake up like this, it takes work! You can put together a day of very masculine pampering gift card at Nurture with customized facials and waxing. We promise it won’t be anything like The 40 Year Old Virgin.
The Fit Dad Does the dad in your life start every day with a protein shake or quick 6 mile run? We’re not suggesting you do anything crazy like go for that ridiculous run with him, but treating him to a workout gift card is a great idea! Whether it’s a cycling class at The Handle Bar, some vinyasa at Radiant Yoga or bootcamp at Motivate Fitness you can find the perfect class for a fit dad and even your lazy ass.
BBQ Loving Dad Lincoln is cooking up some BBQ for you to bring to dad on Sunday! Enjoy a platter of beef ribs and smoked wings for $50! Also includes sides couscous salad, fingerling potatoes, jalapeño cornbread, and cinnamon rolls! For another $15 you can add a four pack of Lord Hobo Boom Sauce. Place your order before Saturday at 7pm. Call (617) 765-8636.
The Cool Dad I’m saying this in a mocking, Amy Poehler in Mean Girls “cool mom” kind of way, I’m being earnest. Anyhoo, go get the dad in your life a pair of Ray-Bans at Wink right on Broadway. Can you even be cool without a pair of Ray-Bans? I don’t think you can, and I say this as someone who isn’t cool, and doesn’t have a pair of Ray-Bans.
The HGTV Dad A man’s home is his castle and it should be decorated accordingly. New home décor spot Deirfiur Home has the perfect home accessories and finishing touches whatever your dad’s favorite HGTV show is…hopefully it’s nothing with Chip and Joanna Gaines because the church they tithe their earnings to supports conversion therapy. Deirfiur Home is fully stocked with Swig 12 oz sweat free vacuum insulated wine, beer and combo coolers! Dad’s drinks will stay chilled for hours! They even have ones that looks like a golf ball. Cheers dad! Deirfuir is also creating last minute Father’s Day baskets – perfect for grabbing and going!
Beer Lover Dad This dad loves his beer! And not just a can of Bud Light but really good craft beer! Why not surprise him with a gift card to Dorchester Brewing! Their outdoor patio and roof deck are open!
Cocktail Lover Dad This dad loves a good cocktail! Neatly Nested has oversized copper mugs – perfect for Moscow Mules. Pair with some nips of vodka and some ginger beer and you’ve got yourself a gift! Better yet, buy your dad a who bottle of vodka distilled right here in Southie at Grand Ten!
Every Dad Every dad would love some swag and a gift card to one of the many South Boston restaurants now reopened. You can check out the roundup here. Not only will you be showing dad you love him, but you’l be supporting our neighborhood restaurants!
Southie Loving Dad Caught in Southie still has limited edition swag available – like hoodies ($40) and t-shirts ($20).
