June sure is a fun month around here! Not only is the arrival of summertime in two short weeks, but we get to celebrate all of the special dads in our lives just one weekend prior. Talk about the ultimate summer kickoff! In previous years we’ve shown dad just how much we love him by creating a build your own Bloody Mary bar in the backyard, treating him to a fancy dinner complete with Father’s Day dress shirt folded napkins, and just spending good old quality time together. Nothing beats a sunny day celebrating someone you love.
Since we all know that dads (and men in general) can be tricky to shop for, we created a gift guide that covers everything from the sporty dad to the dad that spends his weekends perfecting his grilling techniques. If you’re still in the market for the perfect Father’s Day gift, keep scrolling to see if our gift guide has something that will pique your dad’s interest…
