Posted by Jim Connely on

As Father’s Day approaches, I wanted to share some local ideas for gifts. Below you will find some ideas. If I missed any local spots or you have suggestions, please send me an email at jim.connely56@gmail.com. Here is my list!

First and foremost, all Dad’s just love being a Dad and having family around.

Special ideas

  • Spend time with your Dad- it could be doing anything or nothing special, he will LOVE spending it with you!
  • Make your Dad a homemade card- draw your favorite things, draw your dad, have each one of your kids do this too! Don’t forget Grandpa’s too, they will really enjoy it!
  • Plan a Movie Night or watch his favorite show. If you go see a movie, hit https://www.phoenixmovies.net/home/theatres/kennedy-mall/004

 

Dress Dad up!

  • Graham’s Style Store (https://grahamsdbq.com) has SO many options! You could treat Dad to some socks, shorts, shirt, tie, cologne. The friendly staff at Graham’s Style Store will help you with any ideas. Recently, I purchased some awesome Kuhl shorts and pants and some SAXX running shorts! WOW! This Fulton & Roark fragrance smells amazing!

Drinks

 

Give some GREEN

  • I love plants and have a beautiful Amaryllis and cacti from Planted! They will even pot anything up for you! https://planteddbq.com/pages/about If you get him a cactus, it will be easy for him to care for too!

 

Coffee & More!

  • Get your Dad some Calico Bean Market flavored coffee, decaffeinated or caffeinated. Whole bean or ground, you will surely find something to delight him. You could get him some grilling spices, barbeque sauce or even a gift card! Teri can make you a basket or gift bag too!
  • Sometimes an in-person coffee is a nice treat for Dad. I would hit Jumble (https://www.jumblecoffee.com). They have gear for sale too. Monk’s Kaffee (across from the Calico Bean), Buzz on 2nd 

New Hobby

  • The Brew Haus has EVERYTHING you could ever dream about for your home brewer or newbie. Personally, I have used Jerry’s mixes and gear. He helped me when I had questions, which was a lifesaver. Your brewing father will love you or get your Dad a brewing kit!

 

Fishing

  • Take your Dad out fishing, he will LOVE spending time with you. When you catch something, post it online and show the world! I love shopping at the Bait Shack! They sell gift cards and have just about anything you need for fishing! https://www.facebook.com/BaitShackThe/

 

Fore!

  • Give your Dad the gift of golf! For something a breathtaking round of golf that will delight you, my favorite is the Galena Golf Course. You can’t go wrong with Lacoma or Bunker Hill either. All of these golf courses sell golf balls. Dads can always use more golf balls!

 

Grooming!

  • Fig Leaf has a TON of products to keep your Dad smelling great and looking amazing. Check out this Mistral Salted Gin line of soap, perfume, and body wash. Fig Leaf has hand cream, watches and so much more https://www.facebook.com/figleafdubuque
