If you haven’t gotten Dad a gift yet, don’t fret. You can still snap up something cool for him that isn’t from Amazon Prime, we promise.
Places to shop for Dad:
If your Dad’s is fancy: Head to Martinpatrick3 for man-about-town-worthy apothecary, shoes, and accessories.
If your Dad loves to read: Hello, get him a gift card and a new book from Magers & Quinn. It’s even cuter if you throw the gift card in a corresponding mug.
If your Dad is outdoorsy: Check out what’s new at Midwest Moutaineering on the West Bank, a nature-Dad’s haven.
If your Dad is trendy: He needs something North-branded from Askov Finlayson to fit in with the other cool dads.
If your Dad loves beer: Spend quality time together and get pizza and some brews at Surly.
