Dads everywhere claim they’re easy to shop for but we all know that’s not always the case. We did the groundwork so you can spend your time more efficiently — celebrating him!
For the Classy Dad
Dad’s cocktail creativity will shine with a drop of bitters from Bittercube. Slow-crafted with local botanicals by two bev industry vets, these bitters will add a flavorful spin to his go-to drink. The assortment comes with six flavors including Cherry Bark Vanilla, floral Bolivar, citrus-forward Jamaican No. 2 and classic orange. A recipe card featuring seven classic cocktails will help him narrow down the prospects. | $54/6-pack
For the Dad On the Go
Got a dad who’s always running off to work on a new project? Send him on his way with 64 ounces of the good stuff to enjoy when he finally halts his hustle. Goose Creek Growler Co.’s Peacemaker growler is handcrafted with high-fire premium stoneware sturdy enough for the journey. All he has to do is pour in his favorite brew and seal it up, ensuring carbonation for 24 hours once opened. Features a grippable “brass knuckle” handle for simple sippin’. | $65-75
For the Outdoorsy Dad
Support pops as he has always supported his family – perhaps quite literally with GCI Outdoor’s Wilderness Backpacker chair. Whether Father’s Day is a production of hiking and camping, or he just wants to sit on the patio with a cold one, this fully-equipped seat will meet his needs. It’s carry-convenient with backpack straps, while a mesh backrest, adjustable pillow and wooden armrests keep it comfy. And obvi there’s a built-in cup holder. Priorities. | $60
For the Foodie Dad
Father’s Day isn’t complete without a meal fit for the grill master himself. From Portland, Olympia Provisions’ Sausage Fest! gift set includes all of those tasty links you’ve heard him rave about but never really understood. Bratwurst, Frankfurter, Smoked Kielbasa, Italian sausage and Kasekrainer come ready for grilling — plus two beer koozies so you can get educated with a chilled beer in hand. | $45
For the Dad Who Has Everything
Some dads insist they don’t want presents. In that case, nothing beats the gift of quality time. Take him out for a relaxing experience of sipping in wine country alongside some sweet tunes. Concerts take place Father’s Day weekend at a variety of the region’s top wineries. In Oregon, cruise to Eugene’s Silvan Ridge Winery. Woodinville’s Chateau Ste. Michelle or Goldendale’s Maryhill Winery both host musicians in Washington; and Hester Creek is the place to be if you find yourself on the other side of the border, in Oliver, British Columbia.
