While we think it’s always a good time to appreciate your dad, it’s the time of the year that they get a day to themselves! If you’re looking for something special and not just another generic T-shirt like last year, come to #DTJax for some Father’s Day shopping! We’ve done some of the work for you and have a gift guide that will suit whatever your dad enjoys!
For the Sports Fanatic Dad
If your dad likes sports, chances are we have a team in #DTJax! Whether it’s football with the Jaguars or Sharks, baseball with the Suns, basketball with the Giants or soccer with the Armada, Downtown is the place to get him a ticket to the game! Throw in a dinner before the game at any of Downtown’s great places to dine and you’ve got yourself a touchdown of a gift!
For the Pet-Enthusiast Dad
Does your dad truly subscribe to the “man’s best friend” theory? If so, get something both he and his companion can enjoy at BARK Downtown.
For the Scholarly Dad
Does your dad need another book? Whether he likes fiction, non-fiction or anything in between, Chamblin’s has everything you could ever look for.
For the Professional Dad
For the Thirsty Dad
Whether it’s bourbon, wine or beer that helps your dad unwind, you can pick up a bottle Downtown. Visit our friends at The Volstead for a nice bottle of whiskey or head to Wine Decadence to pick out some wine or local, craft beer.
For the Artsy Dad
Whether your dad likes to make art himself or just admire it, Downtown is a great place for a gift! Reddi-Arts has plenty of supplies, while if it’s art you’re looking for there are plenty of galleries to help you find that special piece as well. Look at our #DTJax gallery directory here to find what works best for you! You could also snag a ticket for a future trip to MOCA for a real work of art gift!
For the Dad with a Sweet Tooth
If it’s sweets that will make your dad happy, he’s in luck! Downtown has speciality brownies at Mocha Misk’i, addictive cookies from Coastal Cookies, gourmet popsicles at Hyppo, amazing chocolate at Peterbrooke Chocolatier and just about everything else under the sun at Sweet Pete’s Candy!
For the Foodie Dad
Take your dad out! Best to call ahead and make reservations, but check out Father’s Day brunch at these locations: HOBNOB, Candy Apple Café, Magnificat Cafe, Sbraga and Co, River City Brewing Company, Chart House.
No matter what your father enjoys, show him how much he means to you with a thoughtful gift from the heart of our city, #DTJax. For more ideas on where to take or what to get dad, check out our website!
