When is Father’s Day? It’s this Sunday, June 16. And if you’re anything like us, you’ve no doubt procrastinated on that Dad’s Day gift. Have no fear! We know dads can be hard to shop for, so we’ve made you a list of the seven best gifts from right here in the Burg! There’s no need to wait on shipping, just go grab it from around the corner and support a local business! It’s the best of both worlds!

1. Kahwa Gift Card

What person doesn’t want coffee?? Give dad the gift of caffeine and early morning peace of mind with a Kahwa gift card. Kahwa is running a special deal for Father’s Day. You can buy a $15 Kahwa card for $10! That’s $5 free! Don’t miss out. This deal is only on until Sunday.

Nothing screams “Dad” more than a bottle of whiskey. Head on over to American Freedom Distillery on 5th Ave S and 22 St S to pick up a bottle of their incredible small batch bourbon. You can also shop from home by going to their website.

3. Brunch or Lunch at Cassis

Are you more of a spend-time-with-dad instead of a gift-giver? We’ve got you covered there too. Lucky for all of us, Cassis’s Two Weeks of Gratitude covers Father’s Day. Take Dad out to lunch or brunch and get 50% off your bill!

4. Growler from a Local Brewery

We have no shortage of local breweries here in the Burg. Head over to 3 Daughters, Cycle, or Green Bench to pick up a growler of Dad’s favorite beer. If you’re feeling adventurous, 3 Daughters is having a Father’s Day celebration. 3 Daughter Bites will have 2 options Dad will love: Ribs, baked beans, corn on the cob, and a drink for $14 or Pulled Pork Sandwich, baked beans, corn on the cob, and a drink for $12.

5. Accessories from Atlas Body + Home

Atlas has a Pride event this Thursday, but that’s not stopping them from helping you with all your Father’s Day gifts. They stocked up on their ties, wallets, belts, hats, and bags as well as running BOGO deals on printed shirts!

6. Merchant St. Pete Merch

If you want something to do with dad, you can book a class with Merchant St. Pete. We are super into their Craft Beer, Chocolate, and Cheese event. Five courses of local craft beer, cheese, and local chocolate lovingly paired to delight your tastebuds? We’re in!

7. A Coast Bike St. Pete Membership

Coast is a service that makes public bicycles available for shared use to individuals on a short-term basis. The bikes can be unlocked from one station and returned to any station in the system, making bike share ideal for short, one-way trips. They have pay-as-you go, monthly, and annual plans!

8. Gift of Golf
