Airbnb Online Experiences

Prices Vary

Airbnb Online Experiences are the perfect gift for anyone looking to learn a new skill or try out a new experience (even if it is from the comfort of their own home). There are numerous class options available, including this class on propagating plants (as pictured above) or this homemade pasta cooking class.

State Parks Permit

Prices Vary ($35 in MN)

For the dad who loves to spend time outdoors, gift them a state parks permit. While prices and details vary by state, in Minnesota, the year-round permit provides unlimited visits to all state parks and recreation areas.

Hot Sauce

Zab’s Hot Sauce


Spice up dad’s cooking routine with Zab’s hot sauce. This is the gift for the dads in your life who can’t get enough heat and flavor in their food. Zab’s flavor profile is versatile and is recommended for foods like meat, veggies, soups, eggs, and tacos.

ENO DoubleNest Hammock


Give the gift of outdoor relaxation with a portable, comfortable hammock. This high-strength hammock is breathable and packs down to the size of a grapefruit, so it can be transported to a campground or the nearest park with ease.

A Donation

Amount Varies

There’s always good reason to provide support to others and to donate to a cause your dad cares about. If you’re looking to donate to current rebuilding initiatives in the Twin Cities, or to an organization that specifically supports BIPOC individuals and communities, and you can find a list of options compiled here.

Maison Noir Pinot Gris


For the wine lovers in your life, order a bottle (or three) of Maison Noir’s Other People’s Pinot Gris. If Pinot Gris isn’t their thing, Maison Noir has a selection of other wine varieties to choose from, and they all sound delicious.

Warby Parker Hayes Sunglasses

Red Bay Coffee East Fourteenth


Make mornings easier by giving the gift of coffee, whether you gift your dad’s favorite local blend or something new to him entirely. Might we recommend this dark roast option from Red Bay Coffee?

Their Favorite Food

Prices Vary

Make dad their favorite meal or order takeout from a local restaurant and throw together an afternoon picnic. As a reminder to us all (myself included), gifts don’t have to be complicated to mean a lot.


Father's Day Gift Ideas | Sunscreen

Beautycounter Counterman Oil-Free Face Lotion


For the guy who wants to dip their toe into a skincare regimen but doesn’t quite know where to start, give them a daily, lightweight moisturizer (or another product that’s catered to their skin type) to test the waters.

Knife Set

Shun Classic 2-Piece Prep Knife Set


A good, quality knife is a necessary item for any home chef, but kitchen tools can be expensive and tend to be low on the list of things a person wants to buy for themselves. If the dad in your life loves to cook, treat him to a really great knife set, like this one from Shun.

The Gift of Time


Let dad sleep in one morning while you take the kids out for an adventure (and, if you’re feeling generous, bring back donuts or pastries from their favorite bakery to have for breakfast). Or give them the gift of unencumbered time to do something they love, like spending an afternoon biking.

The Brooklyn Circus BKc “3D B” T-Shirt


Give dad a tee from The Brooklyn Circus to add to his rotation for the summer months ahead. This shirt is made in the USA and made of 100% cotton for ultimate, breathable comfort.

Please reconsider recommending Beautycounter products. Beautycounter is an MLM, which have predatory practices, are extremely unethical, and prey on vulnerable people like people of low SES and single mothers. John Oliver has a great video on the danger of MLMs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6MwGeOm8iI
Please don’t use your far-reaching platform to support or advertise for MLM products.
