Father’s Day Gift Guide

Written by Guest blogger, Anneliese Lawton

Another year, another Father’s Day struggle to find the perfect gift that says:

I love you.

I appreciate you.

And thanks for loving me (despite all the crazy shenanigans I pulled as a teen).

Whether it’s something your dad will actually use, something that’s meaningful, or a little bit of both, the businesses of Downtown Burlington will have just the right thing.

Check off all the boxes….

With the Dad Box from The Handmade House. Featuring nine local artisans and 11 products for only $75 (retail value of $125), this box will spoil Dad and Grandpa with unique, handmade, & local items. BBQ sauce, spices, candles, mugs, and more – you can even add on a fire pot and request customizations. They also have tons of other Father’s Day gift ideas in-store, click here for more!

Finally give dad the gift of time….

With “The Weekender” Bermont Solo watch from Harmony Jewellers. Inspired by pilot’s watches from the 1940’s, this watch is subtle and sophisticated. Gifting a watch pays tribute to time (something dad’s never feel like they have enough of) and even more so, is simple and provides purpose – a meaningful and functional gift all-in-one.

Soften dad’s beard…

With “Groom” by Sugarmoon Salon. This gentle yet effective low gathering formula can be used on both facial hair in skin (we’re all for a 2-in-1 gift!). It both softens beard hair while removing excess dirt and oils, leaving skin feeling cleaned and nourished. You can also elevate Dad’s beard game with a variety of products from New York New York Men’s Grooming Loungecheck out their complete list of products here.

Wrap dad in luxury…

With a JT Full Length Rob from Joseph Tassoni. With the world upside-down, it truly is the little moments and special rituals in our day that get us through.  And what can be more soothing to the soul than cocooning yourself in the softest and most luxurious dream robe! No promises dad won’t wear this luxuriously comfortable bamboo robe out in public. #sorrynotsorry. Shop JT’s complete Father’s Day gift ideas here.

Spruce up dad’s wardrobe…

With Jeff’s Guy Shoppe. From hats and belts to shoes, graphic T’s, swim trunks, and jeans – Jeff’s Guy Shoppe has it all. If you let them know what you have in mind, they can help you source the perfect gift and even wrap it in one of their awesome bags. Scrivener’s Men’s Apparel just down the street has for everything from casual weekend wear to office and formal wear plus anything in between!
