Father's Day

Father’s Day is just around the corner! Still looking for the perfect gift? Forget big box stores and generic, last-minute nick-nacks. This year, surprise a dad in your life with something he actually wants from right here in the D.

Detroit City Distillery, Two James

Detroit knows a thing or two about whiskey. If you’re planning on celebrating Father’s Day with family, why not show up with the best the city has to offer? Two James Spirits and Detroit City Distillery craft their libations using locally-sourced ingredients and bottle them up like works of art. There’s nothing better than a gift you can enjoy together. 


This Detroit clothing company has gained national attention for its rugged, built-for-anything apparel. Whether your dad enjoys working on the yard, in the shop or just lounging around, Carhartt offers comfortable, durable pieces for any occasion. Check out their overalls, fitted work pants and awesome hat selection.


For the refined dad, Shinola is your one-stop shop. You can find everything from high-end watches and leather goods to pens, stationary and even bicycles. Located in the heart of Downtown, the Woodward Avenue storefront offers engraving services, allowing you to personalize your purchase and give a gift that is truly one of a kind.

The Detroit Record Club

There’s a trend that must be addressed – countless dads with massive record collections and no record player. This year, give him a reason to dust off the old Zeppelin, Stones and Beatles and remember why vinyl is still king. Along with an expertly-curated selection of new and used records, The Detroit Record Club has all the equipment necessary to get his albums spinning again.

Detroit GrillKing

For those looking to go above and beyond, Detroit GrillKing offers the ultimate Father’s Day gift – custom-built barrel barbecues. Since 1982, Robert Felton has provided Metro Detroiters with handmade grills that look amazing and cook to perfection. A pit master himself, he’s an expert in crafting the tool that brings loved ones together all summer long. Be sure to give this gift in the morning so Dad can break it in at the Father’s Day barbecue.
