Fact: dads are hard to shop for. And with Father’s Day just around the corner (Sunday, June 20th, to be exact), we went ahead and got a jump start on some great ideas for him from local businesses here in Gainesville, FL. You’re sure to find the perfect gift to celebrate the paternal figure(s) in your life on this list!
NEW SHOES FROM GAINESVILLE RUNNING & WALKING
Is dad more of a runner or walker? Either way, he could use supportive shoes while he’s pounding the pavement or just taking Buster on a walk around the block. You’ll find an incredible selection and knowledgeable staff to help you find the perfect sole-mate for dad at this locally-owned store.
An excellent gift for the dad who loves to break a sweat. He’s sure to enjoy this high-intensity, low-impact workout. Also, if he is the competitive type–he will love the Performance Ride, a class that motivates you through technology, group challenges, and rider competitions!
JUICY SEAFOOD DINNER AT MR. & MRS. CRAB
Surprise dad with a delicious seafood dinner at Mr. & Mrs. Crab! This locally owned restaurant features Asian-inspired, Louisiana-style seafood boils that are finger-licking good! From crawfish to scallops, lobster to sausage, it will be a delicious meal to remember.
INDULGE DAD’S SWEET SIDE
Does dad have a sweet tooth? Whether he enjoys caramel apples, truffles, fudge, or ice cream, treat him to something from Kilwins. And don’t forget, Wednesdays are BOGO on all ice cream purchases!
BEST IN CLASS BBQ DINNER
Could dad use a break from the grill? Treat him to the best slow-cooked BBQ in town, without him needing to lift a finger! 4Rivers Smokehouse offers fan favorites like Angus brisket, pulled pork, and fall-off-the-bone ribs. Your tastebuds will thank us later!
