Father’s Day Gift Guide: Seattle Small Businesses

We all know the importance of celebrating the Father figures in our life and after a year without many celebrations, let’s make this year’s Father’s Day the best one yet! We created a gift guide featuring local businesses, all within the greater Seattle area-- so you can find your dad a unique gift while supporting the small businesses that set our city apart. 

Here are a few ideas our team loves:

A new (or improved) look. Treat your dad to a fresh cut and style from Rudy's Barbershop! Rudy's has tons of locations across Seattle, with a variety of stylists trained in all aspects of hairstyling. From cutting edge styles to classic looks, Rudy's has your dad covered! They also carry an amazing line of products for all hair types, the Clay Spray is a fan favorite for summertime.

Something a little stronger. If dad is more of the whiskey type, Woodinville Whiskey is the gift to give. Homegrown and handmade at Omlin Family Farm in Quincy, Washington, you'll probably want to ask dad to share a glass with you.

The perfect summer footwear. Just in time for summer, check out Arvin Goods new collab with SeaVees. These two planet-friendly brands released this effortlessly cool collaboration that's perfect for all the rad dads out there. And as a bonus, 10% of all proceeds go to the Gaviota Coast Conservatory, a nonprofit aiming to preserve the California coastline.

Take him to brunch. Brunch isn't just for Mother's Day; dads love mimosas too! Check out Citizen in Queen Anne for a midday brunch. They have an excellent outdoor space and beer garden with an extensive food and drink menu. Be sure to try the “Citizen House Waffle" and "The Karen" cocktail. As an added bonus, they're dog-friendly!

A sweet treat. For the dad with a sweet tooth, look no further than the iconic Seattle chocolate shop, Fran's Chocolates. Snag a box of the single malt whiskey truffles or smoked salted caramels, and ask the staff to tie a bow in his favorite color. 

Uproot his skincare routine. Some dads love to golf, throw the football or take walks by the beach. Whatever they enjoy, make sure his skin is protected with the Sport Physical Face and Body Block sunscreen from MadisonMD. This dermatologist-formulated, lightweight sunscreen stays put through any outdoor activity. Follow @drbrandith_skin for an upcoming Father's Day sale!
