Last-Minute Home Gift Ideas for Dad
Don’t forget, Father’s Day is Sunday. Here are some locally sourced goods he’ll love.
If you’re scrambling for a last-minute Father’s Day gift (it’s this Sunday, June 21, by the way), we’ve got you covered. For the dad who likes to chill at home — which is basically all of us right now — here are some cool, locally sourced home and lifestyle goods he’s sure to love.
Whiskey Dad Kit
You can’t go wrong with a Whiskey Dad Kit from House15143 in Sewickley. The stylish package includes bourbon-soaked cherries from Jack Rudy Cocktail Co., an oversized ice cube mold and a whiskey bar tabletop book by Aaron Goldfarb. The kit is available for local drop-off and curbside delivery.
Cartel Supply Co. Soap
The dad in your life will love these natural, handcrafted and vegan-friendly soaps by Pittsburgh-based brand Cartel Supply Co. Whether he’s into hints of sandalwood, cedar, vanilla or grapefruit, there’s a soap for that. If you’re in a hurry, the soaps are sold locally at Rue Boutique in McCandless. Dad hugs are going to smell so good!
Steel City Salt Co.
For the dad who likes to grill (or just eat), hook him up with this collection of smoked and spicy salts, rubs, blends, and imports from Steel City Salt Co., which has storefront in Millvale and the Strip District. Also, make a note of the Black & Gold blend. One of Steel City Salt’s bestsellers, it uses hickory smoked salt as a base and includes freshly ground garlic, smoked paprika and two styles of black pepper.
Dad in the Kitchen Kit
With all the barbecuing dad will be doing thanks to the new spices you got him, it makes sense to gift him a cutting board and knife as well. Ton Pottery in Millvale has put together nine different kits for Father’s Day, including this “Dad in the Kitchen” package featuring a damascus kitchen knife from Steelworks, handmade cutting board by Pittsburgh-based Hanna Dausch and four small ramekin bowls crafted at Ton Pottery.
Songbird Artistry Gift Basket
Because a real eating theme seems to be emerging here, let Songbird Artistry in Lawrenceville continue to do the work for you with a gift basket featuring any two flavors of olive oil or balsamic vinegar by Pittsburgh-based Olive & Marlowe. Songbird Artistry — which sells handmade gifts by local artisans — will package it with a personal message from you, plus a recipe for seasoned chicken with veggies.
