Feel – Handmade Leather Goods

You’ll find a variety of ideas and textures perfect for Dad from wallets, belts, and boots, to custom products like knife, phone, or tool cases. Keep it simple with minimalist styles or choose from etched designs, like a calming riverfront or intricate pattern. No matter what your Dad would love, know that Saleigh Mountain Co. designs and crafts each item by hand for a sturdy, exceptional finished product.

Hear – Cornhole at Tin Mill Brewery


Thud might not be the prettiest of sounds, but when you’re slinging bags with your old man and sipping handcrafted beer, it’s the telltale sound of good times. Treat Dad to a low key afternoon of authentic German brews and a cornhole game at Tin Mill Brewery. With a casual and friendly atmosphere like you’d find at a German pub, it’s the perfect spot to spend some quality time together and cheers to Dad.

See – Fresh Cut and Accoutrements

Pamper your favorite guy with a complimentary cut and shave with a Bearded Nail gift certificate. Known by locals for their straightforward hair cuts and beard trims, complete with hot towel facial, it’s a relaxing experience that leaves Dad looking fresh.
