With Father’s Day coming up this Sunday, we gathered some of our favorite gift ideas from supporting local Black-owned restaurants and shops, to finding the Father Figure in your life their next favorite book.
LOCAL RESTAURANT TAKEOUT
Since the father figures in our lives do so much for us already, treat them to a night off with delicious provisions from a local restaurant in the area; all three of the following restaurants are Black-owned and have take-out options available.
LOCAL RESTAURANT GIFT CARDS
The gift that gives both now AND later—as many restaurants begin to re-open in the coming weeks, gift your Dad the luxury of dining at one of the following Black-owned restaurants either on location or to take food to go!
WINE FROM A LOCAL SHOP
Let your Dad know that there’s nothing you want for him more than to kick back, relax and enjoy a nice summer evening with a glass of wine. If you’re in the Boston area, The Urban Grape is a Black-owned business that offers remote ordering, delivery and personalized service; Wasik’s Cheese Shop in Wellesley has everything you need to WOW your dad with exceptional charcuterie options and wine pairings to go with! If you find yourself on the Cape for the Summer season, be sure to check out Cape Cod Winery to gift Dad some locally made wine from this small, family-run business.
BOOKS FROM A LOCAL BOOKSTORE
We firmly believe that you can never go wrong with a great book. Frugal Books is a Black-owned bookshop in the city whose motto is to change minds one book at a time; if you’re local to Cape Cod, Eight Cousins in downtown Falmouth has excellent Father’s Day specific book suggestions so you can shop with ease.
SUPPORT LOCAL IN YOUR AREA
During these unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever to keep our local businesses afloat by supporting them in any way we can. By shopping local for this Father’s Day, you are likely helping a family-run business, giving back to the local community AND gifting Dad a more unique gift that may not be found elsewhere.
