Phoenix With Kids Local Gift Guide: Father’s Day Edition
Our Mother’s Day local gift guide was such a success, here we are again with a Father’s Day edition. This list is a unique combination of local companies offering items the Dads in your life need.
Anyone else feel like Dads are hard to shop for? One year I got him new boxers, socks and shirts, just to slow him down opening presents till he got to the big one. He didn’t notice they were from me and the kids, and thought they were from his Mom. One year I hid a giant box in our garage and made up a story about it being for the kids. So when it came time to open he was so confused. I could easily have the kids make him some drawings and call it for the year. Especially this year when the kids can’t go shopping. However I like to try to be unique. Or practical. What does Dad NEED that he doesn’t get for himself. A new pair of work shoes may not be the fanciest gift, but when you know your husband’s feet hurt, why not?

They will also deliver and set it up for you.

Father’s Day is a great day to feed Dad all of his favorite meals. Ask him what his favorite resteraunts are and look up their take out, pick up, curbside or patio dining options. Here are a few locals we love:
Don’t forget to take advantage of your kids art skills and have them create something original for Dad. There is still time to send something to Grandpas, Uncles and the other Dads in your life.
