There are loads of wonderful gift ideas and things to do to show your love for dad while in southern Indiana.
Is your dad or grandad a self-proclaimed foodie, a dapper dresser, bourbon connoisseur, outdoorsman, or music lover? We have several unique ways to show him some Father’s Day love to put a smile on his face!
For Dad, the Dapper Dresser
Keep dad in style with the latest fashions found at Him Gentleman’s Boutique. This dedicated men’s boutique has all the latest seasonal trends for all body types and styles. From casual to business wear, be sure to drop in to keep dad “fly” and ready for any occasion.
If thrifting is more dad’s style, take him in search of gently used clothes, shoes, gadgets, and games at Eureka Stuff for Guys in New Albany.
For Dad, the Foodie
Treat dad’s sweet tooth for Father’s Day. You can find homemade and one-of-a-kind sweets all over SoIN! Make a stop at Schimpff’s Confectionery where you’ll find all types of sweet gift options to satisfy his sweet tooth, being made the same way since 1891. If dad likes to try new things, pick up funky sweets from the New Albany Sugar Shoppe or select from more than 50 cotton candy flavors at Mrs. & Mr. Cotton Candy!
Say cheers to dad with BBQ and beers while enjoying sightseeing of beautiful SoIN riverside! Celebrate Father’s Day aboard The Belle of Louisville with a two-hour cruise featuring a delicious, boxed BBQ lunch from City Barbeque and a refreshing beer for every dad onboard. Sightseeing tickets also include a free beer for dad! Click to get your tickets.
Bring dad to a local favorite, Pints&union. This rustic Eurocentric pub, more reminiscent of a man-cave with taxidermy and wooden planks for table-tops, is a great place for dads to sit back, relax and enjoy craft beer specials, cocktails, and amazing food.
For Dad, the Music and Art Lover
Channel dad’s inner artist at Viva Art for a Father's Day Painting class. No art experience required for this 2 – 2.5-hour class! Cost includes one 16" x 20" canvas and painting materials. Click to reserve your spot.
How about giving dad a ticket to Jeffersonville’s Beatles-themed music festival, Abbey Road on the River? Normally this 5-day music festival is held on Memorial Day Weekend, but due to the pandemic, it has moved to Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 2-6. Click for the full line-up and to purchase tickets.
For Dad, the Bourbon Connoisseur
Enjoy a day on the farm at one of the top distillery attractions in the area according to Louisville Business First. Huber’s Starlight Distillery at Huber’s Orchard, Winery & Vineyards offers a “Tour and Tasting Package” that will make a great gift for the dad who appreciates fine wine or handcrafted bourbon. You can also enjoy live music on the Starlight Café patio.
For Dad, the Golfer
Tee up with dad on one of Southern Indiana’s fairways. Enjoy the beautiful, hilly scenery of the Ohio River Valley at SoIN’s six public golf courses. Masters champion Fuzzy Zoeller owns two of the golf courses here: Champion’s Pointe in Henryville and Covered Bridge in Sellersburg. Both were designed by Zoeller and Clyde Johnston. They offer 18-holes that can match every golfer's skill level.
And finally, for the dad who has everything, you can never go around with a perfectly cooked steak or a craft beer! Check out our blog to the best Savory Steaks in SoIN or pick up dad a 6-pack of his favorite SoIN Craft Brew!
