5 Last Minute Local Gifts For Father’s Day
Sunday, June 17, is Father's Day.
Father's Day is right around the corner...did you forget? If so, have no fear, I am here...with gift ideas! I don't know about you, but I always struggle with things to get my dad for Father's Day. What do you get the man who gave you everything, but already has everything? It's a tricky thing to do. Thankfully, the Hudson Valley offers some really cool gifts that support local businesses.
1. Golf Gift Certificate
If your dad is a golfer, this is perfect. The Hudson Valley has a bunch of beautiful, well-kept golf courses. My dad loves to golf, so I got him a gift certificate for a golf course in the local area. Or even a gift certificate to a driving range will work if a full 18-holes is out of your budget.
2. Local Liquor
The Hudson Valley has so many award-winning distilleries. Enhance your father's drinking experience with locally made bourbon, gin, vodka, or any other kind of spirit. Maybe even take him on a trip to a distillery while you're at it.
3. Shooting/Archery Lessons
I was able to do some archery lessons this May at Northern Dutchess Archery and I had a BLAST, so any dad is sure to love it. Whether he is a practiced archer or a novice, it's super fun to shoot stuff! Archery isn't his thing? Take him for lessons at a local shooting range.
4. Brewery Tour
So maybe liquor isn't for your dad, but he loves beer? No problem. The Hudson Valley is filled with amazing craft breweries. Take a dad-and-me brewery tour to multiple breweries, or just spend the day at one. Get some brewery gear while you're there too.
First off, make sure this is something your dad would be into. It's pretty expensive to sky-dive, so you don't want to waste your money if he won't go. But if he is a thrill seeker, there is no better thrill than sky-diving. It's an unforgettable experience that he'll love.
