It happens every year: you blink, and suddenly it’s Father’s Day and you haven’t got a gift for the dad(s) in your life. With Dad’s Day right around the corner [this year it’s Sunday, June 20], there’s still time to sneak in some great gifts before your celebratory brunch. Sure, he might’ve said he didn’t want anything, but who doesn’t love an “unexpected” gift?! Maybe your dad could use a wardrobe upgrade. Or maybe what he really needs is a relaxing staycation Downtown. To help you find the right gift for your dad [or husband], here’s a few ideas to get you started.
For The Dad Who Appreciates A Strong Shoe Game
When searching for the perfect pair of unique sneakers, look no further than The Tipping Point. Locally owned and operated by native Houstonians, this lifestyle boutique is known as the ultimate destination for limited edition shoes from brands like Nike, Puma, Adidas and Vans. Looking for a fully curated look? They’ve got you covered! In addition to footwear, the store offers a special collection of apparel, accessories, music and books.
For The Dad In Need Of A Spa Day
Treat Dad to the gift he didn’t even realize he needed: a spa day! With numerous luxury hotels situated Downtown, there are tons of spas to choose from when it comes to pampering your papa. From the Pure Spa Experience at the Marriott Marquis to the personalized spa and wellness services at The Four Seasons Houston, there’s no reason Dad shouldn’t enjoy a full day of self-care.
For The Dad Who Enjoys A Good Meal
We may be speaking for ourselves here, but we’re pretty sure there’s no greater gift than the gift of food. Luckily for us Houstonians, there are plenty of delicious presents to choose from. Does Dad love #SundayFunday? The Rustic is hosting brunch in honor of Dad! How about authentic Mexican cuisine? Dinner at Xochi is always a good idea. The Nash has a table for you! Is he all about the meats? Treat him to a fancy feast at Guard & Grace. Whatever meal he’s craving, Downtown’s got it covered!
For The Dad Who Lives For H-town Sports
Like all of us, the dads in your life are likely missing the days when Harden, JJ Watt and the Astros dream team dominated H-town sports. Get him ready for the return of those heydays by stocking him up with all the gear he needs. Stop by the Dynamo/Dash Official Shop - or look online - to grab the latest jersey for game day, get him ready to root, root, root for the ‘Stros at the Astros Team Store or pop over to the Rockets Team Shop for the dad that bleeds red. For a one-stop #ClutchCity shop, check out Funatics in The Shops at Houston Center.
For The Dad Who Loves To Chill
No one deserves a relaxing weekend more than Mom Dad. So why not indulge him in an unforgettable Downtown staycation?! Let him spend the weekend lounging by the Texas-shaped poolside at Marriott Marquis, basking in elegance at The Lancaster Hotel or living a life of leisure at Hotel ICON.
