Local Father’s Day Gifts

Looking to keep it local for Father’s Day? Or maybe you just waited a little too long and now you need a quick gift? (We’ve all been there.) Whatever your reason, there are plenty of dad-centric local businesses you can go to for your Father’s Day gift needs. Here are five ideas to give you some gift-giving inspiration:

1) 7 Bridges

Not only do they have plenty of tasty homebrew kits (if you haven’t tried their Red Ale, you haven’t lived), but they’ve got everything you could want for coffee roasting, cheese making, and wine, kombucha, and soda making too. And who doesn’t love their wide variety of organic ingredients?

2) El Salchichero

Bacon Jam. Need I say more? Yes, actually, because El Salchichero makes more deliciousness than you can even imagine. They even have some vegetarian-friendly items like preserves, pickles, and mustard.

3) Brew Cruz

You already know that Santa Cruz has some of the best beer there is, so why not take Dad on a trip to taste them all? Plus, it gives you an excuse to buy yourself a seat on the Brew Cruz bus. It’s a win-win, really.

4) Stripe MEN

Shaving kits, wallets, watches, and clothes. Stripe MEN has pretty much everything a stylish dad could want. They’ve also got some very creative cards if you want to keep it simple.

5) Instagift

For particular fathers who aren’t the easiest to shop for, Downtown Santa Cruz now offers Instagift eGift cards. Instagift can be sent via email and redeemed right on Dad’s smart phone! Plus you can get an extra $20 for your pop (or yourself) when you buy an Instagift of $100 between now and June 15th. More details can be found here.

Of course, we’ve got plenty of Father’s Day gifts for those dads with a sweet tooth, too. You can see all our dad-inspired gifts on our website by clicking right here. Don’t forget you can get 15% off your Father’s Day order when you use the coupon code “FATHER16”!
