Pittsburgh dads love Pittsburgh gifts
Father’s Day is almost here! Sunday, June 21, is the day to celebrate dad. We’ve picked out some gifts that your dad will think are pretty rad. While all of these gifts are from Pittsburgh businesses, you can shop online and they can be shipped anywhere in the US.
Six Pack Holder with Branch Handle // Trovo Co
This is the summer of beer-to-go. Pick up one of these handmade six-pack carriers for the dad who is always bringing beer to the BBQ. If your dad prefers wine to beer, Trovo Co also offers a wood wine carrier.
Enamel Cup or Mug // 3 Rivers Outdoor Company
Maybe you are headed to a great gathering where you’ll be sampling a variety of beverages with friends. Rather than sipping from the old Red Solo cup, show your friends you’re not in college anymore. We love these GSI enamel-coated mugs and cups from our friends at 3ROC. Not only do they keep beverages nice and cool (protip: put it in the cooler with the ice for about an hour before using), but they work great for coffee and soup or cereal bowl in daily life!
If your dad loves the outdoors – check out 3 Rivers Outdoor Company online shop or stop by their store in Regent Square (they are located next to D’s Six Pack & Dogs). 3 Rivers Outdoor Co is a locally-owned outdoor shop and they sell all kinds of gear. They also have rentals and can do repairs.
[You can learn a lot more about 3 Rivers Outdoor Co over on our podcast. We chat with co-owner Christine Iksic about 3 Rivers Outdoor Company, camping for beginners and why western PA is a great place for white water kayaking.]
The Black N Gold Pack // Uncle Jammy’s Sauces
The Black N Gold Pack includes:
- Vanta B. Startin Somethin Sauce
- Hello Golden Sauce
- Gold Dust Rub
But we think any of the Uncle Jammy’s sauces or rubs would make a great gift. Jamal Etienne-Harrigan started making wing sauces when he was working at the Red Lobster in State College and now sells a whole range of sauces and rubs. You can pick up Uncle Jammy’s sauces and rubs at a few markets around Pittsburgh or order direct from the Uncle Jammy’s website.
The Brewmaster Box // First Sip Brew Box
If your dad is into beer gear, this is the gift that keeps on giving. First Sip Brew Box offers a monthly subscription box of beer swag. From T-shirts to stickers to snacks, these boxes make a great gift. First Sip is based in Pittsburgh but highlights breweries from around the globe.
[If you are looking to learn more about local beers, check out First Sip’s YouTube channel. First Sip’s founder, Dennis Guy, has recorded lots of interviews with local brewers.]
Cornhole Board // Lightning Cornhole
Since we’re all spending more time at home this summer, a cornhole set is a great gift for dad that will be a fun game for the whole family. Lightning Cornhole has lots of different designs so you can pick out the perfect cornhole set for your dad.
Yinzer Coozie // Keri Kreates
Is it really a Pittsburgh event without a Yinzer Coozie? Keep your drink cool and confirm your Pgh OG status with this can coozie from KeriKreatesShop!
