Father’s Day Gift Guide

Every dad is made up of unique characteristics that make them one-of-a-kind. They all have their wholesome quirks and candid moments. But let’s be honest, they all have at least one thing in common. They are dads, after all. With fatherhood comes the dad jokes, the wholesome dad content, and the need for greatness. Dads have many things in common including interests. And it so happens that there is a whole day dedicated to these great men, so what do you gift dads on Father’s Day? How do you shop for the dad that has everything? We’ve broken down some common traits dads possess into a few category types to help you narrow down the best approach to Father’s Day Gifts. Here’s a list of local Temple gift ideas for last-minute shoppers still looking for the perfect gift.

 

The Coffee Addict:

Atrium Coffee Co.’s 2 lb. bag of coffee and Atrium Coffee Co. stickers. Stop by this local coffee house to purchase. To a dad who lives and thrives on this caffeinated drink of choice, there is nothing better than that perfectly roasted blend of ground coffee. There are only so many coffee mugs you can fit in the cabinet. Its better to skip the mug and go straight for the coffee grinds. Atrium Coffee Co. is a local favorite with a nice, dark roast that dads will enjoy.

The Bartender:

Take a trip to a downtown Temple brewing company that is veteran-owned and veteran-brewed.

For a unique beverage option, give the gift of mead from Walker Honey Farm. This local honey farm and winery located in Rogers has several flavors to try. For example, the Logi’s Libation flavor is a spicy mead made with the locally sourced honey and smoked chipotle peppers. Another option is the Cyser Apple Melomel, a semi-sweet blend with the flavors of honey and tart apples.
