Today we are featuring tips for how to honor your father (or father figure) this month. Plus we have some great gift ideas too that you can pick up here in Owings Mills, MD, online, or to make yourself.


Buy It


Ties as gifts are a long-honored Father’s Day tradition. If you are looking for a tie this year, The Tie Bar is the perfect place to shop. In addition to selling ties, they have pro tips with How To guides (from bow ties to pocket squares), and they also have a tie subscription club, so your gift can last all year long.  


Check out North Star Leather, based out of Ruby, South Carolina. Find a unique and perfect gift for your father through their online shop. It will always be a reminder to him of your thoughtfulness. They have different textures, styles, and colors of wallets. North Star Leather also sells other goods such as pouches, hats, keychains, tools cases, and more so you can find the perfect gift for him.


Make It


Is your dad the “grill master?” Then this BBQ sauce is the perfect gift for him. It’s also a great gift if you’re feeling creative or love to cook. This BBQ recipe from Happy Go Lucky is delicious and quick. You’re going to need ketchup, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Old Bay Seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder, and salt. A bonus is that it can be made in less than 15 minutes. You can also download a fun tag to tie onto the jar with string to add a unique touch.


Photos — Sometimes the simple things are the best gifts. Choose a favorite 8” x 10” photo of you and your dad, write a message on the back with a sharpie, then cut it up into a puzzle. When he completes the puzzle, your message will be there to greet him too. If you’re not that ambitious, frame a photo of the two of you and add a heartfelt letter, note, or card. In your writing be specific — share experiences that taught you something or that hold a special place in your heart. Write about the qualities in your father you appreciate. Tell him about how he has shaped your life. He will love it.
