The Fun Dad Let’s hear it for the fun dad! The dad who lets you eat cake for dinner and stay up late when mom isn’t home. King’s in the Seaport is the perfect spot to celebrate your fun dad. In addition to bowling King’s has air hockey, skeeball, shuffleboard, billiards, and great food!
The Stay at Home Dad I mean this in both the dad who stays home and take care of the kids and the dad who would rather stay home on the couch and relax than hit the town. This dad very much likes to be comfy, so a cozy hoody is the perfect gift. And our pic for a cozy hoody? Sullivan’s, yes the hot dog and cheeseburger Sullivan’s. We literally do not know anyone in Southie who wouldn’t love a Sullivan’s hoody, and you can buy yourself fries while you’re there.
The Well-Groomed Dad The well-groomed dad did not wake up like this, it takes work! You can put together a day of very masculine pampering at The Beauty Bar with customized facials and waxing. We promise it won’t be anything like The 40-Year-Old Virgin.

The Fit Dad Does the dad in your life start every day with a protein shake or quick 6-mile run? We’re not suggesting you do anything crazy like go for that ridiculous run with him, but treating him to a workout is a great idea! Whether it’s a cycling class at The Handle Bar, some Vinyasa at East Side Yoga or CorePower Yoga, or one of the over sixty group fitness classes at The Boston Athletic Club you can find the perfect class for a fit dad and even your lazy ass.
The Cool Dad I’m saying this in a mocking, Amy Poehler in Mean Girls “cool mom” kind of way, I’m being earnest. Anyhoo, go get the dad in your life a pair of Ray-Bans at Wink right on Broadway. Can you even be cool without a pair of Ray-Bans? I don’t think you can, and I say this as someone who isn’t cool, and doesn’t have a pair of Ray-Bans.
The HGTV Dad A man’s home is his castle and it should be decorated accordingly. New home décor spot Deirfiur Home has the perfect home accessories and finishing touches whatever your dad’s favorite HGTV show is…hopefully it’s nothing with Chip and Joanna Gaines because the church they tithe their earnings to supports conversion therapy. Deirfiur Homes is fully stocked with Swig 12 oz sweat free vacuum insulated wine, beer and combo coolers! Dad’s drinks will stay chilled for hours! Cheers dad!
Beer Lover Dad This dad loves his beer! And not just a can of Bud Light but really good craft beer! Why not surprise him with a gift card to Hopsters in Fort Point! Hopsters is a brewery/restaurant/beer adventure experience where dad can brew his own craft beer. He can select from 30 recipes with the help of brewers, and he’ll leave with a few cases of his own craft beer!
Every Dad I’m pretty sure the perfect Sunday for every dad would include Capo’s Sinatra Sunday. Every Sunday The Supper Club at Capo hosts Rich Dimare and the Ron Poster Trio for the best dinner and a show you can find. Bolognese and smooth tunes, two great tastes that taste great together.
