It seems to be a widespread truth that fathers are the hardest people to shop for. As Father’s Day approaches, many of us are scrambling to find the perfect gift, and we feel your struggle! To help you on your shopping journey, we have curated an inclusive list of Detroit-based gifts that will work for almost any dad. Let’s get shopping!
GRAB A GROWLER
For the dads that like beer, grabbing him a growler or two from a local brewery is an excellent way to go. There are a bunch of places all around the Detroit Metro Area that fill growlers. Check out Jolly Pumpkin in Midtown for delicious and peculiar locally brewed beer, Detroit Beer Company in the downtown area for a classic brew, or Griffin Claw in Birmingham for assorted goodness!
VAULT OF MIDNIGHT
Vault of Midnight is the perfect shop for lovers of graphic novels, manga, Dungeons and Dragons, games, figurines, pins, graphic t-shirts, and anything else in that vein, making it the perfect one-stop-shop for a young dad. Vault of Midnight’s Detroit location, located downtown, is right in the midst of all the city’s action and is a great place to find something unique and interesting. The shop also offers gift cards if you can’t quite choose the best option for your father.
For some, spending time together is a gift in and of itself—but even then, sometimes snacks make that time better. Monger’s Provisions bridges this gap flawlessly by offering top-quality, and locally sourced charcuterie board goods like cheeses, meats, honeys, jams, and more. If putting a board together yourself is a bit out of your (cheese)-wheelhouse, worry not, Monger’s Provisions can take the reins and put together a beautifully displayed board for pick up.
TIGERS TICKETS FOR THE WIN!
In many Detroiters’ minds, Tigers games are an essential part of being a part of this city. If your dad is one of these people, now may just be the time to grab a ticket or two for an upcoming game. Check out the Tigers’ schedule to figure out the perfect game to get some tickets for!

Whether your father is already a loyal user or not, any product Detroit Grooming Co. sells works as an excellent gift. And of course, if you can’t decide what your dad would like the best, grab him a gift card so he can pick something out for himself!
A BOTTLE FROM TWO JAMES
Two James is a great option for the dads who don’t get down with beer but still enjoy an alcoholic drink on a warm, spring day. At their location in Corktown, Two James offers an assortment of spirits including gin, whiskey, rum, vodka, and an assortment of other delicious options as well.
