With only a few days left until Father’s Day, which is Sunday, June 19th, we at The Social Book felt this could be a perfect time to showcase some exciting restaurants as well as fashion and jewelry stores. These businesses are creating wonderful experiences and many unique gifts to give your special man, as we take our time to celebrate them. We asked each of those included in this article to share their (and in many cases, my) favorite ideas to gift for this upcoming notable day. We have shared a photo of each item along with a short description, company name, price, website link, and in some cases, pertinent information. Please enjoy our list and remember to shop and dine locally. Our establishments need your support!
