The busy month of June can catch the most organized gift-giver by surprise. Graduations are underway and Father’s Day is Sunday, June 19. It’s the season of dads & grads. This year, we researched gifts that are easy to shop for – and a pleasure to give. Here are some unique gift ideas:
For the High School Grad: Gas or ORCA Card
Load up a Safeway gas card or ORCA card to fuel their commute to a summer job.
For the Job Seeking Grad: Interview Clothes
Nothing beats a polished and professional look for job interviews, whether that’s a business suit or casual outfit (this is the Northwest, after all). Help your graduate put together a great look with a gift card from Jos. A. Bank, Marshalls or Francesca’s.
For the Grad School Grad: Home Furnishings
After living with the couch they bought at a yard sale for $5, graduate school grads will appreciate an upgrade on home furnishings. Browse HomeGoods for great values on dish sets and flatware, tables and chairs, rugs and couches. A basket filled with new towels always strikes the right note.
For the New Dad: Sporting Equipment for Him & Baby
Does he hike, swim or paddle? Treat him to new sports equipment with a twist – include something for baby, like a sun hat or UPF 50 shirt. Drop by DICK’S Sporting Goods for great ideas. You’ll find baby and children’s beachwear at Carter’s.
For the Connoisseur Dad: Scotch and Whiskey Glassware
He’s tackled diaper duty, coached little league and carpooled like a champion. Now comes the reward. Treat dad to a set of Scotch and whiskey glasses from BevMo! A pleasure to hold, these glasses are designed with the connoisseur in mind.
For the Dad Who Has It All: Night Out at The RAM
Who can resist burgers and beers? Take Dad out for dinner at The RAM Restaurant & Brewery to enjoy a pint of fresh, locally-brewed beer and classic, handcrafted burger.
Now through June 19 when you buy a $50 gift card at The RAM, you’ll receive a bonus (free!) $10 gift card.
You’ll find everything in our gift guide at Grand Ridge Plaza.
