Sometimes I forget that Casa Ramirez has so much more than just cool
These great guayabera shirts come in a bunch of light, tropical colors
Or how about father/son shirts for extra fun? Kids sizes I saw started at 2t.
Also, everyone loves Dad as "King of the Grill."

My husband had once mentioned wanting a bowl for his work desk
to keep some pieces of fresh fruit in.
While this key bowl isn't food safe for that purpose,
it is a great size for mail or other junk dads probably keep on their desks.
I bought one of these for my husband last year.
It's a diffuser but without "all those sticks coming out" that he didn't want.
Also, spill proof so safe for use around his work computer and paperwork.
Desk/mantle clocks are always a good gift if you're looking for more of a keepsake.

There is one seller in GH who carries sports memorabilia and had this cool rack of old comic books. Great stuff if Dad is a "collector."
Does Dad dig Mad Men style?
This 2 piece mid-century corner table was only $145.
With MCM being so on trend, it's hard to find pieces at affordable prices any more!

Known mostly as a frame shop, Dramatika is always worth a peek when gift shopping.
They carry some nice greeting cards, fancy papers, some framed art,

This masculine and surprisingly sturdy table at Eclectic Home
would look great in the corner of a man cave or office.
It doesn't come cheap, though. This would have to be a pretty special year!
If you're looking to spend less than a high end occasional table costs, there are these super cool sand art pieces. There is a variety of sizes and, therefore, a variety of price points. The one at the top of this photo is roughly 3' wide, to give you an idea. These were originally brought in to the shop at Father's Day gifts a couple years ago and have done so well, they now keep them year round.

CODA is packed full of fun entertaining gifts. These aprons go back to the whole "King of The Grill" notion.
Eco-friendly and Dad-ish, these drinking glasses are made from exactly what they look like they're made from- beer bottles. There are also non-alcoholic versions from soda bottles and wine glasses.

These great hankies are sold at OGS and made by another local business, Paule Hewlett's Beyond Her. Paule also makes incredible knit scarves, tank dresses, and dish towels. Buy yourself a little something while you're at it! Double local shopping whammy!
These stainless steel wallets are pretty funky, too. If they're at OGS, you can bet they have a cool story about how they're upcycled!
Artist made key chains are a nice token gift if Dad doesn't already have a lanyard made by his kiddo (like mine does).
While at One Green Street, you can also check out their great line of men's skin care and buy some fresh coffee beans roasted by Boomtown Coffee. Another double Heights shopping prize!

I didn't actually go in to Hello, Lucky yesterday
I had to share this HL Facebook photo though,
Saw a guy at the Galleria in one a couple weeks ago and it brought a huge smile to my face.
They come in kiddo sizes and women's cut as well.
Did you find something fun or creative for Dad in the Heights? Share in the comments!
