This gift guide will keep you close to home with our Father’s Day gift guide, part two.

Celebrate Dad this Father’s Day on Sunday, June 17 with gifts from local shops. Not sure where to go for the perfect gift for you special dad? Look no further; this gift-giving guide from Patch will keep you close to home. Everything included in this guide was found at shops in Ladue and Frontenac.

We uncovered some of the most unique ideas that are sure to put a smile on Dad’s face. If you give him the Big Green Egg, it will make you smile too and make both of your tummies happy.

With the Stanley Screwdriver set shown here, he will have the tools he needs to complete those honey-dos around the house. That may not make him happy, but the golf game afterward will.

Dad can use his new Bristle Tees by Perfect Solutions. They promise longer, straighter and more accurate drives and hitting the ball will work out his frustration from doing repairs around the house. And he will look sporty and stylish teeing off in his new golf shirt and shorts from J. McLaughlin.
