Seven Great Gifts for the Down-To-Earth Dad

Dads can be real salt-of-the-earth kind of people, so it’s no surprise that they’re hard to shop for. Giving gifts to the guy who means everything to you is not an easy task. That’s why Team Flea has done your homework for you. Our June vendors have you covered just in the knick of time.

1. Vintage Barware

Take brunch with dad to the next level when you make your bloody marys in vintage newspaper-inspired glasses. Black and white and read all over! Find them in the The Cleveland Mercantile Company booth.

2. A Cool Drink Caddy

Dads and beer are like peanut butter and jelly: they just go together. Stock your Father’s Day barbeque with drafts in this handmade steel and wood 6-pack beer holder by The Valerie Tyler Collection. Available exclusively at the Cleveland Flea. BYOB has never been so easy.

3. Grilling Necessities

Kick it up with a spicy vinegar-based Kill Devil sauce from Comrade’s BBQ Sauces. Inspired by North Carolina barbecue sauces, you won't find another condiment like it in northeast Ohio. Mop your pork shoulder with it, grill, and serve with a side of macaroni and cheese. Move over, Michael Symon!

4. Manly Mugs

The man mug collection in the Articles booth is on point! Retro and hilarious, these mugs have a leg-up on played-out dad gifts.

5. Humble Housewares

Subtle and well-crafted, these laser-engraved wooden coaster sets from Citizen Woodshop are a go-to gift for the minimalist man.

6. The Gift of Good Music

How could Dad be any cooler? Well, he could play a guitar made from repurposed local wood made by Lackey Road Guitar Co. Mount it on the wall, and it’s easy on the eyes and the ears.

7. A Card, Of Course!

Stay-at-home dads, this card was made for you! Like the seahorse, your kid-wrangling skills are boss! Snag your own card in the Triple Threat Press booth this weekend.
