Dads mean so much to us, but they can be a bit hard to shop for. Instead of opting for a gift card or a “World’s Best Dad” coffee mug, check out these gift ideas to make your dad’s day stand out this year.
For the Music Lover
Tickets to The Music of Queen: If your dad loves to rock, treat him to an alternative experience he’s bound to love. The North Carolina Symphony welcomes conductor/arranger Brent Havens, vocalist Brody Dolyniuk and a full rock band to Meymandi Concert Hall on July 14 at 7:30 p.m. to break down boundaries between classic rock and classical music. $43– $100.70, from the N.C. Symphony.
For the Wine Aficionado
Vinoair: The perfect gift for the dad who loves a good drink, this on-bottle wine aerator does it all: serves up a perfect pour, eliminates drips and fully aerates and oxidates your wine for maximum flavor and quality. $22, from Swagger.
For the Casual Comfort-Seeker
