Father’s Day: The Most Excellent Gifts on Melrose

Father’s Day: The Most Excellent Gifts on Melrose

Sunday, June 16 is Father’s Day. We know parents can be impossible to shop for, which is why Melrose is such a great destination for gift giving – we have something unique and appropriate for the coolest of dads.

ACE OF FADES

Men in general don’t always make time for pampering. And they totally deserve it! Doesn’t hurt to get his head a little cleaned up, either. Bring your pop to Ace of Fades barber shop for a steam, shave, and style, old-school. Looking good, Dad!

BLACK ANCHOR LA

Give a gift that lasts a lifetime, and that will always remind your dad of what a special kid you are. Take him to Black Anchor, ask for Dan McWilliams, and then hold his hand while he gets a stunning piece of work he’ll be showing off forever.

Treat your pops to some quality time with you – and pizza. And beer. That’s a helluva triple treat! Blackbird Pizza Shop has some of the best deep dish this side of Chicago, a sweet beer list, and the perfect atmosphere for a fun catch-up with dad.

TIGER BOXING GYM

Is Pops into fitness? Does he need a nudge to get into fitness? Send him to Tiger Boxing Gym for a lesson that combines cardio, strength, focus, and discipline, taught by the Olympian Tiger himself. Your dad will never stop talking about the day he trained with a legend.

WINCHELL’S DONUT HOUSE

If you’ve got a real Homer on your hands, you absolutely can’t go wrong with a big box of donuts. Winchell’s is a SoCal institution, so even better for your tradition-loving dad. Grab a box of mixed sugar magic and extra napkins for that side drool.
