Gifts for Dad from Black-Owned Businesses

While we should always look to diversify our spending habits, each and every day, this year it feels more important than ever to uplift the black community. Even if you feel a disconnect with your parents at this moment about everything that is going on, as can often be the case within families, no dad can argue with a high quality gift that is the product of true craftsmanship. Here are some ideas for showing the dads in your life that you care, while also putting your dollars towards supporting black-owned businesses.

For the slow sipper

Uncle Nearest is “the fastest-growing independent American whiskey brand in U.S. history and was the most awarded American whiskey brand of 2019.” For the dad who could think of no better way to spend the day than sipping on a smooth, small batch whiskey, this is the perfect way to share your love. And once you knock back a glass, perhaps this ritual can give way to a deep and meaningful conversation.

For the "secret sauce" dad

Your dad may pride himself in making the perfect burger, but there’s always room for improvement. Enter Charleston Gourmet Burger Co. I personally love brands that hone a very specific talent and devote their energy to getting it just right. The Wilsondebrianos traversed the country in search of the perfect burger and came up with their marinade, made from a blend of nine low country spices and herbs.

For the coffee lover

Your dad may think he’s “in the know” with the third wave, but has he gotten on board with the fourth wave? Red Bay Coffee, founded by Keba Konte, aims to go a step beyond the high quality and sustainable qualities of the third wave by making sure that coffee production also serves as a vehicle for diversity, inclusion, and social and economic restoration. Their coffee is available for individual purchase on their site, and subscriptions are also an option.

For the aspiring somm

Award-winning Theopolis Vineyards is a small lot vineyard and winery located in the Yorkville Highlands of the Anderson Valley in California. The relatively young appellation, which was just recognized in 1998, benefits from ancient, brittle rock soil and cool evening temperatures. Theopolis even offers a Father’s Day special bundle, so dad can sip his way through three of their bottles.
