Ultimate Cincinnati Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 21 — and this year, Dad deserves something extra special. While many of Dad’s favorite attractions remain closed, there are lots of locally made gifts and experiences to commemorate the occasion.

Check out our Ultimate Cincinnati Father’s Day Gift Guide for ways to celebrate:


Cincy Shirts

Cincy Shirts has a fun Father’s Day collection, with design themes ranging from Star Wars to Skyline Chili to fun throwbacks (Riverfront Stadium, what what!)

Friends of the Public Library

Does Dad like to read? Order a bundle of books from The Garage! You can call and talk to a book seller, who will curate a selection based on Dad’s interests and hobbies. Orders can be placed over the phone for curbside pickup.

Joseph-Beth Booksellers

From cool comics to coffee table books, fun gifts and everything in between, Joseph-Beth is our favorite place to pick up the perfect gift.

King Arthur’s Court Toys

For the young at heart, King Arthur’s Court Toys is your best. From fun outdoor toys (kites and yard games) to massive LEGO sets, King Arthur’s Court Toys isn’t just for kids.

Ohio Valley Beard Supply 

Does Dad sport a perfectly coiffed beard? Ohio Valley Beard Supply has elixirs, oils and more for all Dad’s grooming needs!


Holtman’s Donuts

What Dad doesn’t like donuts? Order a dozen (or two) for Father’s Day and we guarantee it will be a hit.

MadTree Brewing

Father’s Day dinner, done and done! Order local brews + a pizza kit from this Cincy fave. Drive-thru pick-up is available, too.

The Peach Truck

The Peach Truck is coming to Cincinnati this summer! Order Dad a crate of peaches for pickup at one of these local venues.

West Side Brewing

This local brewery offers “no touch delivery” for orders over $40.


Cincinnati Museum Center

In Cincinnati, there’s really no better family attraction than the Cincinnati Museum Center (CMC). From trains and cars to dinosaurs and outer space, this attraction truly has something for everyone. Though CMC is tentatively slated to reopen in mid-July, and you can support the museum *and* get Dad a gift that he’ll enjoy all year long, with a Family Membership.

Cincinnati Zoo

Does Dad like to walk on the wild side? Enjoy a day at the Zoo! (Better yet – get Dad a membership to the Greenest Zoo in America!)

Drive-In Theatres

This summer is the summer of the drive-in theatre! These outdoor attractions offer a night out with built-in social distancing. There are a few to choose from in Cincinnati — including the most recent addition, the Hollywood Drive-In in College Hill.

Entertrainment Junction

What dad doesn’t like trains? The World’s Largest Indoor Train Display is reopening this month, and to celebrate, Entertainment Junction is offering their Do-It-All tickets for $13.95. More info, including safety procedures, here.

Findlay Market

In Cincinnati, Findlay Market is *the* place to shop local. Bring Dad for a day of shopping, or get him a gift certificate — gift certificate proceeds provide immediate relief for local businesses.

Great Parks of Hamilton County

Plan a family hike, bike ride or picnic for Father’s Day! Find a park near you for a fun day outdoors. (Looking for a hiking trail? Search the Tri-State Trails database!)

Pyramid Hill

On Father’s Day weekend, bring your rod and a picnic lunch to Pyramid Hill for the annual Fishing Derby! The Fishing Derby will take place Saturday June 20, from 10 am – 12 pm. Kids are invited to participate in a catch-and-release tourney with prizes for biggest fish and most fish caught in three different age categories. This even is FREE and open to the public, don’t miss it!

Happy Father’s Day, Cincinnati Dads!
