How to Spoil Dad on Father’s Day

Father’s Day is here and we most certainly couldn’t forget about the #1 man in our lives. It can be hard figuring out the right way to say thank you to the father figure in your life. Lucky for you, we can help.  The gifts below will show the dads around you just how cool you think they are. Read below to see if any of them work for your father. And while you’re here, Happy Father’s Day from your friends at Sleepy Poet! 

Vintage Clothes

"Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them." —Marc Jacobs

Some say when you look good, you feel good and we couldn’t agree more! Clothes are more than just what you put on your body. They represent who you are and how you want to be presented. And since dads are usually too busy to shop, this is the perfect opportunity to do the shopping for them. Keep your dad stylishly savvy with vintage clothing. Our vintage clothes are in great condition and have unique stories that come with them. Show the dad in your life that you care with a new outfit that fits his style and demeanor.  

Our vendors at Sleepy Poet carry an array of vintage clothing. Stop by this weekend and find a great outfit, or 2, for Dad. He deserves to look and feel good too.  

Buy Your Dad His Favorite Record

“Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.” -- Johnny Depp

Let’s face it, everyone loves music. Like seriously, we’ve never encountered someone who has said they can’t stand music. Because of this, we suggest you get the Dad in your life his favorite record. Without a doubt, he’ll be glad you thought of him and admire the fact that you know him well enough to pick up his favorite tune, rather than just sending a YouTube link. He’ll be sure to play it repeatedly and think of you every time he does. There is no better way to say thank you for all that you do than to bring someone something special and near to their heart.   

Not sure if we have the vinyl you are looking for? Stop by either of our locations and take a peek! We have the largest vinyl selection in the area, so you are bound to find the perfect record for your dad. Find the perfect gift for Dad is worth a shot, right? 

A Trip Down Memory Lane

“Time spent with family is worth every second.” -- unknown

Everyone has a story to tell. Why not take this weekend as an opportunity to get you know your Dad’s story better? The benefit of exploring an antique mall together is that as he sees things that remind him of the past, he will be happy to share the memories with you. The more time you spend together, the better you will understand each other. Nothing else will show dad how much you love and adore him than a fun trip down memory lane.   

 A visit to Sleepy Poet will be a fun activity for both you and the father figure in your like. We’ll be  open 12-6pm, so feel free to stop by either of our locations. Thay both have tons of space for your family to explore. Sleepy Poet can be your one stop for the day, or it can be a part of a bigger plan. The choice is yours.  

We hope this guide gave you some creative gifts to get your dad or loved one. Dads are awesome and usually play a big part in who we are. Show them you care with some unique vintage items. And to all the Dads out there, THANK YOU! We hope you have an amazing day!
