Dad’s a Catch!

Grab some fishing gear, load up the tackle box, and head down to City Lake Park! There you can rent a fishing boat and take Dad out for a day of fun in the sun. Enjoy a day of rest and relaxation on the water – after all, he deserves it!

Grab a Drink with Dad

Why not give your dad a growler of one of Brown Truck Brewery’s best beers, or pick up a specialty bottle of wine from Brewer’s Kettle? Find some of the brews or bottles that are seasonal favorites by visiting BTB or Brewer’s Kettle online!

Hit a Home Run with Dad

With the High Point Rocker’s Stadium in full swing (pun intended!), grab your dad tickets to the next home game! Or, if your dad is already a fan of the Rockers, pick up some rocking baseball merch at the next game, and make sure your dad has the t-shirt and hat to support the team!

Read a Book with Dad

If your dad is a big reader, head over to Sunrise Books to pick up a new title that you know your dad would love to read. Not sure what he would like? Check with the friendly staff at Sunrise Books who is sure to recommend a great read for your dad to enjoy this summer.

A Father’s Day Hole in One

Head over to Oak Hollow Lake Golf Course and pick up a gift certificate for your dad to play a round of golf! Ask about their 2019 Golf Discount Card when you do, which entitles cardholders $5 off each 18-hole round.

Pack a Picnic with Dad

Check out the High Point Greenway Trail with your dad this Father’s Day, something that’s free and enjoyable for the whole family! Grab your bikes and pack a picnic, and enjoy a day outside spending some quality time with your dad.

Caffeinate with Dad

If your dad’s a coffee drinker, why not pick him up a gift card from his favorite coffee shop in High Point? DeBeen, 83 Custom Coffee, Foster & Hobbs and more are all great places to grab your dad a gift card. Maybe even pick up a bag of specialty roast coffee for Dad to brew at home!

Get Active for Father’s Day

To enjoy a day with your dad getting some exercise and having some healthy competition, pick up a pass to play tennis with your dad at the Oak Hollow Tennis Center this Father’s Day. With both indoor and outdoor courts, you can beat the summer heat and make a fun day of getting active.

Make the Yard Beautiful for Dad

We all know the duty of lawn care usually falls on dads. If your dad loves working out in the yard, give him a shopping spree at Soviero's Tri-County Garden Center! Let him pick out beautiful plants that are sure to spruce up your yard. And if he’s not much of lawn-man, give him the gift of landscaping from Black Dog Lawn Care & Landscapes, so this Father’s Day he can enjoy the yard without all the work!

A Father’s Day Art Splash

If your dad loves to enjoy live music, head over to the High Point Area Arts Council and pick Dad a day to see one of the summer concerts they have lined up for the Arts Splash concerts all summer long! Share in enjoying live music as a family this summer.

Pedal to the Metal with Dad

Maybe your dad is a huge NASCAR fan. Then the perfect place for him is the Richard Petty Museum! Make a day of taking your dad to the museum and letting him enjoy learning about the local NASCAR legend.

Give a Word to Dad

But maybe one of the most special things you could do this Father’s Day, is tell your dad how much he means to you. Pick up a Father’s Day card from Pen + Pillar and write inside all you have to thank your dad for this year.

Pen+Pillar is owned and operated by wife and husband team, Taylor and Justin Mahlke. They work out of their backyard studio in High Point, NC. Pen+Pillar is the home of paper goods with a purpose. | Maria West Photography
