JXN Dad’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is quickly approaching on Sunday, June 16. Show love to the father figures in your life with a few of our favorites from around the City With Soul.

For The Home Chef & Grill Master

Stop by Sur La Table in Highland Village for the latest cooking and grilling gadgets. You can also gift dad one of their cooking classes, which take place in-store and cover everything from baking to international fare. Revell Ace Hardware stocks a wide range of top grill brands like Weber, Traeger, and Big Green Egg, as well as plenty of accessories and supplies to feed a crowd. Round out their pantry at Beans & Bananas, which carries hard-to-find local and national rubs and spices, and check out Eddie Wright BBQ and Nick Wallace’s Nissan Cafe for their specialty seasoning mixes.

For The Yard Of The Month Winner

For the avid gardener and landscapist, Huttos Home & Garden Center and Green Oak have beautiful plants, potting materials, and supplies for dad and his green thumb. A bag of fertilizer from Wurmworks, Jackson’s sustainable, science-based composting team, will have his yard ready for the winner’s circle in no time.

For The Music Buff

From yacht rock dads to blues aficionados and everyone in between, both The End Of All Music and OffBeat have vinyl spanning every genre. Check out Duling Hall’s and Hal & Mal’s current lineups for tickets to send Dad to see some of the region’s best up-and-coming artists.

For The Book Worm

Contribute to dad’s library with a Lemuria Book Store’s First Editions Club membership, a monthly curation of signed first editions for fiction and nonfiction by some of today’s most prolific authors. Joining the club is the cost of the list price of the selected book, and titles can be shipped for an additional small fee. Find unique art, coffee table, and Mississippi-based books at The Book Rack, which shelves new and secondhand titles in excellent condition.

For The Outdoorsman

Buffalo Peak Outfitters is a great one-stop-shop for everything outdoors, from apparel to shoes and camping and fishing accessories. Spend a day with dad at LeFleur’s Bluff State Park, where 305 acres of lush forest in the heart of Jackson offer opportunities for nature trail hikes, fishing, picnicking, and primitive and RV camping. For a day of fun in the sun and on the water, book a day trip with Capital City Kayak Adventures, where expert Chris Lockhart will guide you through hidden streams and serene waterways throughout the metro area.

For The Sports Fan

From baseball, football, golfing, and beyond, explore the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame & Museum for interactive exhibits featuring the best of the state’s sports history and its legendary players, coaches, and more.

For The Fashionable Gentleman (Or The One That Needs A Little Help)

Whether he owns New Balances or not, Jackson has plenty of picks to fill dad’s closet. The Rogue has delivered fine men’s clothing, suits, shoes, and accessories to the area for over 55 years, and Mozingo Clothiers and Great Scott have equally fashionable finds.
