There is a great rule to follow when shopping for men: when in doubt, look to sports. Sports apparel and memorabilia are to men what shoes and handbags are to women––enough said. The Sport Shop at Harborplace is the best place to go for everything related to professional sports. Is dad a Ravens fan? The Sport Shop offers a selection of even the hardest to find jerseys and hats. Baseball season is also in full swing, and The Sport Shop is the place to go for all things Orioles. Have your dad looking his best while he’s cheering on his favorite team this year.

Maybe dad is a music or movie enthusiast. If so, The Sound Garden is Baltimore’s number one destination for everything music and movie related. They offer a wide variety of used DVDs and Blu-Rays at a discounted price, as well as new and used CDs. The Sound Garden also has a substantial collection of vinyl records for those dads who fancy themselves collectors or simply will not get rid of that old turntable that they had in high school. Pick up a few classics you know he’ll love and throw in some more updated music to bring him up to speed.

You couldn’t ask for a better selection of beer and wines in the Baltimore area. Why don’t you give dad a new beer he has never tried before, but you just know he’ll love? Or maybe a nice bottle of wine could serve as a subtle hint that he could use a romantic date night with mom. Even if your father is a scotch drinker, you can find a wide array of his favorite indulgence at The Wine Source. If you want to go the extra mile, you could throw in a fine cigar; or if dad is a foodie, they also have a great selection of cheeses and meats. Swing by The Wine Source to out together a great gift for your favorite man.

Many fathers are golfers. If your dad spends his Saturday mornings hitting the greens with his buddies, the best place to find a Father’s Day gift for him is certainly Golf Galaxy.

You can also enroll your father in the Advantage Club. Membership entitles him to golf reward points, members-only sale offers, weekly email updates and invitations to special events.

Utrecht Art
229 West Chase St.
Baltimore, Md.
(410) 727-7004

For the sentimental dad, take a ride down to Utrecht Art. This is a shop that provides custom framing for just about anything you can imagine. While you could swing by any Ikea or Pier 1 for a standard issue frame, it lacks the personal touch that a custom framing job would certainly achieve. Maybe there is a doodle that one of his grandchildren did in school last week or an old family photograph that has been sitting in the same old dusty frame for the last 20 years. You could immortalize that sentimental keepsake forever by treating it like a genuine work of art. With helpful and knowledgeable staff, Utrecht Art will assist you in creating a wonderful piece of artwork that your father will treasure.
