Are you searching for the perfect Father’s Day gift for the various Dads in your life? New Dad, Grandad, Dad-in-law…. We’re giving the “Cool Dad” stamp of approval to these favorites that can be found right here, in Town Center!



Honestly, we hate to start the list like this but Commonwealth had so many gifts for Dad we couldn’t choose just one! If streetwear is more his style, we’d recommend snagging Dad a gift card so he can pick out the sneakers, hats, and apparel that he truly loves. Brooks Brothers is also another great gift card option if he’s in need of a new suit, tie, button down and more.


Has he worn the same pair of glasses for the last 10 years? Is he looking for a new pair to spice things up? Whatever the reason may be, Lenscrafters has the perfect frame for his face shape and style. Our top three picks (left to right) were the Versace Matte Blue/Gunmental frames, Burberry Olive Green frames (the temple detail really caught our *eye*), and the Burberry Black/Silver split frames.



What has delicious drinks, endless laughs, local jams and adrenaline pumping fun? Town Center of Virginia Beach! Treat Dad to a night out on the town with his friends where everything they’d possibly need is located conveniently within our city blocks. Go to Apex Entertainment for the laser tag, go-karting, and nostalgic games, the Funny Bone Comedy Club for stand-up comedy all night long, Zeiders ADT for incredible live music and Keagan’s Irish Pub and Yard House for quality brews. BONUS: On June 20th, Dad’s play FREE* at Apex Entertainment all day! *Promotion includes Mini Golf, Laser Tag or a 30 minute arcade card.



Treat him to a luxurious gift from Pottery Barn! Our two favorite gift ideas were the Irving Armchair and the Bleecker Stainless Steel Coasters.


What do facial cleansers & moisturizers, eye de-puffer creams, foot peels AND chocolate gift baskets all have in common? They’re all items the Dad in your life NEEDS. Sweet treats are good for the soul and skincare necessities are, well, necessary! Head over to Bluemercury for our Kiehl’s and Baby Foot picks and The Royal Chocolate to pick up one of their gourmet chocolate gift baskets.


A great gift for any grill enthusiast, Williams Sonoma‘s Grilling Rub collection made the top of our “cool dad gift ideas” list. It includes 12 of their most popular spice rubs – each with a unique blend of spices & seasonings that enhance the natural flavors of meats, poultry, seafood and vegetables. The Williams Sonoma Black-Handled 4-Piece BBQ Tool Set also caught our eye. He’ll be equipped with all the essentials needed to bring out his inner grill master.


If Dad has a sweet tooth and you’re looking for a unique gift idea, baking classes may be the perfect thing! Macaron Tart offers expert-led baking classes all year long and just happens to be hosting two special Father’s Day themed events on June 19th and 20th. You and Dad can learn how to create delicious Chocolate Truffles, Shephard’s Pie, “Manly” Turtle Bites and more, FROM SCRATCH! Not only will the two of you bond over the baking experience but you’ll get to enjoy the sweet treats you made together afterwards. Stop in or call the store to reserve spots before they’re gone!

A Father’s Day gift guide wouldn’t be complete without a car related gift! Irving’s Detailing Salon is offering a $53 Hand Wash, Wax and Vacuum ($75 value), now through June 20th. Call IDS at (757) 333-7854 to book Dad’s appointment or to purchase this special gift certificate. We also love the selection TASTE offers for Dads this year. If he’s a history buff, Drew Smith’s Oyster: A Gastronomic History “offers readers a global view of the oyster, tracing its role in cooking, art, literature and politics from the dawn of time to the present day. ” Want to add a little something extra? Add a Toadfish Oyster Shucker and a bottle of TASTE cocktail Sauce for a perfectly paired Father’s Day gift. And last but not least, Jones Art Gallery made our gift wish list. This incredibly talented family of artists offers a vast selection of original paintings Dad is sure to love. No matter the artwork size, it’s sure to make a big impact in any space!
