It’s certainly not the time to buy Dad sport tickets, a golf club membership, massage, or theater tickets. Heartbreaking times call for well thought out gifts. We’ve done the work for you by choosing items that giveback to applicable charities or are made by black-owned businesses. Let’s put our money where our mouths are!

Father’s Day is June 21st this year, which means you have JUST enough time to order anything on this list if you get on it now.

(*We’re using male pronouns in this article, but are fully aware that their are plenty of Papa’s who use different pronouns and names! This is a space for all of us.)
