Illinois Made Father's Day Gift Guide

What better way to appreciate your father or husband than with a unique, locally produced gift crafted by one of our talented Illinois Makers.

Find gifts for Dad with handcrafted items from Illinois Made artisans. Better yet, plan a trip together to visit an Illinois maker and shop for local products in person. Here are some of our favorites for Father's Day:

Homewood Bat Co.

For the baseball loving Dad, Homewood Bat Co. creates handcrafted bats that are often used by professional players including 2016 World Series MVP Ben Zobrist. Homewood Bat Co manufactures and sells professional grade, wood baseball bats made from ash, yellow birch & maple. Available for purchase online.

Sangamon Reclaimed

For a unique Father’s Day gift, Sangamon Reclaimed dismantles 100 year old barns to creates one-of-a-kind pieces of art gathered and made by local veterans and firefighters with reclaimed wood to pay homage to the American Spirit, crafting works such as American flag mosaics and rustic dining-room tables. Available for purchase online.

17th Street BBQ

For the grill master, 17th Street BBQ in Murphysboro and Marion offer a wide variety of sauces and “magic dust” to give any meat incredible flavor. From smoky to savory, there’s a bold flavor to fit any Dad’s taste all for $25 or less!

Dearborn Denim

For the Dads who want a lot of bang for their buck (so pretty much all Dads), Dearborn Denim makes comfortable jeans in-house with quality tri-blend stretch 100% cotton denim. Each order is hemmed to length and the shop even carries a wide range of waist sizes and inseams so Dad can get the best possible fit. The best part? All jeans are under $80!

Whiskey Acres Distilling Co.

If Dad is a whiskey connoisseur, Whiskey Acres makes whiskey from seed to spirit, grown on Illinois soil. Whiskey Acres sells rye farm-crafted whiskey, bourbon farm-crafted whiskey, farm-crafted vodka and farm-crafted corn whiskey. Available online and at select retailers – including Binny’s, Mariano’s and Whole Foods.

Blaum Bros. Distilling Co.

With fine spirits sourced and distilled from the best grains from local farmers, Blaum Bros. Distilling Co. offers a selection of bourbon, gin, and vodka made with the highest quality ingredients possible. Available for purchase through online retailer.
