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:
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.
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.
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!
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.
