ANN ARBOR – Father’s Day is fast approaching.

While Mother’s Day might get all the attention, Father’s Day—which happens this Sunday—is a great excuse to take Dad out to dinner, buy him a beer, or find a fun way to celebrate.

We’ve put together a list of gift ideas from Ann Arbor area businesses and organizations that show Dad how much you care.

Here are 4 gifts to collect in Tree Town


Is dad an animal lover? Donate $25 or more to the Humane Society of Huron Valley on behalf of dad and he will receive a home video from HSHV visitor Bailey the dog.

Donations will go towards Bailey’s care and making sure homeless, injured and adoptable animals of HSHV get the TLC they need.

Who could say “no thank you” to this pretty face!

Is your father “the sportsman?” Good. We have some gift ideas for you.

Start Sunday at Fowling Warehouse Ypsi Ann Arbor. Throw soccer balls at bowling pins and compete against other teams for hours. Learn to play here.

Once you and dad have proven you’re the dream team, head to Ypsilanti’s Best In Games (BIG) Entertainment for arcade games, a Monster Truck simulator ride, ax throwing, karts, laser tag and ninja warrior obstacle courses. Discover all the attractions here.


If saving the earth is your pop, join Growing Hope and the Washtenaw County Conservation District to learn more about rain barrels on Saturday.

During the workshop, Dad will learn how rain barrels can help save money and provide long term sustainable solutions.

Does dad have high standards? The same goes for Zingerman. The beloved Ann Arbor-based food brand has set up Gift sets and subscription services for Father’s Day from $85.

Remind dad that you’re his favorite child by enrolling him in the Bacon All Year Club or the Food Explorer’s Club.

If that’s not enough, get advice on the ribs Satchel’s barbecue pitmaster, Brian. Add cornbread, beans and coleslaw to make this a meal Dad won’t forget.
