    City Workshop Co – Awesome Threads {West Orange, NJ + Online}

    Grab your favorite dad an uber-comfy pullover to wear on the cooler summer nights either on the pier or at the Jersey Shore. Inspired by the history of its hometown of West Orange, City Workshop is a local shop that was created to be a “cool place where men could feel comfortable purchasing the highest quality products.” The owners are also formerly JC natives, so you’re doing your part shopping ‘locally’ while buying dad something he’ll enjoy. Check out their site and pull a dad move by being thrifty with Hoboken15 for 15% off your first purchase!

    SZNS Wallets {Hoboken, NJ}

    Almost all dads need a new wallet because they’ve been carrying around that same one {with your photo in it of course} they bought ten years ago {bonus points if he has a rubber band wrapped around it}. SZNS is a new startup from a Stevens Institute of Technology student {yayyy Hoboken!}. The wallets were created to be slim and minimalistic, but carry eight or more cards + cash. It has built-in RFID blocking and a pull tab for your most used cards. For HobokenGirl.com readers, use the code “HobokenGirl” at checkout to save yourself 30%.

    Hudson Paperie — Assorted Dad Stuff That Is Suuuper Cute {Hoboken, NJ}

    Hudson Paperie on Washington Street has a huge display of thoughtful {and adorable} Father’s Day gifts.

    If your father is a coffee connoisseur and simply can not live without his morning dose of life — errr, caffeine, get him a gift card to The Roost. This local coffee shop on 1st Street between Washington and Hudson also houses unique clothing and leather chotchkes, perfect for any fun-loving guy who wants to spruce up his wardrobe or coffee table, literally.

    ThreadLab Men’s Co. — Stylist and Clothing Subscription Based in JC

    Is your father or husband due for a little wardrobe updating? Then you should definitely check out ThreadLab to get him a curated outfit from their stylists that fits around your budget. If he has trouble throwing out some of his old faves {we’re looking at you, pleated pants}, then fill his closet with some new items he’ll love, since they were chosen specifically for him by local stylists. This company was founded in Jersey City and ships worldwide.

    Spesh Hair – Fresh-to-Death Buzz/Trim/You Name It

    Offer your father/hubs a fresh haircut and beard trim {if he sports one} at Hoboken’s newest spot, Spesh. This uptown Washington spot was recently opened by Steven Torres, who has a devoted clientele from his work in Hoboken and decided to take it to the next level by opening his own business. Their yelp reviews speak for themselves.

    If your hubs/dad wears many hats and one of them includes a chef’s hat, then Washington General is the place you probably should stop by to scope out the gift scene. This upscale home decor and gift shop houses a variety of things that any type of dad will love — but our favorite finds definitely revolve around the grillmaster situation {above}.
