The Buzz Hub guide to Father’s Day gifting

June 6, 2020

It’s that time of year when we get to celebrate the men in our lives and treat them with thoughtful, carefully selected gifts.  I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I find men so much harder to buy for…they just seem to come with less “stuff” than us ladies! I’ve loved watching the Father’s Day offerings from so many local businesses and it’s given me lots of inspiration for great gifting…that also means we support our local independents too.  I’ve put together a few highlights for you all, that shows you some ideas you may not have thought of for all interests and budgets. There are so many options – that this is just the tip of the iceberg.  Do visit our #SHOPLOCAL pages for more inspiration for the big day.
