A Pittsburgh Father’s Day Gift Guide

Forget the pre-packaged socks and boring ties of Father’s Day’s past that you gift dad then never see again. This year, explore the unique character of Pittsburgh and find a gift that reflects dad’s one-of-a-kind personality. Whether dad’s a refined gentleman seeking a handcrafted watch, a grill master craving a comfortable spatula, or a stationery aficionado in need of a new fountain pen set, there’s the perfect gift just waiting to be discovered. Instead of succumbing to the big-box chains, embark on a local adventure to find a unique gift dad will want to receive and will actually use for once.

Places for Father’s Day Gifts in Pittsburgh

Yinzers in the Burgh

Strip District

Is dad a Pittsburgh sports fan? Do you hear him screaming at the TV on Pirates, Steelers, or Penguins game nights? Then stop into Yinzers in the Burgh for all the Pittsburgh apparel you could desire. From hoodies to keychains to even dog jerseys for man’s best friend, they have all your sport team needs. 

Rosie’s Workshop


We have to admit that just about everything in Rosie’s Workshop is simply cool. You could invest in vintage lamps that use old camera models and instrument parts to create a fun design choice. Or, if dad is a builder, Rosie’s carries a number of lamp kits that you can take home so dad can make any of his own objects or collectables into a lamp. 



Every father could use an elegant button-up shirt or jacket for evenings out and about and Larrimor’s is just the establishment for quality, well-fitting clothing. They even carry more informal attire in case you just can’t get dad out of his favorite t-shirt. Though if you’re still looking for other fashion choices, check out our article on Pittsburgh’s mens fashion boutiques

Trace Brewing


Nothing says Father’s Day like an ice cold beer by the barbeque. Take home a six-pack of Trace Brewing’s housemade beers available in varieties like Pale Ales, IPAs, and German Pilsners. Have one of these cans and a plateful of homemade dinner ready for the perfect gift. 

Scribe Fine Papers, Kards Unlimited, Wildcard

Shadyside, Lawrenceville

Looking for something out of the ordinary that you won’t find elsewhere? These three shops specialize in interesting gifts in the world of stationery, books, decor, cards, apparel, and so much more. You really can’t go wrong with any of their products from joking calendars for dad to a new stationary set featuring the best fountain pen.

Orr’s Jewelers

Squirrel Hill and Sewickley

In the Kitchen

Strip District

Is dad a chef in the kitchen or a master on the grill? Pick him up a new kitchen knife, barbeque tool, cocktail shaker, frying pan, and so much more at In the Kitchen. Or, you could even take in dad’s favorite knife from home to be sharpened for a nice, simple addition to his gift.
