Father's Day card

Father’s Day is June 20. Celebrate the dads in your life with gifts from your favorite Tenleytown businesses. Whether your dad is a weekend warrior, outdoor adventurer, music lover, or foodie, our local shops have just what he wants. Check out our guide below for where to find the perfect gift for:

And don’t forget about Tenley Bucks Community Gift Cards, which can be used at more than 20 local businesses.



For sport and fitness enthusiasts …

If dad loves to hit the courts, Tennis Zone Plus offers everything he needs to get his tennis game in shape, including rackets, shoes, balls, and bags. City Bikes, and their sister store ElectriCityBikes, has the cyclist in your life covered with bikes, accessories, clothing, and more. While you can find gifts for scuba divers at the National Diving Center. A class pass or gift certificate to a local gym also makes a great gift. Yoga, circuit, Pilates, and more – Tenleytown studios offer it all.

And if dad has overdone it with his fitness routine, then consider treating him to a sports or deep tissue massage from The Body Mechanix or a relaxing massage or total body stretch session at Massage Envy. In honor of Father’s Day, you can receive a free $20 promo card when you purchase $80 in gift cards from Massage Envy.

For the weekend warrior …

From tools to electrical and plumbing supplies to hardware, Tenleytown Ace Hardware has everything for the do-it-yourselfer. The friendly staff can help you pick out the right equipment whether your dad is a novice or experienced weekend warrior. If your father prefers grilling out to fixing things up, Ace has you covered there, too. Shop their selection of grills and grill accessories.


For music lovers …

We know your dad rocks, but if he also likes to rock, Middle C Music has a great selection of music-themed gifts, musical accessories, instruments, sheet music, books, recordings, and more. And if you aren’t a music expert yourself, their knowledgeable staff can guide you to the right gift.


For the sentimental …

Tenleytown’s art framing establishments can preserve your treasured photographs and special mementos. Whether it’s a picture of you and your father, kids’ artwork, or a reminder of a trip you took as a family, a custom-framed piece makes a heartwarming gift. In honor of Father’s Day, Framers’ Workroom is offering a 15% discount on all purchases throughout June.

If dad is in need of a fresh summer cut, an appointment at one of Tenleytown’s local barber shops or salons makes a cool gift!

With many cuisines – from French to Italian to Indian – at many price points, it’s easy to find a perfect option any time of day. Reserve a spot indoors or on an outdoor patio, order for carry-out, or have it delivered. Don’t forget to include a nice bottle of wine or batched cocktail, too.

Toast dad with a special bottle of wine, craft beer, or a bottle of his favorite Cognac or brandy. The wine shops of Tenleytown can expertly suggest the best beverage to enjoy on its own or to compliment your Father’s Day meal. Looking for something a bit less traditional?
