Many of the vendors in this guide are local businesses or companies that have integrated corporate social responsibility into their core, ensuring that your gift gives back in more ways than one.

This guide is designed to help you choose a gift that delights and supports broader social and community goals, making your Father’s Day gesture even more meaningful.
