Father’s Day is Sunday, June 20. Whether you’re celebrating in person or wanting to send something special Dad’s way, here are some options to celebrate the fathers and father figures in our lives.
For the culinary-minded dad whose snack skills are next-level, Coro by Salumi, a longtime Seattle staple for cured meats, has a newly-released Father’s Day Charcuterie Box, which includes chocolates by Theo, Seabear smoked salmon, Asiago cheese, Beecher’s crackers, smoky almonds, and two of Coro’s popular salumi flavors. A literal celebration in a box, it’s a deluxe way to send regards from afar. If Dad is a confirmed carnivore, there also is the Father’s Day Salami Sample Pack, a four-pack of 5-ounce or piccolo-sized salamis with a variety of original and traditional flavors. Shop Coro’s website for these and other products.
Not all heroes wear capes. But all adventurous dads need proper gear if they’re avid hikers and outdoorsmen. The unique pop-up concept store Periodic is a brick-and-mortar retail space in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood that hosts a constantly changing showcase of products and independent makers, from fashion, to food, to — from June 5-20 — stylishly sturdy hiking socks by From the Ground Up. Founded by Rami Nasr, a UW graduate with a love of hiking, these socks sport familiar Northwest landmarks like the Cascades and Mount Baker, they’re made with ethically sourced wool, and 5 percent of every purchase is donated to the Washington Trails Association, helping to maintain the very trails these socks get used on. Hikers who have explored the Appalachian Trail as well as the Pacific Crest Trail have nothing but rave reviews for this footwear with fortitude. Periodic is located at 2252 7th Avenue, Seattle.
