In our home state of Minnesota, Father’s Day is more than simply a day for dads - it’s an event that marks the best of what midwest summers have to offer. It’s the time to enjoy the natural beauty of our home state with all the growth and new life that spring has delivered. Now, we feel this beauty can all be enjoyed while wearing a pair of Hippy Feet socks. We’re big socks and sandals fans, afterall.
We may also be a bit biased.
As you’re looking for a way to thank your Dad for the cringe-worthy puns and embarrassing dance moves, check out the items below. We’ve put together some of our favorite Father’s Day gifts from Minnesota companies.
Great Lakes Northern Outfitter - Dad Hat
The name says it all. Whether you're hanging by the dock, out on the boat, or playing golf, the Harriet Island Hat has you covered for just about every occasion. Available in a variety of colors.
Kind Lips - Lip Balm

The perfect gift for big thinking dads with an entrepreneurial spirit. Author and founder of Woodchuck USA, Ben VandenWymelenberg, recently released The World Needs Your F*cking Ideas. In it, he details how he built his company and how your idea might just save the world.

Bizzy Coffee - Cold Brew Concentrate
Bizzy Coffee for busy dads. Bizzy makes the #1 best selling cold brew coffee on amazon. Pour it over ice or add it to hot water and have a ready to drink cold brew without the long prep time of making your own.
Benjo’s - Shoelaces
What’s almost as bad as boring socks? Easy. Boring shoes. Let’s face it, a lot of dads could use a few pointers when it comes to fashion, and a pair of Benjo's shoelaces becomes an easy way to add a pop of color to an old pair of shoes.
Hippy Feet - Socks (of course)
This year, our go to for Father’s Day gifts are our Purple, Grey, and Black Tri-Block crews. These socks are made from super soft organic cotton and have an athletic fit. Every pair has the name of a young homeless person on the back - that who your purchase helped give a job to. Pro tip: combine these with a pair of Chuck Taylor’s and your pops will reach “cool dad” status in no time.
