Why buy your dad a boring gift when you can shop our online store (Six & Main) and find the perfect, most exciting present?

Surprise the father figure in your life with a gift that is sure to stand out. To assist in your search, we’ve created a gift guide featuring items from our store and products we love from other popular brands.

From habanero hot sauce to floating sunglasses, it might be hard to just buy one gift. There’s something for every type of dad.

Dapper dad
Who said dads can’t appreciate a good outfit? For the father who likes to keep the coastal vibes going with outfits, check out this green sprout button-down shirt by Block + Ink or golf shirt by Kennedy Gray.

Foodie father
If you really want to kick things up a notch in the Lowcountry, spice up Dad’s next meal with this citrus habanero hot sauce by Sobremesa.

Outdoor explorer
Have Dad explore the Lowcountry while wearing the “Seabrooks,” which are floating sunglasses by Rheos. Your father’s cool level just went up a notch. Don’t forget this non-tipping can cooler by Toadfish.

The homebody
Freshen up dad’s space with this Father’s Day 2-Pack For Him by the Wixology Candle Company. This candle set features the “Bourbon Neat” and “Nightcap” scents.

Techie dad
Give Dad a listening upgrade with the second generation AirPods Pro. Or help ease muscle soreness with the Theragun Mini 2.0. Plus, this portable neck fan will make everyone laugh — but catch Dad using it the very next day.

While this list is a great way to start shopping for Dad, we’re working to grow our store, Six & Main, and would love to add more local vendors. If you know any local brands we should be promoting, let us know.

Did you know? Our agriculture-driven state has nearly 25,000 farms and 4.8 million acres of farmland.

If you’d like to get hands-on by picking your favorite fruits and veggies this season, plan an outing to these agritourism destinations in the Olde English District:
  • Cotton Hills Farm and Market | 2575 Lowrys Hwy, Chester (~2 hours 45 minutes from Charleston) | This family-owned farm offers u-pick strawberries April-June with the chance to pick your own peaches, tomatoes, flowers, sweet corn, okra, and more in June through the end of summer. Head back in the fall for pumpkins and collards during the winter months.
  • Bush-N-Vine Farm | 1650 Filbert Hwy, York (~3 hours from Charleston) | What started as a peach farm has branched into much more. Guests can pick their own strawberries, blueberries, peaches, blackberries, sunflowers, and pumpkins, all depending on the season. Pro tip: Check out the Farm Cafe before you leave for fresh donuts, ice cream, slushies, hotdogs + more.
  • McLeod Farms | 29247 Hwy 151, McBee | (~2 hours from Columbia) | Since 1916, this farm has been growing delicious peaches and other produce. Starting in April, the farm invites guests to fill their buckets full of juicy strawberries. With 800+ acres of peaches, 60 acres of strawberries, 10 acres of blackberries, and more, McLeod Farms has a lot to explore.*
