Shop Local: Gift Guide for Husbands and Fathers (and uncles and brothers)

Business by: Joanne Kountourakis and Chrissy Ruggeri, December 15, 2021

A well-curated collection of books for the home cook (and self-proclaimed grill master) are available at Coquus Bookstore in Northport Village. Ask to see accompaniments like BBQ sauce, which are usually in stock.

Because you can’t get a four-pack to Sand City every single year, can you?


Barton at Home: Blanket and Candle

Give him the gift of comfort, and a little aromatherapy, with this blanket/candle combo from Barton at Home. The tartan blanket comes in green or white and has a soft sherpa backing; the 100% soy candle is a mix of balsam, pine needle and tobacco leaf scents that will transport him to a coniferous forest, without ever leaving the couch.
Tartan blanket: $42 / Winter Woods candle from Happy Camper: $26

ALTER’d Home: Beer Caddy

This earth-toned, subtle-but-stylish beer caddy holds a four- or six-pack and comes with a bottle opener neatly tucked – and attached by drawstring – into its side pocket. Limited supply (there’s one left) so grab it while you can! If you can’t get there on time, there are also beer and wine caddies available at Coquus, right down the alley.

Coquus: Cookbook

Is your man good with a spatula? If so, run a gas line to his BBQ this winter (or go for the coals), and gift him a cookbook from the curated collection at Coquus, Northport Village’s go-to for books and provisions for chefs. Check out the section devoted to BBQing and browse the quality cookware while you’re there.

Jewelry Collection: Beverage Jacket

Chances are the man in your life likes his beers cold (and his feet warm). Thankfully, Eileen from Jewelry Collection has this adorable beverage jacket that will speak to his heart. Pair with some dad socks (in store now!) and he'll bring cool to a new level.

Sand City: Some Cans (or a gift card)

Because you CAN get a four-pack to Sand City every single year. Be seasonal and bring home some “I Don’t Know, Margo” cans, an Imperial IPA that pairs perfectly with a weekend viewing of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Another option: you’ll never go wrong with a gift card here or even some brewery merch (like a winter hat).
