He’s a partner, mentor, human climbing gym, and all-around great guy. Show that special dad in your life how much you and the kiddos appreciate him with gifts he can savor and sip. Here are eight unique ideas for Father’s Day. 1. Stone fruit jams. Take advantage of all the beautiful, sweet stone fruits coming into season right now and make a medley of jams for Dad.
