From workout clothes to new gadgets, and mini golf experiences to museum days, we’ve got ideas for Father’s Day gifts that all the dads in your life will love!

Mini Golf Day
Plan a family day on the course. Let dad choose which mini golf location he wants to go to, then treat him to lunch. There is no shortage of mini golf locales in and near Staten Island. And the best part is, many of them are packed with other activities, too, like arcade games, batting cages and more!
