Father’s Day Gift Guide

With Mother’s Day behind us, it’s only fair that we treat Dad to a little TLC, too. For dads who are anxious to get behind the grill this summer or those who worship the style of their favorite Mad Men character, we found some great Father’s Day gift options that would make any dad happy.

The spa at the Peninsula Chicago

1. Even the toughest guys need some pampering now and then, and what better occasion to give Dad the chance to temporarily forget his worries? The two-hour SPA for Men treatment at the Peninsula Chicago Spa includes a choice of a de-stressing aromatherapy treatment or full-body massage, followed by a purifying facial with a shoulder and scalp massage. At the Peninsula Chicago Spa, 108 E. Superior St., 312.337.2888,

2. Tis’ the season for grilling, and Dad is ready to throw on an apron and embrace his inner steak master. Help get things sizzling by gifting him a gourmet selection of prime cuts from the one and only Allen Brothers Steaks.
