A Restored Pratt Street
Through improved and restored retail storefronts, renovated residential spaces, and curated programming, Pratt St is being rediscovered.
We’ve reached the time of year when there are two types of people on everyone’s gift list: grads and dads. Between the busy schedules leading up to graduation and casual dads who say they’re “fine with anything,” these two can be difficult to shop for! Lucky for you, there’s something for everyone to enjoy here on Pratt Street.
Here are our favorite Pratt Street gifts for dads and grads:
You can’t go wrong with a gift people can eat or drink and you’ll certainly find the latter at Capital Spirits. The helpful associates can help you find dad’s favorite high-end scotch or help you pick out a refined version of your sibling’s favorite college beverage to welcome them into the real world. Best of all, if you’re too busy planning the festivities to pick something up on Pratt Street, Capital Spirits can deliver your purchase straight to your door.
There’s nothing quite like lighting a cigar to commemorate the end of something big. Buy a box for the grad in your life to enjoy after tossing their cap at graduation. For a dad, uncle, or grandfather who wants a quality cigar Gerry and his staff at The Tobacco Shop can help you find the perfect box to accompany their unique tastes. For a personal touch, add in a coupon for an afternoon of quality time together, enjoying the cigars and good company at The Tobacco Shop.
Building your professional wardrobe can be costly, especially when you’re first entering the workforce. Treat your grad to a high-quality shirt or dress from Morneault’s that they can wear with confidence at an upcoming interview and well into their career. When it comes to dads, whether yours wears a suit every day or prefers to lounge in a polo and shorts, you can find a piece he’ll love at Morneault’s
Your grad is most likely moving into their first dorm or apartment with a bit of decor. There’s no better way to brighten up their new space than with a new painting they created themselves during a fun day with a sibling or close friends at Painting with a Twist. Painting a double canvas together with a sibling is also the perfect way to team up and create a fun, handmade father’s day gift for dad! It will be a big step up from the art pieces of your youth that are probably still hanging up in his office.
Every dad loves a good t-shirt, especially one that reps his favorite team. Hartford Prints! Apparel options include several Yard Goats shirts, plus retro shirts featuring the Hartford Knights! For the nostalgic graduate, there is a variety of stylish, Hartford branded threads to choose from. Wherever their path takes them post-graduation, they’ll always have a bit of Hartford with them to remember when “here” was their home.
We hope you found something you’re looking for for the grad or dad on your list! To all the Pratt Street pops out there, we wish you the happiest of Father’s Days. To all the graduates of Hartford-area high schools and colleges, congratulations on your degree!
