For your special dude, get him a pair of Hey Dude Shoes from DSW. He’ll want to wear these everywhere.


10. PGA Tour Superstore | The Shoppes at UTC

For the dad who would rather be on a golf course, gift him a premium shag bag from PGA Tour Superstore. The gadget holds up to 75 golf balls plus gear and easily picks up practice golf balls, so dad doesn’t have to strain his back and knees at the practice range.





11. Mission BBQ | The Market at UTC
