For dads with particular hair routines, the Pellair 1977 Clay Wax from Hairrakesh Salon in New Paltz is a no-brainer. The men’s hair product, which was created and tested by a hairstylist, adds just the right amount of grip for a perfectly textured look and smooth, matte finish. The strong-hold grooming paste has a woodsy scent and is available at the salon’s New Paltz outpost or on Amazon for those who don’t have time to make the trip for this Father’s Day gift.

Hudson Valley Renegades

Wappingers Falls
Top pick: Renegades Family Four-Pack

There’s a reason why Father’s Day is in the middle of baseball season. Root for the home team right here in the Hudson Valley at Heritage Financial Park in Wappingers Falls, as you watch the Hudson Valley Renegades in action on the field. For families of four, the ballpark experience is even sweeter because a bundle of four tickets, four Renegades hats, and four meal vouchers only costs $99 throughout the entire season. Show up and show out to give dad the day he deserves.
