Father's Day 2020 in Isolation Food Gift Guide

These are some ideas for Father’s Day I’m thinking about! He’s somewhat difficult to shop for and I know he wouldn’t go out of his way to try stuff like this. I think it would amuse him and he would be really appreciative.

Panbury’s Double Crust Hand Pies (Choose 6)
$79 and free shipping
Southern Breakfast – Fluffy, creamy scrambled eggs, sharp cheddar cheese, fresh chives, and local chicken sausage
Spinach & Feta – Fresh steamed spinach, chunks of creamy feta cheese, green onion, and loads of fresh dill and fresh parsley
Chicken & Mushroom – Succulent chunks of roast chicken, meaty mushrooms, celery, onion, fresh thyme, fresh parsley and white pepper in a creamy white wine sauce

If you have been an earlier follower, you may have seen when my dad recreated empanadas from a restaurant (insert link). He would love these hand pies! He really has a strong appreciation for pies and pastries of all forms. I chose these three because he does not eat red meat for health reasons and these offer enough variety. I think he will really love the breakfast ones because he is a strong supporter of chicken sausage and you don’t see it a lot in breakfast options. I think Marie Callenders could go this route and do really well. I like the idea of an elevated hot pocket.

McClure’s Bakery Whoppie Pies by the Dozen
$35 and free shipping
Red Velvet, Chocolate, Pumpkin
These are always a go-to at the Amish Market. I think he would enjoy trying the different flavors. These are such a fun dessert that you can’t just buy anywhere. I have made these for an ex once but it’s a lot of work. I would have no problem buying a set like this. I like how thick these look as well and you can freeze them as well. If I happened to be around when he gets them, I'd try the classic and pumpkin version.

Arcangeli’s Bakery Artichoke Bread Sampler
$59 free shipping
Artichoke Garlic Herb: Signature Loaf
Pesto Artichoke: Zesty fresh pesto with a generous dose of garlic and artichoke hearts
Cheesy Cheddar Artichoke: Fresh, seasoned artichokes, parmesan cheese, garlic, and spices rolled into French bread dough and topped with a tasty garlic butter sauce and fresh, sharp cheddar cheese.
Artisan Artichoke Focaccia: A traditional flatbread, topped with artichokes, pesto, cheddar, jack, and provolone cheese

Having the bread pre-baked so you can still have that fresh-baked bread smell in the home is a nice touch. Dad loves some fancy bread he can find at whole foods for breakfast or a snack. Artichokes are not represented enough in baked items. It’s always olives. I also haven’t seen bread like this before so it would be interesting to hear how these tastes if I can’t get some from him. Which is possible, dad loves bread. I think he would try the cheesy cheddar version first. I’m realizing all my choices are baked or bread-based but it’s popular for a reason. Plus, this would last for a while.


  1. The Panbury Pies look delicous! It's such a pity that they are only based in the US, my dad would love them!

  2. oh my god those whoppie pies are making my mouth water. thank you for these amazing recommendations:)
