Pinterest For DadPinterest is hoping to help bring some love to all the dads out there. The content-sharing service has added a “For Dad” category to its boards ahead of Father’s Day.

According to the San Francisco-based company, the “For Dad” feed is the first seasonal category. It has partnered with Williams-Sonoma, Macy’s, Target, The Container Store, Patagonia, and others.

The category is already hopping with a bunch of ideas for Father’s Day gifts, including homemade coasters, shaving kits, a garden in a jar, shoes, chocolates, suits, shirts, and more.

Pinterest users and brands are pinning recipes, too — everything from slow-cooker bacon jam to slow-cooked pulled pork sandwiches.

The folks at Pinterest have put together a list of other ways people can use the social network to plan for Father’s Day over at their blog:

•Create a board for dad with gift ideas, his favorite recipes, or activities to do with him on Father’s Day. You can also use a secret board to plan a surprise party for him!

•Use search to find something specific. Whether you’re looking for an exact item or something you’ve pinned before, search can help you pick the perfect gift or inspiration.

•Ask Dad to create a wish list on Pinterest and so you’ll know what he really wants for Father’s Day. Or better yet, send a pin to help him get started!

•Check out our Father’s Day board to get even more ideas, like this awesome t-shirt. From dapper looks to handy tools, we’re pinning our favorite picks for dad—no matter what he’s interested in.

Don’t forget to say thank you to your father June 16, whether it’s in person, over the phone, or over social media.
