On Father’s Day, it is estimated that we will spend over 13 billion dollars on Dad. And although there is a long list of traditional gifts, from fishing poles to power tools – the gift most desired by your dad is the gift of time. If you are lucky enough to have Dad local, take the opportunity on June 19th to spend the day making memories.
We live in a world with jam-packed schedules and never-ending commitments. Slow down and enjoy a day with Dad exploring someplace that speaks to his passion and personality. For instance, a car enthusiast will love to visit Muscle Car City, a classic car museum and shop in Punta Gorda. The 99,000 square foot museum has over 200 vintage ’50s to early ’70s muscle cars; and a retro diner that will take him back to the good old days. At the end of the day, give him a commemorative plant or floral display arranged in a classic car container. Not only will he love having the keepsake, but it will always remind him of the day you spent together.
If Dad’s idea of quality time is staying home and grilling out with the family, then Father’s Day is the perfect occasion for an outdoor barbecue. We have two ways to enhance this special occasion – first, choose a gourmet gift basket filled with crackers, cheeses and chocolates so that Dad can snack while he is cooking or relaxing poolside. Or if you prefer, we also have a whimsical floral arrangement displayed in a Weber grill container that celebrates his grilling prowess!
This Father’s Day, think outside the (neck-tie) box and come to Port Charlotte Florist for unique gifts for your Dad.
