Personalized Gift Baskets and Arrangements: the New Trend for Dad.

Think back to how much thought you put into finding the perfect gift for Mother’s Day. Wouldn’t you like to make your dad feel just as special on Father’s Day? You may think to yourself “…men don’t want flowers…” but nothing could be further from the truth! The key to this success is personalization!

Giving a floral arrangement or gift basket that is personalized will undoubtedly make every father who receives one feel exceptionally special.  These personalized gifts create the opportunity for you to show your dad exactly how you feel about him! Following are a few ideas for themed baskets.

  • fathers-day-basketGadgets & Gizmos: for the dad who always has the “newest” and “hottest” items on the market!! If your florist does not carry these items in the store, bring something in for them to incorporate into the elaborate, futuristic arrangement. Let your florist be as creative as they like by coming up with something new and unique that isn’t available in an “ordinary” flower arrangement or gift basket!
  • Grillin’ It Up: most dads are known as “King of the Grill.” A basket filled with grilling essentials and recipes is perfect for this guy.
  • Sports Galore: what father doesn’t have at least one sport he follows with the utmost dedication? Your florist can create a beautiful arrangement with flowers matching the team’s colors. Include some memorabilia for that team/sport or take tickets to your florist and ask her to tuck them into the arrangement.
  • Food, Food, and More Food: for the dad who loves to indulge himself! They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach; curb his appetite with a basket overflowing with gourmet foods. Your local florist may be willing to create a fruit/nut basket or even use chocolates and/or candy.
  • Popular Pasttimes: fishing, camping, golfing, running, bicycling, hiking… the list goes on! Dads find many ways to spend their spare time– what does your dad like to do? Most of these hobbies are nature related; ask the florist to create a rustic arrangement… perfect for dads that are on the go.
  • Play that Funky Music: music loving dads will go crazy for this theme! Choose a favorite artist, genre or decade to inspire the florist and let them voice their creative expression!  This fun theme could include tickets to a local concert or a CD tucked into the arrangement.
  • Cultural Buff: this guy is up to date on the latest and greatest movies, books, art and more. Since this dad has an appreciation for the finer things in life, find out if your florist carries any rare or unique flowers or plants. Tickets to an art exhibit or a new book are great pieces to include in this basket!

Personalized Food BasketTip: What ever basket you choose, discuss the options with your local florist to create the perfect custom gift basket or arrangement.  They may have their own creative ideas to carry on the theme with the container, basket and accent pieces. The colors of the arrangement are also vital in continuing the theme throughout the entire gift basket. Make sure you and your florist have the same vision for this creative gift.

Father’s Day is less than a week away, Find a local florist and ask them to work with you to create the perfect personalized gift basket and/or floral arrangement for your dad. You will be surprised at the amount of dedication and creativity your florist will put into this project. Don’t forget the card! An original and heartfelt message from you will send your dads emotions over the top. Your dad won’t forget the effort you (and your florist!) put forth to make this Father’s Day his best one yet!
