Father’s Day is June 16th.

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!

These personalized gifts create the opportunity for you to show your dad exactly how you feel about him! You can do this with both flowers and gift baskets — both are available from your local florist. Check out these links below for LOTS of great ideas:
