With Father’s Day just a few weeks away, it’s time to consider how to best honor the most important man in our lives – Dad. Experts tell us that there will be over 13 billion dollars spent on our fathers and that the most popular gifts include personal electronics, sports, and outdoor gear, and power tools. But do you know what Dad himself says is the most coveted gift of all? Dads everywhere agree – the best gift is the gift of your time. This Father’s Day, how about looking for someplace to wander, explore and celebrate one of his passions, right here in Minneapolis?
If your dad loves nostalgia and cars, there may be no better place to spend the afternoon than the Ellingson Car Museum. A prominent Model T sign shows you the way off of I-94, and the exhibit itself showcases over 100 vintage (and awesome!) classic cars and motorcycles. A bonus of this classic hangout is a 50’s style ice cream parlor, serving old-fashioned malts and shakes. Commemorate your special day with a keepsake arrangement from Schaaf that will take a place of honor on his desk and remind him every day of your Father’s Day outing.
If your family prefers to relax outside around a picnic table, plan a lazy summer barbecue for Dad. Of course, he may prefer to man the grill if that is his passion – so make sure you celebrate the grill master with a gift to fit his culinary personality. Even in the winter months, this collectible grill will make him smile and think about the good times in the sun with those he loves.
The floral experts at Schaaf Floral can either create one of these unique arrangements or work with you to design a plant or floral gift that will speak directly to your dad’s very own personality. Don’t settle for a department store gift this Father’s Day – come to Schaaf Floral and impress him by going the extra mile. He’s worth it.
