The Finer Things in Life

Archive for May 2012

ImageAre you like me and find it almost impossible to buy something “unique” for your dad? How many shirts and ties can you buy? Another line that my dad and I am sure yours too always said was,”I don’t need anything.” He thought it made it easier but not for me because I still always wanted to get him something that would put a smile on his face. I would always think,”Now what.”

Sometimes we would just opt to take him out for dinner. Even then it was not easy because being “DAD” he always wanted to pay.

To give a gift to your dad should be easy and fun and not a struggle. How about giving him a customized gift basket. If your dad is in the construction business on any level or is just one of those handy guys who can fix anything or thinks he can, how about giving him a customized gift basket with a hard hat as the container. It can be filled with all sorts of tools from hammers,paintbrushes,pliers,wrenches to gloves and more. I bet Dad this would put a smile on Dad’s face as well as letting him know that he was thought and cared enough about to have something created just for him.

If Dad is not the handy guy but loves football,baseball,golf,reading books and so on and so forth, a customized gift basket can be created around your theme and vision. I always say that “If you think it,we can create it.”

I always like to design new creations. I know that is RIGHT when the vision in my head matches the actual creation. Take me to the next level this Father’s Day and let me create something new and special and put a smile on your father’s face.
