Each year many of us struggle to find the perfect gift for our Fathers. We scour the internet looking for something we are sure he will love, only to be deterred by high prices and shipping costs. Many people are shifting away from conventional gifts. Ties, mugs, and gadgets are being replaced with gifts a little more deluxe.
Fathers of today appreciate a day of being pampered and treated like a king. Make it a Father’s Day weekend and have a gourmet box lunch or two delivered to his workplace during the work week. Opening up a beautiful box filled with gourmet sandwiches, fruits and accompaniments will surely make his day special.
If you are looking to step this up a notch, send a meal for the whole office! This allows him to celebrate not just with his family, but friends and co-workers as well. If you are on a budget breakfast is the way to go. Send a continental breakfast filled with Danish, muffins, bagels and fruit or go a little less traditional with Breakfast Sandwiches and Yogurt Parfaits.
If looking for lunch options, the possibilities are endless! Many caterers have a variety of entrees and accompaniments, and allow you to choose your own theme; You can go as safe or bold as you’d like. Sandwich platters and salad bowls are always a popular choice, and allow guests to choose their favorite entrée. You can also choose a regional menu, highlighting foods from all around the country. Or send a nice afternoon snack! A late afternoon pick-me-up is always a welcomed treat. Choose something high in protein, such as a cheese and cracker tray, or Hummus and Veggie tray to accommodate any Vegetarian or Vegan guests.
If dad isn’t a “foodie,” send a delectable basket or platter of desserts — who can resist a sweet dessert! Cookies always go over well as do brownies and chocolate covered strawberries. Fruit tarts are also in season during this time of year and make a beautiful presentation.
