There is a lot of mystery surrounding the genesis of Father’s Day – there are no fewer than five people in history who have claimed that the idea was theirs. The bill was bounced around in Congress for five decades before it was finally declared to be a national holiday – a full 40 years after we decided to honor Mom! Although it may have taken everyone a little longer to officially celebrate a father’s role in our lives, it caught on quickly. The holiday is celebrated in over 140 countries in a variety of ways.
In over half of those nations, including the United States, Father’s Day is observed on the third Sunday of June, This year, they day falls on June 19 – and here at Breen’s, we’d like to help you get started on finding a truly fun and unique gift for Dad, instead of running out at the last minute to buy a necktie! This year, give him something he will love. For instance, a gift basket of indulgent snacks all for him will make watching the game all the more pleasurable. If you are nice to him, he may even let you try some of these delicious items.
If Dad has an office and works hard, give him a gift that he will enjoy year round. He is sure to admire this succulent garden that is reminiscent of the hike through the Texas desert. This beautiful arrangement is masculine, sophisticated and long lasting – and we know he will love having it in his line of sight while he is working as a reminder of how much you love and appreciate him.
These are just two of the gifts available at Breen’s – we have much more! Surprise him with your creativity and thoughtfulness this year, with a personal gift from Breen’s Florist.
