Father’s Day Gifts for Sophisticated Dads

Father’s Day is June 18 – and although you could head out to the hardware store or sporting goods emporium as usual, we have a new suggestion this year. How about sending Dad a sophisticated, dramatic or elegant floral arrangement for his office? You may not have ever thought of giving flowers to Dad, but these arrangements are bold and confident and perfect for anyone – and are sure to be conversation piece wherever they are sent. For Father’s Day gifts that are unexpectedly beautiful, come to Breen’s Florist.

Did You Know? Father’s Day is a relatively new holiday, established in 1966 by President Lyndon Johnson. The inspiration behind the holiday was William Smart, a single dad who had raised 6 children single handedly. His daughter felt that he deserved the same level of praise and recognition as moms traditionally received on Mother’s Day. Even though it was decades in the making, Father’s Day was finally recognized.  

With dramatic lines and vivid colors, birds-of-paradise are perfect for arrangements that are both elegant and chic. The oranges blend perfectly with purple orchids for this design that will make a huge impact. If he likes to travel to exotic places, this is a perfect gift as well. 

For understated sophistication, ask our floral designers to create a design utilizing orchids. These flowers are completely versatile and appropriate as a gift for anyone. They are especially impressive when simply placed in a geometric or cylindrical vase – creating a minimal yet highly artistic presentation perfect for a desk or office.
