Father’s Day is June 20th. It is understandable that some may still feel a bit apprehensive to send their Dad flowers for Father’s Day. Some may feel Dad wouldn’t appreciate the good hearted ribbing he may get from fellow co-workers or feel that Dad may just be uncomfortable receiving a gift that was typically considered to be a gift given to women. Although the truth is the good hearted ribbing is simply secret jealousy and what was once considered a gift for women hasn’t been that way for centuries.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Unless buying your Dad another tie is a running family joke, consider something different this Father’s Day. Ideas for great gifts are plentiful, and this Father’s Day go ahead and get Dad flowers. Flowers are a wonderful gift of nature. Everyone likes receiving them – including your Father – because flowers represent love, happiness, joy and all the other positive emotions.

And contrary to popular myth flowers are not just for women – many men enjoy the gift of flowers too. Flowers – specially well structured and strong looking varieties – appeal to mens masculine nature. Bold, bright colourful flowers are also popular with men and tropical or exotic varieties are a good choice that fits this description.

Traditionalists might select a bold rose arrangement for their Father because the red rose is the official Fathers Day Flower. A white rose is worn or given to commemorate Fathers who are deceased. Other Father’s Day ideas may include humorous arrangements like the ever popular bright yellow “Be Happy Mug” flower arrangement and of course the cactus collection (draw your own conclusions from this gift!)

All joking aside, men do have a softer side – admitted or not. Gardening or getting fresh flowers for the home are common male past-times. The next time you are at the local garden centre, pay attention to what men want and you’ll see that they’re not always shopping for their wives!

If you must continue the Father’s Day gift idea of a tie (or some other item like a baseball cap, or socks) at least speak with your local florist about incorporating these Father’s Day ideas into a Father Day flower arrangement he will likely never forget.
