Let's Face It, Dad is Tough to Buy For

OK, so Dad has a million neckties. He doesn't need any new grill accessories. And Father's Day brunch just isn't his thing.

If you're stumped on what to get him this year, Cactus Flower has the perfect Father's Day gift for the guy who has everything.
Our "Cheers to You" beer arrangement is proof that flowers can be delivered to a man! He'll love the humor in it, and although he won't be able to drink this cold one, he'll enjoy the bar snacks they come with.
Our Succulent Dish Garden is our top-selling non-floral gift. Succulents are perfect for someone who claims to not have a green thumb, as they require just an ice cube when they get dry. Seriously!

Finally, our Open-Air Terrarium makes a great gift to send to his office. Not only does it add color to his desk, but the plants provide healthy air-purifying benefits in his workplace.

Still not sure what to get Dad? Give him a call and tell him what you appreciate about him. Even the toughest of men will admit to being touched by their children's heartfelt words.

Happy Father's Day!
