Dads take care of us in so many ways and expect little in return. They are our motivators, protectors, teachers, sounding boards, chauffeurs and more, performing many of these roles graciously, and often without thanks. Father’s Day gives us the opportunity to express our love, adoration, and gratitude to all of the fatherly figures in our lives.
A gourmet food box from Tasty Ribbon has the qualities that are sure to please most dads, grandfathers, or father figures. All items are imported from artisans and family-owned businesses in Italy, so our gift boxes are filled with delicious foods and spreads he can use to whip up a snack in the kitchen or feast on the grill.
The sleek and classic packaging will pique his curiosity about what's inside, and you’ll be able to include a card that hold a beautifully handwritten Father’s Day message. He’ll be delighted to dig through the box to discover each item, and feel pretty cool when he reads your personal message.
Whether you are seeing your father in-person this year or remaining socially distant, give him a hand selected, bespoke gift box to show him how much he means to you.
For the dad who:
- Makes “cheesy” jokes
- Appreciates luxury
- Likes to entertain
- Fancies himself a foodie
