Outside of the Box Father's Day Gifts

Gifts sure to make Dad's Day extra special!
Father's Day 2017 is June 18th and your chance to show Dad that "you get him". These specially purveyed, exquisite gifts are the ones men want most this year (remember fathers are first and foremost MEN!)
So here are my top favorites for Pops while thinking outside of the box or gift basket.

Gifts for Java Dad
Coffee has gone to new heights these days with fresh roasted coffee beans done in small batches. If you really want to impress coffee-loving Dad, try ordering whole beans from Fire Dept.Coffee plus a beautiful GreyFoxPottery Minnesota handmade mug as a set. Fire Dept. Coffee Beans come in regular and liquor infused: Rum, Tequila and Bourbon. Add in a few Mocha Latte Eat Your Coffee Bars for an extra kick and your Java Basket for Dad is complete!
