Last Minuet Father’s Day Ideas

Father’s Day is this Sunday, and if you still need a bit of help to find the right gift we have few great ideas to share with you!

Something for the Cook

salt block


If your Dad is a connoisseur of flavors a Himalayan Salt Block might be a great choice! The planks of pink Himalayan Salt are considered to be one of the purest salts in the world, it does not have a strong salty taste and will cook food evenly. Cooking on it could be a lot of fun, or simply using it as a tray to display food to give it a bit of extra pizazz. Dr. Tim Wright’s home favorite can be found at Williams Sonoma.


Something Sporty



A tour around one of his favorite team’s stadiums is a great gift!  If you are near the Dallas area the new Cowboys practice stadium in Frisco offers scheduled tours for about $33 a ticket. Other stadiums to consider are NRG Stadium, AT&T Stadium, and Fenway Park. Ticket prices don’t usually go above $35.
