This year, instead of ties, cologne or power tools, why not celebrate Father’s Day the Aventura way…Here are some great ideas for gifts you can find within city limits:
After working hard all day on perfecting their golf swing or winning a tough tennis match, busy Aventura dads would especially appreciate being pampered with a rejuvenating massage or spa treatment at the Willow Stream Spa at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle – or maybe a makeover at Miles & Lyle – the luxury barbershop that lets clients bring their own 14 karat gold scissors.
Gift certificates from Whole Foods Market in Aventura are a naturally good present – but if you want to take dad out for dinner, make reservations now at great Aventura restaurants like Ocean Prime, Grill on the Alley or Bourbon Steak – just make sure to bring along some siblings or other family members willing to split the bill!
If dad’s wardrobe needs some updating, Aventura Mall is the perfect place to find all the right looks – but if you want to give him the greatest gift of all, promise he won’t have to come shopping with you again any time soon. .
Get your dad a membership to the Aventura Community Recreation Center or a Starbucks gift card so he can stay in good shape and have enough energy to chase after the kids. Movie buff dads would also love a gift certificate to AMC Aventura 24 Theatres so instead of a cartoon or chick flick, they can pick which summer blockbuster they really want to see!
For a highly personalized Father’s Day gift, give dad a picture postcard of you and your family proclaiming, “Thanks for moving us to Aventura – the city that makes it feel like Father’s Day every day!”
