My dad loves him some veggies!

post cards around the store suggesting creative ideas how a family can spend father's day together

Cathy Scott says …

My husband would love to receive nothing more than all of the fixings for a big family cookout to share with his children and grandchildren: steaks, salmon fillets,fresh vegetables to grill, lots of fruits that make everybody in the family happy and bakery breads and desserts! He likes it all, but he likes sharing a meal with his family best.

Lynn says …

The love of my life and father of my two boys loves his new smoker/grill. Picking out a nice piece of salmon or some lamb chops and a great coffee. A selection of cheeses and wine to wrap up the meal would delight him (and me too).

marianne cancellieri says …

my dad likes tasty oriental foods suiatble for a hearty lunch and more important for a dinner at home.you folks are on the right direction but sadly lacking in more tasy items

Ginny says …

Any dad would love a thick juicy marinated steak and some fresh shrimp cooked on the grill with a side of corn on the cob grilled right in the husk. Add a salad and some good Belgium beer and you will have a happy pop.

michelle says …

D. Falk says …

I love Whole Foods. Pick me, pick me!

Don Dreffs says …

spill the beans and tell what spice is in the chicken spicy salad at the Ann Arbor, Mi store. Taste great!

Cynde says …

My Dad would love a dinner that I could purchase(with this gift card) from your store=wild salmon with spinach salad. He loves it everytime I make it. Happy Dad's Day.

Barry says …

My dad is 75 years of age and he has never eaten organic food so a $100 gift card from Whole Foods would be good to introduce him to organic foods.

Denise Walton says …

Make Father's Day Special By Celebrating Father's Everyday By Communicating, Loving, Spending Quality Time & Obeying Your Father.

Helen says …

Anything that has to do with a bbq would be fantastic.

Cynde says …

My Dad would love a homecook meal I could make with this gift card=wild salmon with spinach salad. Help me make my Dad feel loved.

Amy says …

My husband and daughter love to eat Whole Foods sushi. No one else in the family likes sushi much, so this is something special they can share. It may be the start of a new Father's Day tradition!

Stuart Jones says …

I am not a dad yet, but I know what a dad would like on Fathers Day. Pizza is good and on Sunday's it's a dollar off. You should have a bigger sign to let people know. Also, if you have any natural cologne for sale that would be good and reduce the price at the salad bar, only for Father's day, so it can be affordable for people with limited income. Stu

Abby G says …

My dad is a nuts and beer guy and since I'm still waiting for Whole Foods to sell beer (hint, hint)--I'm gonna get him some special nuts to complement his beer. :)

constance says …

My husband is a daddy to be, now that the pressure of being the provider is on the seafood at wholefoods would brighten his night,. Love ya honey!

Michelle D. says …

My husband loves to BBQ. For Father's Day he could have his pick of meat or fish & of course swing by your candy shoppe!

Bob Baxter says …

HappY father's Day!!!!

jennifer f says …

Mmmm! I'd get some fabulous fish for the grill, a great big watermelon and some of the store-made choclate truffles for a Father's Day feast.

Barbara Imperiale says …

My husband loves the fresh fruit, the organic whole wheat linguini, the baby back ribs, the organic breads, and more. Since we started shopping at Whole Foods, he has expanded his horizons and enjoys eating wholesome, delicious, natural and organic foods.

Carrie Schneider says …

My father love's healthy food that tastes good! Luckily for him Whole I am an expert at cooking healthy and can't think of a better place to pick up the ingredients. For father's day, my father would love for me to pick up some of the freshest ingredients from whole foods and whip him up my delicious homemade spicy pizza sauce (with a hint of anchovies) ontop it on my homemade whole wheat pizza dough, and then lightly topped with one of your best goat cheeses (I personally love the Almond Cheese!) A bottle (or two) of good red wine and maybe some frozen yogurt with crumbled ginger snaps for desert...yummy!

Jacqueline Hoshaw says …

My family loves Whole Foods Market! My daughter would love to take her Daddy shopping for his favorite organic spaghetti and barbeque sauces for Father's Day!!

Faina Shifrina says …

He will enjoy pampering beauty session with organic products. Especially those cracked feet need some smoothing.

Mika says …

free-range beef steaks, organic potatoes, organic field greens salad with walnuts and goat cheese and a lemon marscapone layered cake!!!

ES Daniels says …

My dad is the Grill Master Maven - GMM for short. He has secret bbq recipes for all sorts of seafood - it is to diiiiiieee for! Please pick us! You won't regret it. We will share with you - promise!

John Biggs says …

What I want for Father's Day are: 1. Great dark organic roasted coffee 2. Surf and Turf for grillin' 3. Some Belgian beer and Indian Pale Ale! $. To share with my family

Jennifer says …

It would be great for you to publish some ideas for super father's day brunch menus!

gregory k bird says …

my dad loves most of the cheese whole foods has to offer. 90 percent of the gift card will be used for cheese the other 10 percent for a bottle of wine from whole foods fantastic wine selection.

Elizabeth D says …

My husband works just as hard at his full-time job as he does caring for our two sons. He coaches their athletic teams, he volunteers at their schools and at our church - he has taught them to ride bikes and clean the house. He bathes them and reads books to them. He is the ultimate description of the present father. Both of our boys loved to play with dolls when they were little and I think every bit of that had to do with them wanting to care of their "babies" just like they're daddy does with them.

Kaylene Gagnon says …

We make our very own fire roasted salsa, along with homemade tortillas, carne asada, shredded chicken and all the fixin's for a wonderful family Father's Day! With my Gluten Free requirements and the fact we eat all organic, we spend around $100 every time we go to Whole Foods, which seems to be almost every day, so the gift card would be a HUGE help!

Marlen Kokaz says …

To make this father day special for my husband who is Bengali in origin, I am planning to prepare a seafood feast with at least two type of seafood (one would be turbo which we love to get) and perhaps either black sea bass or shrimps and steamed organic broccoli. Not to forget the fresh multigrain bread from the bakery and the herb butter from the seafood department to add even a little more excitement to out seafood fiesta.

Lilly says …

My dad totally deserves this, he has been through a lot this year and obviously I will make him a yummy meal no matter what!!!

Gaby says …

my dad loves their steaks. i hope he wins. Thankyou if he does win.

Erin Farrington says …

Our dad loves to visit Whole Foods when we visit Colorado to visit my brother. (Sadly Iowa does not have a Whole Foods Store YET....) He loves to go to the seafood department where he always is entertained, informed, and makes his purchases!

kelly g. says …

Lots of great vegan junk food: VegeStix, Kettle Chips, organic salsa, trail mix, So Delicious ice cream, Newman's cookies, Dandies marshmallows, Sweet & Sara S'mores, you name it!

Grazi says …

dad would love all kinds of cheese!

Mike Maita says …

My name is Mike and my Dad's name is Tony. Whole Foods Market is truly my Dads favorite place to shop. He has been taking good care of his body since he was a kid himself, and believe me you would notice if you see him. This last year has been a pretty tough year for us, In the fall of 2008 I was diagnosed with cancer, and since then have had several treatments, procedures, hospital stays and more. My Dad also lost his best friend to cancer recently this year, so that was extremely difficult for him. He recently discovered that his business is not doing to well and he is very nervous about the future for him and my Mom. I would love to treat him to something nice this year on Father's Day, however I have been out of work since my treatments began last September and money is really tight. If my Dad were to win this $100 gift card I know it would make his Father's Day, and to be honest it would make mine too! Thank you for considering us. Sincerely, Mike Maita

Kristine says …

My dad is newly widowed, so what he needs most is lovingly prepared food from Whole Foods.

Paisley Hillegeist says …

My hubby, Jon, would love a grill for father's day, and all the trimmings: Gloves, Steaks, BBQ sauce. . .

Sandra says …

Just let those steaks keep coming for my guy. thanks

Kathy says …

An over-the-top product for my hubby's father's day would be some thick steaks grilled on the BBQ. If I win the $100 g/c, will you come grill up some beef on our grill?

stacy says …

let the dad buy their own gift(s). that way you're certain that the dad will like and enjoy the gift. married for 15 years :)

Sanqui Rodriguez says …

Dad loves grilling. The meat at Whole Foods is the freshest and tastes the best. He also likes to drink organic beer. Then if he's not feeling himself the next day (from too much bbq or beer), Kombucha always helps him recover quickly.

Katie says …

My dad is a builder and about to go under with the new construction market taking a big hit in our housing market area. His business life and personal life is really down. I would just like to get him the neccessities because that's what he needs and can't afford anymore. -Katie

Wendy says …

We are in the middle of moving! Nothing would make fathers day happier for my husband than grilling out in our new yard. Nothing would help make than happen better than a Whole Foods Gift Card.

Michelle says …

I like to see gift packs put together like Whole Foods does for Mother's Day, i.e. sets of lotion, body wash, etc....only put together manly ones for the dads. I think some kabobs would be great for lunch on Father's Day, too.

Joy Donaldson says …

My husband is the father of 3 boys, he is a great dad. He cooks for the whole family and loves going to Whole foods, he considers this a special treat. I know a gift card from whole foods would mean more to him then anything else we could buy him. It would allow him to buy 100. worth of all his favorite cheese, beer, fish and other yummy things he looks at when we go shopping. I know this would make him extremely happy. thanks in advance.

Irina Missiuro says …

We love your store-baked Italian bread. At $2.49, it's a great value and tastes delicious and fresh. Sandwiches made with that bread are usually a hit at our house.
