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.

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).

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.

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.

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!

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

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. :)

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.

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!

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