Since the role of dad has actually been played by a beloved uncle for most of my life, I'd treat 'Uncle Dad' to his new favorite thing--Laloo goats milk ice cream. I served it for dessert on Memorial Day and he and the whole family can't stop gushing about it.

My husband loves to try new kinds of cheese, so some selections from your cheese shop are definitely in order for Father's Day, paired with fresh bread from the bakery and organic crackers. Maybe we'll celebrate early....

This will be my husband's 2nd Father's Day, but my son had just been born at Father's Day last year. One year later, he is at such a fun age. Sometimes I feel bad that I get to be at home with my son all day while my husband is at work - he works so hard so that I can be at home with our little one! We live in Baltimore, and our son and I spend our days biking and walking all around the city having fun! A $100 Whole Foods gift card would allow us to have a cookout to celebrate my husband and everything he does for us! My son and I could walk to our local Whole Foods store and stock up on all of Daddy's favorite things - lamb, steak, fresh veggies, fancy cheeses - a feast fit for an amazing husband and father!

Thanks for asking. I'm a dad to two great kids, ages five and 14 months, and I would like enough tri-tip, corn, mixed greens, wild rice, and great beer to host a BBQ for my dad, father-in-law and family. While we can't choose our family, we can choose what to feed them, and I'd love to toast this crazy, happy, teary, mess of a life with those that I love and who love me back. We only live once (I think), so let's make the best of it.

We just got a Big Green Egg - but we're missing all the cool grilling tools like heavy duty tongs and thermometer!

I know my Dad would love a lobster tail, steak and baked potato with all the trimmings! It would be even better if it were from Whole Foods!

My dad LOVES Whole Foods and it would absolutely make his day if he received a gift card this father's day. :)

Steaks and Seafood and Beers from Africa (Black Mamba would be ideal) and he loves the goat cheese quesidillas and the cane sugar sodas (okay those are more for me and my brother) but if we are happy then he is happy (or at least that is what he says). Thanks

Hi everybody.. I really think that men need to pamper themselves more and I know that my husband sure works hard as a mechanic and could probably use some of your nice lotions (manly smells ^_^) and he would also probably enjoy some great multivitamins fromyour store- they'd keep him energized and healthy. Other than.. he's also very happy with your awesome cracker and cheese aisles. Great snacks!! Thank you so much for providing such beautiful products.

I know my Hubby would LOVE either great Fish or great Fruit for Father's Day. No fruity Wine....

My husband is the most wonderful father to our son. One of my wonderful memories is going as a family to Whole Foods (my 2 yr old son loves the food samples!) to pick out ingredients for a restaurant-style dinner at home. With the help of the Whole Foods staff and their instructions, we've made lamb chops, scallops, and other dishes with ease! I hope to make a similar meal on Father's Day to show my husband how much we love him!

My dad has been sick for almost all of his life with Hepetitis C. The homeopathic products, herbs, and vitamins that he gets from whole foods helps him on an everyday basis. Any help at all with his "medicine" would make him feel a whole lot better, his body and his pocket. Plus my dad just loves the fresh veggies, cheeses, and meats he gets from his local Whole Foods. My dad deserves it all.

The best way to make father's day memorable is to just spend time with dad, the family and friends and enjoy a nice bbq--Whole Foods does have the BEST grilling meats and veggies to go with it!

Money to buy fresh fruit, fish, & some of my dad's favorite items for Father's Day dinner would truly make my dad hop. Like many people he was one of the first to lose his job during the recession. What makes it worse is that he's not that far away from retirement. For more than 5 years he's moved around & from his family to follow jobs; those moves were all so he could bring money into the family. He's truly my hero for that & because he never took unemployment until this last layoff. He's got alot of pride. All he wants to do is make sure his family has a roof & food to survive. On Father's Day he should get the best organically grown fruits, cage free meat, & seafood that he would love to get if he were working full time.

Of course we will BBQ it up! I am the cook and don't know but it will definitely involve fresh veggies and some kind of steak for the husband.

i think that you should have a very large Beer Tasting. Showcase the beers with the higher alcohol content. Maybe pair the beer with some cheese and cold cuts. go a step further by focusing on beers that are from the Stores State. I usually try to buy California beers. Luckily we have some great breweries here in California.

I'd love if you could help us connect with Dad's who don't have their kids any more. Those are the dads I'd like to reach out to and send them an email hug. Maybe host a dad's day event at a Whole Foods where anyone can come and make dad's feel welcome and good about themselves. I lost my dad (too young) and I miss him a lot but I could share that love of dad's with those who have lost their children too young. Maybe if Whole Foods can host an event or an online forum on Father's Day or something like that - it would be nice.

Only Whole Foods has exactly what my husband wants for Father's Day. Every time we go there, there are a couple things he LUSTS after that we've been waiting for a special occasion to buy. The first thing he would die for is a RADIUS TOOTHBRUSH. He is always complaining about small toothbrushes! It's hysterical. He will NEED that toothbrush, too, because he DROOLS whenever we pass the pastries at the bakery. He used to live in France and likes a good pastry. Every time we go there is something different and totally creative- he'll look longingly: oooohhh, egg nog cheesecake, or chocolate filled croissants. . . you know, things that would take me three days to whip up in my own kitchen. And the best part is, he won't be making fun of how much high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils are in his dessert!

My husband loves to bar-b-que. Steak, Prime Rib, Baby Back Ribs you name it he does it. He is a father and Dad of our 2 girls. We've been loyal Whole Foods shoppers for over 10yrs. There's nothing like antibiotic, hormone free, pesticide free food like the food we have been purchasing and eating from Whole Foods. Whole Foods is the only place we shop for our food. HooRa!

I'd make my dad his favorite meal - pesto! When I was little he used to joke about how his life had led him to fighting with his four-year-old daughter over the last of the pesto, when he hadn't even known what pesto was until he hit thirty... I'd buy lots fresh basil, plus pine nuts, garlic and olive oil and make him a feast he woudldn't have to fight over!
