Father's Day

This Father’s Day, make it one of his favorite days by recognizing the dad or father figure in your life. In case you’re short on time or need ideas for how to make the big guy feel extra appreciated on his special day, let us help get you started. On Father’s Day, give dad what he really wants—all from Publix.

Put Together a DIY Cooler

Grab a Styrofoam cooler and put together all of dad’s faves—chicken wings from the deli, candy, chips, chocolate chip cookies from our bakery and whatever else you know he enjoys. Personalize it by having the kids write notes or draw pictures on the cooler. Though the food and drinks inside won’t last forever, the memories made while creating something special for dad will last a lifetime.

Make Dad’s Favorite Recipes

Take care of the man who does so much for the family by creating the ultimate dad’s day menu. Keep dad fed all day with an easy breakfast, yummy snack, tasty entrée and scrumptious dessert. Help him wind down at the end of the day with a classic cocktail. You can find all of dad’s favorites here! Our meat department will also recommend the perfect cut of meat and share cooking tips and tricks so whatever you’re making turns out perfect.

Have Fun with Kitchen Hacks

If there’s one thing dads love, it’s a corny joke. More than that, dads also love tinkering with their tools and looking for ways to make things more efficient. Get the kids in the kitchen with dad and have a blast with some of our favorite kitchen hacks. You’ll find a hack for everything.

Pick Up a #PubSub

You can’t go wrong with a #PubSub. Any dad is sure to be happy with one. They’re the perfect option for a beach day, fishing day, picnic, camping trip or wherever dad’s adventures end up. Order online and pick it up in store to help save time!

Be There

All the gifts, food and drinks are great, however, what most dads want on the day of the year set aside especially for them is a simple phone call from their kids, or a thank you and acknowledgment for all they do. In the end, gifts are great, but our families are forever.
