Shopping is not what dads are known for. Celebrating Father’s Day is indeed the perfect occasion to show your dad, husband or grandfather how much you love them. Hallmark cards can be found online last minute, but a well-thought gift will put that smile on his face, especially when it comes from one of the most original stores in Miami.

Little Havana Cigar Factory
1501 S.W. 8th St.
Miami, FL 33135
The finest is in the heart of Little Havana, that is if dad smokes cigars either habitually or on social occasions. Cigars are known to raise your spirits as well as take your mind off of troubling thoughts. If you know which cigars your dad smokes, you should buy a few and have them gift wrapped. If you don’t know, you can take him with and let him enjoy the experience of lounging and relaxing in environment of the shop. The present will not come wrapped but it certainly won’t be forgotten.
