I Love You, Dad

Shop for Pop at Salt Lake City's Ward & Child



If your dad is anything like mine—a man who has everything he needs—ignore that completely, because your dad will want something from Ward & Child (678 S. 700 East, 801-595-6622) for Father's Day. Better known as The Garden Store, this sweet shop has been specializing in home and garden décor for almost two decades, and there is always something unique to find, including exquisite outdoor pots, gardening tools and books, fountains, pillows, and furniture. Its selection of indoor furniture and décor is just as incredible. Stroll around the outdoor gardens and get inspired to create your very own haven. The problem is you may never want to leave! Here are my picks for that special guy you call Dad: (What an honor to be a Dad. Thank you, Dad, for bringing me into this world and loving me like you do, and thank you to my husband Steve Goorman, for being our family's rock and handyman. Now go out and shop, and show them your love.
