With Father's Day right around the corner, some people are getting out there and getting that last minute gift for dad - and there are a few stores in Wapakoneta where you can do just that.

Dad's Toy Shop in downtown Wapakoneta says that they have had quite a few people coming in their doors to find the perfect present for a hobbyist dad - especially the kind of models that allow them to enjoy the weather.

"We have anything from planes, boats, cars, model rocketry, model railroading supplies, and model railroading sets, but usually airplanes and boats and cars are the big ones we sell around this time because everybody wants to be outside," said J.P. Metz, Co-Owner of Dad's Toy Shop.

Haehn's Florist isn't necessarily selling a lot of flowers for father's day, but they are seeing a lot of people stopping by to use a special machine that makes a personalized gift for their dads.

"We actually have done some very cool Father’s Day gifts, we've done all kinds of stuff, but one of the big things people have gotten a lot lately has been the personalized engraved gifts," said Sara Bylsma, a floral designer for Haehn's Florist. "We’ve actually had people who have gotten spatulas for the grill and they get the handle engraved, we’ve had picture frames, we've had plaques with sayings on them."

Those with the shop say that the personal touch people give these gifts makes them all the more special.

"I love seeing when somebody picks out a saying that’s personal to them - it just makes it a unique gift," Bylsma said.
