For many people, our fathers are the most special and important men in our lives. They are a guiding force through troubled times, they’re wise and loving and above all, they’re incredibly supporting. Which is why, when Sunday 2nd September rolls around, it’s important to give our dads something they can cherish for Father’s Day.
We get it, buying gifts for Dad can be a difficult and tedious task, but if you’re struggling for ideas, we’re here to help. With our comprehensive gift guide, you’ll never be stuck for what to buy again!
So if your dad loves fashion, gadgets, gizmos or simply spending quality time with his loved ones, we’ve compiled a list of special gifts we think he’ll love.
The Dapper Dad
When it comes to buying clothing for dad, it’s not difficult to turn him from drab to dapper. The first step is to find out what colours, prints and styles he likes best – but be sure to stay within his comfort zone.
You can’t go wrong with a stack of classic button up shirts – we suggest sticking to a universally flattering blue colour. A visit to Gazman will sort you out with the latest styles and prints. Next, pick up a pair of cosy and comfortable pyjamas from Peter Alexander. The quality is second to none and it’s a great gift for the dad who loves to snuggle up with a good book (or two!).
Other versatile gifts for the Dapper Dad include some classy dress socks, a stylish pair of sunglasses and a handy toiletries bag that will stand the test of time.

If your dad loves nothing more than the latest gadget and gizmo, shopping for the tech-loving guy in your life is made easier at Stockland Balgowlah.
Keep dad ahead of the pack with these gadget gifts from a wide range of retailers in-centre. If he considers himself a bit of a foodie, Robins Kitchen is a one-stop shop for all the latest in appliances. For the coffee lover, why not get the siblings to pitch in and pick up the latest Nespresso machine for less than $300? Or, if brekky and brunch is more his speciality, the latest Breville egg cooker and poacher will have him feeling like Jamie Oliver every Sunday morning.
Alternatively, if he’s a little more of a tech-whiz, head into Vodafone and arm him with the latest iPhone or Samsung tablet. The possibilities are endless!

At the end of the day, no matter what you decide to gift Dad for Father’s Day, we’re sure that there’s one thing he values above all else; and that’s spending quality time with his loved ones. So, as an alternative to a material gift, we think dad would appreciate a simple afternoon of peace and quiet, relaxing with a few of his favourite treats!
Or, why not treat him to an afternoon of pampering at Moe & Co? They offer hot shaves, which is a luxurious treatment that he may not ever think to spoil himself with. Or, for an extra special gift, pop in to see the Flight Centre team – a weekend escape to a beachside destination could be just what he needs to unwind.
Following that, head home for an afternoon of relaxing with a stack of his favourite magazines, a new book and a freshly brewed cup of tea. Spend the rest of the day without a worry in the world, chilling out and simply enjoying each others company.
No matter which gifts you choose this Father’s Day, the most important thing is that Dad feels loved and appreciated by the people who matter the most in his life. And that’s the most perfect gift of all.
