For many of us, our fathers are the most important men in our lives. They’re reliable, caring, compassionate, and above all, incredibly supportive. So, this Father’s Day it’s important that we give our dads something unforgettable, or do something special with him to show how thankful we really are.
However, if gift shopping isn’t your forte or you’re met with the ‘no need to spend money on me” speech, we’re here to help. We’ve taken the anxiety out of shopping by putting together a list of special gifts we think he’ll love.
Whether he’s a fashion fanatic, a tech wizard, or just enjoys some quality time with his nearest and dearest, we’ve got him sorted this Father’s Day.
The Dapper Dad
Fathers can be difficult to buy for, especially when it comes to clothes. But fashion for dads isn’t as complicated as it appears. All you need to start with is a general idea of what colour, style and print will suit your darling dad.
With Father’s Day being in springtime, why not steer towards a floral print or bold colour? Our favourite would have to be this stylish button up from Tarocash. But if Dad isn’t a fan of fancy details, stick to the standards that he knows and loves. A revamp of his denim collection might be just what he needs to go from season to season seamlessly.
However, if your dad has enough denim to sink a battle ship, swap the jeans for a smart pair of chinos to add a dapper element to his style. A deep blue or black is a wardrobe staple he’s bound to appreciate. And of course, some new accessories can really freshen up an old outfit. Our top pick has to go to these cool as a cucumber Ray Ban sunglasses from OPSM.
Angus & Coote Citizens Mens SS Watch $139, OPSM Ray Ban Sunglasses 0RB3648 $285, Tarocash (Campaign Image), Tarocash Benny Stretch Chino Pant $59.99, Tarocash Magic Wallet $29.99, Tarocash Essential Tie $29.99, Tarocash Stirling Slim Floral Print Shirt $89.99, Williams Shaw and Smith Wrath Shoe $129.95, Just Jeans Mitch Leather Belt $44.95

When it comes down to it, all Dads just want to feel cherished and appreciated. So, this Father’s Day, instead of buying him a material gift, why not put together your own Father’s Day basket, tailor made just for him? Spoil him with his favourite snacks and treats to make him feel indulgent for a day. Pair that with his favourite beer to show him the time and energy you’ve put in to creating something so personal and unique.
All hardworking Dads deserve a little RnR, and a little bit of pampering can go a long way. Spoil him with a deep tissue massage at Magic Massage, or a fresh cut from Just Cuts. Or you can pick up a copy of his favourite magazine so he can relax the day away with a good read.
If you’re really indecisive when it comes to buying presents, we recommend you steal our top tip and get dad a Stockland gift card. That way he can choose something he loves from his favourite stores with no time pressure involved. Why not make a day out of it and take dad out for some lunch as well as a shopping spree? He’ll value the quality time just as much as searching for a new purchase.
