Gifts To Make Dad Smile This Father’s Day

Category: gift

With Father’s Day fast approaching, we’re taking the guesswork out of gift shopping. 

Fathers are the most significant and important men in our lives. They’re hardworking, devoted, dedicated to helping our success, and above all, incredibly loving. So, this Father’s Day it’s important that we give our dads something memorable or do something special to show them our appreciation and gratitude. 

However, if you’re struggling to find inspiration for a gift for Dad or you’re met with a ‘you don’t need to buy me anything’, we’re here to help. We’ve taken the pressure out of shopping by putting together a list of special gifts we think he’ll love. 

Whether he’s tech obsessed, loves his fashion or just enjoys a day spent with the family, we’ve got him sorted this Father’s Day. 

The Dapper Dad 

Fathers can be difficult to buy for, especially when it comes to fashion. But don’t panic - we’ve got all the tips and tricks you need to select the perfect gift he’ll love wearing. 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 spring, why not opt for a bright collared shirt or polo? Our favourites would have to be the funky prints available from Lowes, bound to spice up any wardrobe! But if Dad isn’t a fan of bold colours, stick to the classics that he knows and loves. A new addition to his denim collection is just what he needs to refresh his wardrobe for the upcoming season. 

And of course, a few new accessories can refresh any outfit. A new watch or a dapper belt could boost dad’s style up to the next level, however our top pick has to be these ever-so stylish Polo sunglasses from OPSM. 

Harris Scarfe Milleni Tab Wallet $29.95, Lowes Street Denim Jeans $29.95, Lowes Hawaiian Shirt $25, OPSM Polo PH4110 Sunglasses $294.95, Target Eddie Suede Lace Up Boot $49, Target Men’s Casual Belt $10, Target Short Pyjama Set $20, Target Andrew Watch $20, Williams

Keep him up-to-date and ahead of the rest with the latest gadgets. If he enjoys taking care of his body and keeping fit, he’ll love the Fitbit Alta from Big W.

Making Memories

When it comes down to it, all Dads just love to be loved. Why not go the extra mile and put together a personalised Father’s Day basket for him to enjoy? If he’s a foodie (like most dads we know) pick up a selection of his favourite treats for him to relish throughout the day. His go-to chocolates are always a good place to start! 

Or perhaps he prefers a little pampering every now and then. If that’s the case, spoil him with a de-stressing massage at Healthy Care Massage, or a fresh cut and beard trim from Chev Hair. 

Alternatively use this Father’s Day to treat dad to a fun day out with his nearest and dearest. Check out what’s on at the Birch Carroll and Coyle Cinemas for the latest release dad will love. He’ll appreciate the time together as much as any other gift. 

So, no matter which way you choose to go gift-wise 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.
