Your Complete 2018 Father’s Day Gift Guide

Category: gift

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

Father’s Day is all about celebrating the special and important men in our lives. Through every turn and crossroad in life, our dad’s remain supportive, caring, wise and above all, loving. Which is why, when Father’s Day rolls around for 2018, it’s the perfect opportunity to spoil dad, just like he deserves.

It’s important to give thanks for our dad for everything they’ve done for us, but we know that shopping for him isn’t always easy. So, to save yourself some stress this year, we’ve compiled a complete list of gift ideas that we think he’ll love. 

From the Dapper Dad, to the Gadget Guru and the sentimental soul who loves spending quality time with his loved ones, we’ve rounded up the perfect gifts to spoil him with this Father’s Day. 

The Dapper Dad 

Let’s face it, not all dads enjoy hitting the shops (even at the best of times), but more so when it comes to fashion. We’re here to tell you it doesn’t have to be a headache! Find out what colours, prints and styles your dad likes best, but if you’re really not sure, stick to the classics like denim and tan, and you can’t go wrong. 

Update his denim collection with a new pair of jeans in a dark hue (black will go with everything) – we particularly love Jay Jays for affordable and on-trend styles. Next, head into H&M and pick up the perfect trans-seasonal piece: the denim jacket. At less than $60, it’s the kind of gift that will stand the test of time (and turn him from drab to dapper too!). 

To elevate his look to another level, pair your new fashion finds with the latest accessories. A suede boot from Target will complement many of the wardrobe items he already owns, and a new cologne from David Jones will have him feeling like a brand new man.

Gadget Guru

Calling all tech-loving dad’s – this one’s for you! If your dad is partial to a gadget or a gizmo, get in his good graces with a selection of gifts to keep him ahead of the tech-pack. 

For the gift that he doesn’t even know he needs (but will fall in love with regardless), visit David Jones and pick up the Google Home for less than $200. It’s the kind of present that he’d never think to buy himself, but will be forever grateful for. Whilst you’re there, grab the latest Apple TV 4K HDR so he can watch all his favourite shows and movies in amazing cinematic vision. 

If he loves the outdoors and enjoys staying fit and active, a GoPro from JB Hi-Fi and Fit Bit from Big W are perfect gifts for the guy on the go. But, if he’s a little more on the chilled side, perhaps he’d love an update to his music technology. A pair of wireless headphones and retro-feel speaker will allow him to take his music wherever he goes and are perfect for either private listening or partying with friends.

Making Memories

Finally, no matter what you decide to gift Dad this Father’s Day, when all is said and done, the things that matter most to him are spending quality time with the people he loves most. So, as an alternative to flashy material gifts, why not gift him an afternoon of peace and quiet, spent relaxing with a few of his favourite things?

The perfect Father’s Day for your dad might include a day spent lazing in comfortable pyjamas from Peter Alexander, kicking back with some tasty treats and a few of his favourite magazines. Or, he might enjoy a spot of pampering with a fresh cut and shave from Barber Industries. Finally, relive his youth and spend the afternoon cruising the streets on the latest board from Skate Connection. 

Finally, if you know there’s something Dad really wants, top up a Stockland Shopping Centre Gift Card and make a day of shopping together. You’ll enjoy the quality time spent with him and he will be able to pick up the gifts he’s always wanted!

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.
