With Father’s Day fast approaching, we’re taking the guesswork out of gift shopping.
Father’s are one of the most special and important men in our lives. Not only are they generous with their time, but they are loyal, caring and extremely loving. They are also incredibly deserving of being spoilt every now and then!
When Sunday 2nd September rolls around for another year, it’s the perfect opportunity to give thanks to our dads for everything they have done for us over the years. However, we know shopping for him isn’t always easy! So, save yourself some stress this year, because we’ve compiled a list of special gifts we think he’ll love.
The Dapper Dad
From the Dapper Dad to the Gadget Guru and the dad who prefers a more laid-back approach to the day, at Stockland Merrylands we’ve got the perfect gifts to spoil him with this Father’s Day.
Buying a gift for dad can be difficult even at the best of times, but when fashion is involved, it’s a whole different ball game! Start simple by working out what colours, prints and styles he likes best and remember if all else fails – stick within his comfort zone.
If it’s basic, trans-seasonal pieces he needs the most, you can’t go wrong with classic denim. A dark-wash pair of jeans from Plot Clothing will be a welcome refresh to older, more worn styles in his wardrobe. Throw in a stylish denim jacket from Connor and a statement button-up from Johnny Big and you have a selection of staple pieces that he can easily weave in to his existing clothing.
To elevate his look to another level, gift him some stylish accessories that will stand the test of time. A new watch from Kmart is an affordable option of a timeless style and a pair of sneakers in a lighter hue will keep him ahead of the pack.
Connor Gateway Shoe $49.99, Connor Karter Denim Jacket $89.99, Johnny Bigg Marling Stretch Print Shirt $79.99, Kmart Metal Band Wristwatch $20, Plot Clothing Siena Jean $99.95, Target Basic Toiletry Bag $10, Target Urbane Mess Grit Exfoliating Soap on a Rope $6, Tarocash Peaks Reversible Belt $29.99, Tarocash Magic Wallet $29.99, Black Art Fashion (Campaign Image)
If your dad loves a new release gadget or gizmo, gift-giving just got a whole lot easier at Stockland Merrylands. It’s never been easier to keep him on-trend and ahead of the tech-pack with the latest and greatest gadgets from a wide range of retailers in-centre.
If he loves the outdoors and staying fit and active, pick up the latest Fitbit from Big W along with a set of wireless headphones from JB Hi-Fi. Of course he’ll need a brand new phone to play his tunes – you can set him up on a plan or purchase the latest iPhone X outright with a simple visit to Optus.
Finally, if he’s a little more on the chilled side and loves nothing more than a sneaky video game (whilst he re-lives his youth), EB Games is a mecca for all things game-related.
Big W Fitbit Alta $149, Big W VS for Men Cut & Details Grooming Kit $49, EB Games New PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 Wireless Controller $99.95, EB Games Logitech G300S Optical Gaming Mouse $49.95, Insport Nike Brasilia Training Backpack $55, JB Hi-Fi Sony CH400 Wireless On-Ear Headphones $79.95, Optus Apple iPhone X POA, Rebel Samsung Gear Sport Smartwatch $449
No matter what you decide to gift Dad this Father’s Day, when all is said and done, there are only a few things that matter most to him – spending quality time with his loved ones and a day of relaxation. So this year, as an alternative to material gifts, why not treat him to an afternoon of a few of his favourite things?
If your dad considers himself a bit of a foodie, an afternoon spent pouring over a new recipe book from Kmart with a freshly brewed cup of coffee in his hand, might be a welcome reprieve from his usual daily rigmarole. Or, head down to see the team at Barber Junction and treat dad to a new ‘do’ and a fresh cut and shave – after all, a little bit of pampering never hurt!
Finally, if you really can’t decide what to get for Dad this year, 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.
