Make dad smile with a thoughtful gift this Father’s Day

Father’s Day is right around the corner and if you’re planning on buying your dad another pair of socks, we have one word of advice: don’t. We bet his underwear drawer is already full, so take a look at our gift guide and show him how much you care with something he truly wants. And because we know that the ultimate Father’s Day present is to spend some quality time together, we also picked some great activities that you can experience and cherish together.

1. The Sporty Dad
For the sporty dad, the key word is comfort. Pick something that’s versatile and crafted from high quality fabric, so that he can wear it over and over again. A quality polo ticks all the boxes, just make sure it is made of premium cotton for a super soft touch and fit, but most importantly it will channel that cool, sports-inspired vibe your father will love. A multi-purpose bag for dad to fit all his gear in is a great idea too. Look out for one that has multiple pockets to save him searching around for keys and wallet, and offers flexible carrying options so he can be on the move in full comfort (and style!)

Where to take him:
For all the dads who enjoy sports, getting tickets to a sporting event is always a good idea – even if it sounds cliché. It’s actually a great way to soak up the excitement of the cheering crowd and reminisce the days when he was the one taking you to a game. Check out what’s going on in your area, as a number of big matches are happening around Father’s Day, such as the SBL Mens Grand Final (Sept 2 in Perth), the Socceroos vs Thailand (Sept 5 in Melbourne) and the Sydney Roosters vs Gold Coast Titans (Sept 2 in Sydney).

2. The Outdoors Dad
If your dad always has an excuse to spend some time outdoors, and looking good is also a priority, you can’t go past a classic Bomber Jacket. Extremely versatile, it the ideal top layer for an outdoors excursion, yet styled enough for everyday wear. The best accessory for the on-the-go dad, is a bag that will accommodate all his essentials. A holdall is both practical and stylish, perfect for weekends away.

Where to take him:
To please the outdoorsman, throw a backyard barbecue or surprise him with a camping trip (we know which one he’ll prefer!). Not only will you be able to get away from the city hustle and spend some time in nature, it’s also the perfect occasion to bring the whole family together. There are plenty of beautiful campsites throughout Australia, just make sure to pick one that will suit your needs. The rest is easy: pitch a tent, go on a hike, grill some marshmallows and catch up around the campfire. If you don’t have the luxury of an entire weekend, opt for a day trip bushwalk or fishing session.

3. The Business Dad
For the corporate dad, his business shirt collection is never complete. A fail-proof choice is a shirt rich in quality and comfort. Opt for a neutral colour for the most versatility, or a checked print for a modern update. A classic necktie is a good addition, keep it stylish and simple, consider a slim shape in 100% silk for that premium feel.

Where to take him:
This year, instead of giving your dad another bottle of scotch, why not take him on a whiskey blending class instead? Whether he’s an amateur or a connoisseur, you will both find it fun, interactive and informative. If your dad is more of a beer drinker, consider a local brewery tour, with craft beers tasting.
