Your one-stop Father’s Day gift guide
August 19, 2019 By Southpoint Tuggeranong
It’s that time of year again: Father’s Day is almost upon us. Skip the coupons for quality time and socks and get the number one man in your life one of these gift ideas.
FOR THE TECHHEAD
What better gift than the sound of silence? Give dad some peace and quiet with noise-cancelling headphones. The Skullcandy Venue Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones are great for travel or comfort and come with Venue, a built-in voice assistant so he can message his friends or get directions. Get them from JB Hi-Fi.
FOR THE FAN
Bring out your dad’s sentimental side with a piece of memorabilia he’ll hang onto forever. Whether he’s a revhead, music aficionado or sports fan, you can pick up something that will always remind him of you and his first love from Signed Memorabilia.
FOR THE FITNESS JUNKIE
Upgrade your dad’s rusty old weights with some new equipment that looks just as good as it performs. The Celsius YBell comes in three sizes and can be used as a kettlebell, dumbbell or push up aid. Get them from Rebel Sport.
FOR THE INTELLECTUAL
We have a rough idea of where we come from, but where are we going? If your dad is constantly posing these kinds of existential questions before you’ve even had your morning coffee, a page-turner may just satisfy that inquisitive mind. Pick up Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow from Dymocks and watch him start scratching his head.
FOR THE TASTEMAKER
You can never go wrong with a bottle of bubbles. Get your dad a bottle that reflects how accomplished and aged to perfection he is. Treat him to a special vintage from Liquorland to celebrate another year of fatherhood.
FOR THE TRENDSETTER
With summer coming up, it’s time to start cycling the brighter colours back into a dark winter wardrobe. Help your dad embrace the warmer weather with some snazzy business shirts. Check out Connor for everything from subtle patterns to bright florals.
