Father's Day Gift Ideas

Let’s face it, dads (and let’s not get started on grandads) are up there with the toughest family members to buy presents for. With Father’s Day on the horizon, we’re here to make life easier with gifting ideas for every kind of dad. Whether you have a Sports Dad or a Cultured Dad on your hands, here’s our roundup of gift ideas guaranteed to wow him.

Dad About Town

Identifying features: Fond of a cufflink, always smells nice, knows more about artisanal beer than you do.

A classic cologne is a solid idea for Dad About Town. Try Prada’s Luna Rossa Black available at Myer and David Jones, which could well become his new signature scent plus bonus points for the trés chic bottle. Other options for this dad include buying him aftershave or shower gel in his tried and true favourite scent, a cool, well-designed chess set if he has a competitive streak from Gamesworld or headphones for seeing out those deadline days at work – head to JB Hi-Fi or the Apple Store.

Sport-Mad Dad

Identifying features: Has a pedometer app and is not afraid to use it, voluntarily signs up for half marathons, is currently considering Jiu Jitsu classes.

Does he already own a FitBit? If not, run, don’t walk, to JB Hi-Fi – these remain the accessory du jour for athletes everywhere. With this on his arm, dad will soon get addicted to tracking everything from his daily steps to the quality of his sleep. You’re spoilt for choice for this dad, as sports gear will always be welcome. Head to The Athlete’s Foot and replenish his gym shoes, he will thank you for the new kicks when that 6am alarm goes off.

Cultured Dad

Identifying features: Plays an instrument, owns a set of charcoal pencils, cares about fonts.

This guy is a dream to shop for. All you need to do is head to your nearest craft supplier like Kmart or The Reject Shop and stock up on homemade craft activities, or buy him a fun set of Lego to build with the kids. But because it’s Father’s Day and he’s probably a bit sentimental, why not try getting a photo framed for the occasion?

Shed-Tinkering Dad

Identifying features: Owns a tool belt, really likes upcycling barrels or palettes, rarely comes inside the house when he’s home.

How about a Bluetooth speaker that has a decent range for those long nights in the shed? JB Hi-Fi have you covered. You can even find waterproof and shockproof ones that will make his tinkering all the more enjoyable. Good quality work socks from Myer will make his projects more comfortable.

Foodie Dad

Identifying features: Knows his pork hock from his pork belly, buys eggplants seasonally, has a cookbook collection.

This dad likely already has everything he needs in the kitchen department, but if there are any gaps, some great ideas are a hand blender, a fancy garnish grater, or a great new release cookbook to add to his collection from House, Wheel & Barrow or Matchbox. Another option is to focus on the meals that he eats outside the house. Does he have a cool bento-style lunchbox and lunch bag? A favourite reusable coffee cup? He’ll thank you for buying him fun, quality products he will use on the daily lunch run.

Stylish Dad

Identifying features: Owns multiple hair products, enjoys patterned, brightly coloured socks, uses all available wardrobe space.

This guy knows what he likes and appreciates quality when he sees it. A beautiful leather satchel? Tick. Head to David Jones for something in classic black or rich brown tones. What about a wardrobe update? A beautiful shirt from the likes of Gazman or yd., or new jeans from Universal Store or new smart casual kicks from Aquila will always be welcome. If you’re not confident choosing, (shout out to all the picky dads out there), why not take him on a shopping spree with a Westfield Gift Card, which you can purchase at Westfield Booragoon’s Concierge.

Happy shopping! No matter the dad, now is your chance to spoil him with a thoughtful gift he will love. You’ve got this!
