Father's Day is just around the corner and if you haven’t organised something for Dad yet then we’ve got a few ideas to get you started. Forget about the socks and Bunning’s gift card this year – it’s time to ditch the boring old gift card and really knock Dad’s sock off!
Sports mad Dad
If your Dad loves his sports then we’ve got some ideas for great Father’s Day gifts! Why not buy him some season tickets to his favourite game – or if the budget won’t quite stretch to the whole season, shout him a ticket to the next home game and make sure you go along with him to really make his day. A subscription to his favourite sporting magazine is another great idea that’s sure to please.
Adrenalin junkie Dad
So your Dad’s a bit of an adrenalin junkie huh? Then head on over to Adrenalin and take your pick from some heart pumping activities that will have him screaming like a wild thing. From skydiving and jet fighter flights to abseiling and fly boarding you’ll find some fantastic Father’s Day ideas here for the Dad who loves a bit of excitement.
Rev head Dad
Blokes and their cars – they go together like bacon and eggs (which by the way, Dad would love for breakfast this Father’s Day morning). If you have a rev head Dad then a few good options for you are to grab him a V8 hot laps experience, get him going sideways with a rally drive or even feeling the need for speed with a motorbike thrill ride. Check out all the gifts for Dad that will really wow him this Father’s Day at Red Balloon.
If your Dad fancies himself as a bit of a Matt Preston when it comes to the gourmet world then you can’t go past a dinner out at a 5 star restaurant - and if you want to really impress, book him in for a degustation meal at a top restaurant near you. If that’s stretching the budget a bit far, try doing the gourmet thing at home and whip Dad up a fancy Father’s Day dinner that’s full of all the finer things in life.
There’s nothing better than kicking back and socialising with some friends so if your Dad loves to spend time with his mates, a boys weekend away will never go amiss. Or to keep things a little cheaper, why not buy Dad a bottle of his favourite tipple to share with friends at their next get together.
Fishing is one of those things that you either love or you hate but if your Dad can’t get enough of it then a new rod or reel will always go down well. An afternoon out on a fishing charter vessel is another option that he’s bound to enjoy, particularly if you go along with him to make a day of it.
For Dad’s who like to pound the pavement, hit the gym, jump on a bike or any other form of physical activity then you’re in luck because there are loads of cool gift ideas for Dad this Father’s Day. Runner? Some new running shoes will always be welcome as will a heart rate monitor or a pair of running shorts. Gym junkie? How about a Fit Bit, a weightlifting belt or some new gym gear! Bike rider? Grab him some new Lycra, an aerodynamic carbon seat or even a new puncture repair kit.
Sun loving Dad
If your Dad can’t get enough of the sun, blue sky, water and sand then this is a fantastic time of year to send Dad off on a tropical holiday. The bite of winter is still in the air in many parts of the country so a few days or a week sitting in the sun and sipping a few cold ones is the perfect antidote to the chilly weather!
