Father's Day gift ideas: What kind of Dad are you buying for?

We all have different dads who are into different things. 

But making them feel extra loved on Father’s Day should be the same for everyone.

Whether you show your appreciation through a homemade card or organising a family day out, it’s great to have a day to show them just how much we love them.

For some, dads are hard to buy for. So to help you along we’ve put together a whole heap of great ideas to cater for all types of dads and budgets. From sporty dads to foodie dads you’ll find a gift idea to suit.

 

The Sporty Dad

For the running dads out there, Podium Podiatry stock a variety of running shoes for both road and trail running from $229. Their footwear specialists will know exactly the right shoe for the type of running they do.


Have you got a fisherman or a hunter for a Dad? Smiths City has a range of fishing accessories and equipment starting from $10. Their hunting range covers all those accessories he might need too, from knives to freeze-dry meals.

 

 

The Geeky Dad

Those dads who are constantly googling the world map need a globe in their lives. Not only will it keep them entertained for hours they’ll be able to teach the kids a thing or two. It also makes a beautiful feature in any room. Options Gifts and Homewares have several sizes available, ranging from $156-$285.


There are plenty of Star Wars fanatics out there. And Gateway Games is a Star Wars heaven. Keep dad happy with the Star Wars Monopoly version for $46.90. Fun for all the family too.


Omni Tech have all the gadgets you could ever need for the techy dad. Bluetooth speakers, handsfree kit, battery power packs ranging from $49 and phone cases from $10.


 

The Handyman Dad

Dad might need a new tool to start a new project or maybe an upgrade because he’s worn out his others. But because he might be a bit picky with his tools, go with a gift voucher from Hammer Hardware. They have a range of hand tools as well as power tools that dad can choose from.

 


Give Dad some garden inspo with the new release book from Andy Ellis available at Paper Plus for $39.99. It features a wide range of backyards from Kiwi heroes Kieran Read, Richie and Gemma McCaw and heaps more.


For the organised handyman who likes things to be done in an orderly fashion, get this DIY noticeboard for the garage. From Kmart for $14, it’s a super stylie way of creating a to-do list for those DIY jobs around the house.


The Foodie Dad

Is breakfast dad’s thing? Treat him to a delicious big brekky at Columbus Coffee. It’s a great family friendly cafe where you can all relax with good food and coffee.


Maybe Dad is more of a dinner person? If so, take Dad to The Orchard Bar and Restaurant for a tasty dinner. With steaks, pizzas and burgers on the menu, you can’t go wrong.


Did you know you can buy Patrick’s Pies in bulk and choose your own flavours? You can stock up Dad’s freezer with 24 pies from $110, and of course with his favourite flavours.


 

The Stylie Dad

Wild South has a range of classic, stylish clothes. Their fabrics are of a premium quality that will last. Maybe Dad needs a new shirt for work, or a smart sweater to wear out? With their winter sale, they have shirts from $39 and knitwear from $99.


If Dad is pretty fussy about his hair and has a certain style he goes for, get him booked into Rodney Wayne. They have experienced men’s hair stylists that will be able to create exactly what Dad wants.


Get Dad to relax with a back, neck and shoulder massage from Immerse. A 30-minute massage for $49 will relieve his stresses and tense muscles, leaving him refreshed and ready to go.



 

We hope we’ve made the task of buying for Dad that little bit easier. Our stores will be ready, on hand to help you get exactly what you need to make Father’s Day a special day.

And we hope your Father’s Day is a super happy one 🙂
