five things your dad actually wants for father’s day

Scroll down to content

Goodbye winter, au revoir leaving work in the dark and hello springtime!

I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve blinked and August was over. If you’re anything like me lately and struggle to remember what day it is, chances are you’ve forgotten it’s Father’s Day this Sunday.

I’ve compiled a few ideas so rest assured you won’t have to roam through Westfield trying to find dad a winning gift, and you can spend more time shopping for yourself! Put down the socks and move away from the tie stand, let’s be more original this year, dad deserves a little more thought.



The beauty is in the detail with each shoe handmade in Italy using centuries old techniques and unique materials. Located in The Galeries in Sydney’s CBD, the store only receives a handful of each shoe to the country meaning your dad will have a one of a kind shoe he’ll be proud to flaunt around the office. 

With the starting price around $350, grab your siblings and put in to get dad a gift that’ll last years. Click here for more info.



If dad travels a lot, why not offer him the gift of hydrated and refreshed skin? The smart sizes meet carry-on requirements so he’ll be able to chuck it in his onboard luggage to use during and after his flight. 

A steal at only $41, it’s easy to pair with one of the following gifts to really spoil dad.  Click here for more info.



I love Bunnings.

Every time I go in there I am overcome with a sense of DIY-ability and start imagining how I could easily install a vertical herb garden on my balcony or updating all the handles in my kitchen. Share the love of the DIY with dad by grabbing a voucher from Bunnings.

PS if you head over on the weekend, you can grab the voucher and a famous sausage sizzle- WINNING!



Who doesn’t love going to the movies, but with ticket prices these days + popcorn and a drink requiring a small bank loan, a voucher can be much appreciated.

With films like Robin Hood and Creed II hitting screens later this year, you’ll have dad reaching for the malteses and coca-cola asap.

Best of all, you can buy them online from here.



Instead of buying dad a bottle of wine, why not grab him a membership to a wine club? I recently signed up to the Wine Selectors wine club and am loving it!

Every six weeks (you can choose the frequency) I receive 12 delicious bottles of wine delivered straight to my door. He‘ll be sipping on Shiraz and throwing back a Tempranillo in no time, is there anything better?

With tonnes of varieties available, check out the membership options available here.

But most importantly, don’t forget to tell your dad you love him.
