Obviously, different fathers like different things; there isn’t an easy ‘one size fits all’ approach to the perfect gift. In this case, unique, personal and quirky are attributes that will often lead you in the right direction.
Consider these five options for Dad this Father’s Day.
There really is nothing more personal than a barbecue or outdoor grill for Dad this Father’s Day. Most men treat the barbecue as a personal fiefdom; a testosterone zone where the man can cook meat for his tribe and gather with like-minded males to discuss ‘stuff’ and solve the problems of the world. Visit barbecue specialists Zeigler & Brown’s website at www.zieglerandbrown.com.au to see what is on offer for your dad this Father’s Day to make him king of the grill.
A Craft Brewery Tour
If your Dad is into his beer and likes to experiment a bit with flavours and textures, consider buying him a ticket to a craft brewery this Father’s Day. Craft beer makers are popping up across the world, and many offer tours of their breweries, along with lunches and free samples along the way. While it will be a great day for Dad, you might have to buy a ticket for yourself and go with him as a designated driver.
An Outfit from his Favourite Team
Does your dad love sport, but only from the vantage point of the viewing stand or lounge chair? Then get him an outfit from his team’s supplier so he really feels part of the gang on game day. Most teams these days have a range of outfits available to the public, from jerseys and shorts to scarves and lounging robes.
Flying Alarm Clock
This is not only a novel gift, but something that is very practical for the father who has difficulty getting out of bed in the morning. The flying alarm clock stops the sleeper from continually tapping the snooze button. Instead, when the alarm sounds, a helicopter propeller starts up and the alarm flies about the room. The only way to stop it is to get out of bed and catch it. Dad will love it, though he might no longer love you.
Jumbo Duct Tape Book
Is your dad one of those men who thinks just about everything can be fixed with duct tape? Then buy him this wonderful novelty book. It is full of fun, comical and silly ways to use duct tape around the house, yard and anywhere else you can think of. Not very practical, but Dad will get hours of enjoyment out of it.
Every father is different, but there is always something for everyone out there. It just takes a little looking. Start planning now, be resourceful, keep an open mind and you will find the perfect gift for your dad this Father’s Day.
