With less than a week to go until Father’s Day, time is running out to get Dad a thoughtful present that shows him just how much you care about and appreciate him. But don’t panic, we’ve created a guide to help you find the perfect Father’s Day gift for dad, or even just that special man in your life!

For the Funny Dad

So, dad reckons he’s the funniest man on the planet? Show him how it’s really done with tickets to a show by his favourite comedian, or introduce him to your favourite up-and-comer. Not a dad joke in sight.

For the Foodie Dad

He’s got a palate that would put any restaurant critic to shame and fancies himself an amateur sommelier. Why not feed his love of good food and wine with a night out at one of the city’s hottest restaurants? Grab a voucher for two and join him on a foodie adventure, or let him turn it into a romantic night out with mum.

For the Muso Dad

Records have made a serious comeback in the last few years, so jump on the bandwagon and give dad a dose of nostalgia with a record player. As for the vinyls themselves, a trip to your local Vinnies or Salvos should yield some musical gems.

For the Workaholic Dad

Pampering isn’t just for the ladies! If your dad’s the type to spend hours at a desk every day, hunched over and stressed out, help him reconnect with his mind and body with a gift voucher for a massage. It could be just what he’s been needing!

For the Geeky Dad

Lucky you - geeky dads are the easiest to buy for! You can’t go wrong with merch from his favourite franchise, whether it’s Star Wars or the OG Super Mario games. Otherwise, why not get him a virtual reality gaming experience? It’ll totally blow his mind!

For the Adventurous Dad

Adrenaline-junkie dads love nothing more than an experience that’ll get their blood pumping! Whether it’s skydiving, a flying lesson, game of paintball or go-karting, as long as it makes his heart rate soar, he’ll be thrilled.

For the Sporty Dad

Since dad’s already the most dedicated fan already, why not make it official and deck him out in his favourite team’s merch? Or, if you want to be really generous, buy him season tickets and he’ll thank you forever.
