Of all the gift-giving days on the calendar, Father’s Day gift ideas can leave even the most thoughtful shoppers baffled. What gift could possibly be good enough for a man that’s too self-sufficient (or proud) to ask?
We’ve curated a list of Father’s Day gift ideas suitable for the purpose-led Dad so you can show your appreciation for all the good they do.
For the Fashion-Conscious Dad
Pony Rider, National Project Tee, RRP $89.00
This thoughtfully designed National Project Tee is a classic everyday piece that Dad will find himself reaching for, time and time again. This versatile tee is made with 100% Organic Cotton providing a soft layer while remaining breathable for ultimate comfort.
These staple tees come in three different earthy colours with hand screen water based inks printed locally. For every product purchased from the National Project Collection, Pony Rider donates 1% of funds towards the National Park Foundation. Promising a present for Dad and Mother Nature!
Will & Bear, Andy Hat, $149.00
You’ll wanna invite your Dad everywhere in this timeless fedora made with 100% Australian wool. The minimalistic style featuring an adjustable sweatband ensures the Andy Hat has a size available to all Dads.
You gift keeps on giving, too. Will & Bear gives back to our natural environment by planting ten trees for every plant sold.
For the Adventurous Dad
Riparide, Gift Voucher, from $50.00
After all our Dad’s have done this year, they could probably use an escape this Father’s Day with a Riparide voucher. Riparide’s booking platform gives voice to Australia’s most influential stories behind the wonderlust-worthy regional stays and local adventures. \
Giving Dad his long awaited getaway from reality to unplug, relax and reconnect with nature. Valid for three years from the date of purchase, Dad can decide when and where he undertakes his regional escape (you might even score an invite).
Don’t be fooled either, Riparide offers more than just cabins and tiny houses, with luxury options like the River House at Coba Point, NSW (pictured above). So why not get the whole family to chip in and book Dad that epic weekend getaway?
Bellroy Hide & Seek Wallet, $129.00
When it comes to Father’s Day gift ideas, the Hide & Seek LO Wallet by Aussie brand Bellroy is for anyone who wants a little more out of life (and their wallet). Keep your cards and cash in the main sections, and a secret stash of notes or business cards under the hidden flap. Great for (future) jet-setters who want to keep their currencies separate or their cash hidden from prying eyes. RFID protection in the lining adds further security to your valuables.
If you Dad loves cars, then why not gift him a ride in a Tesla through Australia’s only solely electric car rental and sharing company. Let Dad take the modern and carbon-friendly route on his next weekend adventure, with options of over 60 electric cars to choose from.
Booking has never been easier with evee, as Dad can decide where and when to pick up and return the car.
For the Food & Wine Loving Dad
The Hidden Sea, Wine Box, $98.00
The Hidden Sea is an Aussie wine company on a mission to eliminate plastic from our oceans. Their gift box contains the trio of wines that appeal to the no-nonsense, any day wine drinker and is a no-brainer when it comes to Father’s Day gift ideas for wine lovers.
With every bottle of The Hidden Sea purchased, the brand has pledged to remove the equivalent of 10 plastic bottles from the ocean in a completely trackable process, so you (and Dad) can monitor real results of the good you’re doing.
Jasper Coffee, Coffee Beans, $62.00
Jasper holds Australia’s largest selection of Single Origin beans, Blends, Fairtrade, Organic & Specialty Coffees. Their mighty Ethiopian Sidamo showcases one of Africa’s best exports, and is an all time favourite for coffee-loving Dads.
Every cup of coffee has a footprint. By becoming a 100% Carbon Neutral Coffee Company, Jasper Coffee is leading the way in creating a sustainable future. Jasper Coffee has also become the first and only coffee company in Australia to earn B-Corp certification, meaning this is one of those Father’s Day gift ideas that’s good for Dad, and the planet.
For the Dad who has everything
Thankyou, Shampoo and Conditioner Bar, RRP $12.00
Gift giving doesn’t have to cost the world. Going plastic-free has never been easier with these Shampoo and Conditioner Bars from Thankyou. Their plastic free range is sustainably sourced, made with recirculated water, no product wastage and packaged in recycled cardboard.
The plant-based bars will leave dad feeling clean and nourished while giving the gift of a good hair day, one he never knew he needed.
