Father’s Day gift guide 2017

Dads aren’t always the easiest people to buy gifts for. Practical, down-to-earth and not too fond of being fussed over, dads are a unique breed—and finding an appropriate way to honour them on Father’s Day can be hard for even the most creative of us offspring.

Sure, you could go the old tie, golf balls or shaving kit route, but chances are, pops grew tired of those years ago. So what’s left? What can you give dear old dad that’s just as special as he is?

Sunday 3 September is looming so, in case you need a little inspiration, here’s our top picks for dad:

1. Zilfer

Have a dad who loves the outdoors? A hiker? Biker? Runner? Fisherman? Gift him Zilfer’s active-proof phone wallet that makes toting around his most prized possessions easy, safe and, most importantly, stylish. Zilfer’s case is water-resistant, durable and designed for all kinds of activities, and with free worldwide shipping, it’s cheap—and easy—to get your gift on time for 3 September.

2. Autosmart

Dads love their cars. Aside from us real-life kids, their cars are their babies—they clean them, care for them and take great pride in them. Give your dad the tools he needs to really pamper his favourite ride, with AutoSmart’s pro-level cleaning and detailing products. From detergents and cleaners to polishers and protectors, AutoSmart has it all. Plus, there’s free shipping on all orders over $50.

3. Event Cinemas

Sometimes, the best gifts are ones that you can share. If your Dad’s more interested in experiences with the family—why not gift him a voucher to Gold Class, or Moonlight cinemas—Australia’s premier outdoor cinema? Enjoy the latest on the big screen in the name of Father’s Day. Maybe Dad can shout you a popcorn.

5. Zebra Green Cafe

If you’re based in Sydney, after you’ve hit up the cinema, head over to Zebra Green in Bondi Beach for a tasty Father’s Day lunch (on you, of course!) You can even give dad a little souvenir to take home; Zebra Green offers delicious barbecue sauces that’ll give those snags a little extra zing next time he fires up the grill. Zebra Green takes pride in its handmade sauce recipes that have been refined over many years. Their hand-bottled packaging is unique and the labels aren’t too bad either. The sauces are available online and stocked all over Sydney.

Brewtopia’s unique Label Builder Tool provides you with the ability to build your own label using a wide range of label templates. Or, if you’ve got a design ready, you can supply yours instead.
