Dads: they’re possibly the hardest person to buy for. Whether your dad is into the latest tech gadgets, or loves to chef it up in the kitchen, there’s an art to buying gifts that they’ll actually love. Keeping them in mind is the first step.
Buying them socks and a pack of beer may be the go-to, but we’re here to help you get a bit more inspired this year. To help pick the perfect gift which dad will actually like, and fits within your budget (however generous or tight that may be), we’ve rounded up favourite gifts for this year’s Father’s Day.
For the technologically inclined
Within Budget: Perfect for working out, wearing to work or just listening to tunes, you can’t go wrong this Father’s Day with buying dad a shiny pair of Wireless Headphones. With either over the ear or bud styles from XCD from Kmart in a variety of colours at an affordable price, find a pair that dad won’t want to take off.
Money Savers: If you’re pinching pennies but still want to treat dad, opt for finding him a new durable phone case from the likes of Kmart. Make it as personal as you like by picking one in his favourite colour or print, or keeping it simple with a really sturdy design.
High Buyer: We all like to look and feel good, and our dads are no exception. Find your dad a cool, modern shirt or jacket courtesy of Tarocash, to give him the wardrobe refresh he didn’t even know he needed.
Within Budget: If apparel is too risky, you can never go wrong with a pair of classic sneakers you know they’ll wear again and again. Much loved shoe brands like Converse, Nike and adidas from spots like The Athletes Foot are great for the cool dads, the sporty dads and the comfy dads.
Money Savers: Help dad relax and feel cosy at home with a comfortable new robe from Kmart, perfect for layering over a new pair of PJs and paired with some warm, fluffy house boots. A gift so comfy you’re sure to make dad happy.
High Buyer: Perfect for the do-it-all dad, investing in a new Portable Charcoal Grill from Kmart is the perfect gift just about any dad would love. He’ll be showing it off to his friends in no time.
Within Budget: Whether your dad has a green thumb or is just after a little extra greenery around the home, a new decorative plant from Coles, or fun new pots or seedlings from Kmart is a fun DIY gift.
Money Savers: You don’t have to spend a million bucks to make dad feel a million bucks. Update dad's toolkit for cheap with a new set of screwdrivers, or buy him a portable bike repair kit from Kmart to help him finish off those pressing repair jobs that are waiting to be done. Lend him a helping hand finishing off his half done projects for extra brownie points this Father’s Day.
