Father’s Day present ideas
A good sleep-in followed by brekky in bed
Sleep as a gift? Yes. Sleep might be the most in-demand treat for any parent, anywhere. But as we're talking Father's Day, you can spruce it up a bit – we're talking sleep mask, earplugs, comfortable pillow, perfect bed (if you can stretch to that) - the ultimate sleep experience. Companies like The Goodnight Co™ can create your father a personalised sleep experience so he'll wake refreshed come Father's Day, just in time for breakfast.
Long seen as the classic Mother's Day opener, we forget that almost everyone appreciates a sleep-in followed by a home-cooked breakfast in bed. Think café style pancakes adorned with crispy bacon and berries, chef-level scrambled eggs or snuggle in some Orange Hot Chocolate for dad to enjoy - while you do the dishes.
Reward his inner connoisseur
Whether it be whiskey, cheese, or coffee, reward your dad with something he is passionate about, or perhaps might like to know more about. Knowing that winery, distillery and coffee house visits may be out of reach for most right now, online is your best bet.
For the coffee lover, you can't go past giving the gift of, well, coffee. Padre Coffee offers a box set – a great one-off gift guaranteed to satiate any caffeine enthusiast, or try Play-Ground coffee if you're after a more personal touch. Simply by answering a few questions, Play-Ground coffee will curate the perfect coffee selection for your dad. Plus, if he is quite specific with not just his coffee but the process of making it, look no further than Small Batch for the perfect drip-coffee experience.
Next, let's talk cheese. Regardless of whether your dad is a cheddar man, prefers a complicated blue or polishes off half a wheel of brie in one sitting, it's never been easier to cater for just what your dad would actually like.
14 days of cheese is a good place to start, and they've got an online cheese festival called Get on the Cheese running from 27-28 August, with tickets available now.
Delivering to our cousins all up and down the east coast of Australia (check website for a full list of where they deliver too), Cheese Therapy is also a great go-to if you're cheese-loving dad lives interstate.
And finally, for the whiskey appreciator, Whiskey Loot has Drinks with Dad. You simply select the whiskey package of your choice, and then Whiskey Loot will send out a package to you and to your dad – just let him know to keep an eye out, so he's not empty-handed on your Father's Day Zoom.
