Don’t worry – if you’re like us and Father’s Day has somehow managed to sneak up on you. But we’ve got you covered. Here’s a curation of fail-proof presents to gift the most important men in your life.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay HX headphones | $880
For your music-loving father who loves to blare old school rock, a pair of Bang Olufsen wireless noise-cancelling headphones will make him feel like he’s listening to a live concert from the comfort of his home.
Breville The Barista Pro Coffee Machine in Black Truffle | $899
For the dad who loves a latte and has totally subscribed to the coffee snob culture (who hasn’t? ), a new Breville coffee machine will let him live out his burgeoning barista dreams.
Willow Bend Coffee Godfather Beans | $28 for 500g
With a good coffee machine must come good quality beans. The GodFather blend from local roasters, Willow Bend Coffee, is a full-bodied roast with notes of almond, caramel and chocolate – the perfect addition to any Father’s Day present.
Great Grape of Grenache Pack from Regions Cellars | $171
A curated wine pack from the South Australian booze experts at Regions Cellars is hard to go amiss for the dads who love a bottle of something good and reckons it tastes even better because it’s from SA’s ‘backyard’. Our pick? The Great Grape of Grenache Pack: six bottles from labels across our wine regions showcasing the vibrant tipple.
A tour and a paddle at Pirate Life
For the beer loving dads, a tour of Pirate Life – Port Adelaide’s craft beer brewery – and cheeky celebratory paddle or pint of their booze afterwards makes for a great day out.
Roof Climb at Adelaide Oval | starts at $109
Regardless if your dad is an AFL tragic or loves test cricket, a gift card for the Adelaide Oval Roof Climb is a bucket-list-worthy experience. See the city from new heights, 50 metres over the field, and hear some of Adelaide’s history.
A ruby jumper, belt or wallet from the iconic RM Williams store is the perfect fool-proof present for the dad that’s hard to buy for. Our top picks include the Mulyungarie Fleece ($119), the Patterson Creek Vest ($109) and the Jerrawa Belt ($139).
For the dad who loves to pamper themselves (and rightfully so), help him invest in some quality skincare, aftershave and products this Father’s Day.
Curate a luxe leather toiletry bag (like this from one Double Oak Mills) with a Bro-To Properly Clean Facial Cleanser ($33) and Face Hero oil ($18), the Grown Alchemist Balancing Toner ($38) and Polishing Facial Exfoliant ($65), and a bottle of your dad’s favourite aftershave.
Valo Adelaide 500 Grandstand seats | starts at $105
Fast cars, loud music and the smell of diesel mark the return of the Valo Adelaide 500, set to take over the east end this December 1-4. If your old man loves the thrill of live racing, a ticket for the grandstand is the way to go. Add an extra concert ticket to the Saturday concert – featuring Jimmy Barnes, Ice House and Noiseworks – to sweeten your Father’s Day gift.
