Father’s Day gift guide

I once heard someone say “A father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you grow.” I always think of this when I look at my girls playing with their dad – it’s such a special relationship, and one that should be honoured when Father’s Day comes around. 

Father’s Day in Australia falls on Sunday 2nd September, so I’ve compiled a list of top notch gifts for every dad. If you’re yet to find the perfect gift, you’re in the right place. 

For the Fast-Paced Father
GLOBBER NL 230 Ultimate Titanium RRP $230
Does your dad have a need for speed?! … and a need for childhood nostalgia?! This scooter is the perfect gift to give him a wheely good Father’s Day! Complete with 230mm bi-injection PU casted wheels, it’s one of the flashiest, fastest adult scooters in town. Its aluminum design makes for lightweight portability, while the CNC double clamp and wide aluminium deck means the ultimate in precision and stability. Ideal for the scooter school run, playing in the garden or zooming along the beach front, this smart, safe design is the perfect big boy toy for dads of all generations.

For the Foodie Father
Have you got the dad that’s upgrading his kitchen repertoire from beans on toast and Vegemite sangas?! Foodie fathers will love this organic starter gift set from Grampian Olive & Co. The selection of fine oils will add flavour to whatever dad’s whipping up this week – including truffle oil, caramelised balsamic and more.

Always getting dad’s voicemail? Yep – his battery’s gone again, he must’ve drained it streaming Breaking Bad on the way to work! If you’ve got a juiceless dad, the Belkin Pocket Power is the perfect lightweight gift this Father’s Day. Fitting neatly into a pocket or bag, this on-the-go portable charger is one of the most powerful on the market. It’s dual USB connection and punch-packing 15k system can refuel dad’s smartphone up to 5 times in one single charge.
