Dads are special to us all and Father’s Day is a great opportunity to demonstrate this. And guess what? It’s just around the corner! Sunday 5th September will be upon us before we know it, and this year we need to be more organised than ever. While the country is still battling the dreaded Covid 19, our postal and delivery services are getting overwhelmed. This is leading to delays, so as your dad taught you (if he was a boy scout): Be Prepared!
So, what is the PERFECT Father’s Day Gift??? Men are hard to buy for at the best of times, and this year, when some of us are unable to get together, the challenge will be all the more difficult. However, our Father’s Day hampers always hit the mark – our wide range will suit every dad. Why give him one gift when you can give him a hamper full of treats that you know he will love? Read on for our gift suggestions and recommendations for reducing the stress and making your dad feel extra special.
The last 18 months have been stressful for everyone, and Dads are no exception. In fact, they may well be feeling the pressure more than most. Some of our favourite Father’s Day gift ideas for 2021 are those which will help your dad relax. Both our Hey Dad and His Relaxation Time include super soft micro plush robes along with other treats. Or give him a giggle with our Fathers Day Treats hamper – there’s a surprise message inside the toilet bag that will make him smile and think of you every time he opens it.
If your Dad appreciates the finer things, you can’t go past a personalised Father’s Day gift, so be sure to check out our Indulge Dad hamper. He will love the monogrammed soft leather toilet bag, and the Aromatherapy Company’s Sea Salt wash will help him relax while making him smell and feel divine. He can then enjoy a bottle of Robert Oatley’ velvety smooth Shiraz, and finish off his perfect day with a luxurious fudge bar just for one!
If your dad loves a brew or two then a slab of beer just won’t cut the mustard this Father’s Day. Why not give him one of our special beer hampers? There’s lots to choose from to ensure the perfect fit for your dad, and they all come with a selection of savoury treats! There’s the Corona Beer Hamper for the lime lovers, the Microbreweries of Australia hamper for those who prefer a crafty tipple (the Craft Beer Sampler is another crafty option), or the United Nations of Beer hamper for those that are missing their European travels. And if you’re struggling to choose between the classic gifts – socks and beer – how about both? Our Socks and Beer hamper keeps his toes toasty and trendy while also quenching his thirst.
We’re all spending more time at home. Unable to meet with friends and family, or even go to work, hobbies and leisure activities are more important than ever. Encourage Dad to branch out in the kitchen with a Paella Fusion hamper, or in the backyard with BBQ Essentials or BBQ Master. You may even get to enjoy the fruits of his labour.
A wine, whisky or cocktail hamper make the perfect gift for dads who may be missing a regular visit to the pub or local restaurant. For those aspiring mixologists, how about a Negroni Nights or Martini Time or even The Art of Mixology? That’ll teach them some new tricks!
Wine is always a favourite gift and a hamper packed with gourmet treats and nibbles to go with that special vino will make it even better! Either of our Robert Oatley Gourmet Gift hampers will make the perfect Father’s Day gift (shiraz for red wine lovers, and sauvignon blanc if your dad prefers white). There’s a gourmet food & wine hamper to suit every budget – you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Whisky for Dad will appeal to anyone that loves a good Scottish single malt on the rocks (without watering down the taste). Or how about warming him on the inside and out with our Whisky Warming Glenmorangie hamper – he can enjoy a tasting session for when he wants to extend his whisky knowledge. Also consider giving him a fun boy’s night in with our Games Night hamper – poker and whisky – sure to bring out his competitive streak.
Some of our Dad’s will have a sweet tooth and others will have a savoury bent to their palate (or both maybe). Chocolate Heaven is our go-to dad’s day gift to indulge the sweet side (and there’s plenty for him to share with you too)!
Mixed gourmet hampers are always popular and make a great present idea for Father’s Day, as there’s something for everyone. Try Binge Night Nibbles to see him (and the rest of the family) through a night of Netflix, Foodies for a more gourmet experience or go all out on The Deluxe which contains almost every snack you can think of!
Plan ahead – Father’s Day in Australia is on Sunday 5th September, only a few short weeks away with our last delivery day on Friday 3rd September.
Order early – our postal services are swamped at present (almost up to Christmas 2020 levels) so get those orders in with plenty of time – allow at least a week for standard post (free for all hamper purchases).
Upgrade to express delivery to ensure your Father’s Day gift arrives in time (last delivery is Friday 3rd September) – it’s an additional $13. While we try our hardest to get your packages there on time, please remember that when the gift hamper leaves our warehouse it is in the hands of Australia Post.
Left it to the last minute and live in Sydney? Well, you are extra lucky as our same day delivery couriers can get it there that day, for an additional fee. Just remember to order before 11am.
