  • I had a find at Aldi they had Darrell lea bags for $14.99 and heaps of other small dad gifts worth a look

  • We usually go with food, it is hard to think of meaningful presents every year that he will use and appreciate. We are lucky enough to have all the basics so present time is just an extra.

  • When all else fails a darrell lea dads bag usually goes down well…..or an adrenaline experience voucher for an adventurous dad also some great deals on groupon /scoopon

  • I’m actually looking at Emporium Hampers for him. The selection on their website is amazing and the prices are great too.

  • BrianaLouise, I love your idea. Very special and so sweet!!

  • We also make a yummy lunch and cake.

  • I’m getting my dad and my husband both wooden phone stands for beside the bed that are personalised to say ‘daddy since 2017’ ‘poppy since 2017’ and a leather bracelet with myself and kids named on them.

  • Kids will make a gift or choose something special – they come up with their own unique ideas.

  • CD of favourite artist. Good book. Something for the car. Voucher for dinner at his favourite restaurant. Work/gardening gloves. Day trip out somewhere nice/different for lunch. Gift card for Bunnings or Supacheap Auto. Homemade cookies/muffins.

  • His favourite brand of perfume or the watch that he was longing to have might be one of the best idea for father’s day I can think :)

  • I’m thinking of a home cooked surprise dinner of some sort of seafood which he loves but we mostly can’t afford – I’ll splash out and buy it for him.

  • I haven’t decided yet for this year
    But some ideas ????:
    – personalised photo frame
    – personalised wallet/ engrave wallet
    – handmade gift (I once made a photo frame with tools around the photo frame as my husband is a truck mechanic)
    – variety of Cadbury chocolate bars (hubby asks for this most years ????)
    – personalised glassware
    My main suggestion is to check out some Etsy stores or small businesses that do cool giftware and they have so many ideas and personalised presents
