Father’s Day falls on Sunday September 1 this year.

Cruel, I know. The first Sunday of the month falls on the first day of the month, leaving us with no extra September days to get ourselves ready.

Don’t worry. I’ve gone and done all the hard work for you.

I’ve sourced out the best gifts going around for dads this year. And I’ve even categorised them for you.


Budget: 2pk Holeproof Explorer Socks – $25
If he’s a fan of outdoor adventures, he’s definitely never going to have enough Explorer socks. Those things are the greatest.

Special: Kathmandu Solar Torch + Charger – $49.98
This little torch is super handy. Charge it in the sun during the day, and use it as a torch at night. Plus it acts as an emergency charger for personal electronic devices.

Splurge: Weber Portable BBQ – $259
If he hasn’t already got one, you can’t go past a good portable BBQ. You can pack it up and take it anywhere from camping trips to the beach.
