We all know that finding the perfect Father’s Day gift can be tricky. Although you want to ensure that you get him something that he’ll actually use, you’d probably also like to get him a unique gift too – something meaningful or funny, maybe even a little bit of both. Whether your dad’s the next Gordan Ramsey, a wicked MacGyver or training like he’s in the Olympics, we’ve got some brilliant gift ideas that he can use in and around the home. 

The Braai Master father
If your dad has claimed the position of family Braai Master, we’re certain he’d appreciate a motorised grill brush or a personalised apron. If your dad already has those, a unique gift may be a BBQ branding iron with changing letters. This way he’ll be able to put a unique and personal mark on all of his grills.

The dad who loves to entertain
If your father has invested time and energy into his at-home bar and enjoys a lovely evening of entertaining and mixing drinks, we’d recommend a personalised whisky decanter paired with an ice ball mould. If he prefers his drinks shaken and not stirred, he’ll be sure to love a cocktail shaker kit with cocktail glasses. If, however, your dad prefers comfy nights in, gift him with a popcorn machine and a mini projector to guarantee a smooth impromptu movie night.

Gifting the sentimental dad
For all the sentimental dads who love keepsakes and special moments, get creative and reach out to a graphic designer to design a custom illustration of your dad’s favourite family picture. If your dad is a bookworm, custom order an illustrated book or comic where he’s the story’s protagonist.

The health-conscious & fitness father
If your dad spends a lot of time in iron paradise, invest in his fitness journey and get him a smartwatch or scale. For the dad’s who love their at-home gym, opt for adjustable weights or gym attire. If your dad is more concerned about his diet, you could also get him a healthy snack subscription box.

Ideal gifts for the tech-obsessed dad
For the gadget-loving dad, your options are endless. You could gift him with a new smart TV or smart dimmable lights which he can control through an app. Alternatively, your dad might enjoy a wireless charging platform that charges his phone as well as any of his other smart wearable devices. If you want a more personalised gift, get a digital photo frame preloaded with all of his favourite pictures.

Fathers get FOMO too
Even if your dad doesn’t necessarily show it, he’s probably a sentimental guy who loves being a part of your milestones and most likely has a fear of missing out on your big moments. So, once you’ve finally decided to start searching for your dream home, let your dad tag along with you during the home buying journey. With his experience, he’ll know exactly what questions to ask your real estate agent regarding the property.
