Last minute gift guide for Dad

Dads are the best! You can always rely on them to join in on all the fun games, build (and have the first go) of all the new toys on Christmas and best of all, catch big spiders and take them outside.

It’s only fair that Dad’s get treated to a few special things on Sunday 3 September – and we know they’ll tell you not to make a big fuss, but you should anyway because he deserves it.

1.     Weber Q (Q2000) LP BBQ from BCF

Is your Dad quite the savvy camper? Get him this stainless steel BBQ which has a single spark igniter, cast allow lid and bowl and a thicker porcelain coating for easier cleaning – perfect!


2.     Peter Alexander Velour Thong Slippers

Give Dad a gift of comfort with these dreamy soft slippers from Peter Alexander. If you want to ramp up the pamper factor, get him a massage package at one of Canberra’s day spas.

3.     ASICS runners

It’s Spring time and that means Dad’s probably getting back into his fitness regime. Even though ‘Dad bods’ are totally in, it helps to always wear a good pair of runners to protect your feet for any kind of exercise, including walking.


4.     A new tailored suit

If Dad is into his fashion, check out Politix at the Canberra Outlet Centre for some seriously dapper shirts, suits and accessories to match. Dad will be ready for any occasion!

5.     Apple Watch Series 2

If Dad is a tech nerd, grab him the latest from Apple. With a built in GPS and water resistant to 50 metres – The Apple Watch Series 2 will wow him with more features to stay active, motivated and connected. There’s nothing worse than Dad not being in ear-shot of his phone when you need him…


Lastly, take the time to make Dad some delicious breaky and a strong hot coffee, or head out for a beer and watch the footy. Tell Dad you love him too – that always makes him a feel a bit spesh.
