When it comes to a gal’s ride or die, there is no one who compares to her dear ol’ dad.
From the moment we’re born they take the lead, carefully guiding us through life’s many obstacles with an admirable (albeit stoic) grace.
They continue to show us how to boss up and take charge in our own lives, while somehow managing to keep an ever watchful eye over us like the natural protectors they are.
So to say “thank you for all you do” this Father’s Day, we’re warning you with plenty of time for postage, to get your gift sorted. Go classic with a men’s fragrance that’s made for Father’s Day, up his skin care game with some grooming gadgets, or get that facial scruff in order with one of the best beard oils. No excuses this year.
Below, we’ve hand-selected a dossier of truly impressive swag to give to the man who started it all and show your appreciation.
Here are nine gift ideas to surprise your dad with this Father’s Day.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer in ‘Black & Nickel’
Fast-drying and smooth styling are ensured with this intelligent heat-controlled hair dryer from Dyson. It’s made to minimise the potential for heat damage while styling, and has an aerodynamic design that provides a comfortable balance when held in the hand. This is honestly the ultimate hair styling tool for men, though it also has the potential to double as a pretty mean ray gun if you’re so inclined – dads we’re looking at you.

Aesop Moroccan Neroli Shaving Duet
In the world of dad swag there is nothing more gentlemanly than an airtight shaving ritual. This shaving serum and post-shaving lotion are infused with the delicious scent of Moroccan neroli, but it’s the hydrating and skin-soothing benefits that will make this duo a mainstay in your dad’s routine.

DUBLINER Irish Whisky
Honestly, who doesn’t love a cheeky dram? There’s almost something ceremonial about gifting your father a decent bottle of his favourite tipple (especially considering he was the one who bought you your first legal drink). So what better way to congratulate the old boy than with a bold, warm blended Irish whiskey that’s been aged in bourbon casks for three years.
$46.95 at Dan Murphys
Foreo Luna 3 for Men
Give dad the gift of clean skin this Father’s Day with the app-optimised Foreo Luna 3 for Men. Specifically designed to simultaneously stimulate hair follicles (and subsequently stubble growth), while also effectively cleansing skin, this nifty piece of tech utilises T-Sonic pulsations to tone and cleanse skin of dirt and impurities.
$299 at Adore Beauty
L'Artisan Parfumeur Tenebrae 26
A perfect pick for the grounded gentleman who dispenses sage words of wisdom, this uplifting, woody fragrance is rooted down by notes of earthy resin and ancient aromatics that transport the wearer to the refreshing depths of the natural world.
$325 at Myer
Theragun PRO Percussive Therapy Device
If your dad’s an athletic guy or he’s just fond of a massage, then you can’t go past a massage gun. Designed to target muscle tension, warm up the body before exercise and ease sore limbs, there really isn’t a gun available that can beat the capability (or street cred for that matter) of the Theragun. We’re talking continuous battery life, a rotating arm, and an industry-leading 2 year warranty.

THE SKILLS The SKILLSET
If your dad’s still desperately trying to wrap his head around the confusing world of skin care, then we suggest setting his mind at ease with this simple 3-step routine from the homegrown natural grooming brand THE SKILLS. He’ll find everything he needs from an anti-ageing foaming face wash, to a cleansing clay mask and a lightweight, mattifying, anti-ageing serum to finish.

Sony PS-LX310BT Turntable with BLUETOOTH® connectivity
If your dad’s a purist when it comes to all things music but you’re trying to drag him into the 21st century, then might we suggest this sleek, slimline turntable with Bluetooth compatibility from Sony. Groove along with dad as he takes you through his vinyl collection or leave him in peace with his favourite set of wireless headphones – either way he’s going to enjoy clear listening of some classic tunes.

DeLonghi La Specialista Maestro in ‘Matt Black’
We don’t know about you, but our dad’s are fiends for a coffee. Keep the workaholic adequately caffeinated with this pro-level piece of tech that will allow you old man to become a barista in his own right, churning out authentic Italian coffee in just four steps.
