As far as holidays go, Father’s Day is the perfect time of year to thank your dear ol’ dad.
You could keep things simple and dress up a $6 greeting card with a personal anecdote that’s sure to make him giggle, or you could go a step further and give him something that’s sure to grab his attention.
Whether that’s something splashy like a flacon of men’s fragrance or the passive aggressive suggestion of cleaner sensibilities (face wash is the bare minimum dad), we’ve hunted down a range of gifts perfect for the first man in your life.
Burberry Hero Eau de Toilette 100ml Gift Set
If you’re gonna go the route of fragrance this Father’s Day, we suggest turning the gift of cologne into a holistic aromatic experience. In this set, Burberry’s Hero EDT is flanked by a complimentary shower gel and a travel-friendly bottle of the classic scent.

Gentlemen's Tonic Ultimate Gift Set
If your dad’s more of a traditionalist when it comes to shaving, he’ll start having heart palpitations when he sees this gentlemen’s razor set, which includes a mayfair brush, razor and stand, pre-shave oil, traditional shave cream, and soothing after shave balm.

When it comes to your dad’s skin care routine, we get that he’s probably not over the moon about the whole process. This simple two-step set includes a gently exfoliating face wash and nourishing moisturiser infused with the scent of aloe, charcoal, patchouli and almond oil.

Ever You French Navy Luxury Silk Sleep Mask
If there’s one thing we know everyone needs (especially if they’ve had kids), it’s more sleep. Help dad get some much-needed shut-eye with this soft, silk sleep mask that’s gentle on the skin.

Triumph & Disaster Spice Natural Deodorant
If dad’s too cool for a cologne, try slipping him a luxuriously scented deodorant to step up his fragrance game instead. This spicy deodoriser features notes of clove, lavender, frankincense and bay leaf, and utilises scientifically-proven natural actives to tackle body odour too.
$28 at The Iconic
White Possum Australian Whiskey Tasting Set
Want to indulge dad with a pricey tipple? Instead of harassing a Dan Murphy’s employee for recommendations, let him try these 12 samples of Australian craft whisky from around the country.

Hyperice Hypervolt GO Black Percussion Massage Device 55000 001-00
If your dad loves a gadget, we suggest giving him one of these percussion massage guns. He can finally get that kink out of his neck and he’ll be too relaxed to notice the most recent ‘unusual’ activity on his credit card statement.
