Let Australia Post solve your Fathers Day dilemma!

Stuck on what to buy dad this year for Father’s Day? Australia Post has taken the guess work out of gift giving with its specially curated Father’s Day Gift store. You’ll find universal favourites, such as the best selling Darrell Lea Dad’s Bag, as well as a large selection of store gift cards guaranteed to make dad smile on September 4. 

To streamline the gift selection process, Australia Post has categorized merchandise and gift cards into six Fathers Day Persona’s – the Sports and Leisure Dad, Tech Dad, Entertainment Dad, Adventurer Dad, Foodie Dad and Classic Dad

For sports minded dads like my husband, you cannot go passed the gift that keeps giving – a 12-month Men’s Health Magazine Subscription ….. plus a Darrell Lea Dad Bag for good measure! David would also appreciate the thought behind a Rebel Sport gift card as his workout wear is literally falling to shreds and urgently needs updating! Not that I’m complaining ;)

My dad can, on the other hand, best be described as a Classic Dad who appreciates good food and fine wine. He loves to dress well, however can be difficult to buy for (sizing and fit is impossible to judge off the rack) so I’ll be slipping a David Jones store card into his gift bag this year. Like most men, my dad is most content when well fed! The Best Restaurants of Australia gift card is ideal for dads who enjoy dinning at award winning restaurants, sampling wine bars or taking a cooking class. A 12-month subscription to editorial style magazine Halliday Wine Companion would be a welcomed gift by any wine connoisseur. 

I’ll also be purchasing a gift for my father-in-law this year. He works abroad (Tanzania) and can be away for months at a time, so when back in Melbourne he enjoys nothing more than experiencing all that our city has to offer with his loved ones. A jack of all trades and a movie buff, he’s best described as an Adventurer/Entertainment Dad and my top gift recommendations include a Village Cinemas gift card, Handyman magazine subscription (perfect reading material for a frequent flyer) and a Red Balloon gift card. With over 3,000 unforgettable experiences on offer, a Red Balloon gift card is bound to tick something off his bucket list this Father’s Day. A Lamborghini Supercar ride or City to Surf Harley Davidson Tour would be very received by my father-in-law and ensure I retain my pole position as his favourite (and only) daughter-in-law!
