12 Father’s Day Gifts Your Dad Will Love

on 07 July 2017 in General News

Father’s Day is a day to show your appreciation for all that your dad does. It gives you a chance to celebrate the little actions that make your father special – things like loving you unconditionally and teaching you to love and respect others.

There’s a lot to be thankful for when it comes to the loving man in your life, and these are some of the ways you can thank him on Father’s Day (Sunday 3rd September).

Solar PowerPort 

For a tech obsessed dad, solar power ports like the Anker PowerPort Solar will ensure he stays charged wherever he goes as long as it’s sunny. Coming in various sizes and wattages, he can charge his gadgets in the middle of the bush when camping and feel comfort that he’s charging as he hikes. It’s free limitless power at his fingertips.

Whale watching 

Coolangatta is home to world class whale watching and in September, they’ll be out in full with their babies as they travel back down south. Most whale watching cruises guarantee you’ll see whales, meaning if you don’t, you’ll get another free day on the water. Head out in the morning and enjoy morning tea as you look for whales in front of the Coolangatta/Gold Coast skyline.

Wine Membership 

If Dad loves his wine, he’ll love a membership into Jeremy Oliver’s library of content. One of Australia’s foremost wine writers and presenters, he is widely read and fully independent. If giving your dad access to the best wine articles and reviews for the best price is your idea of a gift, this membership is the way to give it. And this gift will last longer than his favourite bottle!

A new shirt 

Coolangatta Menswear houses everything your dad needs for a stylish wardrobe. Whether it’s pants, a polo shirt, casual shirt or smart shirt you think he’s in need of, you’ll find it at Coolangatta Menswear. Get him ready for spring and choose a shirt with wide stripes or small squares, both of which will be trending.

GoPro Hero 5 

One of the most powerful and easy to use action cameras GoPro have ever made, the GoPro Hero 5 will certainly make your father feel loved. Its waterproof design delivers amazing photo and video and features voice control, touch display and more. Help hip capture life with this visual treat.


With a cool, dark interior and unbeatable beachfront view, Bin 72 feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of a shopping centre and is the perfect place to take your dad for a meal. Enjoy cuisine with European and Japanese nuances, such as prawn-stuffed zucchini flowers, jamon and mozzarella balls, braised beef and sticky soy pork belly. For dessert, treat his sweet tooth to a chocolate and hazelnut mousse or a vanilla panna cotta with salted popcorn crumble. Yum!

Crab & Yabbie Cruising

Give Dad something different this year, and treat him to a day of crabs and yabbies on a Wonder Wednesday cruise with Tweed Endeavour Cruises. He’ll be treated to fishing, crab and yabbie catching, and then a feast of the day’s catch! 

Canvas print or framed photo 

For the dad who prefers to look at the waves instead of ride them, check out Sun & Sea for an amazing canvas print or framed photograph. Artists include Scott Christensen (famous for his original oil paintings), Elizabeth Kyle (visionary surrealism), and Rob Clarke, a self taught artist who paints everything from seascapes and boats to trucks and motorcycles. Dad would love anything you picked up from in there.

New cap 

Get your dad ready for the Commonwealth Games with a new Team Australia sports cap. Set to hit the Gold Coast on 4 April 2018, the Commonwealth Games will bring a ton of sports action to region. From athletics and badminton to cycling, diving, triathlon and squash, he’ll love wearing his memorabilia cap wherever he goes.

The Gift of Fitness

Base Gym Active is now offering group fitness classes like beach bootcamp, Functional XTraining and boxing, and a $12.95 per week membership includes access to all classes. The gym is open 24 hours, 7 days a week, and classes run from 6am to 6:30pm.

Coffee and a shave 

Shout Dad a coffee at The Black Sheep Espresso Baa and then let him be pampered at Edward & Co. Specialising in men’s style haircuts and beard trimmings, he’ll come out feeling a million bucks. Who said pampering gifts were just for mothers?


With an in-house carousel that features 500 surfboards, Quicksilver’s flagship concept store, Boardriders, is your one stop shop for a dad that enjoys the waves. The first Boardriders store in Australia, it houses not just Quicksilver, but other iconic surf and skate brands. If you can’t afford a new board, grab him some wax, a wallet or a board sticker.
