Idea #1: The Gift Of A New Fragrance

Let’s kick off the Father’s Day gift ideas with a new cologne. Ever get a whiff of something that just reminds you instantly of Dad? It happens to us all the time! It could be anything from peppermint Mentos to the lingering scent of a cherry cigar or his favourite cologne. You can never have too many fragrances, so stock Dad up this Father’s Day with some new scents from Edgars or Foschini.

Idea #2: The Gift Of A Good Shave

Leave Dad feeling pampered with an amazing shaving kit. Gift him with the smoothest shaving experience this Father’s Day with the Kellermann 3 Swords Gents Set from Takealot! This kit is the ultimate Men’s Grooming Kit and covers all body shaving and grooming needs, from top to bottom. From taming a hairy chest, arms and legs to trimming in those hard to reach and personal spaces, this kit has grooming gadgets and attachments and is everything you’d want from a shaver.

Idea #3: The Gift Of A Pamper Session

To help Dad unwind, relax and feel like a “new man“, spoil him with a pamper session at Sorbet Man. Their menu includes a variety of relaxing treatments, including shaves, shampoos, massages, skincare regimens, waxes, manicures, pedicures, highlights, manscaping, threading, tinting, facials and even a ‘Grey Out’. If that seems like too much choice, just opt for a Sorbet Man voucher! Father’s Day gift sorted.

Idea #4: The Gift Of A Gadget

No matter what type of dad you have, Mantality will have just the toy he wants this Father’s Day! For the outdoors dad, get the Troika Work Equipment 10-In-1 Multi-Tool. For the sporty dad, get the Skullcandy Push Active True Wireless Earbuds so he can listen to his favourite tunes while he goes for his morning/evening jog. And for the geeky dad, why not spoil him with a Time For Machine Model Building Kit? Who says Father’s Day gifts are boring?

Idea #5: The Gift Of Colourful Socks!

Add a splash of colour to Dad’s everyday suit-and-tie combo with a pair of bright and vibrant Happy Socks! What we love about Happy Socks is that they’re just that – happy. Bright, colourful and oh-so-comfy, they’re always a welcome gift. We absolutely love the funky look of the multi-coloured three-pack Bowie gift set, but there are plenty of designs to choose from on Superbalist.

Idea #6: The Gift Of New Tools

Does your dad consider himself a bit of a handyman? Does he love being hands-on, building things and making repairs, adjustments and tweaks to appliances around the house? If yes, why not spoil him with something handy from Builders? Surely there’s a piece of equipment or a few tools that he’s been eyeing for some time. If you’re not sure what he needs in his ever-growing collection of spanners, screwdrivers and hammers, then get him a voucher to spend!


Idea #7: The Gift Of Braai Mastery

If Dad wants to perfect his braaiing skills, then he needs the best braai accessories and tools on the market, and there is no better place to find those than at Yuppiechef. From wood chips and braai utensils to Weber accessories and a PotjieKing cooker, there are plenty of options to choose from. And if he’s a whizz in the kitchen, you’ll find kitchen goodies for Africa!

Idea #8: The Gift Of A Whisky

Celebrate your fatherly figure the best way you know how, by raising a glass of his favourite tipple this Father’s Day. And if you’d like to add a personalised twist to his favourite brand, visit NetFlorist and take a look at their various customised gift options. When it comes to whisky, you can take your pick from Jack Daniels, Scottish Leader, Johnnie Walker, Talisker, Bells, Jameson, Famous Grouse and many more.

They’ve got everything from Thomas Sabo and Nomination Italy to Ice-Watch and even gift cards if you’re not too sure what to get him when it comes to wrist timepieces. The gift cards will give him the freedom to choose the perfect watch to suit his style.
