Happy feasting!

If you've never indulged in Geldhof's rich and creamy Belgian chocolate, you've been missing out. Their factory stores are our go-to for Easter and Christmas goodies, as well as Mother's and Father's Day spoils. We sometimes also pop by just to pick up a pack of their delicious dark chocolate brownies (try them, trust us). Of course, in recent months we haven't been able to visit them in-store as much as we would've liked. But their new online store feature has come in handy for all those chocolate emergencies!

Under level 3 lockdown, a number of Geldhof's stores have reopened to the public, as well. In the run up to Father's Day, make sure to stop by to find a fantastic selection of dad-friendly chocolate gifts. Here are our top picks from their 2020 Father's Day offerings:

Geldhof

Chocolate Moustache 

Dads are notoriously cheeky. Tease your pops with one of these chocolate moustaches on a stick. It's a quirky gag gift perfect to go with a pair of funky socks. Get one for yourself too, and get Dad to pose for a few Father's Day selfies with your yummy moustache accessories.

42-Piece Assorted Truffles Box

Geldhof truffles are divine. Spoil Dad with this 42-piece assorted crate which includes white chocolate truffles, milk chocolate balls and dark chocolate bites. These are ideal as an after-dinner treat or quick snack. If your dad is the type to hunt for something sweet after his supper, this is the best possible gift you could give him this Father's Day.

Kanonkop Kadette Wine Hamper

If you're looking to go all out this Father's Day, you can't go wrong with the Kanonkop Kadette Wine Hamper. This is the kind of gift to be enjoyed by a super cool, sophisticated dad. It comes with a bottle of Kanonkop Kadette, one box of 250g assorted chocolates, a packet of chocolate-covered nuts, five hazelnut logs and a 45g chocolate bar. The hamper comes in a dark oak box where Dad can keep all his secret treasures once he's done devouring his yummy chocolates. This is a definite winner in our opinion!

Father's Day With A Difference 

How much effort do you usually put into making Father's Day special for your dad? We know that dads can be awkward about receiving gifts and being spoiled, but that's no excuse not to make them feel loved and appreciated on this special day. Dads are often our most unsung heroes, always there to pick us up when life gets us down. Celebrate your dad for the super man he is this Father's Day by organising a few special treats for delivery from The Victorian Secret.

This chic bakery and restaurant, located in Benoni, is one of our ultimate spots for a classy brunch in the city. Of course, due to lockdown regulations, you won't be able to treat Dad to a sit-down breakfast. However, this does not mean that the celebrations shouldn't go ahead as planned. The Victorian Secret now offers delivery and curbside collection on an array of their best pastries, platters and pre-made meals - everything you could possibly need to make this Father's Day the best you've ever pulled off!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CA5VcV6HBld/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Bouquets And Boards

While we may have to celebrate Father's Day at home or from a distance this year, you can still show Dad just how much you love him with one of The Victorian Secret's specialty bouquets. No, you won't be gifting Dad with pretty peonies, but a fine selection of biltong and droewors instead! These quirky bouquets are sure to put a smile on his face, as you present him with his very own edible gift.

If your dad is a cheese and wine kind of man, order a delectable platter from The Victorian Secret to enjoy before a Father's Day braai. Their assorted cheese board comes with a selection of cold meat, biltong, cheese, preserves, fresh fruit and crackers. Pop open a bottle of his favourite wine and enjoy together.

Afternoon Tea

Do dads participate in afternoon tea rituals? You bet they do! Deck out your dining room table with a scrumptious selection of sweet and savoury treats from The Victorian Secret's high tea menu. We've got our eye on mini boerie rolls, Thai green curry pinwheels, mini filled croissants and berry cheesecake for dessert. You can order as many tidbits as you like from the menu, so whether your dad is a savoury guy or a complete sweet tooth, there should be something to tickle his fancy.

Fancy Dinner

Dad deserves a fine dining dinner to wrap up his day. Rather than spend all day slaving away in the kitchen, spend quality time with your dad while The Victorian Secret whips up your dinner. You can order one of their prepared meals in advance, so you'll be super prepared for Father's Day. We like the sound of the Oxtail Stew served with your choice of rice or garlic mash. Available in small and large portions, this is the perfect winter warmer to spoil Dad with.

Victorian Secret

Father's Day

Our dads are our heroes and as such, they deserve fantastic father's day gifts. But somehow they're always so difficult to shop for. Whether's he's a gadget geek, an outdoor fanatic, a bit of a nerd, the guy who always saves the day or just your dad, we have something he'll love.

We all love spoiling our kids, from their baby shower all the way until adulthood.

Wedding Presents

For a great engagement gift or for the perfect wedding present, why not spoil the couple with gifts for their new home? That way, they will always remember you as they grow from strength to strength, from moving in together, to having their first child, to the time they retire.

Hobbies

If you still can't find a gift, even after all these guides, then perhaps consider gifts based on their hobbies. Try finding awesome outdoor gifts, gifts for writers or what about gifts for car enthusiasts? These gifts will be greatly appreciated and put to good use, too.

Father's Day shopping can be tricky. Most dads know exactly what they like, but they are hardly able to explain their style to anyone who asks. Some even refuse to accept gifts at all. If you are at a loss over what to get for your dad, Bella Luna is there for you. Spoil your old man with a gift card. Card values range from R250 - R5 000, and you can even have the card delivered to your dad on Father's Day. Otherwise, pick it up from your nearest Bella Luna store and gift it to him yourself.

Father's Day Lunches Around The City

If you're looking for Father's Day Lunch events around the city, don't you worry. We've got you covered with everything you need. Just make sure you visit this Father’s Day Lunches Across The City article for just that. This Father's Day is going to be great. And once again, thanks dad!

Let’s face it, we all work hard and need the opportunity to blow off some steam. But how many of us draw a blank when trying to think of something different to do? Father’s Day is the ideal opportunity to get Dad to try something new – here are a few ideas:

Bridge Swing

How about getting Dad to jump off a bridge in Krugersdorp? This one is definitely not for the faint-hearted, as it involves leaping off a 45m platform before swinging like a pendulum. If that's a little too extreme, abseiling and paintball are also on offer.

GorgeGlide

Just 30 minutes outside of Joburg lies a fantastic zipline adventure that crisscrosses the Muningi Gorge. There are a number of different options, depending on how brave Dad is. But no matter the choice, you'll be stunned by the views - which are nothing short of spectacular!

Kloofing

Kloofing basically involves moving down a kloof by hiking, climbing, jumping, bouldering, abseiling and swimming. It’s a fantastic outdoor adventure for fit dads!

Adrenaline Gift Guide for Dad

Ziplining

If it’s ziplining you’re after, then Ama Zwing Zwing Zip Lines is the place to go. Simply put, you get to zipline over beautiful scenery and do a spot of game viewing while "floating" up high. The venue is just 40 minutes from Joburg and really worth the drive.

Quad Biking

This is always a win and never gets old. This particular company offers quads for kids, teens and adults, as well as the option to book a private champagne picnic in the bushveld (rose petals and heart cushions are optional if you feel like being romantic)!

Adrenaline Gift Guide for Dad

Beach Volleyball

Who knew that Joburg had its own private beach? This innovative venue is the perfect spot for the family to play – and Dad might even want to join the four-a-side or six-a-side leagues!

Archery

The Archers of Zoo Lake offer training, coaching and an outdoor range that caters for distances of up to 90m. Your equipment can be rented on site, plus there’s the option of taking part in club tournaments if Dad decides that he’d like to take it up as a sport!

Adrenaline Gift Guide for Dad
