There’s nothing quite like the relationship between a son and father. Between the rugby banter, trying to out-eat one another, and finding out who’s the better braaimaster competition, the bond between the men of the house is something quite special and amazing.
Therefore, it’s only right that you make the most of Father’s Day to let that pops of yours know that you love him, and can do anything he can do better too (that’s optional).
We’ve rounded up five awesome gifts that can make the upcoming Father’s Day something to remember.
WeWOOD Chucky wooden watch
Dads love watches (totally scientific fact), and with wooden watches being the new cool thing, getting your father a solid-quality wooden timepiece is a great gift idea. Designed and made in Italy, this eco-friendly watch is made from 100% high-quality wood and every time a watch is bought, WeWOOD plants a tree. Epic.
Beer bread mix
Men bond best in the kitchen, believe it or not, but finding the right thing to cook or bake is the real key. The answer is: beer bread. Barrett’s Ridge artisanal beer bread mix is locally made, scrumptious and simple – just add beer and a mixing arm. It’s the perfect gift for a braai-loving father looking to impress.
Oh-Lief Pamper Hamper
Whether we like to admit it or not, us guys do love getting pampered. If your dad loves his creams and washes, check out Oh-lief’s range of Natural Body products for men. They are made from 100% natural and organic, raw ingredients, sourced locally. This hamper includes Body Wash, Body Lotion, Bath & Body Oil, Hand Lotion, Heel Balm and Body Wax. All products are animal-cruelty-free and organic.
One gift that always goes down well, no matter what, is biltong. But what’s better than a single pack of billies? Six. This package gifts the receiver 500gm of the best cuts of beef biltong sliced or whole, delivered to their front step once a month for 6 months.
If your dad is the working-man but has an edge to his fashion-style (or perhaps looking for one), then check out Sexy Socks to go with his suit. Sexy Socks is where your ankles meet your social conscience. Not only are these funky socks 100% Bamboo but they’re also helping make the world a better place. For every pair of Sexy Socks bought, a pair of school socks will be given to a child in one of South Africa’s township schools.
And if none of these will do for your dad, simply enter some details about his personality into the Tidy & Co. Gift Finder, and you’ll automatically get a personalised recommended list of gifts he’ll love.
