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.
Well, fellas, Father’s Day is coming this weekend and if you’re wondering what to get to treat yo’ poppa, MenStuff has highlighted some awesome items that should do the trick.
Gift of a gentleman
If your dad is a whiskey drinker, there’s no doubt he’d love a bottle of Jack Daniel’s finest, Gentleman Jack (R299). And what’s better is that you can even personalise the bottle this Father’s Day! To purchase a bottle of Gentleman Jack and personalise a message to your dad, go to any of the participating Makro stores on the 16 June (between 14:00 to 18:00) and 17 June (between 10:00 to 15:00), and you can put your very-own special message to your pops on the bottle for his special day.
The Swiss Army Knife for facial hair
Every dad has that vintage one-blade razor he refuses to give up, but what most dads really need is a good beard trimmer to take their face-fuzz game to the next level. This Remington beard trimming kit (R639) includes all the accessories you need to style and groom your beard with ease: an electric trimmer with titanium coated blade, adjustable combs to handle different beard lengths and types, a pair of premium stainless steel scissors will help to trim down your beard before you shape and trim, and a mixed boar bristle brush allows you to brush through your beard before and after styling.
The gift of power
Sometimes, the smallest, most practical gifts are the best; and while most dads are always scratching around in drawers, looking for batteries for some old appliance they’re trying to revive, a great gift is an Energizer rechargeable battery set (R199). Whether it be to give some much-needed fuel for TV remotes, clock radios, or power tools, having rechargeable batteries is a game-changer.
Toys for the boys
If your dad is a lover of flying things, remote control toys, and photography, then it’s definitely time he steps into the world of drones. weFix has the world’s most advanced drone, the new DJI Spark (R8,699), available on its online store. Words don’t really capture how incredible this little quadcopter is, so we’ll let the video below do the talking:
For the kitchen-man
If you want to skip the tie and socks and surprise him with something that will help him sink his teeth into some great food, check out Jamie Oliver’s steak knife set (R499). The high quality blades will help slide through steak with ease, and with 4 different coloured handles, they will certainly brighten up your dining table. If you are looking for a more ‘everyday use’ gift, the Baccarat Espresso Maker (R329) is the perfect item! You could even use it to treat your dad to the perfect espresso on Father’s Day.
You can grab both the Jamie Oliver Steak Knife set and the Baccarat Espresso Maker from @Home’s online store.
We’re also giving away a box of epic Rocky Road cupcakes from The Velvet Cake Co.! If you want to find out more about that competition, check it out HERE.
