Traditional Gifting Ideas For Father’s Day


It’s almost Father’s Day – have you found the perfect present? If you’re still on the hunt, check out these Father’s Day gifting ideas to spoil your old man on his special day! They’re a mix of traditional and modern, so there’s bound to be something he’ll love.  

Father's Day

The Gift Of A New Fragrance

Ever get a whiff of something that 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 Red Square, Edgars or Foschini.

The Gift Of A Good Shave

Leave dad feeling pampered with high-quality products from the Dermalogica Shaving System. Not only do they offer the best shave possible, they also provide the best skincare needed for before and after a shaving regimen. Shaving can cause a lot of trauma to the skin – think ingrown hairs, irritation, redness and that post-shave burn or itch – so why not gift him with products that’ll soothe and relieve?

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.

The Gift Of A Gadget

No matter what type of dad you have, the Gadget Shop will have just the toy he wants this Father’s Day! For the Camper Dad, get the Goal Zero G10 Plus Solar Recharging Kit. For the Sporty Dad, Otium Bluetooth Sports Headphones for when he does for his evening jog, and for the Brainy Dad, a Metal Earth Model to build when he’s looking for a little bit of a challenge. Who says Father’s Day gifts are boring?

The Gift Of Colourful Socks!

Add a splash of colour to dad’s everyday suit-and-tie combo with a pair of 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 Disco Tribe Anniversary Socks, but there are plenty of designs to choose from on Zando.

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!

The Gift Of Braai Mastery

One last gifting idea for good measure… 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!
