Fathers Day is fast approaching, the annual day to celebrate all the incredible paternal figures in our lives. It is a chance to show your gratitude for all the things our Fathers do for us every day, both big and small. This year make it truly special with a thoughtful gift, outing or activity you can enjoy together that matches his interests and sets you up for a memorable Sunday (September 4th - just a diary reminder!)
The best gifts come from the heart, so it is worth putting some time aside to consider what your Dad would like to do or what will really surprise him! With Father’s day always falling on a Sunday, it's the perfect opportunity to let him put his feet up! Organising a BBQ with the family is a stellar idea; stock up on his favourite foods and beverages and choose an epic location, maybe a beachfront set-up, at the local park or even in your backyard. Allow Dad to do his thing on the grill or take full charge and let him feel like a King for the day. Match this with our Stone & Wood Beer Hamper, packed full of premium beers and tasty snacks he can try out at leisure.
If your Dad is a bit of a car or vehicle fanatic, then why not hire out a luxury sports car for the day? Multiple private dealerships allow you to take one out for a drive, from sports cars and convertibles to brand-new SUVs. Make all his driving dreams come true and find a scenic route to make the most of the journey. Pair this with a lunch destination for the ultimate day out together. If you prefer to have a beer or two but be around the sound and energy of some serious engines, then booking a weekend away to see the Australian Grand Prix will be a winner of a trip! Hosted in Melbourne means you can enjoy all the city has to offer, from restaurants, pubs, and galleries; this will be a great couple of days bonding time with your old man!
Perhaps a weekend away camping is more your style; take Dad away from the hustle and bustle and immerse yourselves in nature. Some of your earliest memories are likely those spent with your family on mini holidays in the bush or at the coast, where you got back to basics and embarked on a true adventure! With an unending list of incredible locations across the country, no matter where you are, there will be some epic campsites you can travel to. Pack up the car with fishing rods, surfboards and hiking boots for a fun-filled few days. Treat your Dad with some new camping gear that he can take on his future trips; a set of binoculars, a comfortable chair for around the campfire or a slick stubby holder are a few ideas to get you started!
At the end of the day, quality time is what really matters; even if you keep it simple and pop out for a game of golf, opt for a pub lunch or help him with a project, he will relish the company and sentiment more than anything.
